Sharp LC26GA5E

Right, if I am correct, the only differences between this and the GA3E version are the lack of a DVI input and the fact that the speakers are not detachable. Is that correct?

The speaker side of things is something I have no problem with but I would like to ask if I would really be missing out if I purchased the GA5E?

The tv will be used as my main tv in a small living room for normal tv viewing, playing dvds and watching the footie on Sky. No PC will be hooked up to it.

On a tight budget but really want a good guarentee with any LCD I purchase and Robert Whyte are offering this LCD at £999 with the 5 year guarentee.

What I mainly want to know is would I need a DVI input to use Sky+?

Maybe many dumb questions in there, but I had to ask.

At the moment you have no need for a DVI connector. However if in the future you want to view the new high definition sources like Sky HD, HD-DVD or blu-ray, then you will have a problem.
