Philips Essence TV
We first saw this super-slim 42in TV from Philips at the IFA Show in August, and it's now available in the UK for £1999

Philips' super-slim Essence 42in LCD TV, which we first saw at the IFA Show in Berlin this August, has just gone on sale in the UK for £1999.

It's just 3.8cm deep and weighs a mere 16Kg, so is ideal for wall mounting. The screen is Full HD, 1080p resolution and uses Philips' latest Perfect Pixel HD engine.

The TV has a separate connectivity hub, which performs all the image processing and can be housed up to four metres from the screen. A single cable connects the hub to the screen.

A "smart levelling" bracket is supplied with the TV which is designed to make it easy to hang on the wall, even if the wall bracket isn't quite straight.

More after the break

Perfect Natural Motion technology, coupled with 100Hz Clear LCD picture processing and a 2ms response time, reduces judder and blur, says Philips.

Sound is handled by an ultra-thin detachable soundbar mounted below the screen.
