    Hi all, I am just about to buy a present for my girlfriend, a 32" widescreen TV. Budget is only £400.

    I have researched, and narrowed down to these 5 (what I think) are great deals! But now I do not know which to choose ..... would really love some advice .....

    Toshiba 32Z44 - 32" £375 delivered
    http://www.soundandvisiononline.com/moreinfo/index.asp?product_id=4890
    Pros: Looks good and slim Cons: Nothing major I can see, only Nicam though

    JVC AV32R4 - 32" £397.90 delivered
    http://www.digico.co.uk/default.asp?Detail=Yes&ModelID=10
    Pros: Dolby prologic 2 it says on another website - (is this actually good by the way?) and has surround sound speaker systems with the TV
    Con: Nothing I can see

    JVC AV32T4 - 32" £379.99 delivered
    http://www.be-direct.co.uk/productDetails.asp?referer=kelkoo&id=14119
    I assume this is an older version oof the JVC above, as it looks similar but only has Nicam? So I assume this means the AV32R4 above is a better choice? (correct me if im wrong)

    JVC AV32x35 - 32" £398.99 Delivered
    http://www.digitaldirectuk.com/products_moreinfo3/index.asp?product_id=9284
    Pros: It is 100hz (is this good for general tv watching......?)
    Con: Looking at it, I cannot tell if it is an older or newer television. Is this better than the other JVC's above in your opinion?

    My final choice - I do not wish to spend this much, but it seems like such a good package deal as the TV itself is worth around £450 atleast.! As a package, great - but how does the TV set itself compare with the previous ones I have mentioned in your opinion?
    Panasonic TX-32PM2 - 32" £519 INCLUDES DMR-ES10 DVD RECORDER!

    Thanks

    Hmm... difficult choice!

    The Panny Tx32PM2 is a nice set... I think that would be my choice - if it was based on picture/spec/respect.

    I do think you should try and see them working... would be dangerous choice otherwise!

    I would guess they are all nicam, limited audio output (5-10w) and 50hz sets. Obviously with an amp etc, the audio performance is not relevant. The 50/100hz debate is personal - I feel many 50hz sets actually look better.

    What about AV connectivity? do they all have component? That would be a consideration...

    Also, what about size/depth? That for me wiuld be the show stopper as unless you already have a 32" set, its a huge cabinet which the other half might not be happy with.

    Its a difficult one... just stay away from any sets at a lower price - most are real nasty. Even some of the low end Toshibas have the same chassis as Alba/Bush/Goodmans these days....

    The JVC AV32R4 has a subwoofer and apparently sounds much better than the T version. R signifies subwoofer in JVC model terminology.
