Hi,

Reading these forums, I'm finding people praising their sets and also people unhappy with the same set.

I am looking to buy 40/42 inch LCD doesnt have to be 1080p, requirements being good HD performance and good SD performance (since vast majority of TV is in SD for now). Also would like good audio (keep reading that M86/M87 has poor audio.)

Been looking at the Sony D3000 - any other candidates?

Also - lots of sets in Currys/Comets are set up running HD demos via Blue ray/HD DVD, not really giving a true indication of SD performance. What are peoples experiences of getting the stores do full demos (ie SKY HD, Freeview)

The D3000 is a lot more cheaper than 1500&#163;!!!!As I see you want the combination so:A 1080p with 100Hz.In your budget will be Toshiba 42Z3030,Samsung LE-40F86,and Sony 40X3000 with a little push

Well after viewing a number of LCD TVs attempts to display SD last night I am now turning my attention to Plasma!
