You've seen the video and you've read the entire How We Test document top to bottom. Now take the photo tour.

As CNET's two-man HDTV reviews team gears up to take on the panels of 2012 , we thought we'd pause to give you a taste of the place where the magic of evaluation happens: our lab. We just vacuumed and we're pretty proud of the results.

While you peruse the slideshow, be sure to credit the always superb work photographer Sarah Tew, whose inspired images make the freshest use of the fish-eye lens since Shake Your Rump.
