    Hi all,

    My parents are about to order a new LCD TV and have their eye on one of the following, both are available for around the £1000 mark.

    Phillips 32PF5520

    Panasonic TX32LXD50

    I am struggling to find any reviews on either of these sets.

    Can anyone give me some opinions on them?

    HD input is not an issue and most viewing will be via a freeview box.

    Thanks.

    Can I offer this as a slightly more expensive alternative.
    Never been a fan of Philips stuff - quality or reliability. Panasonic certainly has a very good rep, but again, not been overly impressed by their offerings.
    That said, the one linked to above's previous generation model certainly did impress me, and this should do so even more when I get to see one in the flesh.
    So, if that's not an option, look for the LT-32D50BJ - £1152 odd, is the best via www.pricerunner.co.uk

    Thanks for the replies folks - the JVC is too expensive, The budget must be around £1000.

    I will have a look for a Sharp, see what sort of money they go for.

    i got the 26" version of the philips and i must say i am most impressed with picture, design and it comes with a built in freeview tuner. It is also fully hd ready. Good buy.
