    I'm looking for a new TV for about £200-250, I know it's not much but it's all I can afford at the moment.

    I do a lot of video gaming (PS2 and Xbox mainly) but not much else (except watch a few DVDs on my PS2) so it would need a couple of scart/AV sockets and I'd like to be able to play in 16:9 and 60Hz.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't really know anything about TVs but I'm sick of my crappy 14" TV/Video combi, what can you get for this type of money now days?

    If you can do without all the usual picture processing and don't mind a curved screen, then there are several 28" widescreen sets in your price range.

    I recently bought my son a Goodmans with 5 yr guarantee for less than £200.

    Of course, you get what you pay for...

    Hi all. :)

    j4y3m, whereabout are you?
    I might be selling my 4 year old (serviced 3 months ago) Hitachi C32WD2TN, a 50hz 32" widescreen tv, but it would have to be collected (could also give a demo).

    I'm looking for £325. ;)

    I'm in Scotland.

    I think I'm going to go for the Thomson though, thanks for the help. :)

    Did you go for the Thomson in the end? Any good?

    The one in Comet for £299 is a 28WH101 and I cant find any info on how it differs to the 28WH201? Any one any ideas?
