Small-screen thrillers for bar­gain prices

Once (and still, for some of us) the de­fault TV size, 32in sets are be­com­ing more com­mon as sec­ond-room screens

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Contents -

In the Novem­ber 2005 is­sue of What Hi-fi? we made a big fuss about how, for the first time, all the TVS in our ‘Su­pertest’ had an HD Ready res­o­lu­tion. Back then, a lit­tle more than a decade ago, this was a huge step in TV tech. We had fi­nally be­gun to es­cape from the clutches of ‘stan­dard’ res­o­lu­tion. The price for those eight ground­break­ing 32in TVS ranged from £1200 to £2000. To­day, a hum­ble 32in screen with HD Ready res­o­lu­tion will cost you a mere £300 – and £1500 now gets you a 55in Ul­tra HD 4K screen. How times have changed.

Mod­ern con­ve­niences

But as LG, Pana­sonic and Sony will show you over the next few pages, a small screen and a decade-old res­o­lu­tion doesn’t mean that their TVS can’t be com­pet­i­tive and en­joy­able, with plenty of mod­ern con­ve­niences added to the mix. If you’re look­ing for a de­cent small-screen TV on a bud­get, you’ve come to the right place.
