    i have a budget of about £300-£350 to buy a 26" tv, and have been looking at two in particular...

    The sharp:
    argos link

    and the sony:
    argos link

    The sharp can be bought for £330 on amazon or the sony is available for £350in sainsburys

    i've already been told that the sony is rubbish, but just wondering if the sharp is any better ;) oh and just to note, i might be able to get 10-15% staff discount in sainsburys for the sony

    anyone have any opinions? :smashin:

    In store only and at Asda's I just brought a Panasonic 26LXD7, excellent set.
    Usual features inc Freeview for £349.
    Positives = Very good sound and brilliant freeview picture.
    Negatives = No VGA and only 1 HDMI, but for what I am using for (Dinning room) it is excellent.

    Definitely the Sharp. Just prior to Christmas I was nin a similar situation. Following hours of research and ages looking at different screens I picked the Sharp. It has a brilliant SD picture, (every set had a good HD picture), loads of connections, good sound, looks good. Its easily on par with a higher range of TV's for its price. Its not THE best 26" TV but I think it is the best at the price range its in.

    For £330 the Sharpe stands up well, search the net for reviews / comments.
