    I'm looking for a new 28" TV for the bedroom. Can stretch up to about £500 and would ideally like an IDTV (although if the best options are pure analogue options I can add a freeview box, but would prefer the "neater" option of a digital tuner inbuilt).
    Not concerned about the make, what with me not really a brand snob! ;) but things I would ideally like are two RGB scarts and the best possible PQ. Not concerned about the audio output of the set because it'll be hooked up to an amp for audio, so DPL or DD is not an option i'd want to invest in.

    Any recommendations on this please?

    Sainsburys supermarket in Keighley West Yorkshire are doing a Sony KD38DL10 package

    http://products.sony.co.uk/productdetail.asp?id=2_172_4444 complete with Sony DVD player and a Sony VCR for £499.

    It's a 50 Hz scan set, with two scarts, but only one is RGB, that said, considering what you get for the money it's a good deal. This set recieved a 5 Star review, which you can read on this site.

    If you want three scarts [two RGB] and 100hz scanning, I can personally recommend the Sony KV28FX68. I paid the best price I found at £461 delivered [excluding stand] But if you add on a decent digi box, DVD,VCR and stand, it bumps the price up to circa £761. Hence I reckon that Sainsburys offer is a good deal, but there again I'm not a TV nutter, I just like a superb picture and decent sound at a reasonable price.

    Thanks. The Sony DL10 looks perfect.
    The deal from Sainsbury's looks great value, but i'm nowhere near Keighley and no local Sainsbury's do anything in the way of electronics. :( What a shame! :(
    Comet have the set on its own for a shade under £440 which is the best ive found. Gonna have another scout round for a better price and place an order soon.

    Thanks again fella's :)

    There are lots of inaccuracies on the Comet website. For instance, it says that the Panasonic TX28DTX10 has picture in picture and picture in text, which it doesn't.

    (BTW do lots of sets have these features?)

    Also consider JVC AV -28D40 over budget but an excellent TV!
