These ex­cuses, how they served me so well

All you need is a work­able ex­cuse. Buy­ing a new tele­vi­sion should only ever be a plea­sure, but more of­ten than not we need to ra­tio­nalise the out­lay – if only to our­selves. This sum­mer presents the per­fect jus­ti­fi­ca­tion. Not only are there weeks and weeks of lovely high-def­i­ni­tion sport just around the cor­ner, but the cur­rent state of the TV art is pro­foundly im­pres­sive. Wit­ness this is­sue’s five brand-new TVS, one from each of the Big Five TV brands (p40) – at least one of them has a de­cent shot at the ti­tle ‘Best TV We’ve Ever Seen’. And, once you’ve talked your­self into the out­lay, we’ve de-jar­goned the jar­gon and ex­plained how to get the very best from your new TV. So while you might need an ex­cuse to get your credit-card out, you’ve no ex­cuse for not get­ting your money’s-worth.
