Only the most dazzling displays make the cut. Now, we need your eagle eye to choose the best TV in the Readers' Choice Awards

So set your eyes on the shortlist, get those fingers ready and vote for the most deserving TV plus nine other products in Singapore’s Readers Choice Awards. Need another reason to cast your vote? One of you will walk away with these fantastic prizes.

What’s better than a full HD TV? An ultra HD 4K TV, with 8.3 million pixels and LG's NANO FULL LED display technology to give your eyes a visual treat. Even without UHD 4K content, LG’s upscaling technology, which analyzes data and enhances each pixel, delivers a smashingly, eye-popping viewing experience even with your usual full HD content.

Philips DesignLine 46PDL8908S/12

Let there be Ambilight to intensify the viewing experience, said Philips.

Toss in Philips’ Perfect Pixel HD picture quality engine and a 1400HZ Perfect Motion Rate to smoothen the viewing experience, and a potential winner is born.
