    Hi, I am hoping some of you knowledgable people can offer me some assistance. A while back you guided me towards buying a Toshiba 32" LCD which I am really pleased with.

    Now, a friend of mine has £600 budget for an LCD TV, and I am way out of date with the current models, prices etc. Essentially, his primary requirement is to watch Sky TV (through RGB scart). Secondary requirements are to watch DVD (again RGB scart) and possibly PS2 (RGB scart). He has no HD sources at present, but of course, he wants to be as future proof as possible (so wants HDMI ports etc).

    I have done some digging myself, but all the model numbers seem to have changed, so I'm unsure of what decents TV's are out there at the moment.

    Anyone care to offer some suggestions for about the £600 mark? You help is most appreciated.

    :thumbsup:

    Set up your friend's PS2 via component to solve the scart issue. The 32LXD70 is the sweet spot @ 600 notes.

    Always go for the make and then look around for the bargains

    Panasonic, Sony, Toshiba

    Decide on last generation, bigger screen at bargain price, or current generation, smaller screen, latest technology

    Don't go for bargain price big screen "other" makes

    Component cables will also make a huge difference to scart! I'm running comp cables on my projector and the picture quality is soo much better.
