Hi All

I am new to the forum, i have a problem!!I have been researching tv's for the last 2 weeks, I have a budget of £500, i know its not much but thats all i can afford tbh.

I would like a 46 inch tv that is reliable and with a good picture, thats all nothing special.

Any advise on which tv and provider would ge fantastic.

Thank You :confused::confused:

What is the use for the TV other than TV? Do you need a Freeview tuner - HD? How bright is the room? How far will you be sat from the TV? Do you plan to hook it up to a PC? Sport? Gaming? Blu-ray?

£500 is pretty limited for a 46" if you want bells and whistles...

Maybe look at (these are all outgoing 2010 models so may be restricted availability)...

Samsung 40C530 / C580 (LCD)
LG 47LD450/490 (LCD
Panasonic 46S20 (plasma)

I don't think there is a Sony in budget

Good point i dont want to turn up and them not have it in stock, what a waste of petrol that would be ;)
