If you’re buying a new HDTV, price will factor into your decision at some point … unless your address is in Beverly Hills, 90210! There is a huge range of factors that goes into pricing televisions; when it comes to the all important final number, bigger doesn’t mean you’re getting something better.

PALSONIC LCD 15INCH/38CM (TFTV384HD) , $349
What a bargain for an LCD television! You wouldn’t be able to buy a digital set top box and a decent cathode ray television separately at this price – in that respect this television is great value for money. Buy an extended warranty (currently around 2 years for $119), and you don’t have to worry about brand and reliability issues, and can simply enjoy the extremely low price. Contrast ratio is not exceptional, at 400:1, but still good viewing quality in correct conditions.

Sony is one of the most respected electronics brands, and they are giving away a free PS2 with purchase of one of their 100cm LCD televisions. There is a bonus 3 year warranty with this model also. It is heavy and will chew the power, but has a host of awesome technology, including Bravia sync, USB and Ethernet connections, as well as Motinflow, LiveCOlour and Theatre Mode.
SAMSUNG LED TV 40? (UA40B6000)BONUS LCD PROMO – $2575
