    Hi.
    I'm looking for a 28" W/S TV to replace my standard bush 28" who's tube died 3 months out of warranty! :mad: Needs to be reliable, would prefer it to last a little longer than 27 months this time. Has to be 28" due to space. No cabinet required. £400 is absolute maximum and would prefer a little cheaper if possible, about the only thing I know I want is flat screen, I have 5.1 system and sky so sound and digital not important, all opinions gratefully received.

    Thanks. :)

    As I already have a surround system, will this not be overkill, having had
    a look this has 3d cinema sound built in??

    Am I right in thinking that John Lewis price match to any other
    retailer (online or high street) so it's not relevant what they are
    charging but how cheap I can find it elsewhere?

    I don't have this set myself but I know very well the outstanding picture quality of Sony's 28" IDTVs and Which? magazine's most recent reliability survey put Sony in the top catagory for TV makers . :thumbsup:
    Try Pricerunner.com for the latest prices but I've seen £389 today.

    dont worry about JVC 3d sound, its not 5.1 or anything, set is very good PQ and good connectivity!

    Not Web Dealers (unless you get lucky!).

    Don't forget the 5 year guarantee when comparing prices.

    Let us know how you get on.
