    I went into a TV shop today and have definitely decided to go for a 32" instead of a 28", since there is more height in the picture with little difference in the width.

    Anway, I'm looking for some suggestions:

    Budget: 600 - 1,000 (although can be a little flexible)
    Tv Size: 32" Widescreen
    Picture: Good/Excellent quality; 100Hz , but query digital artifacts
    Scarts: 2xRGB scarts minimal (digibox + dvd); maybe some other svideo scarts/sockets
    NTSC playback for R1 dvds
    Sound: Nicam; nothing fancy looking to get amp/decoder in future

    Most important thing is picture quality and 2 rgb scart inputs.

    Regarding picture quality: I noticed the flickering today, most visible for static text, ie channel logos, and studio a & studio b in news programs. So 100Hz seems necessary in this regard.

    100Hz breakdown as I understand it:

    Analogue 100Hz: repeat both frames twice within each second, so no artifacts, but normal resolution.

    Digital 100Hz: there are various variants of these, with increased pixel resolution via interpolation etc.
    -- Problems, fast action scenes, lots of artifacts, and comet trails

    Comments & clarities on these technologies would be useful, especially on artifacts and/or if flicker problems still existi with these digi versions.

    I'm looking to get the TV late Jan/early feb, but will wait further if better digi processing, no artifacts tv is coming out.

    Thanks in advance for everyones advice.

    Hi Simon,

    Can't answer your technical questions i'm afraid but I can reccomend the Sony32fx66 I have had it for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. Picture quality is stunning and it looks great to. I had the Philips 32pw9527 and sent it back as it had too many defects black bars shimmering etc so I would steer clear of this one as you sound like me, a bit of a fussy bloke and the Philps will send you up the wall!
