    have a list, at lower sizes you'll notice less difference in quality so heres my list of a couple

    LG 22LG3000 - LG 22LG3000 - 22 Inch HD Ready TVs - Electrical Experience > or the 26" for a little more LG 26LG3000 - 26 Inch HD Ready TVs - Electrical Experience >

    Or you could push the boat out a bit and get this for just a little over £300 - Panasonic 26LXD80, its a good TV PANASONIC TX-26LXD80 Panasonic TX-26LXD80 with built in digital tuner to view all Freeview channels also features 1366x768 pixel resolution and 8000:1 contrast ratio. from Laskys Panasonic

    or a samsung Samsung LE26A456C 26" LCD TV - Cheap Samsung LCD TVs, Plasma TVs, HD Ready TVs

    Personally I'd go for the 26" LG or the 22" if you want to spend less, good motion handling, the Samsung has some motion smear apparently and the Panasonic is more than you wanted to spend

    Will you be viewing the panel directly, or angled?

    its going to sit in the corner of the kitchen, so I'd like an arm bracket so it looks like it sits in the corner (if that makes sense!) so the answer is probably angled :D

    Look for one with a wide viewing angle then, I would say plasma but the smallest plasma is 32" so thats not really an option, thats surely too big for a kichen, plus its £360.

    Wide viewing angle is fairly important which makes the 26" LG stand out above the others. I have seen wall mounts for the samsung, im not sure about your arm idea though, it sounds good but im not surehow you'd do it

    Actually, the LG has very low viewing angle (especially vertical) due to the panel mode (TN)

    The OP needs a set with IPS, but it doesn't exist anymore. So the second best choice is VA

    Sony KDL-26V4000
    Samsung LE26A456/LE26A457


    PS: You should also consider the Sharp 19" with VA panel

    I think the LG referred above was for a Plasma 32". Plasmas have wider viewing angle.

    I didnt make a typo, at the time i thought that it did but after looking into it a bit further i see that it doesnt, I'd go for the Samsung I mentioned earlier, decent enough viewing angle and it's deffinitely wall mountable, the Sony looks to be quite far out of the OPs price range.

    The Sharp looks good too though

    Hi,
    If your still in need of a bracket,Ikea do the "Observator" wall bracket for a tenner and it will support your set and allow lateral and vertical movement.
    Ive got 3 of them up around the house.Highly recommended.
