Which? reveals new 32-inch LCD and LED TV resultsHDTVs between £300 and £600 put to the test

18 June 2010

Sony Bravia Z5500

Newly tested LCD and LED TVs from Sony, Samsung, LG and Bush are reasonably priced, but there are big differences in quality between the best and worst

Cheap Sony TVs

Included in Which?'s latest high definition TV lab test results are three LCD TVs from Sony's EX-series. We've rated three TVs for under £600, from the sub-£300 KDL-32EX301 to the £550 KDL-32EX503 featuring integrated Freeview HD tuner and USB input for watching media stored on a USB memory stick. 

The Which? test results show that the further up the range of Sony TVs you go, the better the picture quality you get.

But how do Sony's new offerings measure up to TVs from competitors such as Panasonic? Find out with the Which? TV buyers guide. 

Cheap LED TV

A 32 inch LED television for less than £400 has been unheard of up to now, but the Bush LED321K1 - which retails at around £380 - promises LED technology and all its advantages at a rock bottom price. 

In reality, Which? found the LED321K1's performance to be lacking. For more on what to look for when choosing a new LED TV, read the free Which? advice guide on LCD, Plasma and LED technology.

Michael Briggs, Which? TV expert, said, 'An LED TV for less than £400 may sound like a tempting proposition. 

'But as our latest tests show, when it comes to quality you often get what you pay for - it's worth investing a bit more for the best viewing experience.'
