    I've read through quite a few similar threads, but thought I'd start my own, as everyones requirements are slightly different.

    I'm thinking of purchasing a 23" or 26" LCD (my first LCD) for my main bedroom and would like some advice/opinions.

    Size I've mentioned, but other requirements would be that it would be mainly for watching Freeview and DVD's. HD Ready I guess, presumeably for an HDMI input to run from my DVD player. An integrated Freeview decoder would be good also. It is likely to be wall mounted and I'm not expecting to run a home cinema/surround system.

    I reckon on a budget of no more than a grand, to include for a new, good quality progressive scan DVD player to match with it.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi pete s,
    Same as you and minded to the Samsung 26" LE-26R41BD, it has all you want and recently got a good write up in home cinema.
    Think I will go for it , around £600 plus .

    If all you're watching is Freeview and DVD you're better of with the Sharp LC26P50E, it also has an HDMI input but I wouldn't bother with an upscaling DVD player, just get a decent progressive player like the Pioneer DV-575 which you can connect via component.
