Panasonic TX-P42ST60

Apart from its design and graphic interface, the Panasonic ST60 doesn't really improve on 2012's ST50. Still, it's a five-star TV and an excellent choice for home-cinema set-ups. The ST60 is also available in 50" (TX-P50ST60), 55" (TX-P55ST60) and 65" (TX-P65ST60) sizes.

Best of the rest

Excellent LCD

Samsung UE46F6650

Samsung UE46F6650
The mid-range Samsung F6650 has features you'd usually only find on a high-end TV. The only thing conceivably missing is motion control. Samsung has great connected services that are a notch above the competition. The F6650 has a balanced image, high contrast and good 3D. We would have given it five stars if it weren't for the high risk of clouding.

Good Value 3D TV

Samsung UE46F6400

Samsung UE46F6400
The Samsung UE46F6400 has surprisingly good picture quality, better than the more expensive Samsung F8000. Both have equally good colours, but here the contrast is doubled, making for darker black. The only thing really holding this TV down is its narrow viewing angles.

Sony KDL-40R473

Sony KDL-40R473
Sony's R473 budget TV offers a great image with high contrast, faithful colours and near-perfect responsiveness at a low price, but in terms of extra features it's no man's land. Choice is yours.
