Well for any one whos just wandered into this thread thanks for looking . Having searched through the forums over the last week or so I'm no closer to making a decision on what lcd to buy. This is mainly because every time read about a good one, its panned or has its specs disputed the next day kindof hard to make an informed decision really Basically I'm looking for the cheapest true 26" (no 24.5" for me thankyou) LCD that will comply with the following. Reasonable image quality (thats a given really everyone wants it) Support for HDCP is an absolute must. NTSC & PAL progressive Component would be nice but the TV won't be used for movies as I have a nice we projecter setup for that. All I want is to replace my pretty defunct CRT with a skyHD compatable unit. It seems like a tall order expecially as I keep reading about manufactures falsely advertising specs (video 7) or decent LCD's dissapearing from the market Sharp GA4 anyone. Any help will be greatfully received. Cheers Guthy And despite the fact that aldi is a mere mile from me that medion LCD is so rare it might aswell be made from pure unobtainium.
