    I've just started looking into LCD TVs and having read around the following spec tv is what I need for now and the future,

    Connections:
    2 x SCART (1 RGB)
    1 x Component
    1 x DVI (HDCP Compliant) or 1 x HDMI

    Must support 720p & 1080i HDTV formats for use with Sky in 2006.

    Would like a 26" - 32" Screen - prefer 32 if possible.
    16ms or under response time
    170 degree viewing angle or better
    450 brightness or better
    600:1 contrast ratio or better

    Current setup:
    - Panasonic DMRE85 DVD Recorder thats outputs progessive via component.
    - Pinnacle Showcenter rgb scart.
    - Sky digital rgb scart,

    I have come across the Sharp GA4 which seems to meet all the criteria but wondered if there are any other lcds that compete with this one.

    Thanks for any suggetions.

    Take a look at the Philips, but you can only use either Component or DVI, not both at the same time.

    I'm looking for something similar. Last month's magazines had a couple of mentions of something new from a company called Humax.

    This is a link to their regular 26" model:

    http://www.humaxdigital.com/uk/products/dtv_lcd26_lgb-26dtt.asp

    Spec looks great (includes 2 digital tuners) - hoping to see one in the flesh this week.

    Note, they also do both a 26" and 32" version which include a PVR.

    Hoping to see some more detailed reviews/comparisons soon before taking the plunge!

    Well the Samsung LC32W33WX matches your spec (actually has both DVI and HDMI) but I can't recommend it at the moment as the first one ghosted very badly on nearly all analog signals.

    The replacement has arrived and is currently sat behind me.

    I'll let you know tonight if it finally gets my thumbs up....however, I don't hold out much hope. Prove me wrong Samsung, I dare ya! :devil:

    You don't mention a price but the Loewe Xelos SL or Spheros match or exceed your criteria. Don't know about the new versions of the 'A' versions.

    Well you can write off the Samsung if you want clear ghost/blur free images.

    Its going back and if Blackpools Currys will stop letting there stupid automated phone system hang up on me I'll find out if I can take it back personally.

    :mad: :(

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    My price range would be £1000 - £1500

    Looking around I've got it down to the following:

    Sharp LC32GA4E
    - Lots of people rate this one and I do know of a couple of places I can get it but they've bumped the price up.

    Toshiba 32WL48
    - Seems to have everything and better connections than the Sharp - however I haven't seen it in the flesh and am worried about the PQ as the 27 inch WL46 had a very bad blurred picture on motion.

    Philips 9976
    - Not sure about this one - doesn't seem to have component which I need for my dmr e85 and I don't know what the difference is with this one and the 9986 - which is much more expensive.

    Any thoughts to which is the best and what should be avoided.


    Cheers
    Wes
