Hi, we are looking at upgrading a new 50 or 55" LCD/LED tv. Needs to be able do Skype with Camera(external is fine), Stream DLNA content from Serviio and record to USB drive for the odd Freeview show. Currently doing similar with 40" Samsung Smart TV UA40D6600.

Not fussed on 3D, web access or apps.
 
Would appreciate any recommendations/advice please of which is best brand to buy, and/or model?   Have a budget of around $2-3k. 


Cheers.

Samsung / Panasonic / LG = All 2013 TV's from these guys seem to be doing most things well in the smart front. Sure it's no computer replacement, but for what you want to do, you'll be fine.
Judge it by the picture quality first, smarts second...

They are all sluggish IME, as the user interface gets run thru the same lag producing processing that the image you are displaying does.
