Samsung make excellent flat screen sets, but also have a look at Toshiba and Panasonic; in addition there are a number of offers around for the Sony Bravia sets.

Hi Stuartli I have had a look around although it is difficult to choose as they are so many. The Samsung attracted me as it has a 5000:1 contrast ratio and a good price. As this is my first foray into LCD television and I have only just persuaded my father this is the way to go I don't want to end up with a screen with a worse picture than out old 26" CRT, also as I am going halves with the aged parent he baulks at paying too much so round about £600 is the limit, although if I see a must have then I will stump up the extra.

Very nice but I forgot to say we are ideally looking for a 32" but thanks for the link.

I've just been through the same process and given the constant improvements and price drops, didn't want an expensive piece of obsolete kit three months after buying. I've just bought this one after reading some great reviews and seeing it in the flesh in an Evesham shop. Because I already have Sky+, I went for the basic model with analogue tuner. 32in LCD for under £500 and three year swap out warranty, if you see a better bargain I'll be mightily impressed!click here

So Simple. Thanks for the link looks really good and the reviews for all the Sets are positive I think I will be choosing one of these :-)
