S21 Best TV awards 2013
By S21, 4 Dec 2013
We've reviewed a lot of TVs during 2013. Some of them blew us away; others were a bit of a let down. Here, we put our feet up on the sofa, nibble a mince pie or two, maybe even open a bottle of something, and pick our very favourite TVs of the year.
Today's best buy: Panasonic Viera TX-50DX700B from Tesco Direct (£849.00)
Best TVs of 2013
The Sony W653A series is at its most impressive in its 32 inch form, where the picture quality is head and shoulders above most competitors. Price-drops in the run-up to Christmas have made it very affordable. If you have more cash to spend, the ultimate 32 inch TV is the Samsung UE32F6800.
40 inches is a reasonable size for a family TV and £600 is excellent value for such a polished TV as this Series 6 model from Samsung. Good looks, outstanding Smart TV and excellent picture quality are the main reasons for picking this model. The Samsung UE40F7000 improves on these but will cost you quite a bit more.
42 inches is probably the sweet spot for a family TV and this Panasonic delivers a lot for close to £600. Nice styling, good picture quality (especially 3D) and good connectivity are all here. You might also want to check out the outstanding Panasonic TX-P42ST60B plasma TV.

Futuristic looks, excellent 2D & 3D picture quality, Triluminos colour, NFC display mirroring and strong audio performance make this a top TV. The Samsung UE46F8000 is another outstanding performer, but pricey!
50 inches is the size where plasma screens start to shine, and the GT60B offers nearly everything that the flagship VT65B model offers, but at a much more affordable price. Last year's Panasonic TX-P50ST50B is also a contender.
If you want the ultimate TV and price isn't a problem, then choose Samsung's Series 8 beauty. The Sony KDL-55W905A is virtually a match.
