    hello.. just bought the Daewoo last week .... I was initially quite pleased ..... but .... I wanted to bypass the tuner box as I only use Sky, DVD and PS2 ..... got the DVD and PS2 wired right into the screen, but couldn't get it to recognise the Sky box for love nor money.... anyway, I wasn't too bothered about that, as keping the tuner box gives me even more inputs.....

    So far so good.....or so I thought.......
    After three days, everything has taken on a green pixelated outline and is only just watchable (whether I go via the tuner box or not) ..... and the next day, my PS2 and DVD player (which go direct in to the screen) are now unwatchable as they are almost pitch black.

    The repair man is coming tomorrow, so I hope he can fix it !

    So far, I regret buying this screen, and maybe should have found a few more £££ for something I can trust a bit more, or maybe I'm just unlucky.
    The fact that the glass plate between the legs has the logo on back to front, and that the screen buzzes loudly every time a bright image comes on, I have chosen to ignore......

    Maybe it's just dying ....

    For 2.5k you can do so much better. That's almost Panasonic money. Certainly Hitachi money, you are so much less likely to have trouble with either of those.

    But you've already said you don't need the tuner.

    And the speakers will be rubbish anyway. A stand or wall mount you will need, allow £150.
