Sony KD-84X9005 84in 4K LED TV

4K-ing hell! Will your shiny new Ultra HD TV actually display HD telly?

Feature With just about every TV maker showing off 4K sets at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this month, and companies like Netflix promising to have content available in the format, it’s tempting to think that if you’re buying a new TV, 4K may be worth a look. Or, at least, worth hanging on for until it’s more sensibly …

Philips 46PFL9706T 3D Smart LED TV

Philips 46PFL9706T 46in 3D smart TV

Review Philips TVs have long been synonymous with technical ingenuity. From an evangelical support of HD Mac and PAL Plus, through to the launch of 21:9, the brand has never shied away from pushing the televisual envelope. At least in the short term, that tradition looks set to continue under the stewardship of its new owner, TP Vision …

LG 47LM670T 3D Smart TV

LG 47LM670T 47in passive 3D smart TV

Review If design is the most potent weapon in a TV manufacturer’s armoury right now, LG is wielding a pretty big shooter with its new Cinema Screen line. Offering corner to corner glass, a 10.5mm bezel and what the brand calls a ‘floating metal ribbon stand,’ these 2012 flatties are genuine head-turners. LG 47LM670T 3D Smart TV …

Sony Bravia KDL-55HX85 television

Sony KDL-55HX853 55in 3D LED TV

Review The 55inch KDL-HX853 is currently the highest ranked of Sony’s 2012 TVs. It heads up a new Spartan range from the brand intended to rebuild its TV fortunes. Interestingly, it doesn’t come laden with features seemingly pulled at random from a brainstorming session down the local Karaoke; which means it’s not competing directly …

Panasonic PT-AT5000E LCD projector

Not only was it the first brand to introduce a native 16:9 widescreen model, it led the way with Full HD too.

Toshiba 40RL858 LED Smart TV

Toshiba Regza 40RL858 40in LED TV

Review Toshiba is a bit of a wild card when it comes to TVs. While some of its screens are genuinely exciting, others are merely bargain bin fillers. Buying a cheaper Tosh is a classic case of caveat emptor. Toshiba 40RL858 LED Smart TV Media savvy: Toshiba's Regza 40RL858 But while this 40in slimline LED LCD sits at the …

Sony SVR-HDT1000 Freeview+HD DVR

Sony SVR-HDT1000 Freeview+ HD DVR

Review IPTV Week logo At first glance, the Sony SVR-HDT1000 may appear rather unprepossessing. It’s a Freeview HD digital recorder which bucks the trend for ubiquitous Smart-ness and has no integrated Blu-ray player or fancy multi-platform functionality. It does, however, make a virtue of simplicity. Those looking for a no-nonsense …

Iomega TV With Boxee and Network Storage

Iomega TV with Boxee

Review I’ve reviewed various models in Iomega’s ScreenPlay range in the past and, to be honest, haven’t been wildly impressed by any of them. Weaknesses such as the inability to list album tracks in the correct order suggested that Iomega’s designers hadn’t exactly thought things through properly. Iomega TV With Boxee and Network …

Philips Cinema 21:9 Gold Ambilight TV

Philips Cinema 21:9 Gold 50in ultra widescreen TV

Review CES 2012 Week You’ve got to hand it to the guys at Philips – they’re plucky. They introduce Ambilight, the strange but effective backlighting effect which plays coloured lights on the wall behind your telly for a more relaxing, more immersive experience. Then they create a TV that’s super-wide, perfect for film aficionados. …

Logik LE423ED11 42in passive 3D TV

Dixons Logik LE423ED11 42in passive 3D TV

Review Now that the big name TV makers have made 3D a mainstream commodity, traditionally cheaper own-brand vendors are moving in for a slice of the pie. But does it make sense to nab a cut-price stereoscopic TV? Not on the evidence of this 42-incher, released under the Logik marque and distributed exclusively through Dixons, Currys …

Samsung PS64D8000 64in plasma 3D TV

Samsung PS64D8000 64in plasma 3D TV

Review With Samsung’s domination of the LED TV market all but complete (bwahahaha!) it’s perhaps easy to forget the brand is a major purveyor of plasma screens too. Its current largest is the 64in D8000, which with stand weighs in at over 38kg and dominates all but the largest of living rooms. Samsung PS64D8000 64in plasma 3D TV …

Review In the Twilight Zone between Blu-ray players and DVRs you’ll find Panasonic’s DMR-PWT500 that boasts a combination disc spinner and digital TV timeshifter. Space-saving convenience is main USP of this hybrid, so if you want one box that can do it all, it’s certainly worth an audition. Panasonic DMR-PWT500 3D Blu-ray player and …

Sony KDL-40HX723 3D LED backlit LCD TV

Sony KDL-40HX723 40in LED 3D TV

Review The KDL-40HX723 is a feature-heavy 40in Freeview HD TV from the posh end of Sony’s 2011 catalogue. While it sells for a tad more than a looky-likey from the brand’s bread and butter EX range, the premium is worth paying if you want to see what Sony’s picture boffins are really capable of. Sony KDL-40HX723 3D LED backlit LCD TV …

Feature rich and re-engineered in 1080p hi-def with 7.1 lossless audio, this high resolution three disc set delivers T-Rific quality and hours of extras to tempt collectors and film fans to …

Ten... small screen HD TVs

Product Round-up Small screen TVs are riding a wave of austerity-driven popularity. The good news is downsizing isn’t half as embarrassing as it used to be. Ultra-thin LED panels, integrated USB media readers and even streaming IPTV services are there to be had if you know where to look.

Sony BDP-SX1 portable Blu-ray player

Review Just as DVD players inevitably shrank to become portable, so have the Blu-ray successors. Whether this actually makes difference to you depends on how many Blu-ray discs you have and how much you might want to watch them away from home. Sony BDP-SX1 portable Blu-ray player Worth the disc? Sony's BDP-SX1 The BDP-SX1 is not …

Ten Freeview HD recorders

Ten... Freeview HD recorders

Product Round-up The UK’s ongoing digital switchover means that Freeview HD has probably now rolled out to a transmitter near you. If you’re using old digital TVs or set-top boxes, you won’t get the four – soon to be five – high-def channels through your aerial, alongside the standard line-up. One of the best ways to upgrade is with a new …

Sony BDP-S380 Blu-ray player

Sony BDP-S380 Blu-ray player with IPTV

Review Sony’s BDP-S380 Blu-ray bantamweight packs quite a punch. A mere 36mm tall, it barely looks big enough to swallow discs, but this plasticky pugilist can hold its own against full-size separates and is well stocked with features. Sony BDP-S380 Blu-ray player Budget offering: Sony BDP-S380 The BDP-S380 is IPTV enabled, …
