Samsung PS51E490

  • Summary: Samsung has obviously made some compromises to keep the price of this TV so low. It lacks Full HD resolution and only has two HDMI inputs. Nevertheless, for such a cut-price model its colour and contrast performance is strong and it's surprisingly capable for 3D viewing.
  • Cons: Not Full HD; No smart TV features; Only two HDMI ports.

  • Conclusion: Samsung might like crowing about its high-end LED TVs, but the Samsung PS51E490 proves the brand still knows its way around the budget end of the market too. Its picture and sound performance are both much better than you've any right to expect from a 51-inch TV that costs less than £800/US$800, and it even gives you a Freeview HD tuner, multimedia playback from USB or networked PC, and active 3D, including two pairs of glasses.
