    I am going to buy a TV. I looked at the Hitachi 42" plasma but i is just too expensive. So far then i have found the:-

    sony KF-42SX200 LCD screen
    Toshiba 36ZP38 Tv

    which of these has the best picture quality? Which would you buy? I have been told that LCD screens at that size can be fuzzy.

    Which has the best rating?

    please help

    cheers

    Tom

    i have loads of space. The plasmas at £2000 eg samsung & LG i was told were poor. I could even fit in a rear view projection TV but do they have a good enough picture quality. I know so little about this.

    With £2000 roughly to spend on a TV, what would you buy???

    The Sony KF-42SX200 is a LCD Rear Projection TV not a LCD screen.

    Personally I wouldn't necessarily spend as much as 2000 on a regular CRT TV. I reckon it will only be a matter of time before theres a decent plasma out there for that kind of money.

    I reckon either get another 500 quid or so and make the leap to plasma or spend around a 1000 on a CRT widescreen. Go to a proper store to get a demo as it's the only way you can really see what's good and what's not.

    LCD screen is flat and thin like a plasma LCD rear pro is on a cabinet like any other Rear Pro the new Tosh rear pros are good!!!if you have loads of rooom AV sales are doing a Sanyo Z1 PJ with a 6 or 7ft electric screen for £1500!!!! Leaves you 500 for a 28" CRT for ordinary veiwing and a huge image for DVD's Sports and gaming!!!
