£ 750

A price drop of £250 means that the LG42LH5000 is very good value for money, but arch-rival Samsung does it better for less

£ 325

There are some plus points to this Toshiba's performance, but it falls down when held up against its peers

£ 430

It's not perfect, but handles scale and depth with greater proficiency than most other 26in televisions
