    Superb bargain.......

    Relisys RLT1720 from ASDA for an amazing £212.74.

    When I got to the till, they tried to charge me £249.97 (still cheaper than pricerunner=£270 kelkoo=288.40 dealtime=£270)

    Managed to get it for 212.74 ....wahey.

    Only minor niggles are
    1. no Scart (although Scart to Composite and VGA cable included, and
    component and S-Video inputs)
    2. Seems to be no code for Sky remotes (yet - although the note inside
    says 0877 should work by early 2005 ???)

    Good luck!!

    Just bought a Relisys RLT1730 from Asda for £229 (down from their normal £249). Seems a bargain.

    You really can tell the difference between the screen in this and the similar 1720 which I already own.

    The contrast ratio and brightness values are both higher on the 1730 and you get a scart input as well.
    Only problem with the scart socket is that it is rearward facing, so if you want to wall mount the TV on a close mount, that presents a problem.

    I got away with it by removing the plastic cover from my scart lead plug and pushing the bare plug into the socket. This gave me just enough clearance against the wall....

    And no - neither 877 not 0877 work with my two Sky remotes on either the 1720 or 1730.

    I presume that I'll have to go out and buy a new Sky remote at some time, once they've started making them with the 877 code enabled, as there will be no way to update the software in my existing remotes.....
    Still for £15 for a new remote, it seems a fair price to pay if it works....
