Which 32" LCD TV?

OK, my current 33" CRT is great, but always takes 10-15 minutes to 'warm up' before displaying a picture. Weird I know. So I have been searching around the net for the last 2 days and have found a few LCD TV's that look good, but I do not know alot about HD. I will be using my SD Freeview Recorder, PS2 and Wii on it. I have found:

Samsung LE32A456C - £384.99



Sharp LC32D44EBK - £372.28


Samsung LE32A436T1DXXU - £368.98



Hitachi 32LD8D20 - £369


TOSHIBA 32AV505D - £354.99



Acoustic Solutions LCD32761HDF - £349.99


LG 32LG3000 - £349.95

Vistron DB32-S - £280



Dabs Value/Digimate LTV-3212H - £249


I was aiming to spend around £350, but will go up to £400 max inc delivery. Any opinions on any of the above TV's would be great, or any TV's that I have missed off. Thanks.

Forget about 1080/720 for a moment, what interests me in these HD tv is the native resolutions for them in terms of when a pc is connected to them. Some take 720 and do 1080, but they native to 1368x768.

Names alone, Samsung/Toshiba/LG all I know make great screens, but obviously models vary even within manufacturers.

Quite supprized at the £350 tags. Would need to look further into the specs to really advise.

What connections do u need ? Do u need sound ? or hdmi ?

At the moment, I don't need HDMI. Yorkshire won't be getting Freeview HD until 2011 and I won't be getting a PS3 or Xbox 360 in the near future. So just a couple of scarts will do me, but I would want at least 1 HMDI for the future.

I just want a TV that will turn on in the morning so I can watch it while eating breakfast, or as soon as I home in from work. Thats why I don't want to spend £700 on a TV.

I little, didn't like the idea of having to pay for installation, and then I would have to get a box that will record, as I can now not live without my SD freeview recorder.

go to richer sounds and ask to see the tv, sd can sometimes be a bit strained on a HD lcd.

Go for one of the big boys. I've got a Samsung 87DBX and it's fantastic. I've also got a 37" Tosh which does the trick. LG aint slouches either. If you can see em in action then all the better

I'd get the Regza in that list at that price... Quality TV! My mate bought it for a little more than that but it's knocking on the door of the much more expensive models and a lot cheaper price.

Seriously good TV.
