    Hey guys, got around £800 to spend, maybe a little less, maybe a little more. But as an estimate, whats your recommendations for an LCD to cover these...

    * Component input
    * DVI input (is there much difference between VGA and DVI?, my PC TFT is a VGA one and gives a lovely picture.)
    *Does progressive scan / Component give all screen outputs - 480, 720 and 1080? Or is High Definition only 720 and 1080?
    * Lastly, the big question, High Definition a must????????

    Hope you can help guys, Mark.

    Hi,

    You could try the Samsung LE32R41BX. So far this has received positive reviews except with the a slight problem with occasional image tearing on 60hz sources.

    Most large LCD panels have a native resolution of 768x1366 but support all the sources you mention.

    Whether you notice a difference between DVI and VGA really depends on how good the VGA is. The real benefit of DVI is that you will always get the best image feed whereas with VGA you may have to often adjust the monitors clock and phase to get the pixels and colours to match perfectly.

    I would say that hi def is a must for the future, especially on a panel of this size, you will notice the difference. Although for now HD DVD/Blue Ray discs, HD TV are still yet to be released unless you plan to hook up your PC.
