Samsung 55in OLED TV

RH Numbers

CES is dominated by TVs: if nothing else, every booth has one, and the big names in the business have dozens, racked high. This year, OLED technology made a big return to the show, with sets from Samsung and LG, both 55-inchers – a long way from the tiny, 15in screens we saw a few years back. LG's telly has a negligible 4mm bezel, but it was Samsung's offering that most impressed us, thanks to the buckets of tech built in: IPTV, voice and motion control, 3D. Can't deny, though, both produce gorgeous pictures.

Sony Crystal LED TV

RH Numbers

Samsung and LG may have picked OLED tech for their next-gen, post-LCD tellies, but Sony's latest thinking takes a more inorganic line. Enter the "Crystal LED Display", a 1080p set packed with more than six million "ultrafine" LEDs, three each of red, green and blue hue to create each of the panel's 2m-odd pixels. Visitors' eyeballs confirmed the picture it produces is stunning, but the big challenge for Sony is matching the price of its rivals' OLED offerings.
