    Does everybody agree that checking the picture quality of any tv BEFORE you buy the set is a nightmare !!!

    When buying a pair of hifi speakers you can compare products in the comfort of an easy chair,with a cup of coffee in your mits,take
    some time making your choice safe in the knowledge that have
    made a wise choice BEFORE you get your new product home.

    BUT when buying a new widescreen tv (which often costs a lot more than a pair hifi speakers) you generally get the following : -

    1. Poor quality diasychained aerial feeds to loads of tvs.

    2. More often than not you are unable to view your shortlisted
    tv's side by side to compare.

    3. Unable to move back far enough to view your intended
    purchase at the correct viewing distance.

    Or do you know of places that provide a better service than most?

    Best thing to do is bring along your DVD player, with the best quality scart lead you have, and your favourite DVD film.

    Then upon arriving in the store (high street even), claim that you are interested in buying a widescreen TV, and that you feel the best way for you to determine the best set, is to view a DVD film on it...

    They very rarely say no.

    Personally I would go at a quieter time (early morning), so you can fiddle with all of the TV's features...
