    That's all. I understand Toshiba are big in this.

    I may have to get a 32" with 3 scarts (2 RGB) but my next DVD player will have component inputs so I'd prefer it had 2 scarts (1-2 RGB) and component inputs instead. I know they exist but am having trouble finding one.

    Thanks

    ive just got a toshiba 32zp48 to replace my faulty philips9509 and i belive it has got 3 scarts (2 rgb) and component video connections .
    impressions so far are that it is a very nice set and the picture is more natural looking than the philips!!
    cheers

    Thanks, how much?

    Why did you go CRT instead of LCD?

    it cost me 670 including delivery from digital direct but i would seriously recommend getting it from somewhere else !!!
    i was originally looking at a philips lcd but wasnt that impressed by the picture and sound quality!!! lcd has got a long way to go untill it can compete with crt for picture quality ..!

    Thanks. I don't care how good the sound quality is as I'll never be using it but I'll soon see what I think of LCD picture quality.

    The thing is 32" CRTs are so enormous, although I agree CRTs can be gorgeous.

    What's wrong with Digital Direct? When I ordered from them delivery was quick and their pricing is very competitive, often lowest around.

    I think they mean you can buy cheaper from elsewhere. I must admit £670 for a CRT is "fairly" (but not a rip off) expensive.

    If I were to buy a CRT I'd get it from eBay you can but some fantastic CRTs for £400-500 brand new. LCDs are roughly the same price :(

    i originally bought a philips from them last week and it was faulty and they were dragging there heels about me rejecting it and saying i would incure charges etc etc .
    in the end i ended up taking it to them myself and even then they were saying there was nothing wrong with it !!!
    do a search on here about them and you will see what i mean!!
    i wouldnt buy a tv off ebay as digital direct sell there seconds on there apparnently

    Hi, its still shown as a current product on Toshiba's uk web site - worth sending them an email/telephone call to confirm though? Regards, yt.
