Samsung KN55S9 Smart OLED TV

Who makes it: Samsung 

What it costs: $9,000 

Why we like it: Clearly, the world isn't flat when it comes to this TV's stylishly curved 55-inch screen and speaker system built into the surrounding frame. Using the relatively new organic light-emitting diode technology, the S9 might be the best TV on the market. The TV has all the color clarity and rich, deep blacks of plasma technology and the pixel manipulation of LED. An especially cool feature lets users don special active-shutter 3-D glasses, which allow one viewer to see one thing and another person something else at the same time. One quibble: The fantastic detail makes motion blur more noticeable and jarring, but if this technology is the future, we're all in.
