There's never been a better time to buy a TV, thanks to cut-price big screens and cheap-as-chips small sets - we'll keep you up-to-date with the best TV bargains to be found

Cheap TV deals can be a double-edged sword. Many of the supermarket TVs you'll see for hard-to-resist, bargain prices, will end-up costing you more... when you realise you should have shelled out for something a little better. But there are genuine deals to be found in the budget TV market, not least with Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the Christmas sales approaching.

We're here to steer you in the right direction, rounding-up the best budget TVs on sale, whether you want to spend under £300 on a small TV for the bedroom or under £500 on a budget 42in TV for the main room. And it's not just supermarket brands, with the likes of LG, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony all offering cut-price TV ranges. Without further ado...

Polaroid 3-32-LED-14

Five stars

Tested at £200

Who? What? How much? Polaroid may be better known for cameras, but the brand has been punting decent cheap TVs for some time, too. This 32in TV offers iPlayer and Netflix, HDMI and USB connections, a Freeview HD tuner and a decent picture.

Neither the design nor the sound quality are much to write home about but for £200, we find it hard to argue.

Four stars

Apart from its shortage of subtlety and a few gripes with sound (it’s a bit on the shrill side), this Philips has a lot going for it - not least price.
