Which 22" - 27" can do all this??


Standard Member
Hi, I've literally spent the last 4 hours searching this and other sites for a decent LCD TV.
I've just got rid of my Samsung SM225MW and am looking to upgrade.

Basically, I want between 22" - 27" LCD.
With HDMI input for ps3.
To run at 1080.
BUT! Once that can output the sound from the HDMI to a 5.1 surround set that uses the 3 wires; sub front and rear.
I may sacrifice the 5.1 option if the tv has decent onboard speakers.

I've seen a decent-ish dell that does it here:
MCS Technology Ltd > 27" Dell UltraSharp 2709W Widescreen LCD (Black). 30 Day Warranty
But heard bad reviews stating major "input lag" which I guess will affect me when I play COD on PS3.

Any help or links etc greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Joe.

just got an email saying someone's replied, but cant see it on here :S

Anyway, the person said:

let me know if Ive got this wrong , but ...

You are looking for a 1080p TV less than thirty inch that takes in sound over HDMI and gives you 5.1 analog outs ?

Dont waste any more time looking as such a thing does not exist !

It does exist, as the Dell I mentioned in my previous post allows this. I was just looking for alternative TV's/

Dunno really, just thought I might as well aim for the best. Gonna be running a PS3 through it so want a good quality.

Suppose I could do without the 5.1 output, but it's a real deal swayer.
