    Size 30"/32"

    Viewing:

    DVDs from my XBOX, plus other digital media from XBMC
    Analogue cable TV

    Unlikely to bother much with fancy cables or HDTV or whatever, just thought that the LCDs look much better in the shop, and not so big and bulky.

    I've already ordered a Philips PW 9570 for £450, but I'm thinking of cancelling it for the LCD, largely because it's an enormous piece of heavy obsolete technology.

    Most of the viewing will be analogue TV. Don't want ghosting (who does), but not going to be watching football

    LCDs I'm thinking about:

    V7LTV32D (£730)

    Relisys RT3200 (£850)

    Hitachi 32LD6200 (£800) (presumably this is not as good as the 7200, costing hundreds more, but is it better than the rest of this bunch?)

    Haier from Ebuyer (£550) - this is 30"

    (Woolworths) Crown CTT3207W £540

    Read a bit about the HDTV, HDMI, DVI, etc. Not that bothered, although it's nice to know you have the option.

    Any thoughts?

    E.g., is the Crown from Woolworths or the Haier worth the extra £80-£90?

    Not going to be buying anything top of the range.....

    I have the money to spend the extra, e.g., beween £550 and £800, just need to get an idea of whether it's worth it, what you get. However, my natural instinct is to be a scrooge ;-)

    Also looking at Viewsonic N3200W for £725. Seems like this might not be good on analogue broadcasts?

    Seems to be fairly future proof though.

    oh, forget it. It was a crook on amazon. I thought it was cheap. But then I saw the £420 he was claiming to sell a Samsung LE32R41BDX for, I knew he was a fraud. Got 7 feedback from selling low value items, now trying to rip people off on amazon.

    Probably would be better off doing something like that on ebay - amazon has a pretty good fraud prevention system and guarantees to protect buyers.

    It would be a pretty nice world if you really could get the Samsung for £420 though :)
