    My girlfriends TV, a Black Diamond, has stopped working so she needs a replacement.
    But she only has about £300 to spend. Can anyone recommend a good 28" set they have bought recently?

    Cheers guys.

    Thanks for that driver8. I ended up buying a Panasonic 28PS12 and DVD player combo from Comet on Wednesday. £500 for the lot.
    I know that's outside her budget but I'll let her off with the difference.
    I'm very impressed with the TV. The picture is really good. I turned off the flicker fixer and the other processing stuff, apart from the AI, and it looks great.
    The DVD player was causing a bit of inteference with her cable box when I used a scart splitter but it was OK after I moved the DVD to AV3.
    3 scart sockets (2 RGB) on a TV for that price is pretty good I think.

    I bought my Mother the above mentioned Philips 28" 6006 with FM Radio and she is delighted with it. Great value for £299

    I thought that £500 package deal in Comet was for a TX28PS1, not a PS12? (The PS1 has two SCART sockets, not 3)

    If you got a PS12 then let me know - thats a cracking deal for £500 plus a DVD/Video combo!

    cockbongo,

    The package your thinking of is for the PS1 and DVD/VCR but the £500 PS12 based package is for the TV and a matching DVD player.

    It's definately the PS12 I took over to the girlfriends house last week.

    Ah, i see. Was in Comet yesterday and never saw that package being offered - pretty good deal.

    Just bought a TX28PS12 from John Lewis actually - end of the line as they don't stock it any more. £449 with free delivery and 5 year guarantee which i thought was a great deal.

    Let you know what i think when it arrives tomorrow.
