With TVs as with so many things in life, spending a little more money can definitely be worthwhile. So here we’d like to highlight an option you might want to consider if you can rustle up a hundred pounds or so more.

Panasonic's TX-P42G20B adds a Freesat HD tuner to the Freeview HD one in the P42S20 mentioned in the main part of this feature. But even more importantly, it dramatically improves picture quality, especially when it comes to contrast and showing rich colours, thanks to its introduction of Panasonic’s latest NeoPDP screen technology.

Finally, if you’re struggling to stretch to our £500 lower limit, you might want to check out Toshiba’s 37RV635DB. This 37in TV can now be found for as little as £409, yet it can produce sharp, colourful and natural pictures, only let down by some average contrast and a slight lack of brightness. And if England win the World Cup on the 11th of July you could claim back the purchase price from Toshiba.
