A great TV can make all the difference to your enjoyment of the home entertainment experience. We test and review the latest TVs, ranging in price from $399 to $15,999 (yes, you read that right), to help you find the right choice for your home and your budget.
Our buying guide describes the features you might want, and how we test explains our rigour.
Through our independent and rigorous testing in the CHOICE labs, we reveal which TVs:

a/b/g/n/ac refers to variations of the the 802.11 standard for Wi-Fi networking.
a, b and g are older versions and hardly used these days (but are referred to in some newer networking products such as wireless routers for backwards compatibility).
n is the most common Wi-Fi standard (and it incorporates the older b and g standards).
All the models showing with Wi-Fi support in this test support the n standard.
ac is the latest and fastest version of Wi-Fi and also a handy feature as it can operate on the less congested 5GHz band.
If the TV is well made, the plasma, LCD or OLED credentials will make very little difference to the quality of the image.
In our latest test, the screens are either LCD or LCD IPS.
LCD: An LCD (liquid-crystal display) screen needs a light source behind it, which will either be CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) or LED (light-emitting diode) technology.
CCFL technology still exists but it's older and is being replaced by LEDs. These cost more at the outset, but are cheaper to run because the lights have a relatively lower power usage.
LCD IPS: In Plane Switching (IPS) is a technology introduced to help improve the viewing angle of LCD screens.
