  1. Polaroid TLU-03723B review

    Polaroid TLU-03723B review

    4  

    Polaroid, the brand most famous for producing those instant cameras so popular with partygoers and pranksters, has branched out into LCD televisions. The TLU-03723B is an ultra affordable set and looks that way, with a flimsy and unattractive chassis of mattblack plastic, but no-one’s ever won five stars just for being pretty.

    Sharp LC-46X20EAD review

    Most of this 46in LCD TV’s peers have more advanced features, but who cares when a screen this big is edging its way down to the magic £1,000 mark?

    The Aurea is like nothing else on the market. You may have seen Philips' Ambilight backlighting system before, but this, the firm's latest flagship model, takes things to a new level

    Sharp LC-46X20E review

    Just as Full HD televisions are emerging as a mainstream product, Sharp has knocked out a ‘budget version’. However, to keep costs low, this particular screen dispenses with the current buzzword in LCD TV technology, '100Hz processing'

    Samsung PS-63P76FD review

    8  

    Samsung currently lays claim to a sizeable amount of flatscreen territory. It has planted its flag in the super-continent that is mainstream LCD and has been a pragmatic supplier of populist plasmas. Now it wants a piece of the big-screen plasma pie

    Toshiba 47WLT66 review

    8  

    Finding a TV with more on-paper appeal than Toshiba's 47WLT66 is a struggle. Aside from the attraction of a 47-inch screen, it employs an HD-loving 1920x1080 pixel count, and comes from the same range as Toshiba's acclaimed 42WLT66.

    Sharp wades into this battle of the big boys all guns blazing with this 46-incher - a gem of a Full HD LCD TV. It's made all the more glittering by the two grand pricetag and has only a couple of niggles to its name.

    Toshiba has resurrected its slim design for its XF series of LCD TVs where the black gloss bezel measures a mere 23mm. This not only makes it look exceptionally stylish, but also increases the perceived screen size and makes it remarkably compact

    Fujitsu P50XHA58EBb review

    8  

    It's a tough world in TV land right now, and you need to adapt to survive. Cue Fujitsu taking the relatively unusual step of revisiting one of its existing plasma models, the P50XHA58EB, and adding an extra little 'b' on the end to signify that it's been through the tweaking machine.

    HANNspree XV32 review

    8  

    This 32in LCD set from Taiwanese brand HANNspree caters for those people who don't need (or can't afford) loads of flashy, cutting-edge features. The stripped-down spec means the XV32 retails for just £359

    Philips 32PFL9632D review

    This LCD set could just be the most feature-heavy 32-incher we've ever seen. It showcases all of the television technology that Philips has been beavering away at for the last couple of years

    Panasonic TX-37LZD70 review

    8  

    Whatever spin Panasonic might try to put on it, the TX-37LZD70 is a bit of a poisoned chalice. For, as a 37in TV using LCD technology, it flies in the face of all the arguments Panasonic has ever put to us about how LCD is no good for screens in excess of 32in.

    LG 47LY95 review

    This probably sounds a bit weird, but to us there seems something rather untidy about the 47in screen size. It just sounds too random, too much as if it's been developed merely to give a 'mine's bigger than yours', two-fingered salute to the more common 46in size.

    The first wave of Kuro's have won acclaim worldwide, so what should we expect from this newly arrived 60in model? Perhaps it's sufficient just to say that this is probably one of the most accomplished TVs in the world

    We live in an age where competition between established CE marques and ascendant Chinese manufacturers has now become so intense that each is trying to outdo the other with fancy-sounding proprietary technologies

    32in LCDs are now popular choices, offering a lot of screen for little outlay (both financially and in space terms). So much, in fact, that they're rapidly becoming commodities rather than luxury lifestyle products.

    Pioneer calls its new plasma TVs 'Kuro', as Kuro is Japanese for black. Not because they're dressed in gorgeous high gloss black (though they are), but rather because Pioneer says they deliver the finest black level performance - by miles - of any flat TV

    Usually we aren't particularly bothered about how much things cost. Not because we've got more money than sense or anything - it's just that our love of AV is such that we find ourselves reluctant to compromise on performance standards to save a few bob.
