A television should never be an impulse buy—it should be an investment. For those that want the very best in TV technology, a company's flagship model is the way to go. Yes, these high-end televisions are some of the most expensive out there, but they showcase the best technology that a company has to offer in terms of picture quality, contrast, and motion performance, as well as design, smart features, and 3D performance. It represents its manufacturer for at least an entire year, and sets the tone for the less-expensive models in any lineup, too.

We have tested and reviewed each company's flagship models as of 2012, and sorted through the data to find the hands-down best TV. If you want to know more about how we test and rank all of the TVs that come through out labs, check out our How We Test page.
