    That is the price I am working towards, I may go slightly higher if needs be.

    Needs to be as big as possible, as good a quality as possible, hopfully that new fangled dvid thingy input, and some way I can connect my pc to it aswell.

    please let me know whats available.

    It will be running with a dvid compatible dvd player, denon avr 1905, and some decent surround speakers when I fins some.

    Cheers muchly!

    Sharp do the 32GA3E and GAE4E that can be sourced for £1242 + delivery (Stocks are running out fast), these seem to be a favourite at the moment.

    Tosh are doing 32LW48 (I think that's the model number) for something similar.

    And then there is the Sharp 26" (26GA3E/GA4E) which can be got for £917 at best.

    All of these have DVI as far as I'm aware.

    How about the Hitachi 28LD5200E?

    28" screen size (equivalent to a 30" CRT - if such a thing existed!), got mine for £1003 when I got John Lewis to pricematch an Internet price.

    It has 2 component inputs, S-Video, RGB SCART, Analogue RGB (15-pin D-Sub) and also DVI.

    It will take interlaced and progressive PAL and NTSC, 720p and 1080i through the component, RGB and DVI inputs, not to mention a whole host of other PC resolutions...

    There was a massive thread on here not so long ago, where I posted a lot of my findings after buying one. Had it about about 6 weeks and still enjoying it!

    that looks pretty good, £899 for the 32", only £15 delivery too.

    what do you guys who are a bit more 'in the know' than me think of this?

    worth getting this with 2 more inches and £200 less than the Tosh 30wl?

    cheers

    TBH, if you're going to be spending that much money on a piece of hardware, I'd steer away from unknown brands, and go for a respectable, established make. Any of the big Jap companies should be fine, or also Philips (but they're Dutch, I believe).

    There are pics of the Hitachi set on their website: http://live.hitachidigitalmedia.com...84/NASApp/DMG/viewProduct_1.jsp?productid=358

    I got JL in Norwich to pricematch against an internet shop that I've forgotten the name of (it's in the thread I mentioned in my post above). As I said, it was £1003 or something about 6 weeks ago.

    JL will pricematch any price as long as it's from a store with a shopfront. This goes for Internet prices, where the price online is identical to the shopfront price.

    It's all a moot point, though, because Dixons are doing the set for £979. Get JL to pricematch that, and you'll get the set for that price with free deliv. and a 5-year warranty.
