    Still searching for my first LCD..

    Has anyone had or played with the above tv's.. I have seen both running in store.. both have the same connections (no component though) and are roughly the same price.

    I cannot though find any useful info with regards to screen refresh time as I wish to use the screen for ntsc videogames as well as dvd movies (which are mostly ntsc) and I don't wish to get the blurry motion problems.

    Heres the 2 models I have been looking at :

    Sharp LC-15E1E

    and the philips :

    Philips 15PF9925

    Cheers

    Matt

    Hey up,

    I have the 13" version of the Sharp, Sharp LC-13E1E My Girlfriend got it for me for Xmas. Its not a bad little box sits well in the bedroom replacing the old 14" portable and taking up far less room. I only watch terrestrial TV but Sky+ is going to be connected up when my TV link arrives. I don't play any games on it or use DVD.

    Cheers

    I've got the Sharp Matt. I'm afraid I'm not a gamer though, so I can't help on that front. I do know that all Sharp LCD panels have a pixel response time of 25ms, and that the pictures from the LC-15E1E's internal tuner are a bit mushy. If you compare to the same channel from a Sky box the whole picture is a bit murky. Bear in mind this is only in direct comparison though, the internal tuner is perfectly watchable. It's only a 15" screen after all. The sound quality is excellent (for the size), and the set looks great. I seem to remember though, that you will be watching the screen from below. This will be a problem with the Sharp. Due to the nature of it's stand, even in it's most upright position, it will be leaning back by about 15 degrees. So unless you are using a tilting wall bracket, you could have problems. The panel itself has very good off axis performance, it's the stand on this particular model that's a problem. The LC-15B2EA has the pedestle stand which will tilt downwards, but the panel on that model is older with poorer specs.

    Yeah I agree with the comments on the audio quality of the screen, the Wide setting gives a really good effect.

    Thanks guys..

    Steve. clearly you know more than Sharp themselves who have not got back to me about refresh rates...

    As it turns out I am off to Avsales on monday with my Q to try out the Relisys 17" wide lcd.. which is supposed to have a 16ms refresh.. I'll post here whether I buy it or not!

    Cheers

    Not to be pedantic :devil: But you must remember it's response times, not refresh. LCD's have refresh rates, too!

    Can you update me on your view of the Relisys 17" when youve seen it on monday ?
    I have seen a picture of it a\nd it doesnt look the part really (very monitor like :))

    if it is good i presume you just need to buy a TV box to go with iit?

    there is an excellant one in Stuff magazine this monthh which has all the freeview and radio channels, a keyboard and can be used with TV broadband/internet etc. Only £130


    I have the same problem as MAtt i really want to buy a LCD TV but i think that around £400 is really the most one should pay for a TV for the bedroom. So all views /ideas on sets appreciated

    The relisys has a tv tuner built in and from this month will have teletext..yes it does look a bit monitory... but it does come with a 3 yr RTB warranty which u do not get with the likes of sharp/philips (unless u shop at JL)

    I'll post on Monday.. also I should poss be able to try the Sharp and AG Neovo screens as well...

    Cheers

    Matt
