This month's top TV bargains

If you want a big or small flat-screen TV for a low price, here are our picks

Plasma and LCD TVs have dropped in price massively over the past few years, with 50in televisions, which previously cost over $5000, dropping in price to well under $2000. Even high-end models such as Panasonic’s TH-P50G10A have an RRP near the $2000 mark, with stores occasionally dropping them below $2000 for promotions and run-out deals. If you’re on a tight budget, though, the market is still open — here are some of the best deals you’re going to find on LCD and plasma televisions of all shapes and sizes.

Best small-screen TV

Teac LCD22HDM, RRP: $799

As a television for a bedroom or study the Teac LCD228HDM LCD TV will serve well, with multiple video inputs and options for playing back video, audio and pictures off a USB stick or memory card. It doesn’t have any image enhancing features, but for casual viewing it’s good enough. This television’s multimedia features means you won’t need to shell out for an external media player — it’s great for a budget bedroom setup.

What’s Hot: Decent picture quality, integrated card reader and USB port

Best mid-size TV

Hisense HL81V68PZ, RRP: $1149

With Kogan’s KEVIN37 cut-price LCD television being phased out, the time has come for a new mid-size LCD to take its place. These LCDs are well suited to small apartments and reasonably sized living rooms.

What’s Hot: 4000:1 static contrast ratio is decent, simple and fast interface

Best big-screen TV

Kogan 1080P-47, RRP: $1699 or Hisense HL119V88PZ, RRP: $1899

Both of these televisions are 47in LCDs, with 100Hz modes and acceptable static contrast ratios. If you’re looking for a big screen that doesn’t break the bank — and has picture quality acceptable for TV and occasional Blu-ray movie watching — check these two out. You might be able to find televisions from Samsung and Panasonic on special for prices not much higher than these TVs, but if you can handle some haggling you may be able to get these budget models even cheaper.

What’s Hot: Decent 100Hz implementation, good picture quality for the price

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

Laura Johnston

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
