Editor's choice

Panasonic Viera TX-P50ST60 award

Panasonic Viera TX-P50ST60

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 42" (TX-P42ST60), 55" (TX-P55ST60) and 65" (TX-P65ST60) sizes.

Best of the rest

Excellent Image Quality

LG 55EA980W award

LG 55EA980W
With a true perfect black, infinite contrast, wide viewing angles, no trace of clouding, no ghosting and low power use, the first OLED TV to pass through our test lab does so with flying colours. LG's 55EA980W certainly delivers on its promises! Image quality is quite simply incredible.

Sony Bravia X9 (KD-55X9005A) award

Sony Bravia X9 (KD-55X9005A)
The Sony Bravia KD-55X9005A is hands-down the best TV we've ever reviewed, with or without the Ultra HD resolution. It combines sky-high contrast with perfectly faithful colours, virtually impeccable 3D rendering and amazing sound quality. Now all you have to do is wait until some 4K source material surfaces... and the bank agrees to give you a loan..

Good Value Viewing

Samsung UE55F6400

Samsung UE55F6400
The Samsung UE55F6400 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.
