SMART AWARDS 2013 / DISPLAY

We Pick The Best Display Products For 2010

By The SmartHouse Team | Wednesday | 02/12/2009

This year, the display sector has made some significant strides, with LED back-lit LCD becoming more popular, and large-screen plasma panels delivering incredible image quality with lower power consumption and slim form factors. Smaller screen sizes are still selling well, and budget models have improved in features and quality over last year's offerings.

Best Full HD Plasma 60" & Over
Winner
Panasonic Viera TH-P65V10A
The V10 outshines it competitors when it comes to image quality, but it isn't that alone that makes it the best of the best. It can also be precisely calibrated using the ISF functions by a professional, and it is ultra thin with a sophisticated design and low power consumption.
 
Highly Recommended

Best Full HD Plasma 50" to 60"
Winner
LG 50PS30FD 
Even though this panel is a capable of producing excellent images, that isn't what has won it the top spot. What makes it lead the pack is its low price and range of features. It includes ISF expert calibration and 600Hz subfield drive, as well as high-fidelity invisible speakers.
 

Highly Recommended
Panasonic TH-P54Z1A

Best Full HD LCD TV Over 50"
Winner
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.



Highly Recommended

Best LED TV
Winner
Samsung UA46B8000
When it comes to LED TV, Samsung has led the way and shown the rest of the market how it is done right. The series 8 LED TV is the pinnacle of its range, offering more than just a display device but also media streaming and web-based features that make it an entertainment hub.

Best HD TV Under 40"
Winner
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.



Highly Recommended
Panasonic TH32X10A

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.

Highly Recommended
Toshiba 22DV615Y

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
