REVIEW

Samsung UE55H8000

Supremely stylish and bursting with features, the UE55H8000 produces excellent pictures, but it's very pricey for a Full HD model.

Sony KDL-42W829B
REVIEW

Sony KDL-42W829B

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.

Finlux 40F8073-T
REVIEW

Finlux 40F8073-T

Despite having a price that's between £50 and £100 cheaper than similar models from Samsung and LG, the Finlux 40F8073-T manages to put in a strong picture performance and also has a stylish design. It's a good budget buy.

REVIEW

Samsung UE46F6500

The UE46F6500 is a great TV thanks to its stylish design, strong picture quality and excellent smart TV system. If you don't need the Freesat tuner though, you can save yourself some cash and get the F6400, which offers similar features and picture performance for less money.

REVIEW

Samsung UE40F6800

The UE40F6800 represents a good compromise between price, feature count and picture quality, so it's a great buy for people who were considering a stylish, high-end TV like Samsung's F7000, but baulked at its high price.

Panasonic TX-L65WT600B
REVIEW

Panasonic TX-L65WT600B

The TX-L65WT600B has a slick design, a DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0 connection, but its edge dimming system is unsophisticated and black levels below par. It's not the convincing 4K package I was hoping for.

Toshiba 39L4353DB
REVIEW

Toshiba 39L4353DB

Toshiba's 39L4353 is far from perfect. It lacks the ability to reproduce deep black levels (robbing its pictures of extra richness), its menu system is sluggish and its smart TV system below par. If you mainly watch TV in a bright room however, and use an external set top box for your TV and on-demand services, then its shortcomings will be less obvious and its rock-bottom price of £400 makes it much more tempting.

Sony KD 65X9005A
REVIEW

Sony KD 65X9005A

The Sony KD-65X9005 is an excellent TV that produces some of the best pictures we've seen on an LED set. It also has fantastic Full HD passive 3D support and speakers that really do produce excellent audio. It's very expensive though, and the benefits of its 4K resolution at this screen size are extremely minor. Plus its HDMI ports don’t currently support V2.0 of the HDMI standard, although an update is on the way.

Panasonic TX-P42ST60E
REVIEW

Panasonic TX-P42ST60E

The Panasonic TX-P42ST60 is a superb TV for the money. Its picture performance puts many sets costing twice as much to shame thanks to its excellent colour handling and deep black levels. It also has decent sound quality, easy to use menus and a premium design. The only slight downside is that its smart TV system is light on catch-up TV apps.
