    have you looked at the Sony KP44PX2. Fantastic looking set. i just ordered one. OR the Tosh 50wh18b, another fine set.

    Another thumbs up for Toshiba in general.

    You might have to upgrade those Bose speakers though;)

    I think tosh is best for RP, Sony are very close behind. If you go for Sony get the PX2 as this is replacing the PS2. As for tosh, mine is the 42wh18b and the picture is great. The 42wt29b replaced this model and the picture is supposed to be a bit softer and not as good. Best you look at them yourself. But Stick with Sony or Tosh

    Hi shaun,
    Went out today and bought Toshiba 42PW23 ... Managed to haggle and got the stand thrown in and £20 off the retail... making it £1,480 in total. I had seen em slighty cheaper on the net but wasnt sure about aftersales service from the net, anyway the company are delivering next thurs and the set it all up for including the dvd and sound system ect ....
    I just hope I have made the right choice :)) Anyway thks for your advice, if you need any IT help feel free to PM m8, was in IT for the last 10yrs (ex Royal Signals)
    Cheers

    Geordie,

    thats great. Im sure you will be well chuffed with it. My sony PX2 should be here soon. I would have gone for another Tosh but they had no 42wh18bs left. Sony is next best in my opinion so we will see what its like.

    cheers matey

    Make sure you post back with your impressions on the px2 shaun. Would love to hear howit compares to your old Tosh. My Tosh RP is now faulty so I may replace it if the sony can produce the goods.

    Cheers
