I'm just about to purchase my first lcd television but I'm dazed and confused by all the advice (non-advice) being handed out by the shops. I sense they are just trying to sell me what they want to sell me so I've turned to this forum for some genuine help from people who truly know televisions. I plan to buy from a website but I went to the stores just for reference and info. This is what I want from an lcd set (I'm open to all suggestions): 32in High definition ready It must be capable of handling fast movement (ie football) Other than sport, the TV will be used for films, dvds, kids programmes and general telly like my wife's soaps! I will have sky+ in a matter of weeks and will probably get a dvd recorder to accompany the tv. I also want to use my existing video to play back old tapes like home movies. But, from a review I read on a sharp, the quality from a video to an lcd is not great. Is that true or is it another urban myth? I originally looked at the Sony KLV-L32M1 purely because I've always bought sony in the past. The set impressed me in the shop and seemed to handled sky sports news pretty well. However, the movie dvd they showed me was scratched and useless and I've also no idea how it will handle old videos and terrestrial telly on the odd occasion it's used. That said the wega engine appears to be getting good reviews. However, I popped into sevenoaks sound and vision today and they told me Sony are lagging behind in the lcd market and Sharp are the market leaders. They recommended the LC32GA4E. From a review I read, it appears to have a good refresh rate so it should handle football well but there appears to be doubts about its performance when the feed is of a poorer quality to Sky. Is this a problem and does it plague all LCDs? Are there any other pitfalls with this model? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
