    im in the market for an LCD tv been looking at the toshiba 37wlt58. i currently have a 42" Toshiba rear projection TV.

    i will be looking to connect a Sky box and Playstation 2 to the LCD screen.

    i am looking for some feedback on the quality of picture from a PS2 on an LCD TV.

    It'll look rubbish. So will sky.

    Frankly a large set will only come into its own with great source material. PS3, Xbox360, SkyHD and maybe even bluray movies may all be available to you before Christmas 06 - thats when any HD set will sing.

    All of them will only be 'ok' with normal TV, including current gen games.

    Progressive scan stuff (modded xbox/import xbox or PS2) will look a bit better.

    As Richard implied, most PS2 games are interlaced. Not only that, but the console uses a fairly low vertical resolution as far as I'm aware - it's a little trick that's exposed in a particularly gruesome manner on a panel based display. It will look very jagged.

    currys online sometimes have pretty good deals. Might be worth seeing it they'll price match themselves?
