    This is following on from my thread about my busted CRT

    I've been sent on a search to find the best 37-inch LCD HD-Ready TV.

    Does anyone know what the best one is at the moment? Lucky for me, money isn't really an object so everything is welcome - looking for quality, not value. I've been told it needs to be at least £1000.

    I want something really good - these Phillips ones with Ambilight seem good.

    Thankyou[/i]

    Can't go wrong with Samsung imo

    The prices come down quickly, I paid the same price as that 37 inch for my 32! Well, I guess that was some time ago now actually.

    That looks really good!

    Might i add, this is going in a corner, so it needs to have a compatible stand for the floor - not the wall!

    He had that one linked to in the original post along with two others but they've been removed and "I've been told it needs to be at least £1000." added.

    Out of interest, why does it need to be at least a grand?

    Well you could stick it on at a low height, a friend has a very large LCD on his wall but the ceilings are pretty low so your head is pretty much level when you watch it. Otherwise yeah, staring up at the wall is a bit silly.

    Because then you will get "proper" HD (i.e. not Tesco HD). Ideally you want something made by panasonic, samsumg, sony or any other big name brands. Avoid brand names you can't pronounce

    And one which can do 1080P (i.e. 1920x1080 resolution)

    from extensive reviews i have been lookign at (both professional and normal users)

    the current SONY D3000 seems to be the best but I am only sure its the best 32" out there
    http://www.sony.co.uk/view/ShowProdu...ory=TVP+LCD+TV

    It doesnt do FULL HD though (1080p) if you can - perhaps witt for the newer SONYs that are coming -
    but i think it only comes in at 40"

    The Philips ambilgihts apparently have greta picture but were prone to faults.

    At 37" you could also look at plasmas...

    putting tv's on the wall is silly...i mean you buy an awesome tv so that everyone can look at it and it's nice and big and what not, and then you go and ruin ur experience by having it stuck on a wall so everyone has to tilt their heads up to watch it lol...i mean wtf...
    The centre of the screen should be level with your eyes - so the further back you go the higher you can put it up - but you are right - you shouldnt put it high if you have to move your head up.
