Why not brighten up your home with a new LCD TV and maximise your viewing pleasure? Below read about five highly recommended LCD TVs offering great value for money.
LCD TVs are a good choice because they produce superb picture quality, screen displays are bright and they tend to be a high resolution product. Some good things to look out for when buying an LCD are:
Contrast ratio - Refers to the brightest and darkest light values a display can produce at the same time. The higher the contrast ratio the better.
Aspect ratio - Screen width to screen height. Most flatscreens have wide-screen: 16:9 which is what you should aim for.
Resolution - Pixel columns x pixel rows, eg 1280 by 720. Generally speaking, a display is considered high definition if it is wide screen and has a total pixel count approaching 1 million. So 1280 x 720 or otherwise are good examples of HD displays.
Inputs - Check the number and type of inputs for your link up needs.
Other features - Other things to consider are size; how it is installed; type of power consumption; and the number of accessories included. Also, is it HD ready? A quality LCD should be able to connect to an HDTV video source.
Review Centre members say the REGZA AV61 series is the ideal digital and HD Ready LCD TV for the budget-conscious home.

Review Centre members all commented on the glossy design and clearer pictures the KDL40W5500 produced. All BRAVIA televisions are HD Ready as a minimum, and our users particularly found useful the 4 HDMI connections, and integrated digital tuner, so there is no need for a set-top box to view Freeview TV. Another nifty feature is the KDL40W5500U's Sync technology, meaning it takes just one button to turn on your entire Sony home entertainment system!
