If you're looking to buy a new TV, then a feature that should be high on your list of your considerations is connected or "smart TV".
A smart TV is a television that gives you access to a whole range of entertainment options via the internet. These include catch-up TV, video-on-demand, music streaming and web browsing. Of course, no "smart" device would be complete without downloadable apps.
While at present there are only two manufacturers with Smart TV branding — Samsung and LG — we quietly predict that next year every one of the "Big Four" will be using it.
Our pick of the current crop of smart TVs is LG for the highly intuitive, and also additive, Magic Motion remote. It enables you to use your remote like a mouse and makes navigating menus and web pages tremendously easy. We'll also give props to Samsung's D8000 plasma for the inclusion of the compact QWERTY remote, which simplifies text input in some, but not all, of the TV's apps.
Here is a list of the best smart TVs we've tested so far, and we'll be adding more in the near future.
