    Hi people, I am new to AV Forums but am looking for a value for money LCD TV (large family, small budget). Would appreciate any advice - have seen a Crown CTT3207W 32" LCD in Woolies @ £599 not much info on spec. but have seen same model elsewhere with spec advertised as:- Res:1366x768, contrast ratio typically 1000:1, brightness 450cd/m² and response time of 8msec; but Crown who?
    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks biggy7, now I'm even more confused! A mixture of good and bad reviews, it seems to have a decent spec. at an affordable price, but how reliable is it and what about the aftersales service! We only want to watch TV & DVD's, a PC connection is not a necessity. Will have to think on this one. Does anybody know of a decent 32" LCD TV at a similar price to the Crown at Woolies? At least that would offer some choice given the budget.
    Thanks in advance.

    If you can stretch the budget by a couple of hundred pounds more then you could consider the Samsung LE32R41B. There is also a model with built in Freeview for a little bit more, the LE32R41BD. The Samsung has been getting a lot of great reviews in magazines as well as by people who own them and is probably much better then the Crown. If you're on a tight budget it's a good value for money TV with great quality.

    Samsung. At that end of the price scale the Samsungs are probaably the best bet. I was on a very tight budget too and opted for the 26" Samsung ( LE26R41BD ) and i'm more then happy with it.
