    Looking at getting a 28" Flat Widescreen for my bedroom, The tv does not have to be 100HZ as I have not really heard anything good about it yet and that it only really matters on larger TV's.

    I will be hooking it up to a Amp and Speakers as well as a DVD player so loads of connections are needed.

    I have looked around but there is just so much my brain hurts.

    Found this one so far but I am not sure.

    I would not mind paying an extra £50 and going to £350.

    Cheers

    Nick

    P.S just wanted to say how good this forums are!

    This is what I am considering getting.

    Had one and got a refund after a week. It was chopping the very top and bottom of the widesceen picture off.

    Also the contrast+ settings caused flickering in certain programs (fine when turned off) and I had to buy a £40 scart cable to get rid of shadowing.

    It has 2 SCART sockets but only one is RGB enabled. In the end I went back to my SCART switcher and used the single RGB socket as DVDs and the PS2 looked awful through the non RGB.

    Maybe I was unlucky but the fact I wanted a refund rather than a replacement says it all really.

    Really?

    I am considering buying one as well ... but if you look on the Ebuyer website there are a lot of favourable reviews.

    Perhaps you were just unlucky and got a dud set?

    Has anyone else had any experience with this Philips set?

    Thanks

    I've just recently bought a new TV, while looking I saw this, from the Co-Op of all people :

    http://www.coopelectricalshop.co.uk/products/ProductDetail.asp?ProductCode=PAN-WSC-TX28PM1-S

    Under £290 incl. delivery. Not sure how good it is, there have been some complaints about it on these forums.

    I plumped for a Philips 28PW8719, Currys were offering it for £379 on their web. I managed to persuade the guy in the local Currys store to match the web price in-store, so I saved the delivery cost as well :D

    But do I want 100hz?

    From what I have seen (some time ago) watching 100hz football is not as good as 50hz.

    OR am I wrong? and seriously out of date? :lease:

    I am tempted by the Philips 28PW6518C. Same TV with built in radio got 83% in one of the Home Cinema magazine reviews I believe (review link is at the top of the page).

    http://www.electricaldiscountuk.co.uk/itfx_product_details.php?pid=3416

    £353 pounds delivered with the extended 5 year guarantee, or just £303 with standard 1 year guarantee.

    Some places are slightly cheaper if you don't want the extended guarantee, but I thought that £50 to extend to 5 years was a bargain.

    Yes that is a good find ... £50 for 5 years warranty is good.

    I think I will get this then.

    Thanks.

    Unless someone can find an even better deal? :D
