The title probably makes alot of you assume 'generic post', for that I apolagise. Basically I'm in unknown territory as far as HDTV's go, I'm on the look out for one, but I'm confused as to what to buy, what with all the brands and sizes etc. It can seem confusing. I've listened to the podcasts with the buying guide and it gave me a general scope of whats important however we all have our different 'restrictions' so here goes, Budget: £500 Usage: Films, Games Console (xbox 360, ps3) and SDTV ofcourse I sit about 6ft away from the TV. I'm assuming about 32'' will be enough for me. I guess I need 2 HDMI ports? Apart from that I'm kinda unsure, I realise contrast ratio is important so whatever can offer me the best would be great. Manufacturer I have no real quarrells over, from what I've read Sharp, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung are the 'better' ones. Any help? Thanks.
