    Philips 32" - 32 PF 9830

    For a little extra mate this is one of the best of not the best 32" LCD screen you can get for that sort of money. Have a read!

    Re: LCD advice.

    I came across that av forum a while back some really good stuff on there.

    p.s. C_Audiboy how can you buy a HD tv which has no HDMI socket! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif[/img]
    This is exactly the thing i'm trying to get through to people....... people are getting all caught up in the hype of HD and they go out buying blindly. So many people have bought screens probably costing a couple of grand and they will be useless in 2 years or so! There are very few screens on the market at the minute which can even show broadcasts in True HD 1920x1080p. These first screens will have technology which will be improved on in a few months so my advice is wait until the end of the year or early next year before getting a screen and by that time the market will be so flooded with screens the price will have dropped and you could maybe save yourselves a couple of hundred quid!

    Just trying to help.... rant over!

    I was in Miami over xmas and you wouldn't believe how cheap HD TVs are over there - you're talking less than $1,000 for massive 57" HD TVs and almost half that for reasonnably sized ones!!! Rip off Britain.

    You should be able to connect HDMi into a DVI socket - don't know why they bothered with coming up with another new connector as DVI (the full version) should cover everything.

    Re: LCD advice.

    32" LCD for under Ł1400 is easy.
    JVC LT-32DX7
    Just won a few reviews in T3 magazine and another I forget.
    In my opinion,the best looking LCD out there,mainly because of it's hidden speakers.
    I like the fact all you can see is screen.
