Sharp Aquos HD LC-48LE551U 48-inch LED

This 1080p LED set doesn't have much in the way of features, but it represents just how much image quality, as well as how much screen size (48 inches), you can currently get for just $500. And though it's one of the only models we're highlighting without the ability to connect directly to the Internet, for those who already have an Apple TV, Roku, game console or other device that streams video, it's a feature that won't be missed, while also keeping that price tag so astonishingly low.
