Ten... 40-42in net connected HD TVs

Next gen tellies you’ll want to own

High performance access to file storage

Product Round-up If you’re looking to get the biggest bang for your thin-screen buck, then the 40-42in TV category is the sweet spot. It’s here that the most competitive price points jostle with bleeding edge features.

Almost to a man, our group combines high-performance Freeview HD 1080p screens plus some level of Internet connectivity. These TVs will also stream media across your home network, although, as I discovered, file compatibility can be all over the shop. Some screens even offer 3D compatibility, be it Active Shutter or Passive 3D.

Such feature richness was unheard of just a few years ago; it’s indicative of just how fast the TV market is evolving. When it comes to buying a new TV, we’ve never had so much choice.
