Samsung PS64D8000

RH Editor's Choice

With its shiny silver bezel and 37.1mm deep panel, this 64in plasma is as trendy as it is huge. Despite its size, pictures are startlingly sharp and bright, with Full HD images from Blu-ray looking particularly spectacular.

The set’s Active Shutter 3D performance also gets a thumbs up. This Samsung’s stereoscopic images are low on double-imaging and entertainingly immersive.

The PS64D8000 offers streaming internet video aplenty, courtesy of Samsung’s Smart TV portal, home of BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Vimeo and others, while media playback from USB supports all key video formats. If you want to go big without breaking the bank, this beast is a solid bet.

Sharp Aquos LC-60LE636E


RH Numbers

It may not be the first company that springs to mind when it comes to titanic TVs, but Sharp has been a tireless innovator in the world of LCD, and it clearly wants a slice of the big-screen action. Interestingly, while this liquid crystal leviathan hails from Sharp’s bleeding edge panel facility at Sakai city Japan, it doesn’t feature the brand’s more fanciful quad pixel Quattron technology. This Aquos is not 3D capable either.

Both these tech omissions help keep the price under control which is no bad thing. Indeed, although the set is listed at £2,599 on Sharp's website, canny shoppers should be able to save a grand on that. So if all you want is a kick-ass mega screen for movies and games, then look no further. Despite its size, the panel is A+ rated, with average power consumption of just 101W. Some may say Sharp has its priorities in exactly the right order.
