    I've got the Humax 17" LCD set and its excellent value for money. I bought it a couple of months ago in Dixons for £299.

    The Freeview tuner is very stable and holds onto the signal without any breakup (unlike my Philips DTV Freeview box). As well as the usual AV inputs it also has a VGA in for your PC.

    My only gripe is that the power supply is seperate.

    Picture quality is pretty good. there is some motion smearing but you get that with all LCD panels. The news ticker on SKY News is still very readable. Blacks are slightly crushed and the colour temperature out of the box is far too cold but a bit of tweaking has resulted in a very watchable picture.

    For the money, I think it's a good value set.

    Hope this helps,

    Brian
