    I'm popping my forum cherry with this post so I’ll try not to sound too stupid. I'm looking at getting a HD ready LCD around the 40" mark, mainly for DVD's and PS3 with a little free view thrown in as well (sky hd in the distant future maybe).

    I've had a look around and found a Sony Bravia KDL-40W2000 for £880 new. A Bravia would be a preferred choice mainly because someone I know has one (I’m told it's a KDL-40S2030) and I like the way it deals with the picture. I've seen other brands that tend to oversize and cut off quite a bit of the picture. My mates Pioneer (42" I think) does this and it's something I don't like.

    The Bravia looks like it's got a great spec and reviews are good but is there anything I should know? Is £880 a good deal? Is it a bit old now or is there anything out or coming out soon that beats it (similar price range)?

    Avoid the 40W2000.Its old cloudy and in a month the replacement time comes.The new W3000 will be more expensive but also the new V3000 will be better than W2000 too and will cost around 1.000-1.100£

    These are all settings and I'm pretty sure any tv will show you a picture in the format you require.

    Went to my local empire direct and had a look around. First thing I noticed was that the sales staff are useless and only tell you what is on the tv spec sheet, which I can read myself.

    Had a look around and the samsungs looked good. They seemed to have nice strong colours and black blacks if you know what I mean. But then they were next to some rubbish looking screens.

    The models I liked the look of were the LE46M87BDX and LE40M87BDX
    What are these like, any problems?

    Any alternatives anyone can think of would be helpful as well.
    Is it worth waiting a couple of months and then looking again?

    Do a search for the model number and you will find lots of info in those tv's.
