    Looking to buy a small lcd screen as christmas present for my mum.

    Will be used in the kitchen so about 15" is max size. Quality not too important as will only be fed from an rf lead and obviously won't be used for any proper viewing.

    Anyone seen any good deals on such a set ??

    Many thanks.

    If you're looking for a 15" lcd at a reasonable price Dixons Group are offering a Goodmans 15" for £299 ( £270 if you know someone who works in the group ! ). My sister and mate have both bought one and the PQ is surprisingly good. If i remember correctly the panel is one of Samsung's Wyseview jobbies. Also comes with a scart connection as well....

    I myself bought a Grundig 17" widescreen for my bedroom £499 at Dixons but £450 with employee discount....No scarts alas but component in for DVD, S-video and composite connections. PQ through component and s-video are superb, through composite good and through RF ok dependent upon your ariel. Buy a cheap Freeview box and the difference can be alot !

    Probably too big for what you want, but this is still a good deal.

    You would have to buy the optional TV tuner to go with it (another £29.99).

    I've got one,

    The pictures really quite good for the money but I find the sound a bit tinny.

    Thanks fro reply Rad

    Sound probably not a major
    Was thinking of it for the Bedroom but it would be quite high, is the viewing angle from below OK do you know?

    What connections does it have for TV?

    Thanks for your help.

    I'll check the angles tonight and let you know.

    Connections it has, DVI, normal VGA, composite, normal telly aerial, I can't remember if it's got S Video or not.
    I'll check that tonight as well.

    Just checked the manual and it does have S Video.
    I'll PM you the PDF of the manual.

    hello,

    I'vechecked and the viewing angles are really good.

    You'd be fine from all angles that I checked.

    Cheers,
    Rich.

    Sorry for the late reply. I think Rad had answred all your questions. Its a Dabsvalue item, so make sure they actually have stock before you order one.

    I use one of these in the bedroom. Not as good as the dedicated TVs but cheap one of the best designs. It's fussy on viewing angle but can be tilted when mounted on the wall (only takes a couple of screws as the stand folds round to become the bracket). You can get them from Scan and Monitor Whse I paid about £260.

    Edit Need to add speakers though:)
