Give us an idea of your budget and might be able to help you out. Also what is your viewing distance in that room - will the TV be along the long wall or the short one? This will give an idea of whether you really need a 32" or 26"

I'd go for a 26" for a small room, small is sometimes better. 26" screens tend to have a better image and you won't notice the Sky broadcast flaws with a smaller screen so much. I found sitting 8-9 ft away from a 32" LCD was a poor viewing experience.

Viewing distance is approx 10ft give or take a foot (sofa hasn't arrived yet!) budget just "within reason" -any of the standard makes sony tosh panny etc I just want a good alround set

Thanks in advance

Have been shopping around for 26" for a while now and narrowed it down to 3 - Samsung R74, Sony 26S and Panny 500. I couldn;t find the panny at less than £800 but it has the best picture of the 3, the Samsung has a nice design (although the more I saw it the more I thought the black plastic was a bit too plastic - if you know what I mean!) but then again I found it as cheap as £590. In the end I plumped for the Sony - has better picture than the Samsung although looks wise it's a bit :boring: imo. Best price I have found is £630 which is about right for me.

Happy shopping!

How would you rate the picture on the Sony? What is your viewing distance?
