    But only £27.50 for delivery :D

    Presumably it's that expensive because it's a "large 60" high resolution LCD screen". Not too many of them about at the moment :)

    I was thinking of getting this set for my bedroom.....do you guys think this would be overkill? Be honest now. I'm currently using a Minato 14" VCR Combi - would I really notice an improvement?

    Any improvement will be inversely proportional to the size of the wad that leaves your bank account :D

    I'm just not sure Lynx :( - I know I would be gaining a 60" screen but I would also be losing the VCR capability of the Minato. Decisions decisions........

    LOL @ you two :D

    Seriously now, I've just looked again and I don't mind saying I'm a tad confused. It says LCD, but then it also says rear projection. Which is it - an RPTV or an LCD flatpanel? :confused: It looks like an RPTV, but then again...:confused:

    It is exactly what the ad says. An LCD rear projection TV.

    In other words, it has a compact LCD projector inside, which projects, via a mirror, onto the back of a translucent screen.

    This TV is a high derfinition device. This is only of use in the USA (where they have some High Definition satellite trasmissions) or for VERY specialist applications elsewhere.

    Its states 'Single item delivery is £27.50' Do you think it will be any cheaper if I order a few at once?:rolleyes:

    Thanks Nigel :)

    I'm sure you could negotiate a free delivery if you ordered 10 :D

    Well at £37000, it's now looking more and more tempting. I could sell the MInato and just about buy a standalone VCR with the saving. Still, I'm just not sure I will see the improvment.

    I think its a bargain at that price.

    and look at the extended warranty.

    Only £189.00 for three years.:confused:

    Like groundy I am also concerned about the Video, but more important is no teletext. ;)
