    Hi everyone,

    As my name suggests I’m a student who’s looking to buy a starter television that I can expand on but without spending too much money (grumble grumble :mad: )… You're all probably tired :boring: of newbees wandering in every so often, but could I please ask for your help? I’m looking for a 28 inch Widescreen TV with Nicam. So far the best prices I’ve seen are:

    .Toshiba 28W23B:
    QED: £309.78 , Tesco: £ 299.99 :), Dabs: £311.37 ,
    24-7: £335.00 & Robertsons: 324.00

    .Samsung WS28V53NS
    QED £289.35 , Dixons £344.98 , Unbeatable: £293.49
    BE Direct £287.99 :) & Empire Direct £293.85

    .Thomson 28WF201G
    Comet £299.95 :) , Dixons: £384.97

    Could anyone offer any advise on these models ‘as starters’, which one’s best or if there’s anything else on the market that I should be looking for in this bracket I should know before parting with cash?

    Thankyou for any help you can give,

    Newbee:rolleyes:

    My friend's parents bought a Toshiba 28W23B - everything was fine except there was a HUGE geometry problem pertruding toward the bottom of the screen. Must have been that particular set.

    Haven't had experience with the Thomson or Samsung.

    I'd recommend you consider a JVC AV28T25EK for around £399

    Philips 28pw6006 under £300 on a Kelkoo search.
    Good picture with dvds and off air broadcasts.

    Thankyou both for your help,

    The JVC looks great but I'm sad to say its just too much for me right now :-(

    I've had a close look at the Philips 28PW6006 and it looks very promising with lots of great reviews, so I've decided on that one from greatsaves.co.uk (£278.00 inc. delivery + stand) The most expensive dealer was nearly £200 more without a stand!!

    I also like the intergrated radio because we don't have a hi-fi in the lounge so it'll be nice just to have in the background at times.

    I'll b sure to let you all know how it goes,

    Thanks again,

    Newbee
