    err no :) but be prepared for lots of different answers that won't help you in the slightest :D

    Everyone has their own requirements and different sets are better at different things so getting unanimous agreement is nigh on impossible.

    But you can be sure that having done all the research and sorted out the best price... you go round to JLP for a price match and they don't have one ;)

    In my opinion, yes. That's why after months of painful searching, I now own one :thumbsup:

    I think you have answered a question I was about to ask. Does this Hitachi seperate DVI and HDMI connections? If so I might get one. Reviews look good too. It seems to be impossible to get an LCD with either 2x HMDI of HDMI + DVI input connections.

    I would definately recommend the Toshiba 32WLT58 (as i have one!) but i would also certainly take a peep at the new Panasonic TX32LXD60 as that seems to be getting some decent feedback on an another thread at the mo.
    If you do decide on the Toshiba, i'd suggest that you take a look at the new range which is due in April - the 32WLT66 which has been well received in this months AV mags.

    I have been checking both the Hitachi 32LD7200 and Panasonic 32LXD60 in these forums and am not sure which is the best (neither are in any shops near me, so I haven't been able to see them with my own eyes).

    The Hitachi reviews seem to all say that contrast is not the best and there is a HUGE thread on the Panny at the moment, which started off with bad reviews but now seems mostly positive, with some people finding the picture excellent.

    What do people think? I have narrowed down to these 2 as I really want a TV with 2xHDMI or DVI+HMDI inputs.

    I'm looking to get an LCD tv too and from everything I've read so far about these two models I think the panny might have the edge with picture, it's also less bulky than the Hitachi which is a factor for me.

    Hello, on the hitachi 7200...

    Yes the HDMI and DVI inputs are separate. So potentially could be used for two digital inputs.

    contrast? Well, all I can say is I have a very natural picture, colours, brightness, etc all look great. Though of course it's difficult to say that without an comparison to other screens.

    Being able to set the picture levels for each input individually is another great feature of the set (although of course it might be standard to all LCDs!)

    I can't complain about the picture, watching Planet Earth, etc, is fantastic. One thing you need to be aware of though is the "glow" that the colour black can suffer from with an LCD, which is why a screen with an adjustable backlight is useful. Mostly you don't notice it, but when there is a lot of black on the screen it does tend to have a glow due to being backlit.

    It's really not something that bothers me or anyone else watching the set.

    I would say it depends on how much you have to spend.

    I would go for the Toshiba 32WLT58 as its great for the price (plus its probably the best selling 32" LCD where I work - not counting Lexsor TVs), not to mention it has a really good picture and spec.

    If you have the cash take a look at Panasonics new TX32LXD60 as its great TV plus a lot of stores are doing a promotion where you buy the TV and get a Panasonic DMRES15 half price which isn't bad either if you want a decent DVD recorder.

    Although if you can hold on maybe what and see what Toshiba's new LCD range has to offer (due out early April).
