Can't seem to find many reviews of the set though.
Essentially that is the same one just with freeview

Very very good price.

I like the look of this one. Check out AV Forums for some helpful comments. £20 cheaper here http://ws3.homecinematv.co.uk/showpr...BX&warrantyid=
Think I'm going to cave in and finally buy an LCD!!

I popped into comet at lunchtime as I hadn't been there for a while. They had Hi-Def LCD's and plasmas showing Hi-Def demos. It was pretty amazing. Even up close the detail was very good. I reckon when connected up correctly (obviously running thru PC setup mode! @ Comet), inside your own room, lights dimmed and a Hi-Def disc at the ready, these screens are going to blow people out of the water. I can't wait. Not that I'll be able to afford one.

I can't find much about it or the company. I don't like the way that you pay them via PayPal - wouldn't that result in your credit card agreements NOT covering the purchase in the event of problems?

im after a 25 - 30 inch LCD TV with freeview built in. I've just seen the
Sanyo CE27LD4B model over at Empire Direct for a few pennies short of 700 quid. Theyre throwing in a 3 year warranty and a free DVD player too.

Has anyone got this TV or could they recommend another model, bearing in mind I want one with FreeView built in and don't really want to spend more than about 700

does anyone have a view on the Toshiba 20VL44 20 ins LCD TV? It's for the kids playroom to replace an old and huge Sony 21" normal TV.

It's £419 at Tesco

cheers,

greg

im looking at this too at the moment as my bro is after one. (well the 26" version in the same range which has same features i believe)
i dont hear anything bad about it, gets 8/10 on average over all independant review (cnet) have yet to see anything from ACTUAL users tho.
have seen this tv set up in comet and it looks STUNNING, go have a look for yourself, integrated digital terrestrial TV is also a bonus.

philips do another level up too which includes more intelligence to improve the picture but those screens start at £1k.

Does anyone have one of these yet

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...575029-5196665

I am getting very tempted to buy it. Are there any good alternatives for a 26" LCD?

I bought one of those just over a month ago, well it's the version without the freeview decoder. Got mine for just under £600 from digi-uk.

Very happy with it so far, picture from sky digital looks nice and crisp. That said my ps2 picture isn't great- can be pretty blocky. I've tried both component and RGB scart leads without much joy in resolving the issue- but I think that's more to do with lcd technology that the tv.

Not sure about frames, I've just got mine up using the stand that comes with it. If you check the avforums.com you should be able to find what you need- recall seeing a thread that asked about stands for this tv.

just had a payday wander round PC World and spotted the Samsung SM930MP for 300 quid. Looked very nice and was sorely tempted. Has component, dvi, rgb scart. Thought I'll go and see how much cheaper that is online and it appears to be nearer £400 everewhere else.

anyone got one and care to share their experiences, I'd be looking to use it for pc/xbox 360/dvd and maybe in the future sky or freeview.

well went back this morning and picked it up, for £300 it seemed too good to be true.

firstly it's a lovely monitor, no duff pixels, bright sharp and a lovely warm tone to the colours. no blurring on the cod2 demo either which is always a worry with lcds

tv reception aint great (am gonna have to run a feed from the aerial down to the bedroom) but it still makes a decent crack at it.

fm radio reception is good and its really nice to be able to sit here and type away to moby on radio 2.

got the dvd player hooked up via rgb scart and it produces a very nice pic, after fiddling with the settings for a while I'm more than happy with the picture.

not got anything with component to test that out (yet roll on dec 2nd)

very chuffed.
