Back to the future Panasonic's flagship 2D plasma is a 21st century marvel, says Martin Pipe

I recently stumbled across a 30-year-old article from a trade magazine, which predicted that the domestic TV would become a ‘home-entertainment’ hub. Looking at TVs like Panasonic’s TX-P50V20B, you have to admit they were right.

Tuner three-pack Martin Pipe thinks light-emitting diodes give Panasonic the edge, but there are plenty more features to its first LED model

Panasonic is currently the king of plasma TV. So much so, that its LCD screens often get overlooked. Now, though, it’s joined the LED market, with a range of TVs from 19-42in. This set, the TX-L42D25B, is the biggest in its arsenal. Is it good enough to challenge the LED lineups of Samsung, Sony et al?

So nearly an LG legend John Archer finds a lot to like about this 50in plasma TV – and a couple of flaws, too

Proof of just how seriously LG is still taking plasma is abundantly clear in the brand’s latest flagship TV, the 50PK990. Thanks to its slim frame, single-layer finish and novel colour scheme, which subtly infuses a touch of blue into the stand and bezel, it certainly cuts a dash.

3D for everyone John Archer is surprised to see a 3DTV for only £1,500, and wonders if there’s a catch

This 46in TV with full HD and frame sequential 3D playback costs just £1,500, not in excess of £2K like every other active 3D TV. In other words, it promises to be the set that brings 3D to the masses. Since it uses a standard CCFL backlight, it’s loads fatter than the wafer-thin delights of Samsung’s edge LED models. But it’s still fairly stylish for all that.

In 2017, Sony reimagined the humble telly with its A1 OLED debut, marrying a chic lean-back design to a state-of-the-art speaker implementation. With the AF8 it’s reined in the bravado in favour of a more conventional form factor. Does it still impress?

If you're already getting bored of your 4K TV, Samsung's 8K-resolution Q900R series is certain to tempt. But does the next-generation performance of this 85in flagship TV justify the price tag?
