    I've been hunting around for the 'best' 37-40" LCD available right now for around the £1000 mark (give or take a couple of hundred quid)

    I've narrowed (well, cut my list down slightly!) to the following <below> - I'd like to have forum members opinions on which are the 'top 3' regardless of cost - i.e. I'm purely interested in the best picture quality!

    1. Sony Bravia KDL40V2000

    2. Sony Bravia KDL40S2010http://www.johnlewis.com/Audio+and+TV/Televisions/Televisions/LCD+TV/1284/230306785/Product.aspx

    3. Sharp LC37XD1E

    4. Toshiba Regza 37WLT68 LCD

    5. Samsung LE37R74BDX LCD
    http://www.johnlewis.com/Audio+and+TV/Televisions/Televisions/LCD+TV/1284/230307097/Product.aspx

    6. SAMSUNG LE37S73BD LCD
    http://www.dixons.co.uk/martprd/store/dix_page.jsp?page=Product&sku=855565

    7. Sony KDL40U2000U LCD

    8. LG 37'' RZ37LC2D LCD
    http://www.lcdbox.co.uk/product.asp?ProductName=LG-37'-RZ37LC2D-HD-LCD-TV&ProductID=1915


    Personnally, I'm leaning towards these three as my own top 3, but don't know much about it all so am looking for some help!:lease:

    1. Sony Bravia KDL40V2000
    2. Sharp LC37XD1E
    3. Toshiba Regza 37WLT68 LCD

    Thanks in advance...:hiya:

    I'm gonna have to go with the Sharp XD1E, unless you can fork out an extra &#163;80 over the V and get the Sony KDL-40W2000.
    Not sure if it's worth &#163;480 over the Sharp though! But you did say! No worries about the price.

    after looking round currys at the sets on offer personally i like
    Samsung's new 40'' LE40N73BDX
    http://www.dixons.co.uk/martprd/store/dix_page.jsp?page=Product&sku=307559

    ive like the sets looks and the image it was showing in my opinion was the nicest they had as they seem picky about what gets HD feeds. Just to say ive not seen its SD feeds, but was hapy with previous samsungs SD ability, but all i want it for it the 360. If Eastenders looks crap then I guess we then *NEED* sky HD... ohh no ;)

    The Tosh 68 i saw at JL today and I was impressed with its SD perfomrance on the fraggles so a real strain on it, I cant say it was amazing, but certainly watchable at close range and on such poor material, decent freeview chans/programs must look very nice.

    The tosh's where not an option for me as it had to be all black and to satisfy the GF test, technical as it isnt if a tv fails its not going to get brought (she is paying half :) ) lol

    I'm kinda new here (please be gentle!) but have been lurking for a while. We've been looking at buying our first panel, to replace our 10 year old Sony 25".

    My first thought was that the Sony KDL-40V2000 would be perfect; I even found someone selling a factory refurb one, with full warranty, for about £770+VAT. We'd've loved the 'W' but for the £2k price tag attached to it at a local retailer.

    Then my better half put in her two-penneth and decreed a 40" screen as being too large and a 32" would be fine. :rolleyes: I'm not convinced, but I've compromised at 37"...

    Which brings me to the Sharp LC37XD1E. Looks good. Spec reads well. And it's 1080i/p ready. It's a teensy bit more expensive than Mrs M. would like, but I'll gloss over that. (Shh!)

    So, learned forum folk, is this a good buy? How does it compare with other 37" screens available? I realise many won't run to 1920x1080.

    Any advice gratefully received!

    Take your pick from these.

    Sony 40W2000

    I (and several others in another thread) are waiting for feedback from John Lewis regarding a pricematch with S+V, PRC, ED. Buying from JL will give you a 5 year guarantee as well.
