Today’s televisions are more versatile than ever. Thanks to wireless connectivity, integrated Web browsers, and innovative remote controls, new LCD and plasma TVs make it easy to do things like streaming season one of “Homeland” and updating your Facebook status. You can even post tweets or check out online auctions on your TV.
Consumer Reports is happy to report that those new capabilities don’t come at the expense of performance. Most televisions that Consumer Reports tested have excellent or very good high-definition picture quality and at least decent sound.
