    Guys i have agonised over an lcd 32 in the 600 to 7000 price range since the world cup, well over christmas i was determined to get the right lcd in the sales. i was going to go for the samsung LE32R74BD, although some say the picture is blurry, i really didnt want to compmise on picture

    I found this forum which is very useful, maybe the toshiba 32WLT66, didnt like the style, also my local curry dixons sold out, I also read here that currys etc the big stores have unfavourable customer care, pixel return policy maybe problem, bad engineers sometimes etc

    I also read here that John lewis do price match, thats a good plicy but no JL near me

    so finally yesterday i decided i want alocal store, richer sounds, now they dont have the lcds that Iv been directed to, but they have a Sony u2000, (abit old) also a panasonics and phillips, nice prices, but remember no pc input!


    I go to the store to find out more, the guy says that I should get there 800 pound samsung or even better the 8000 pound Sharpe, and that the sharp is great, 6 refresh rates, pc input, 2 htmi, great back lighting, widescreen, auto light adjustment etc, but its over budget.

    I go home find that they are priced from 740 to 850 in most places except one, for 615 pounds.

    I ring richer sounds they say bring the companys phone number and that they will ring them and give me a deal, and they did no problem real friendly , i got this for 617 pounds and god is it perfect for me crystal clear great audio easy install (my first ,lcd!)

    I really recommend u try them they friendly personal, usuually local for immediate pick up,5 years guarenntee for 68 pounds i got


    what do u guys think?

    Glad to hear you are happy with your new TV.
    As far as LCD goes you can't go far wrong with Sharp.
    Enjoy! :thumbsup:

    There's a Richer Sounds not far from work. I think they do a good job with their showroom however they do lack a range of leading products. Samsung 27" Bordeaux is not on display and LG 32" is shown as the pride of their pack in the front window. However there are much better LCDs in Dixons etc but they do have a better pricing stratergy and staff are eager to help which is a rareity in most electronic stores!

    The main problem I have with them is some of their displays look a bit tacky. They have a lot of low budget speakers and I can't seem to find Missions or anything credible there which is irritating. I go there for an idea of my soon to get 26" LCD but just end up being confused. I'm sure they could go somewhere - either I'm being an audio snob or is the market that harsh on pricing stratergies??

    It is refreshing to see an independant specialist not rely on BOSH to sell their products! That deserves some respect.

    Get the Sharp, I seen it in Tesco of all places yesterday, {i was dragged to the supermarket by whisper this "the wife"} :) .

    It was running along side an LG lcd and the Sharp gave a slightly better picture.

    I am not bashing Samsung BUT beware of there customer care policy "fix 3 times " before admitting they have a faulty product. So no more Samsung for me.

    Enjoy what ever you buy.

    Hi, I just bought a Sharp 32GD9E - not sure what the difference is but my upscaled DVDs work a treat. My only warning is that I've had a complete nightmare trying to get a higher resolution than 640 when putting my 360 through the pc input. I've had to do this because my model has no component input for the 360.

    Just a warning in case you plan do either of the above and your model has similar limitations to mine.

    It's shame, RS were one of the most competative of companys a few years back.Now they seem to be just treading water.

    I'll second that. RS were a beacon of light in a rip off consumer world a few years ago. They don't seem to be able to compete now (except on customer service which is second to none and their extended guarantees which are refundable if not used). Could there be any price fixing going on? :devil: :devil:

    We all know who the biggest shark in this field is.By going on line only, they will try their hardest to get rid of the small guys.As Mr Murdoch once said "A monopoly is a terrible thing untill you have one!"Then watch the prices rise.
