    Panasonic TX-L37ET5 review

    By 20 April 2012

    Firmly in the Smart VIERA LED stable, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Japanese manufacturer's marrying of VIERA Connect, 3D and DLNA home networking make this a classic Panasonic LCD TV. It might shock you to know that the king of plasma TVs has...

    Sony KDL-55EX723 review

    By 29 November 2011

    How does Sony do it? This flagship TV in the brand’s EX Series is one of the most impressive we’re ever seen. The way the 55EX723 upscales all sources to fit its massive 55-inch panel is clever stuff; it cleans and polishes all kinds of web-based...

    LG 55LW980T review

    By 18 November 2011

    We loved the LG 47LX9900 for its design and 2D picture quality. We also really liked the LG Cinema 3D 47LW550T when it comes to watching 3D movies, so could a television that merges the two together be the best TV LG has ever made? We're about to find...

    LG LW980T Cinema 3D pictures and hands-on

    By 3 September 2011

    With such as aggressive stance against the active shutter 3D system, it came as no surprise when LG’s much-touted flagship flat screen TV was fitted with the brand’s Cinema 3D tech. The IFA announcement sees LG producing only plasma-flavoured active...

    Toshiba 55ZL2 eyes-on

    By 1 September 2011

    There's no doubt that Toshiba is fully committed to the glasses-free 3D revolution. Following the example set by its Qosmio spec-free laptop, the Japanese company used the IFA expo to announce the world’s first large-screen glasses-free 3D TV - the...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 4-85 review

    By 11 July 2011

    Remember when the government deemed plasmas TVs the “4x4s of the living room”? Bang & Olufsen’s latest is more a road-train, clocking-in at a mighty 85-inches in diameter - so four times bigger than a 42-inch TV. It’s high-def, it’s 3D, it’s...

    Sharp Aquos LC-46LE831E review

    By 8 July 2011

    After virtually creating the big screen LCD TV, Sharp’s latest Aquos is a huge step in the direction of picture perfection, but is it at the cost of usability? One of the few LED-backlit TVs around that stuffs lights all the way across the back of the...

    Toshiba F750 3D glasses-free laptop removes the glasses, we go hands-on

    By 5 July 2011

    Toshiba has announced the launch of the world’s first glasses-free 3D laptop, the Toshiba Qosmio F750 3D and Pocket-lint was on hand to check it out at the rather subdued UK launch. The new £1300 laptop that’s out in August will sport a 15.6-inch...

    Panasonic TX-P42VT30 review

    By 5 July 2011

    Ever since Pioneer pulled the plug on its highly-rated Kuro line of plasma screens, enthusiasts have been looking for a new hero brand to fill the void. Panasonic has always been the favoured candidate, not only because it has consistently enjoyed critical...

    LG Cinema 3D 47LW550T review

    By 21 June 2011

    We thought there was something brewing when Sky chose LG as its “official partner” for 3DTVs last year - after the Korean giant released a single “passive” 3D screen for the Sky 3D channel’s launch. And with the arrival of this, one of dozens...

    Panasonic TX-L37DT30 review

    By 9 June 2011

    During 2010 Panasonic quickly made a name for itself - and plasma technology in general - with a string of high-end 3DTVs that supplied stunning depth and comfortable viewing. That’s not what happened on the LCD/LED side of the market, where quality...

    Panasonic TX-50GT30 review

    By 26 April 2011

    Twelve months ago the ins and outs of 3DTVs were a mystery to us all as a plethora of high-priced LED TVs were thrown our way, but now we know the truth; if you want convincing 3D in your living room, choose a plasma. Panasonic, the only brand to offer...

    HTC EVO 3D hands-on

    By 22 March 2011

    HTC has gone 3D, following LG into the market with the Sprint HTC EVO 3D. But is it a gimmick or the next best thing? We’ve just grabbed a hands-on with the new phone at CTIA to check out what the fuss is all about. First and foremost this is a superfast,...

    Samsung UE55D8000 review

    By 15 March 2011

    With no immediate replacement for the extraordinarily over-engineered 9000 Series on the horizon, Samsung’s waif-thin Series 8 models have become the new LED flag wavers for the brand. At first glance the models look rather similar, but the new Series...

    Killzone 3 3D hands-on

    By 26 February 2011

    You may already have Killzone 3 for the PS3, but have you tried it yet in 3D? We fired up the new first person shooter on our 3D TV (an LG 47LX9900) to find out whether you should bother and if you haven’t already got a 3D TV whether you should rush...
