01.And the winner is...
CHOICE has tested over 70 TVs over the last 12 months and used the results to help determine the Best Television Brand for our 2011 CHOICE Awards.
However, this award is based on other factors including:
- Average score of all TVs we tested for each brand.
- Percentage of models that made our What to Buy list.
- Each brand’s appliance reliability score based on a survey carried out among members.
The strongest performers in TVs across all screen sizes and price points are Panasonic, Sony and Samsung. All three brands consistently appeared at the top of the table for overall performance in the labs and satisfaction among CHOICE members.
In 2010, the Samsung has been the standout, releasing a series of quality models catering for the buyer wanting a small TV in the study, right up to 150cm-plus panels providing the full home cinema experience.
Samsung has not been making TVs for as long as established Japanese manufacturers Sony and Panasonic, but the South Korean brand’s range of TVs have performed well and been regulars in our What to Buy lists.
