Panasonic Viera TX-47AS740

It doesn't deliver the deep black levels and rich contrast that we'd expect at this price. Add in the fact that its implementation of the Freetime on-demand service feels half-baked and you're left with a TV that just isn't worth the high asking price.

Sony Bravia KDL40W605

If you're after excellent picture quality at a reasonable price, the KDL-42W705 really delivers. It lacks extras such as 3D support and advanced motion processing, but its price reflects this and overall picture quality is still very strong.

Sony Bravia KDL42W705

Despite its very reasonable price, the KDL-42W705 produces extremely good pictures thanks to its accurate colours, deep black levels and strong handling of shadow detail. It lacks the 42W829's superior motion processing and 3D support, but if your budget doesn't stretch that far you won't be disappointed with the 42W705.

Sony Bravia KD65X9005B

Sony's KD-65X9005B produces really stunning picture quality, not just with UltraHD video, but also with Blu-rays and HD broadcasts. Its sound quality is top notch too thanks to its meaty speakers. The chunky design, 3D performance and smart TV system could be better, but despite these weaknesses, it's still another very impressive TV from Sony.

Sony Bravia KDL-55W955

Despite good sound quality and an improved menu system, the KDL-55W955 remains a letdown in the picture department compared to other high-end TVs, as its black levels and contrast performance just aren't anywhere near good enough to justify its substantial asking price.

Sony KDL-50W829

The 50W829 puts in an excellent performance thanks to its deep black levels, rich contrast and perky colours. It also largely avoids blotchiness in the backlighting, unlike most other LED TVs. It's only the set's uninspired smart TV system and mediocre sound quality that stop it from scoring even higher.

Sony SA-NS510

The potential to use Sony SA-NS510 wireless speakers to create a multi-room audio system via free Android and iOS apps is impressive. It's handy that the speaker can be run from either the mains or battery power. But we'll reserve our judgement until pricing is announced.
