LCD technology is dominating the TV market, especially since the advent of high-definition. The flat dimensions free up more space allowing us larger screen sizes and 32in has become the most popular.

Consequently, competition is fierce and there are plenty of models to choose from, all with similar specifications including integrated digital tuners, high-definition compatibility with digital connectivity and advanced processing systems. We've selected four of the finest new models to help grease your decision-making gears.

Panasonic TH-32LXD600

Sharp LC-32GD8

Sony KDL-32V2000

Toshiba 32WLT68

Final verdict
Each of these screens is impressive in its own right. But, our ratings are slanted towards performance and Sony's KDL-32V2000 just edges it with all-round image quality that will astound you. It's only Sony's second generation LCD but the Bravia Engine technology is setting new standards already - although it is pricey.
Panasonic's TX-32LXD600 comes close to class leading performance and it's only its occasional instability that lets it down. However, enhanced connectivity and convergent options will appeal to feature-minded buyers.

High-definition users will be attracted to Toshiba's affordable 32WLT68 with its multiple HDMI inputs, while if your budget is limited then Sharp's LC-32GD8 is great value for an entry-level model even if you have to suffer a few compromises.
