    Hello everybody,

    I am looking for a 26", powered by a Sky box and I am not fussed about any PC connections. I am fussy about picture and sound quality though. Quality over gimmicks really. So far I have the following 3 in my short list.

    Sharp Aquos LC26GA4E (subject to availability)
    Sony KLV26HG2
    Panasonic TX26LXD1

    Your expertise would be welcome.

    Thanks

    David

    Will you want to go to SKY Hi-Def? If so you need HDMI or DVI with HDCP, which means the Sharp on your list.

    No not really as I am only using the Sky box and not the Sky service. Would that fact change your recommendation?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Sky Hi Def will be coming in 2006 and it needs a TV with a HDMI or HDCP compliant DVI connection (These are the specs Sky have set). So, in the future, if you want to view Sky Hi Def on the panel you are buying now, it needs digital connections.

    Also, if Sky are doing this, Freeview, NTL and Telewest will probably follow suit albeit about 5 years after no doubt when you've probably got another panel anyway !
