hi mate
after reading alot of bad reviews about in-built dvd players not being reliable, i went against advise and got one for the conservatory. to cut a long story short, after a month the dvd broke:suicide: swapped it for a better spec lcd without a dvd built in and it's been faultless ever since. just something to think about before you buy. good luck

hi mate
i ended up getting a 20" LG from play.com for £270 but you can get just as good for less now. i was warned about the eject mechanism breaking on built in dvds and that is what went on mine.

I'm with Rusty, go for a seperate TV & DVD player. Afterall, you rarely see any well know brand TV/DVD combos, plus you've just about got the budget to get a decent set of both :thumbsup:

Spend £150 on the 19" LG M198WA, which can be found midway down this page - the offer's just expired, but they're normally pretty good at Richer Sounds, so it's certainly worth a try. That leaves you up to £50 to find yourself a decent (upscaling-?) DVD player :smashin:
