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'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
The 40-inch Sony Bravia KDL-40EX524 is a decent-enough LED TV. Unfortunately, while it offers excellent Internet features and generally good picture quality, it's let down by its lacklustre audio, backlight inconsistencies and motion blur.
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.
The 55-inch UE55D8000 is another amazing 3D LED TV from Samsung. Those lucky souls who can afford to cough up £2,500 won't be disappointed.
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
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
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
Strong sound and excellent picture quality (once you've fiddled with the picture options) make the Samsung UE32EH5000 a cracking budget TV. It may lack fancy extras like smart TV features and 3D support, but you'll struggle to find a better budget TV than this for under £300.
If you're looking for a TV to use in a bright room during the day, then the 50-inch Panasonic TX-P50X50B is not for you. If you mostly watch TV or movies in the evening in a dimly lit setting, this set delivers great black levels, superbly natural colours and smooth motion for very little outlay.
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
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
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.
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.
Sharp's LC42XD1E is a 1080p-compatible screen built for the latest high-definition DVD players and games consoles, and its image quality is exceptional. People with older AV tech will be restricted by its limited analogue connectivity, but this is a new breed of technology that will deal with anything the future brings
The 46-inch Sony Bravia KDL-46NX713 LED TV looks ace and offers top-class 2D pictures, as well as excellent Internet features. Just don't bother with its unimpressive 3D setting.
While the LG 42PC55 does everything we would expect of a modern flat-panel television, the picture and sound quality let it down
The Toshiba Regza 32AV615DB easily outclasses its budget competition. Those seeking great performance at a budget price should put it at the top of their shopping list
