    Pretty much decided on either the 32" or 36" version of this great looking Tosh "picture frame" TV, but just a couple of questions:

    I don't want to use the stand that comes with it, is the base reasonably flat so that I could put it on a flat wooden 'stand' that I've got?

    Given that the main criteria for me deciding on this set was its looks and compact (comparatively) size are there any other similar TVs which come close in these respects for the same size screen?

    Michael.

    I managed to purchase mine without the stand from currys as the stand was broken, got £150 off!

    TV works brilliantly, I can't recommend it highly enough!

    get the TOSH!

    The base is perfectly flat

    Thanks for that Alex - looks like Krish deliver outside the UK aswell which is just what I need. I don't need the speakers either (got a 5.1 system already). Wonder what the delivery charges will be on a 75kg behemoth like that!

    BTW, if I'm going to order from the UK, can anyone who has one confirm that the tuner supports PAL/BG aswell as PAL/I ? 99% of TVs do these days but just want to make sure...

    Michael.

    Don't forget the tv is very heavy, and the stand needs to be very strong.

    Also don't forget that the standard stand has a large slug of lead at the back to make the tv stable. Without that lead and without a strap from the rear of the tv to hold it to the stand it could easily topple forward if some one lightly pulls on it, perhaps a child, which would be very dangerous.

    Thanks for that advice Ken - I'll bear that in mind. The stand I have is certainly strong enough to bear the weight of the TV (I've stood on it without problems and I weigh more than the TV :) ) but I hadn't considered the front heavy aspect.

    Michael.
