    Not really thinking about replacing my CRT RP, as overall it's very good for the dosh.

    However I do like the idea of a screen-only display.


    The higher resolution, no possibility of screenburn, lower power consumption, longer lifespan & higher reliability of LCD panels over Plasma seems favourable.


    So how much would a 42" Widescreen LCD screen cost? Are there any out? And what resolution are they?


    Thanks

    Hi Nathan,

    I think the biggest LCD at the moment is 40" - available from Samsung. 52" and 54" models have been demonstrated at CES.

    Ta. Any prices? Or is it "If you have to ask, you can't afford it"? :p

    I would need S-Video (MC-1 OSD), Component (pure R1 DVD), VGA input (Laptop), 2 x SCART- preferbly both RGB; Freeview & possibly another DVD player (R2/multiregion)

    I guess DVI would be good, although not for HTPC- perhaps in the future new HD-DVD players will have this?

    I've been hearing nothing but good things on the NEC 40". 1280x768, 600:1 contrast, DVI, 170 degree H&V viewing angle, loads of inputs but no scart £4300. Gonna get a demo when our suppliers pull their thumbs out...
