Best TVs for gamers

These TVs from Sony, Panasonic, LG and Samsung have a 1080p resolution, high contrast and 'Game' modes for fast response

If you're a hardcore console gamer, you'll want a flat panel television that not only looks good, but has fast response times to ensure there's no lag between moving the controller and seeing the effect on-screen. We've put together a list of some of the best televisions from Sony, Panasonic, LG and Samsung you can buy if you are on the hunt for excellent image quality and a dedicated 'Game' mode.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-46HX700

Sony's BRAVIA KDL-46HX700 is the company's FIFA World Cup hero model, with a 200hz refresh rate for accurate reproduction of fast motion video. It doesn't have the backlight cloudiness that occasionally bugs Sony's edge-lit LED televisions, and decent colour reproduction adds to its repertoire. It may not have the high contrast ratio required to get the best out of difficult movie scenes, but for sports viewing we think it is a solid performer.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
