    Having recently moved house I am in the position of buying new flat panal TVs for the lounge.

    I had all but decided on the Panasonic PV500..until I saw the new Sony HD LCD range. Have seen the 32 inch up and running and it looks good.

    The 40" version is only £2040 online - which compares favourably to the £2199 I have seen for the PV500.

    Any thoughts on the new HD LCD screens verses the PV500?

    Also I am looking to buy a couple of smaller LCD tvs for the kitchen and lounge. As these will only get an outlet feed from Sky+ then HD connection etc is not that important.

    So aesthetics and value are also factors. There are some good deals on the Sony KLV HR3 range - any thoughts on these sets?

    Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but the Sony KLV-26HG2 is excellent and is well worth it if you don't care about HD much. It does have Component inputs too though, so it's not totally HD-less. The WEGA Engine processing makes digital TV broadcasts surprisingly watchable.

    If it had HDMI I'd have bought the Sony 26HG2 as it had a very good picture, in fact it's the best of the LCD sets I've seen on display in stores so far, the best price I've seen for it is £785.
