    Hi people

    Can anyone recommend an LCD TV - it would be a second TV to go in the bedroom, and I'd spend up to £1000.

    Any and all advice or recommendations please!

    Cheers

    FtF

    Some questions thar might help solicit an answer:

    - 4x3 or 16x9?
    - preferred size?
    - will you need to watch it from below the horizontal?

    Prefer 16x9, I think. For bedroom so not too big, and probably would watch it from below the horizontal, yes.

    You could do worse, then, than the Grundig 17 inch item on sale at Dixon$ (much as I hesitate to recommend that anyone buys anything from D$G). It has a wide viewing angle up, down left, right (not true of all LCDs) with a high resolution panel and a fairly decent scaler. IIRC, GBP700.

    DO NOT consider the Panasonic 15 inch item (with or without onboard DVD) because it has a very poor below the horizontal viewing angle.

    Other options - 15 and 17 inch items from Samsung (check the viewing angle on these, they aren't all the same) and the Sharp Aquos series.

    There are probably others; the easiest to see demo'd is the Grundig.

    Larger? 22 inchers from Samsung (LW22A13 - don't bother visiting Samsung's website, it ain't there) and Sharp Aquos. Both come out at over GBP1000 though.
