    That looks like the same screen they use in HMV Leeds (but with the speakers) - gotta say pic quality looked bl@*dy brilliant - nice black blacks etc, no fuzzyness, motion blurring or anything.

    very nice :)

    This is the Thomson 27" LCD that Currys are offering for under £1500.

    Well here's my ex Sony 30" LCD TV.

    [​IMG]

    It's only a snap-shot as I have just sold it and it's going tomorrow !! It's showing Shrek from a Sky+ recording.

    It's a lovelly looking set and it gives a very good image from both Sky+ via an iScan Ultra and DVD from a Denon 2900 but it does suffer from image lag and is a bit on the small side.

    I am still thinking about what to replace it with. I was thinking about the 37" Sharp but will wait till the new year now.

    Cheers, Lee

    What's the line from "Shrek" again....?

    "Do you think he's compensating for something?" :D


    As a general domestic TV, the 27" LCD is ideal, doesn't dominate the room. It wouldn't suit for a dedicated HC room of course, but for me, 50" is the minimum for a dedicated room and I can't afford that size plasma yet!!

    Considering the Sony 30" but price is high although does look good and solidly made, also mention of image lag is worrying. Anyone know if it is any slower than the other 30 or 32" around? The Toshiba 32" looks good on paper but is huge for the screen size and is quite deep too and not impressed with the plastic build feel. Loonatic, was it jst the size that made you sell prior to decising on a replacement?

    That's part of the attraction, I'm looking for one between 23 and 30" as I don't fancy watching EVERYTHING on a 92" screen... ;)

    They all look great guys!! Nice one...

    They only thing which is a little odd is looking at the Samsung and Panasonics which are I believe 15:9 rather than 16:9 and look a little unusual. Do both of these allow you to see a true 16:9 picture with no image loss ?

    While I'm here I thought I'd add in a piccie of my little bedroom LCD setup!

    On the subject of 15:9 - I looked at a few screens in demo showrooms and some 15:9 sets didn't have a suitable mode for making the true widescreen picture look normal without losing something. Saying that, the Sony and Toshiba models both do a beautiful job with proper 16:9 (hence why I went for the Tosh in the end ;) )

    pics of the new tosh 32wl46 in situ.

    Luckily the stand is a perfect height for the tannoy centre, and the stand and the speaker just (well, the speaker sits over the edge of the oppli by an inch) fit on the oppli. I was quite worried about how I would arrange things. I'm quite glad, too, that I went for this size. Anything bigger would have been too big for my current accomodation. It's much bigger than the 28" CRT I've been using.

    Initial impressions aren't bad. Picture is good, movement has a bit of the usual LCD lagging, and the overall feel of the telly is quite good quality.

    It's much higher than stated on the toshiba website. On the stand, it's 650mm high, the bottom of the screen 205mm off the ground.

    There are a great deal of connections. No DVI or HDMI, but there is a VGA input. Haven't got any component leads, but I think I might just get some and a new DVD player with prog-scan to test things out a bit.

    Jasper that's a good lookin' telly, I almost went for that one as it's 32" and proper WXVGA 16:9.

    But the size of the stands are really annoying as my projector screen now comes down behind telly and it is partially obscured by a good few inches, so I'm going to have to wall mount the telly so I can move it down a tad.

    yeah, I was planning to wall mount at some stage, but I dunno with this telly. I'm sure there'd have to be some special bracket to fit into the slot where the stand fits in.. It's quite thick, the tv, and seems to get quite hot. But almost all the heat comes out the vents across the top, so it could probably be mounted pretty close to the wall.

    Hi,

    Here's a pic of a cheap and cheerful (£260) McPerson 15" lcd Tv I picked up for my bedroom and the home made wall and Tv sender brackets.

    [​IMG]

    For the money the McPerson Tv has a nice sharp picture only the sound quality lets it down but its perfectly acceptable for the bedroom.

    Klippie.
