Aug 12, 2014 - John Lewis has got off to a fairly strong start with its first big-screen TV. Despite not being a 4K TV it establishes a high-end, uncompromising tone thanks to its gorgeously opulent metallic design, innovative audio system, peerless smart TV interface and often attractive pictures.

It's a shame the 55JL9000's dependence on an IPS-style panel means it has problems handling dark scenes. But its strengths elsewhere still make it an attractive family TV, if you can get one before the current £1300 price (possibly) goes back up to £1700.

Jul 9, 2014 - With the 55JL9000, John Lewis has undoubtedly hit upon a suitably ‘statement’ product with which to mark its TV branding debut. It looks lovely, sounds good, and has a cutting-edge smart engine into the bargain. It’s just a shame its potentially great pictures are undermined by contrast issues.Next, read our best TV round-up
