Tv recommendation


Established Member
Hi, I'm looking for a new tv to be used only for gaming (Xbox 360)
I sit approximately 4.5-5ft away from the screen and currently have a 26" Samsung LCD.
Was originally looking for a 42" plasma but due to my viewing restriction thinking 32" is probably my absolute max.
Could anybody recommend the best TV I could get for my gaming needs with a budget of £350?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

There aren't any 2011 32" LCDs that seem to stand out for gaming that are in your budget

Panasonics have a good rep for low lag and good viewing angles

Thanks for response

I went for the Samsung UE32D5250 in the end. £379 in PC World.
Was originally going for the D5000 but was out of stock in comet for £349.99 and in stock at PC World for £399.99

Very very happy with it.

Yes it's unpacked and mounted on the wall. I'm very pleased with it.

Noticeable size difference from the 26", I'm glad I didn't go for a 42" plasma now as I think it would of looked really out of place.
