Sony pledges 'affordable' 3D TV experience

Sony today pledged to make viewing this summer's World Cup in 3D "more affordable", momentarily forgetting that - so far - no one is broadcasting the matches in more than two dimensions here.

Philips 40PFL9704 40in LED backlit TV

Review LED backlighting is all the rage at the moment; it can dramatically improve the contrast ratio of LCD panels, helping them towards the deep blacks seen on plasma displays. But many of the sets available at the moment, including the LG we recently reviewed, use LEDs that aren’t individually addressable – so it’s still really all …

Samsung UE40B7000 40in LCD TV

Review Flatscreen TVs with LED backlighting offer more vivid colours, darker blacks and greater contrast than regular LCD screens. And there’s a slimness dividend, too, as edge-mounted LED backlights take up less space than conventional LCD bulbs. A case in point is Samsung’s UE40B7000, a 40in 1080p HDTV that’s only 30mm deep. …

Philips Cinema 21:9 56in LCD TV

Review Think of a widescreen TV. The widest one you’ve seen, you know, one with big, garish speakers stuck on the side. Well, whatever it is, it’ll be nowhere near as wide as this new, premium-priced LCD TV from Philips. Philips 21:9 56PFL9954H Philips' Cinema 21:9 56PFL9954H Current widescreens have an aspect ratio of 16:9, so …

Toshiba Regza DV556DB

Review The market for TVs with integrated DVD players has never quite reached its potential. Dogged by some indifferent products, a very large installed base of standalone DVD players already out there and manufacturers’ desire to sell us two products instead of one, TV/DVD combos have struggled to make a real impact. Toshiba Regza …

Toshiba touts 'deep lagoon' top-end telly design

CES Toshiba today tried to life its Regza HD TV line to the top of the telly totem pole, pitching a new design and a revamped picture engine.

Philips Cineos 42PFL9603D Ambilight LCD TV

Review Philips' Ambilight feature at first seems bizarre: back-mounted lights that change hue as the dominant screen colour does. However, it's hard to switch off once you’ve used it. So what do we make of Philips' new, uncompromisingly-designed LCD model that has hidden speakers, the latest image processing technology and Ambilight …

TV makers go ape for 100Hz LCDs

Almost every TV maker exhibiting at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin last week used the event to launch LCD TVs capable of a picture refresh rate of 100 images a second.

Aussies fume over 'frozen' LG digital TVs

Pity poor Australian owners of certain LG LCD and plasma tellies - their big flat screens have begun freezing up during certain digital broadcasts from TV station the Nine Network.
