Was browsing at a retailer yesterday, looking at the range of HD ready flat panel TV's. This new 32" Sony model was on display. I have to say it was the very best LCD picture I have ever seen. Every other LCD screen looked pale, washed out and lacking in detail, by comparison. Admitedly it was playing DVD at the time, via RGB scart. Switching to freeview however it still looked excellent. The best bit however was when the shop assistant offered to demo HD (via Euro HD1 channel). This was done via the HDMI connector. It was brilliant - better I think than the 42" Pioneer which was also hooked up to the HD feed. This may however be due to the smaller screen size, and probably standing too close to the Pioneer. To think you can now buy a TV of this calibre for less than £1,400 (quite a bit less if you hunt around online). I can remember not too long ago paying a similar price for a 32" CRT. This has now gone straight to the top of my wish list to replace my 37" non-HD ready Philips Plasma. Just one moan - we had difficulty finding the HDMI input connector. After much head scratching we located it on the top left hand side. This means that thee is no way to hide the input lead, so that you'll have to live with a clearly visible cable jutting out from the top side of the panel! Looks very much like HDMI was added as an after-thought!
