Having been stiffed earlier this year by a 15:9 Sharp I bought a Panasonic plasma for my main use. I had been using a 15 inch LG LCD for the back room as a TV & PC moitor. As I sit in an armchair with wifi mouse & KB it was way too small. Saw the Toshiba for £1499 (Bargain!) & thought I'll have one of those & bought it untested!!! Well, it's a stonking TV & a superb Monitor too. You can turn down the backlight to enhance contrast etc & it's proper 16:9 at 1360x768 pixels! It comes with a neat stand & has more than anough connections to play with! The contrast level is much better than the Sharp I had & whist nowhere near as good as my Panny plasma it's good enough for DVD at night etc! For the money I'm well chuffed!
