Samsung LA52A850 
When it comes to LCD, Samsung has become the clear leader. Its approach to television isn't just to provide excellent image quality but also connectivity to the home network, in-built content and IP TV features as well. The fact that the price is reasonable is an added bonus.

Best Full HD LCD TV Under 50"
Winner
Loewe Art 47 SL
Loewe is all about style and image quality, but its latest Art series has the added bonus of an integrated PVR as well.  The price of a Loewe TV places very high as Loewe is a boutique brand—but the PVR as well as image and design quality has earned it top honours.

Samsung LA32B650
Good things can indeed come in small packages. Despite its diminutive size, this unit has high-end features like DLNA media streaming and 100Hz and has managed to keep its price very low. It is an excellent option for a second TV or for smaller rooms.

Best Budget TV
Winner
Hisense V88 (47")
For a 47-inch model, you would expect a much higher price tag than you will see on this Hisense. It doesn't quite compare with some of the other units on the market when it comes to image quality and features, but if you want to get the biggest bang for your buck, this is the way to go.
