any bargains out there - or any really fab TVs you know about.
Our normal TV has died and needs replacing.

LCD are good but DO NOT get an LCD Rear Projection. We bought an all-singing all danving Sony one, without realising that the bulbs in them blow with alarming regularity (had ours less than 2 years and had 3 replacements), they cost an enormous £370 each to buy . They are considered a 'consumable' so are not covered by warranties

LCD is better quality but still much more expensive, at least for a large one.

We have a big Sony Plasma screen which is great. The picture is excellent quality. It is also incredibly thin - there is little depth to it at all. It's DH's pride and joy

best quality 'normal' TV around at the moment

BIL loves his to bits. The picture quality is far superior to LCD and better than smaller screen plasmas.

have a look on pricerunner or kelkoo - Sony plasma 42" TV for under £2K - we've had one for a couple of years and paid more than that!

we ended up getting a hitachi 42" plasma for £899 plus vat. But what I didn't realise was that it is a plasma SCREEN not a TV. which is ok as we have a sky box - but I just assumed it'd be a TV as well.
But the blooming thing is HUGE!
