    I'm buying a friend an LCD screen, and am after advice on what to get.

    He's not into dvds, or games consoles. He has sky, but this TV will go in a bedroom, and as far as I know, it will be a coax feed from the sky box in the living room, to the screen (I will look into the possibility of changing this to s-video).

    I want to get a widescreen, and think it should be at least 20", and no more than 26".
    I could spend anything from £4-600.
    I'm really looking for a good value, reliable screen.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Any suggestions on good deals at the moment?

    Looks like I will want it to be good enough with a standard coax feed, as he moves house a lot, and won't always have better.

    Hi. I'm confused. When you say a 10mtr composite lead, are you talking about a standard coax? Or does it have several wires in it (RGB)?

    hi think its composite, its the red, yellow and white leads which plug in to a playstation scart end the other plug ends will go in to your lcd in the red yell and white sockets.

    Thanks

    So what are the recommended screens around 20/22"?
    I can see a few threads about 17", and 26" and above, but I seem blind to anything in between.

    Ok, it seems I've just been lazy, and scratched the surface, and missed the dozens of threads on the Samsung LE23R41xx, Rome & RomeII

    I'm now reading through those threads, but if someone stumbles accross this, is the TV ok with a standard coax feed from sky, or would it be awful? (obviously a better connection would be good, but I can't be sure that's going to happen).

    hi phono lead connection is thinner than coax, great pic too.
    then buy a remote extender, then u can control the sky box upstairs in your bedroom, and watch whatever channel u want.
    the lead cost me about £6.50. and 1.50 for the scart end. or u could try a video sender-no cabling to do there.
    as for a panel theres plenty of good deals on 23 inch models.
    i like the lg models, been good to me, pics great, very stylish, and footy and sports are good no motion blur or lagging.
