  1. Toshiba 37X3030 review

    Toshiba 37X3030 review

    9  

    The 37X3030 wears its main attractions very much on its sleeve. It's a full HD 37in LCD TV that costs only £1,000 - the price you'd expect to pay on a same-size HD Ready TV. But does it have anything else to commend it?

    Sony KDL-26S2010 review

    This is one of the more expensive models on test, not that you can tell. Armed with a single HDMI input, Sony's addition to its burgeoning Bravia range of LCD TVs is Scrooge-like in its provisions.

    Sharp LC-37RD2E review

    This is the only TV in the group test to use 100Hz image processing, which doubles the usual TV scanning rate to eliminate LCD's bugbear of juddery motion.

    Sharp LC-26SD1E review

    8  

    Producer of some of the finest LCD TVs of late, Sharp has a new 26in offering, which is rather an understated affair. Gone is the metallic look of old, replaced here by the gloss black that is becoming standard in flatscreen circles.

    Samsung LE32R87BD review

    If sales are the ultimate compliment to a product's designers then Samsung's LCD team can rest on its laurels. But while the public buy its TVs in spades, reviews have been more favourable for Samsung's competitors.

    Sometimes we wonder if we should change the name of What HDTV to What Panasonic such has been the quality of the brand's HD-ready TVs during the past few years.

    If you're charging a premium price for a TV, make sure it offers something special. Otherwise, why would anyone want to buy it? German-brand, Loewe, however, seems to have other ideas.

    Based on LG's famous 'chocolate' mobile phone that filled the pockets of thousands of children last year, this 60in plasma takes some beating for style.

    LG 37LF66 review

    6  

    LG's 37LF66 is a full HD LCD TV costing just £1,000, so it has what may be seen as an unfair advantage over our other three contenders. But can it make that benefit count?

    JVC LT-37DG8 review

    8  

    The 37DG8 is one of JVC's less exciting options. Its resolution is a standard 1,366 x 768 and there's no 100Hz. It doesn't even have the highest level of JVC's DynaPix picture processing engine...

    JVC LT-26DA8BJ review

    8  

    With a slightly over-designed look that's at odds with the sleek, black look that's become so popular, the LT-26DA8BJ is not the best looking of the LCDs out there.

    Few people in their right mind are going to invest in Sky HD, a Blu-ray player, or an HD DVD machine unless they're planning to hook their kit up to a screen that's capable of offering a good impression of the high definition experience. Maybe we're wrong.

    Evesham is a British company known for its PC equipment. In recent years, it has embraced the world of high-definition television and it keeps on getting better.

    Bush LCD15W008HD review

    This screen is very easy to set up, although as the sockets are located in a recess on the back panel, we did have to spend some time bending our HDMI cable into a shape that could be plugged in easily.

    B & O BeoVision 8 review

    6  

    At around £1,800 this is the priciest TV on test. It's also one of the most disappointing, in terms of versatility. While most of the TVs here have two HDMIs, the BV8 has just one.

    Pioneer PDP-428XD review

    9  

    Can the first 42-inch model from Pioneer's 'KURO' range make the same level of impact the brand's 50-inch model did? The ultra-minimal and high-gloss black design of the PDP-428XD is an exercise in opulent elegance

    Well, it's about time. Sony has tried to keep us quiet with a range of 'Bravia v1.5' models in recent months, but we've really been chomping at the bit to get our hands on its new LCD TVs proper. And that day has now arrived

    Samsung TVs are consistently among the prettiest around, and the PS42Q97HD is a chip off the uber-stylish old block.Its connections will set your pulse racing too, since they include three HDMIs

    Impressively, LG's new LCD screen has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. But that doesn't automatically make it the best of the bunch.The 42LF66's design is great; a really sleek combination of high-gloss finish and unusually slender chassis

    JVC has put a lot of store behind its D-ILA technology rear-pros, butit still knows a thing or to about LCD flatpanels. How does this £1,00042in model rate against the competition?

    Here's a preface: we liked this TV so much, we bought one. A journalist spending £900 is not something that happens often, but there's a good reason in this case. Firstly, an utterly unbelievable spec, starting with a 15000:1 contrast ratio

    The arrival of Panasonic's latest IDTV prompts the popping of champagne corks; the Viera TH-42PX70 is the first HD Ready 42in plasma TV from the manufacturer to hit the £1,000 threshold.

    LG's latest 42in IDTV offering, the 42PC55, is the UK's cheapest big-brand plasma, a wallet-friendly £900. It's a great price for a big-screen TV, but our sensors were on red alert, as we're convinced that something has to give

    Spotted selling online for about £750, this is one of the UK's most affordable plasmas. That's hardly a shock coming from Hitachi, a company that has made its name offering low prices and high quality
