Handspree offer excellent LCD sets, although it is better known in the UK at present for monitors at keen prices.
But don't forget to check that any model you may be interested in has both an analogue and digital tuner - quite a number of low price LCD models don't have a digital (i.e. Freeview) tuner which is part of the reason, of course, why they are being sold cheaply.
The vast bulk of computer components are manufactured in China, Taiwan etc.
Very few new LCD or plasma sets now come without an HDMI socket.
The point about acquiring an integrated digital TV (i.e. Freeview), is because most people don't particularly want to have extra visible wiring going to a television set from a Freeview set top box; even more relevant if the set is hung on a wall.
