Hmmm - gets a pretty darn good writeup here:

Another review I read says it doesn't display 4:3 with bars though - it always stretches the picture.. Still, I'm pretty tempted by this!

There are some good comments/reviews of this product on the Dabs and eBuyer websites.

A noisy fan seems to be the biggest gripe, but apparently this issue is rectified by the mkII version of this product (fan replaced by big heatsink).

That review says the TV has an internal fan which can be heard when the TV volume is low. I know that would bother me.

How do you distinguish the difference between a MKI and a MKII?

I reckon this one might be a better buy than the Acer one Video 7 32" HD Ready LCD TV It doesn't have a built in digital tuner, but otherwise seems pretty decent for £699 inc.VAT

I don't think this one is Hi-Def as it's native resolution is too low.

Nope Sharpe one only go's to 960x540 pixels which isn't WXGA so therefore not the one to go for if you want a HDTV.

The Video 7 one from Amazon does 1366x768 and supports 420p,720p & 1080i and looks pretty nice as well.
