    Well, last night a lightning storm fried my Techwood plasma before the missus had a chance to unplug it, so looks like i'm looking for a new TV! Haven't been keeping up to date with whats good or not, so can anyone recommend a good plasma (or lcd i guess, not sure what they are like these days?) in the £1500-£2000 range? I need a dvi input for my PC, a vga input for the xbox360 i've got on preorder (although i guess it can do component as well) and maybe hdmi for skyHD (if you can get hdmi in my budget)? I'll be running stuff mainly in 720p res on my PC so something that does that well would be my main aim. Any help would be greatly recieved!!

    cheers

    jon

    Unlucky Jon

    Scarty, doubt any of those would come in under Jon's budget. It's more in line with the new Hitachi 6600 (supposedly HD Ready), Panny PWD8 (SD screen but HD Compatible) and the Samsung HD model.

    I can only vouch for the PWD8 myself but you'll need more advice from some of the more experienced people on the forum to help you determine what the best model might be taking into account connection to PC and Xbox.
