looking for a TV

Hey guys, im looking for a decent LCD for around £300, cant really go over that amount tbh as its a gift for the mrs...

Soooooo...

Anyone got any ideas? Needs to be around 32 inches, as any smaller will be pointless...

Cheers guys...

On a budget you could go for either of these as they have Samsung panels in them.

Obviously not the highest quality, but Samsung none the less.

This one is cheaper, has about a billion reviews and has freeview built in:

Whereas this one is a little dearer, not quite as many reviews, no freeview, but has a lil faster response time (6.5ms compared to 8ms). Also has a Headphone socket and an AV socket which the other one doesn't.

Yeah man do... Let us know what the quality is like too.

I bought a cheapo TV and got very lucky with the quality of the panel and picture but my mate bought one the same size, a little more expensive and a different brand with slightly better specs but it wasn't very good at all.. Quite fuzzy. Looked like the pixels were moving around all the time.

Bit of a lottery.
