    Hi All,

    I'm quite new to all this home cinema stuff, so i'm starting in the relatively shallow end. I'd like to get a 32" set, probably LCD over CRT. I'd prefer a HD-ready set and with as many SCART inputs as possible...

    Does anyone have any recommendations?

    I've been focusing my attention on the following, so far:

    * LG RZ-32LZ50
    * Sharp LC32P50E
    * Sony KLV-L32M1

    Any opinions on those?

    But the more I read the more it seems that in order to get a GOOD 32" LCD TV I need to spend over £1000... is this really the case?

    Thanks for any and all replies!

    Update:

    Ooh I've just seen this
    Hyundai ImageQuest HQL320WR for £749...

    It has some favourable reviews on eBuyer. Does anyone else agree / disagree?

    The Sharp is a good set. It's probably your best bet if you mainly watch DVD's and digital tv. It's great for all the current consoles too. It may not be real high def but it does have HDMI so it can still display it. Some people around here have been saying that the quality is almost the same as real HD, you only really notice the difference from close up. The styling is great too and the price is very reasonable. If you plan on getting Sky HD though you might be better off with a Samsung or something.

    Simply cannot believe your research has not unearthed the Samsung 32" set - have you ignored 75% of the posts on this subject on the forum ???

    In case you were not aware it's the best sub £1000 panel.

    I think researching these forums would have taught the OP one thing and that's not to believe everything you read in the magazines.

    Thats one helluva statement to make. At the end of the day it will all depend on what his main requirements are.

    I'd have to recommend the Sharp LC32P50E got mine yesterday and the picture quality from DVD's, Terrestrial and even Sky is spot on even using your normal scart connections. I'm well happy. :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the replies. After taking a look at the Sharp at both Richer Sounds and John Lewis I think i'll go for it.

    But the only concern that remains is that I couldn't get the demo unit I was playing with to switch to a 4:3 aspect ratio to prevent the TV image from being stretched to widescreen mode, despite following the manual instructions. I was probably just doing some little thing wrong though...

    Will post some pics once I get it!

    If you goto Menu > Setup you can choose 4:3 normal or Panorama mode.

    Hope that helps.
