We have analysed 5,373 expert reviews and 69,014 user reviews for TVs written online and used these reviews to calculate the average rating for each brand of television. The top three TV brands are Logik, Goodmans and Samsung. Logik has an average rating of 92%, Goodmans has an average rating of 92% and Samsung has an average rating of 91%.

Biggest Television Retailers

The biggest TV retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 606 current TV offers from eBay. The second biggest TV retailer is Amazon UK with 261 offers. That means eBay is more than twice as big as Amazon UK when it comes to televisions. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 234 current offers.

When Are Most New TVs Released?

We couldn't see any evident pattern in the release dates for new televisions over the last 3 years. September was the biggest month last year for new TVs, with 435 new TVs released that month. The biggest month in 2015 for new TV releases was April, with 373 new TVs released that month. In March 2014 319 new TVs were released making it the biggest month that year for new TV releases.

How Fast Do TV Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, televisions drop in price by 11% on average. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £116 on a typical £1,092 new television by waiting 6 months before buying.

Display Diagonals

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

The display diagonals of TVs range from 2" to 110". The display diagonals of most TVs range from 46" to 52". The LG98UB980, which sells for £24,999.99, has the largest display diagonal and is a 98" television. The LG98UB980, which is priced at £165.98, has the smallest display diagonal and is a 13.3" TV.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

HD Types

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

We found 2,408 TVs that are Full HD TVs, which makes Full HD the most frequently found HD type amongst new TVs. We found 1,605 TVs that are 4K televisions, making 4K the second most popular HD type amongst new TVs.

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

3D

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

OLED Technologies

OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast then LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Energy Efficiency of TVs

The Energy Efficiency Class of a TV shows how well it uses energy, and how much is unnecessarily wasted. Products are ranked from G to A++ in terms of how little energy they use compared to the norm.

We found 1,385 televisions that have an energy efficiency rating of A+, which makes this the most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new televisions. A is the second most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new TVs. We found 1,316 TVs that have an energy efficiency rating of A.

A TV with a better energy efficiency rating will consume less energy whenever they are used, saving you money and making them better for the environment.

Biggest Television Retailers

The biggest TV retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 606 current TV offers from eBay. The second biggest TV retailer is Amazon UK with 261 offers. That means eBay is more than twice as big as Amazon UK when it comes to TVs. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 234 current offers.
