Editor's Choice Awards – Best TVs 2017
OLED dominates in our first annual TV awards
Welcome to our first annual Editor’s Choice Awards.
During the review process our editorial team can award badges to products that reach a certain level of performance from Recommended and Best Buy to Highly Recommended and Reference Status. These badges are awarded at the time of the review but do not offer a comparison or state if a product is the best of the best. Our reviews are a guide for our readers and members to use when putting together a shortlist of products to consider buying. However we now think it is time for us to introduce our annual best of the year awards, so enter the Editor’s Choice Awards. This is the first time the editor and editorial staff of the site have picked what they consider to be the best products reviewed this year. They will also state the reasons why they have chosen the particular product and why you should perhaps consider their choice when looking to demo or buy such an item.
Over the next six articles we will present the awards for TVs, Projectors, Home AV, AV Streaming Service & Devices, Hi-Fi and Tech & Mobile.
Some product groups change models every 12 months, but in other categories the changes take a longer time and some products remain relevant for more than a year, (some over a number of years). The criterion for being an eligible product is simple and straightforward. It must be a product that has been reviewed by AVForums in the last 12 to 18 months and it must currently be available as part of the official product range from a manufacturer and not discontinued before the end of 2017. This means that all the award winners have been fully tested and reviewed by the editorial team here at AVForums and are honestly presented as their favourites for the past year.
