    Panasonic TX-32LMD70 review

    8  

    The mantelpiece round at Panasonic HQ must be at breaking point, considering the number of accolades that have gone its way. So, with the arrival of the neat-looking TX-32LMD70, is the manufacturer going to walk away with yet another gong?

    JVC LT-32DA8BJ review

    8  

    If we've grumbled at the price of JVC LCD TVs in the past, we're eating our words at the sight of the manufacturer's entry to this group test: the LT-32DA8BJ weighs in at a slender £700, which is exceptionally good value.

    Humax LP32-TDR1 review

    8  

    The Humax 32in LP32-TDR1 has an unfair advantage over its rivals: it comes with a built-in hard disk drive (HDD) and two digital TV tuners.The implications of this are far-reaching in the flatscreen world, as it ups the ante as to what we expect an HDTV to deliver

    Hitachi P42T01 review

    8  

    The P42T01 is the latest in a long line of Hitachi plasmas to offer a wealth of features for a low price, and at around £750 online it's the company's most affordable set to date.

    Panasonic TH-42PZ700 review

    Panasonic is one of the few remaining plasma champions; more fool the competition if sets like this are anything to go by. Decked out in elegant gloss black, this full HD digital television is a hymn to all that is good about gas

    LG 20LS3R review

    8  

    It was perhaps asking too much for a TV with the most unusual design in recent memory to offer unbeatable picture quality, but LG comes close with the 20LS3R. Its unique styling centres on its gloss black desktop stand.

    Samsung PS-50Q97 review

    10  

    Although best known for LCD TVs, which sell by the boat load, Samsung also makes plasmas. And by the look of the PS50Q97HD it pays them the same level of attention.

    Pioneer PDP-428XD review

    Back in December What HDTV was lucky enough to sneak a peek at Pioneer's top-secret new plasma TVs. A viewing of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith in high definition revealed hitherto unseen levels of realism and detail.

    Philips 50PF7521D review

    8  

    We expected the £1,300 barrier for a 50in plasma TV to be broken by the likes of Goodmans, Bush or Hyundai. Yet here we have the £1,299 50PF7521D and it sports no less a name than Philips.

    Hitachi P42T01 review

    The P42T01 is one of the most affordable plasma TVs on the market and, remarkably, Hitachi hasn't skimped on features to reach such an attractive price point.

    Fujitsu P50XHA58EB review

    8  

    Aside from looking pretty in its piano black bezel, the P50XHA58EB doesn't make the greatest first impression. For starters, there's the rather scary £3,300 emblazoned across its price ticket. You don't even get built-in speakers!

    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

    8  

    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

    Sharp LC-37RD2E review

    6  

    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

    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.

    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.
