  • ViewSonic VT4210: A Thin, Attractive LED HDTV

This 42-inch set sports an antiglare, antireflective TFT active-matrix LCD and 1080p image resolution, but it also has zero Web features, few input ports, and less-than-excellent speakers. The VT4210 (about $750 as of March 18, 2011) is surprisingly thin and light, however, so if it's a basic TV you're seeking, this may be the one.
