Pana­sonic EZ952

World-beat­ing colour fi­delity is the name of the EZ952’s game. In fact, this is one of the best sets for re­pro­duc­ing lush colours and putting in a stel­lar near-black per­for­mance. Pana­sonic’s EZ952 UHD TV has a wide-rang­ing smart TV plat­form, too, mean­ing you can watch any­thing while en­joy­ing sump­tu­ous pic­ture qual­ity.

LG W7

A se­ri­ous con­tender at this year’s T3 Awards, the 4K HDR10 LG W7 comes with a hefty price tag but puts in a hefty per­for­mance to com­pen­sate. LG’s ‘wall­pa­per’ TV boasts a semi-flex­i­ble 2.75mmthin screen and pro­duces cinema-qual­ity sur­round sound thanks to a Dolby At­mos-ca­pa­ble ex­ter­nal speaker sys­tem.

Sam­sung Q7

Is QLED re­ally a match for OLED? Sam­sung reck­ons so, putting its money on the at­trac­tive Q7, a 4K Ul­tra HDR QLED telly with big as­pi­ra­tions. De­signed with a Q pro­cess­ing en­gine and us­ing HDR 1500 tech, the Q7 de­liv­ers thrillingly punchy, de­tailed images that re­ally caught our eye when test­ing TVs this year.

Philips Am­bi­light 901F

When the Am­bi­light 901F was re­leased, Philips promised that it would pro­duce the most life­like image yet. We agree, so we nom­i­nated it. The three-sided Am­bi­light 901F with built-in sound­bar fea­tures Philips’s widest colour spec­trum, with eight mil­lion pix­els pro­duc­ing life­like colours against a pure black back­ground.

Loewe Bild 7

It’s the de­signer TV with the de­signer price tag, but the Loewe Bild 7 HDR TV is also home to fancy-pants Vanta Vi­sion, which utilises cut­ting-edge OLED tech and pic­ture-pro­cess­ing soft­ware to con­jure the deep­est blacks, mak­ing con­trast­ing colours pop like crazy. Props to the Bild 7’s im­mac­u­late wire­less sound, too.
