    Oh don't give me another TV to choose from, whats wrong with the Samsung and the Philips. Not to keen on the sharp, was realy wanting a completly black frame which both the Samsung and Philips have.

    Sharp also has black frame but its mixed with silver (which is quite nice imo).

    The Sharp can handle SD extremely well and it's a true 1080p TV, which is excellent for Sky HD.

    The Samsung is good but it cant process very well and its a 720p display. It also has a ageing video processor.

    If you don't want to go with Sharp, the Philips is an good option.

    What about the 42" version of the Sharp Clicky would ir be as good as the 37", I don't mind spending a few extra quid if i'm getting a better TV
