Best LCD TVs

The top non-LED LCD TVs we've tested from Kogan, Sony, Hisense, Soniq and Toshiba

If you're buying a television on a budget, chances are you won't be able to afford an LED-backlit LCD or plasma panel. Regular LCD televisions can still deliver great picture quality and have useful inbuilt features, at a fraction of the price of newer technologies. Here's a list of our favourite LCD televisions from brands like Kogan, Sony, Hisense, Soniq and Toshiba.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40EX700

We really like the inclusion of BRAVIA Internet Video in a low-to-mid range model like Sony's BRAVIA KDL-40EX700. It's offers 100Hz motion smoothing and a few nifty usability features, and it is only slightly let down by an inability to get the most out of difficult high-contrast viewing material.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
