What makes a Best Buy TV?
Expert TV reviews you can trust
Models from the biggest TV brands on the market are tested in our labs - including LG, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung - and we've discovered that even the most trustworthy names occasionally drop the ball. Our tests use clips of moving trains to assess how well a TV handles movement, and we measure the sound quality of classical, pop and jazz music - as well as everyday voices and drama. We guarantee a Best Buy TV will give you great sound and picture quality at home, whatever's on.
Which? is independent - we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
