What 20-23" LCD?

Hi

I'm after an LCD screen of around 20-23" for my bedroom. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of reviews about, so I wondered if anyone had any first hand opinions of the following:

JVC 23E31
Philips 23pf9945
Panasonic tx22lt3
Sony klv23hr2

All of these are around £1000-£1200. I prefer the look of the JVC but at at the end of the day all i'm interested in is the picture.

What should I get / definately not get?!!!

Thanks for any help

I had a look at the JVC and Philips in John Lewis with a dvd via scart - I assume they were switched to RGB but didn't have time to play about and check. In my opinion the JVC looked much clearer and better even though the dvd player sending the signals was cheaper - the Philips had a Philips 963SA connected...

Both had the sound switched off but I didn't bother checking sound as I have a surround system.

The JVC is now the favourite for me at the moment although I'd like it to drop below a grand first. This should happen with the release of new LCD models around Easter.

I would be interested in the Thomson 27" if it falls to the same price as the JVC just for shear size.

Consider also the Samsung LW22A13. See one in John Lewis.

Just purchased a sony KLV23HR2 today from Costco. It was slightly dearer than online retailers, but it has 3 year warranty and no quible refund policy.

The picture is not too bad exept the screen is quite bright, even with all the settings turned down (even the backlight and powersave setting selected) when the tv is switched off, the screen is a nice shade of black. I was under the impression that the blacks are the same as the screen colour. when switched on the blacks seem to be a shade of dark blue.

I dont know if it is a faulty unit or just yhe way Lcd's are. Either way it will be going back.

As they are BACK lit its a bit different with light on. Costco had the JVC 26" and it is worth every penny! DVD is stunning and Sky is very good!
