Key features:

  • 50-inch LCD TV with edge LED lighting
  • Native Full HD resolution
  • My Home Screen smart system
Despite not being a headline-grabber, the Panasonic TX-50CS520 is the sort of TV that’ll appeal to many UK households. It’s attractive in a simple way, with a slim frame and a barely-there stand, and it runs the same my Home Screen smart system as last year’s Panasonic models. The Techwood 50AO1SB is a slightly cheaper alternative, but isn’t widely available.

The flat, 50-inch LCD display has a Full HD resolution. Pictures are excellent for such an affordable TV, with impressive colour handling and deep blacks. However, there’s no 3D on offer. The speakers are pretty loud and deliver a large, detailed soundstage, while voices remain consistently clear.

At time of review the Panasonic TX-50CS520 was available for £580.

No 'best budget screen over 50"' category?

Sadly the TX-50CX802 is not sold in many European countries. What would the second best option be?

Maybe comparing 24" TV with 50"+ is not really very fair?
