I have the 15" one and the picture quality is very good.

My local Comet superstore has the 20" one on display - try popping to your nearest comet to see if they can order one in for you to demo.

Hi Techno freak,
Thanks for this. Have you seen the 20” screen? If so what do you think?

Cheers

Which Comet did you go to Tf? I have tried both comets in my area and they say its too new and is not in yet. For the price I can’t expect top notch but if the picture is lower than the average then I won’t bother.
I was also a little bothered that 20” would still be too small after being used to an old 28” tv but I guess you get used to it. 23” is just too expensive still (£1200 > ).

Thanks Techno freak

Rich.

I wasn't impressed at all.... would rather save money and get a very good 17" Yes its smaller than a 28" CRT, but its fine for bedroom use.

Looking around, i have found the Sharp Aquos 22" Widescreen for £999....

The comet was in Teesside and I too would wait and save a little more if it to replace a 28".

I want another LCD for my bedroom but 17 - 20 is just that little bit too small.

I like the 26" JVC but my better half thinks that will be too big - 23" id proably the way to go for me.

I think it might pay to hold on a little while as it looks like the LCD prices are starting to come down a bit.

If you search on pricerunner or shopsmart you can find a few 22-23" wide screen models for around the £1000 mark.

oh well, I have just taken the plunge and purchased the TV! Its so new that its difficult to find out anymore about this set.

I musty admit , I have prepared myself for the down grade in size, but we have always said that the 28" (actually 27" when measured!!) is too big really for our lounge. Besides when you find a price online at £560 including free delivery then its a deal that cannot be missed really!!

Yes, you can hold on but electricals are always and will always get better and cheaper.

I'm sure they will get cheaper within the next year or so but I reckon i'll only keep this for 18-24 months and easily sell it on E-bay as its not as bulky as a full on dead weight television. I am pretty much prepared to loose a few hundred in this period. Mind you its £100 cheaper than most other online retailers and £350 cheaper than offline shops, so should be ok, providing the set is what I was expecting, quality wise etc.

I'll keep you posted!

Nice setup on your website by the way!

Cheers

Rich.

What was it that you were particulary not impressed with?

The picture wasn't as sharp as some of the others i've seen was basically it... ok it was in a store so unlikely to have been set up perfectly.

I'm sure you'll be happy when you've set it up to your tastes though :)

Its apparently only 640 x 480 pixel format. Do you think this might have something to do with the sharpness?

cheers

..so...? what's the verdict??
I must say, at that price I am very tempted... but then I am worried by the low resolution...

Can you update us pls?

No verdict as yet. have not received the unit yet. purchased online but QED managed to lose my details in the office , so did not process my order, even though my order showed up on the online tracking facility!!??
apparently sorted now, after having phoned them.
I am a little confused as to the resolution as I have seen other sites stating 1280 x 768 pixels as well as stating 640 x 480 ?

no details as yet on LG website. Very useful!!

I should get the tv sometime late next week.

I have simply taken the gamble and gone for this because of the price. Hopefully the price doesn't reflect too much on the picture quality. Couldn't find any reviews anywhere as its too new apparently.I'll post an update once I know more.
