    Don't wanna spend loads of money on a tv, so what is the done thing...either:

    1. Get a decent TV £1000+ and upgrade the sound system later.

    or

    2. Get a cheaper TV, eg. Philips 32PW6006 for £571 and spend the rest on hi fi kit/amp etc.

    Thought I decided on the Tosh picture frame but now like the Panasonic looks cool!

    a 14" TV is looking tempting at the moment!

    Cheers

    Beavis.

    Personally, I´d get a decent Stereo Widescreen tv and spend the rest on the AV kit rather than get a TV with Dolby Digital etc.

    The sound quality will be better via amps/receivers and a decent speaker package than thru the TV and its speakers.

    Me, too. I'd spend as little as possible on a TV right now.

    Because, my guess is that, within, say, 3 years, flat panel devices (LCD and/or Plasma) will become MUCH more affordable and so the desire to upgrade the TV seems more likely to happen before the other components.

    In other words, I'd view a TV bought today as being nothing more than a stop-gap activity until flat panels become available at reasonable (by which I mean 25-50% more than regular TVs) prices.
