Sony's previous TV, the KDL-46W3000, was a serious disappointment, with pictures largely ruined by overt smearing and motion blur. So we can't say we're expecting very much from the new 40in KDL-40W4000.
Most household's HAVE more than one TV screen, with second and third sets often located in the bedroom and kitchen, and that's where small panels like this 19in offering from HANNspree ﬁt in.
The InFocus IN80 shouldn't exist. The black-clad DLP light box deﬁnes conventional logic to deliver a full HD resolution, high-spec picture processing and features galore for just £1,300.
Humax's incredible PVR-9200T raised the bar for twin-tuner PVRs when it launched back in 2005, and as a result, the follow-up has been more eagerly awaited than the Second Coming in some quarters. Well, the wait is over with the launch of this model, which hopefully builds on the brilliance of its predecessor.
Sony's latest Bravia screen looks very classy with its subdued 'mocha' colour frame, rounded speaker design and neat grip handle.
This is one of the ﬁnest 37in LCDs ever built. It's loaded with top technology designed to battle LCD's shortcomings and produce a picture as smooth as a plasma's. The high price is partly down to Philips' Ambilight technology, presented here in stereo form. This ingenious sympathetic lighting system is probably one of the main reasons why you might buy this mid-to-high-end LCD TV instead of a Panasonic or a Sony.
Whatever's going on inside the Goodmans GDB9, it's not great on the outside. The silver and black styling gives it a dated faux-high-tech look, and the illuminated channel controls in the centre are designed to be a focal point, but end up making it look tacky. It also feels a little plasticky, but it is slim enough to slot into your system without much hassle. The Grundig wins the cosmetic clash hands down.
Grundig is still producing a very nice line in Freeview receivers. The GUDSTB2000 is a digital set-top box that really looks the part with a sleek, somewhat esoteric design, dressed in a fetching black ﬁnish with a beautifully curved fascia and no clutter, aside from a DVB logo.
Philips has only recently started putting DVB-T tuners inside its recorders, but this neat set-top box looks conﬁdent enough to take you to digital switchover
