I'm sure loads of people post this but I'd be grateful to anyone who might spend the time answering my questions. I'm looking for a 40" to 44" TV which due to budget contstraints (under £1500) will have to be a rear projection set. The technology seems to have moved on a lot and the new ones aren't that far away from conventional sets in visual quality from what I have seen, but knowing little about them I have some questions. I've seen very nice Sony for £1500 but I need a TV with a stand so my numerous associated devices can go underneath. And obviously the less I spend the better. Is 100hz a big deal? I've seen a cracking looking Samsung set but it's only 50hz. Are the inbuilt sound systems any good on most of the major brands? Are they any good for playing console games? Which features should I look out for and which are marketing BS? Any brands to steer clear of? Any specific set recommendations?
