    I am looking to buy an LCD TV for my daughters bedroom.

    She will mostly use it for watching DVD's and Playstation 2 (which will also be a birthday present). She may also watch some Sky TV via a sender.

    My favourite so far is the 23 inch Sony KLV-L23M1/S5, (a bit expensive) although as I understand it this model has no digital input (may not that future proof, looking at HDCP)

    We are looking for something a little 'future proof'.

    We are looking at a min of 20 inch, as I think a 17 would be a bit small. Likewise we don't want to go too big (although she probably would!) :D

    So Couple of questions

    Can any of you kind people :lease: point me in the direction of other comparable LCDs, or would you recommend the Sony?

    In order to fully appreciate/utilise the picture quality should we be looking to purchase a DVD with progressive scan, rather than using the Playstation 2 to play DVDs?

    Many thanks

    Theresa

    Hi

    I had the Sony 23 you are thinking of getting - and I ended up returning it as the PQ was dire!!

    It was REALLY bad. I guess some people love it - but then they only probably watched DVDs, etc on it. And for that it would be fine.
    I mostly wanted to watch Sky + on it using a video sender - and this was a definite no no.

    Some channels were un-watchable. I have now given up on LCD and gone back to my old CRT until things improve.

    Thanks for the reply.

    That is very disappointing, it had an excellent review.

    Can anyone recommend a good model?

    I have read a review on the Sony KLV S23A10 which seems excellent, but even more expensive and not sure if available yet.

    I need to decide within the next week, so any help would be :smashin:

    Thanks

    Great the most replies I get are questioning WHAT birthday presents WE are buying my daughter.

    These presents are from various members of the family.

    Does anyone have any useful comments?
