    Hi
    I was wondering if you could help -
    I'm going to buy a 32" lcd tv and am swithering between the Hitachi 32LD7200 and the Philips 32PF7520D.
    Anyone have any opinions on which is best?
    Also any recommendations on where is best to buy online? (i'm looking at the plasmacentre; RGB; and aveuronics.)
    Thanks.
    aalo.

    The Hitachi has much better connections, looking at the Phillips in my local store i could not see an SVideo input or Audio out, but it does have Freeview over the Hitachi, but the Hitachi has that favorite "boys toy" the motorised stand.

    thanks

    er, another question, sorry -

    the hitachi has a DVI connection and an HDMI connection whereas the Philips only has the DVI-I connection - what kind of a diffference would that make?

    I'm trying to get my head round all the technical stuff but there's a lot to take in.

    cheers :)

    Well ... I currently have a PC plugged into the DVI port, which still leaves the HDMI port free for a HDMI equipped DVD player or HD Sky when its released - so all my options are covered!

    Are you saying that the change of Scart Lead made a big difference?

    I'm currently stuggling with bad quality Sky. I do have an old donkey sky box so maybe the quality is different with the SKy+ Box......

    I'd say the Philips as the PQ was far better IMHO... it does have S-Video inputs (on the side) and the DVI-I thing is an intelligent one to accept all high def inputs (AFAIK)
