Tv - ~32" - ~£500

My nephews and niece are moving into a house together in a few weeks, and I`m toying with letting them have my 28" widescreen.

So of course I`m gonna have a hole where it once stood...
  • Widescreen
  • lcd
  • 28-32" (no stretched 24-26"s being forced to be this size tho)
  • svhs, av, scart most important - vga/equiv. would be nice (preferably not on the front)
  • toying with HD, cept Sky`s so crap HD as an extra subscription seems silly, but pc into it would probably convince me
  • Stereo will be fine as I got a cinema setup anyway
  • preferably black
  • £400-£500, over that wouldn`t be worth it

Any links provided would be appreciated to aide the window shopping

Product specs here Its a nice picture and im running my media centre on, enough connections to shake a big angry stick at and it makes a cool diddly dee noise when u turn off or on. Worth it in itself!

Yeah, I was doing a Scan browse the other day, some nice looking ones in there around 32".

26" is a tad too small for me m8y, I`m looking for 28-32".

I personally wouldn't get a Hyundai. The SCAN TV looks damn good for the cash

With monitors you do get what you pay for, if you want that E320D ill be able to beat that price on tues

Hmm well SCAN don't seem to be offering their own TV as they were before, which got a load of good reviews. I wouldn't recommend Hyundai as I've had 1st-hand experience of their products and imo it's worth spending he extra and getting a trusted make such as Samsung, LG or Sony - especially with an investent like a 32" TV

Don't get something you'll be be staring at for such a long time that you think to yourself: "I should have paid that little bit more"

Me: I'd get a Samsung or a Sony

That one looks really nice, it`s over £500 @ Scan.

Kemp can u give me a linky I`m duffed if I can see it. Might be looking too hard lol EDIT: no wonder I couldn`t find it lol

I think if I didn`t set myself a cash boundry, that one nathan`s post looks kewl too.

I`m glad theres such a good bunch of choices for the price range. Atleast I know where I stand now, I can chat with my nephew about vacating the TV space with all this in mind

EDIT: I think I get the point on spending the extra, I think it`ll be a case of weighing the odds up just before hitting the sale button.
