    What would you would guys recommend for my friend who wants an LCD due to a kid that loves the pause function on Sky+ and watches kids TV for hours on end during the day. He has rightly waited until now as LCD's screen have come on leaps and bounds since I got my plasma 2.5 years ago. Thing is there is so much choice out there.

    Must be good with SD, be 24fps compliant for future use and all the usual things. I have read the latest What Hifi Mag which speaks highly of the Samsung yet strangely says the Sony is better despite some motion blur:eek: albeit Sony is out his price range. Unlik Hifi it almost impossible to get a decent demo of screen in shops.

    HDTVtest gave a great write up for the SD performance of the Sharp LC46XL2E, it's available from Crampton and Moore with a free Sharp BDHP20H Blu Ray player and a 3 year warranty for £1289 - http://www.cramptonandmoore.co.uk/lc46x20e-copy-i603803.html

    I'm almost tempted myself but think it may be overkill in my room!

    Often overlooked but quite well specced and much cheaper than a similar specced Sony you could do a lot worse than take a look at a Sharp LC46XL2E.

    24fps compatible, 100hz, 10bit panel. All for £1200-£1300 :)

    EDIT....Meh..beat me by 1 min :)

    philips 47" has great sound for an LCD lots of bass aswell
    24fp 1:1 1080p support (HDNM 48hz for smooth motion an absolute must imo)
    3x HDMi

    great with in built digital freeview at that size than many 40" LCD`s sometimes its knockout considering the poor quality of sd digital tv.

    can be had for £1500 and its a £2100 set.

    looks are very expensive, build is quality.

    ohh and you get ambilight too
