    Hi,

    I have a budget of around 1100 MAX to spend on a TV. I'd like to get the best bang for my buck, so to speak.

    Baring that in mind.

    Can you please help answer the following questions:

    1) What rear projection would you recommend and why?
    2) If I wait what could I get (How long would that wait be?)
    3) Plasma of size 40inch+ would be out of my price range?
    4) That would leave me with either CRT or RP and CRT only generally go to 36inch?
    5) Where can you get professional reviews of the latest TVs? I couldn't find the latest RP Toshibas or the Sony ones in any of the magazines??


    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    1) What rear projection would you recommend and why?

    Thomson and Toshiba. I have a THomson 40KW613 and once the convergence and mechanical focus is done the PQ is excellent, price was £960
    Toshibas are similarly good.Try to get a WH36 if you can. I've also spotted an absolute bargain at argos, would buy it myself if i din't already have one, they do the 40KW611 which is the predecessor of the 613 for £799 with component inputs!

    3) Plasma of size 40inch+ would be out of my price range?

    They start at a little more than 2K.

    4) That would leave me with either CRT or RP and CRT only generally go to 36inch?

    genarally speaking yes, there is the LOewe Aconda 40'', but way over £1100

    5) Where can you get professional reviews of the latest TVs? I couldn't find the latest RP Toshibas or the Sony ones in any of the magazines??

    do you speak foreign languages?

    I'm afraid if you wait for something better (and cheaper), you'll be waiting forever and never buy anything!

    There's always the next wonderful development on the horizon.

    Be brave and take the plunge. :thumbsup:
