Excerpt: The unofficial award for ‘most intriguing/bewildering TV’ in this size sector undoubtedly goes to the LG 42PW450T . As it’s the least expensive screen we've seen at this size (and it’s yours for close to £400 if you do the legwork), we were primed to accept some holes in its specification, but the 42PW450T gives with one hand and takes away with the other in head-spinning fashion.
Pros: Effective 3D and HD-ready TV at a bargain price, great ergonomics
Cons: Some motion issues, miserly resolution, grating sound

Pros: Decent all-round images, First-rate Blu-ray playback, Appealing look, Attractive menu system, Excellent sound
Cons: 3D pictures lack punch, Standard def Freeview pics below par, Network-unfriendly, Active 3D glasses expensive
