Brand reliability

In our 2016 appliance-reliability survey this brand of TV was 96% reliable (the average for TVs was 95%).

Sony is the Top Brand

The Top Brand award recognises brands that perform consistently well across product testing, reliability and customer satisfaction.

In 2015, this award went to Sony. This time around, Samsung have moved ahead of other brands in product performance, while reliability and satisfaction is similar across all brands.

Sony still pipped Samsung on reliability and satisfaction, but only by 1 or 2 percentage points (they were both ‘average’ within survey margin of error). But of the tested Samsung TVs, only one scored below the category average score while the top three highest scoring recommended TVs are Samsung models. In contrast, 7 of the 12 Sony TVs scored below the average.
