Along with Samsung, LG is producing some of the most competitive affordable flat screens. The 32LC2D has a few failings but it's still excellent value for money
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.
We had high hopes for this true second-generation Bravia from Sony. But while some elements of its performance are right on the money, it lets itself down surprisingly badly in a couple of key areas, making its premium price point hard to stomach
Philips' new ClearLCD technology takes big-screen LCD picture performance to a new level, especially with high definition. That this picture prowess is joined by a stunning design and a seemingly endless feature count is just the icing on a particularly sweet cake
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.
Supremely stylish and bursting with features, the UE55H8000 produces excellent pictures, but it's very pricey for a Full HD model.
Building on the success of ViewSonic's previous budget LCDs, this is an even cheaper LCD that loses out on high-definition compatibility as a result. Picture quality is very good for the price and it offers component inputs and a very slinky design, making it perfect for the bedroom
