I have found you can read all the reviews you want, but everybodies eyes are different. Your best bet is to go shopping and find one you like.

when you say reading are you talking about continual reading over the space of a few hours, ie, ebooks?

My algorithm would be like this:
1) Define price range and minimum specs you want
2) Google those minimum specs, and see what you got
3) Read a few reviews, but because they might be biased
4) Read people critics (1 star) and prays (5 stars)
5) Choose a model, and if possible see it in real life in any store
6) Buy it!

Amazon.com is an excellent source for unbiased reviews. They carry most most models and some of the reviewers are very knowledgeable. All of the major brand LCD TVs (Samsung, LG, Sony, Toshiba, and Vizio) are very good to excellent.

What's best for you is one that fits your budget and has a display you like. There are some excellent buys available now as manufacturers clear out 2010 models and try to unload their inventory of 3D TVs which did not sell as expected during the Christmas season.

reading reviews can only do so much. Unless you can actually look at the tv set you like the sound of, you may find that aesthetically it doesn't suit your need. Also reviews may not report the overall dimensions of the tv, so when you go and look, take a tape measure.
Other points to consider: plasma tv's use more power than lcd's, but are brighter and have better contrast ratios, but are heavier, so if you want to wallmount it, more care is needed
Ensure you have more than enough ports to connect your devices

Yeah read the reviews

then go into a store and ask them to put the tv's next to each other and play different types of media, Normaltv - bluRay- Sat-DVD etc. then make a call.

Thats How I bought mine... I found that some Tv's that were incredible on paper actualy didnt perform great best way is to see visually
