    My only requirements are -

    Screen size - 28" or 32" Widescreen
    L & R Audio Outputs
    2 Scart sockets - At least one to be RGB
    50Hz
    Main usage - DVD and Video Gaming (hence NO 100Hz!)

    Any help on recommended sets would be appreciated.
    It's driving me mad trying to pinpoint the best models.

    :)

    I have the brand new Sony KV28HX15. Looks gorgeous, picture is great.

    50Hz, Virtual Dolby, 2 Scarts, 1 RGB. Audio outputs - check on Sony site.

    yeah I heard that Football and sports don't look good on a 100Hz set but is this still the case with the newer 100Hz sets like the new Panny range?

    Yes. It looks bloody awful after seeing 15 years of 50Hz crystal clear RGB gaming.
    100Hz TVs process the image before it hits the screen which gives it the inferior look.

    I went through five 100Hz sets all from different companies before I gave up and decided that 50Hz is the way to go until technology improves.
