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.
No TV delivers the same level of picture quality for the price of the LG 55EG9100.
We set about testing this first model from Sony's new Bravia range with bated breath, hoping against hope that the reams of new technology it boasts might finally lift Sony to somewhere near the top of the LCD pile. And we're chuffed to report that it succeeds in this lofty aim quite superbly
Sony's KDL-40W2000 has set a new benchmark for large screen displays. The full 1080p specification is equipped for the future while LCD image quality has never looked this good
Samsung's PS50Q97HD is a good buy if you want the maximum visual impact for your money. The picture isn't perfect, but it does redeem itself with better than average Freeview performance
Samsung's LE32R74 can claim to be less compromised than most budget screens. It's better looking with more high-end features than you would typically find at this price -- a great bargain all-round
For those who can't afford one of Sony's exceptional X4500 LED-backlit TVs, the fantastic functionality and performance of the surprisingly affordable Bravia KDL-46W5500 should do the trick. It's just a shame that Sony's online system isn't as good as those of its rivals
Pioneer's PDP 427XDE is the class-leading plasma. Stunning image quality independent of source material is supported by a timeless design, future-proof specification and state-of-the-art technology -- eat your heart out LCD
Panasonic's TX-32LXD60 is definitely on the short list of the better LCDs out there. However, at the steep end of the price spectrum it has some talented rivals that offer greater functionality and more natural performance
Sony isn't a prolific plasma manufacturer, and it shows on the KE-P42M1. It's clearly aimed at the budget market, so it lacks many notable features and has a low panel resolution. Wega Engine technology saves the day on performance, making analogue sources very acceptable, but for anyone who's even remotely interested in high definition, this would make a very poor investment
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.
The lack of a 'Full HD' resolution is slightly disappointing, but everything else about the Panasonic Viera TH-50PX70 is highly impressive: the picture quality is superb, and build quality and design are top class. Finding a better flat-screen TV for the price is going to be difficult
The Toshiba Regza 32RV635DB is a really likeable TV for a fairly sensible price. A 1080p resolution is totally unnecessary on a 32-inch TV, but that's hardly an issue when you aren't paying through the nose for it. This TV will appeal to PlayStation 3 owners who want 1080p gaming, and probably to Blu-ray fans who don't have room for a larger TV. We also think the simple remote with large buttons makes this a good choice for older people or those who don't aren't technically inclined
Everyone likes a bargain, and Samsung's LE32R41BD is perhaps the best of the year. It wraps a Freeview tuner, high-definition compatibility and a very solid picture in one gorgeously modern chassis, while not skimping on picture quality or features
The Panasonic Viera TX-32LXD80 has a good range of inputs, a neat SD card slot for viewing photos and is a strong performer when it comes to picture quality. It's let down slightly by its lacklustre sound and design, however
Sony's KDL-32V2000 may be priced at the premium end of the spectrum, but beneath an average looking specification lies some of the most advanced LCD technology. Coupled with a beautiful design, user-friendly functionality and superlative performance it sets a new LCD standard
The incredibly expensive OLED-powered LG EG9600 series delivers the best picture quality we've ever tested.
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.
