    check out the sharp ga6 saw it next to the tosh both having a hd feed both looked great but the sharp just piped it, found it online for around £1400 or the model up the gd7 for £1800 hoping to order one soon after spending ages to decide i had actually decided on the tosh after reading the threads on this site but changed my mind when saw both next to each other in the flesh.

    I'd also like to purchase an LCD to replace my 28" Sony CRT. I won't be attaching a computer up to it though.

    I liked the idea of a 37", mainly because a 42 would just be too big. I fancy the toshiba too, but the Mrs is putting her foot down at the moment.

    The existing Sony has my Sky+ box attached up to it, as well as my PS2. There is also a video but no DVD (i use the PS2 for watching DVD's). The sound is thru a Sony hifi attached to B&W speakers.

    Tough call to make on the two mentioned above - Sharp and JVC.
    JVC DS6 has had a lot of press in recent months - all very positive indeed. Equally, the GA and GD predecessors have always received great praise - can't see Sharp going backwards after that, only onwards and upwards.
    Styling my be the final deal breaker, so it all depends on your criteria.
    As the GD7 has the external unit for all connection and Freeview, it's another box needing space, but equally, it can be on without the TV itself being on - useful if you are recording something off Freeview channels late at night or whilst out of the house.
    So, pluses and minuses.

    Having done some research in these forums the BenQ 37" DV3750 LCD-TV, 16:9, 1920 x 1080, 800:1, 8ms
    Our price: £1,150.00

    is looking good. Great price. I am in the process of trying to order one.

    started a thread on the sharp subject,main difference seems to be the addition of freeview and some more antijuddering tech.

    There is such a premium to be paid for 37" over 32". Why not get a pv500 plasma?

    The 37 inch JVC is the TV that I am looking at buying at the moment - you might be interested to know that you can actually order it for £1300-1400 (37 inch version) from www.cheapelectricals.co.uk - I am currently in the process of sounding them out on some of their t&c's but that is a GREAT price for this TV!!
    Other online prices are aorung the £1550 mark.

    My use of the TV will be for Xbox 360, dvd and then normal TV viewing - I reckon it ticks all the right boxes :eek:)

    I've only seen on picture/mention of the GD7 having an external box. Can anyone confirm this?

    I suppose an external box makes for a thinner panel for wall mounting though!

    Would seem the external box of the GD1 has indeed been removed from the equation. That a few other things have helped to pare the price of the GD7. Shame though, as some of the things about the GD1 were more appealing and welcomed to anyone other than the average user. Dumbing down wins again!!
    So, there's a few difference to perhaps justify the £400 SRP difference between the two models.

    If you consider the cost of a 3 year warranty, then I suppose this goes some way toward the £400 difference in price between the 2 Sharps.

    My current thinking is that I'll go for the 37" GD7 for the living room. Love the 'titanium' look as well as the spec. I cannot find any reviews though... anyone got any pointers?

    My other thoughts were JVC LT37DS6 and Tosh 37WLT58.

    The 3 year warranty is just a special offer Sharp occasionnaly do on selected models, it shouldn't really be used when comparing the difference in price.

    I tend to agree, but let's be honest - the days of getting something for nothing are long gone. Everything is factored in to the end price.
    So, unfortunately the warranty does become part of the difference in value.
    Had a GD1 to review a while back - loved it and the Titanium colour.

    As a result of the floor stand on the FJ you will see that it is usually priced at a couple of hundred more than the BJ with pedestal stand. Personally I will be going for the pedestal stand version as the JVC stand looks nice but wont hold all my kit (my Pioneer amp is HUGE)... with the money I save I will get a seperate AV rack :eek:)

    As I mentioned, cheapelectricals.co.uk have the BJ version for £1338.99 (almost too good to be true), they have advised delivery would be by end of November, they also confirmed it is not a grey import but a pukka UK product - I am just checking to ensure that they will not suddenly up the price at the point of delivery (I want something in writing) and if they answer this to my satisfaction I will be placing the order before the w/e.

    shootandshow.co.uk can do it for the same price I think.

    I am currently specking one from them to partner my rd50. Either the 32 or 37 inch.

    There's a lot of stuff they can get that is not on the website.

    I ordered an rd65 dlp from them . and it wouldn't fit into my house. So I got them to change it to an rd50, and am going to buy an lcd with the change (and a bit more). They have been really good in looking at alternatives for me.

    plus I got a nice ic520 navman unit , which works really well.

    Ring and ask for MattG. It's who I've been dealing with.

    Probably going to go with the 32 2inch sharp as its' a lot cheaper.
