    Hands-on: Panasonic AX802 Freetime TV

    By 13 March 2014

    There's no going back now, Panasonic has stopped production of its plasma TV line. Now, the firm is looking to LCD with LED backlights for its TV range, but the good news is the company is still innovating, and to that end it has introduced the first...

    LG 55LM960V LED-backlit LCD TV review

    By 11 June 2012

    LG’s top-tier LCD TV, the extra large 55-inch version of the LM960V series in this case, has a dual-core processor and passive 3D system to add to its headline Nano LED-backlight technology. But can it cut the mustard when considering the likes of Sony’s...

    Hannspree SE40LMNB review

    By 26 January 2012

    Can a telly that lacks Freeview HD, 3D and any semblance of a 'smart' platform really be considered suitable for modern living? That depends on what you're after, but we're sure Hannspree's latest bargain basement edge LED-backlit LCD TV has enough to...

    Sony KDL-40HX723 review

    By 14 November 2011

    Sony TVs are a bit like Star Trek movies. They alternate between good and woeful for no apparent reason. But while the decent Trek flicks are relatively easy to predict - stick with the even-numbered outings and you won’t go far wrong - avoiding the...

    Samsung UE32D5000 review

    By 19 August 2011

    We’ve really only one niggle about Samsung’s latest value-busting effort. The very latest features are missing from this Series 5 set; 3D, Smart TV and Samsung’s Apps have all been slashed to get this super-slim 32-inch LED-backlit LCD TV down to...

    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...

    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...

    Toshiba Regza 22DL833 review

    By 13 June 2011

    Toshiba has long offered “combi” TVs, and in the 22DL833, Tosh manage to include a slot-loading DVD drive without bulking the set up too much. Sure, it won’t compete with the slick design of the latest high-end notebook, but the drive on the rear...

    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...

    Toshiba 32HL833B review

    By 7 June 2011

    Typical Toshiba. For years this enormous Japanese company has been taunting us with tales of its “Cell” or “Cevo” TV, with its exceptional high-end features and up to 10 TV tuners, then it hit us at January‘s CES with giant glasses-free 3DTV...

    Sony Bravia KDL-40NX713 review

    By 22 February 2011

    3D ready rather than 3D-equipped, this step-up set from Sony is nicely positioned for anyone after a top draw, future-proof flatscreen - and it comes complete with Freeview HD tuner. Part of Sony’s Network range - we’re not sure why when most of its...

    Sharp LC-32LE210E review

    By 15 February 2011

    Big in microwaves and calculators, few go shopping specifically for a Sharp TV, but they often end-up with one; you’ll find panels from the planet’s biggest LCD manufacturer inside the TVs of a lot of other, bigger brands. So how does the original...

    Kogan FHDLED26 review

    By 9 February 2011

    While most brands of television hail from the Asia-Pacific region, Australia is not a country known for supplying budget LCD TVs, but that’s exactly what Kogan is promising. This 26-inch telly with LED goodness is part of a large range of TVs that is...

    Philips 58PFL9955H Cinema 21:9 Platinum review

    By 27 January 2011

    Philips doesn't do things by halves. Designed primarily to rid Blu-ray movie transfers of those pesky black bars top and bottom, this uniquely (for now – LG demoed a very similar product behind closed doors at the recent CES) shaped TV increases the...

    Samsung UE32C6000 review

    By 25 January 2011

    This LED from Samsung falls into the all-new TV category of “affordable high-end”, and is likely to appeal to anyone after the latest and greatest slimscreen tech, but who can’t actually afford most incarnations. It is this everyman approach that...
