26" TV 1080p HD

I'm looking for one of these to replace a CRT in the conservatory. I can't seem to find one.

With a 26" screen you may have difficulty finding a 1080 set. Plasma can't be made full hd in that small a screen and because you won't really see any improvement in the picture at that size you'll find most makers use 768 pixels for lcd

Perfect, thanks. 961, noted, thanks for that.

Normally I'd recommend Panasonic without fail, but this Sharp might prove of interest at the price (£270):

It was only launched in the middle of October.

The sharp is not 1080p like what was asked for.

I'm perfectly aware of that fact but, as has already been made clear, a 26in model with the feature will probably be as rare as hen's teeth.

Such technology is somewhat wasted with a small screen LCD model (my 26in LCD TV's picture height is about a centimetre more than the 21in CRT model it replaced).

The real benefits of high definition really only become apparent when viewing much larger screen size sets.

The question is really would it be worth paying the difference in cost for the model to which MAT ALAN provided his link?

As someone who views a wide range of LCD and plasma screen sizes TVs over the course of the week I would say No.

full hd at small screen sizes really does make a difference,

but then mine is a laptop screen and thus gets used alot, a TV?

maybe not worth it

I was not disagreeing with the fact that on smaller screen there is not a massive difference between 720p and 1080p but the op stated "26" TV 1080p HD", there are loads of 26" 720p tvs out there but the op asked if we know of any 1080p ones so really not much point posting one that isnt

You've missed the point again - the price for the Sharp is particularly keen and, as has been made clear, it's not really worth looking for 1080p HD on a small screen (unless you sit with your nose virtually up to the set!)
