The customer can choose between large, huge and gigantic. Some of the models there are not even 85-inch (here you will find the TV Highlights of the show). However, many customers want it still smaller. The Stiftung Warentest has tested 21 TV between 22 and 43 inches – with a clear result.

The very small models cut through the Bank was mediocre to poor, from 40 inches all the individual models are then actually “good”. This is, however, only in comparison to today’s monster sizes as “small”.

The best dwarf: Philips PFS5863

Who needs a small TV, you should see the Philips PFS5863 with a 24-inch. The picture is not great, here are all the quite small models, but have a weakness.

For the same price there is the best 32-inchers, the LG 32LK6200. He offers compared to the Philips is not only a bigger but also a better image. Really good but it is also here.
