Best small TVs

A roundup of all the small screen TV reviews we've done in 2010

TVs under 42in are often appropriate for smaller living rooms, bedrooms or studies where there isn't a large distance between the viewer and the screen. You can buy small screen TVs for anything from $100 to upwards of $2000, from no-name brands as well as the major TV manufacturers. They're almost always LED or LCD TVs, though — plasmas are rare below 42in sizes.

Sharp LC40L650X

Sharp's LC40L650X LCD TV misses out on the advanced features found in more expensive televisions but for watching Blu-ray, DVD and broadcast television it does an acceptable job. Its USB input plays back a range of files, and it has good picture quality for a budget television.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
