20. Sony XEL-1 –
Cost – $2,500
When it comes to electronics, Sony never fails to disappoint us! Presenting the Sony XEL-1 which has the distinction of being the world’s first OLED TV. It is also the world’s slimmest television with a screen size of 11 inches and has a resolution of 960×540.
The top of the base has 2 speakers with volume and power buttons on the sides. It also has a memory stick slot, 2 HDMI inputs, and a 16-Volt DC input.

The Q950TS by Samsung is one TV that has its own fanbase. Samsung manages to infuse life into the screen by developing a technology that allows the picture to escape into the room. The display boasts 8K image quality and has a resolution of 33 million pixels to give you the best image quality.

Another excellent feature about this system is that you can connect your phone to it and run apps like Netflix and Vudu on it. While it may boast of excellent credentials on its resume, it was highly criticized for its exorbitant pricing on Amazon with users saying that they had to sell their kids to purchase it.
