The Samsung range have been getting fantastic reviews for image quality, but I think you will regret purchasing a 23". If you can afford an extra £60 or so, the Smasung LE26R74BD is a 26" telly to die for....Cheapest I seen it so far was Dixons, but run it through Kelkoo or pricerunner or somesuch.

Agree with Bennyhillslovechild,

The Samsung units are excellent, try currys or pc world but use the collect at store option to get the online price in store, the 23" Samsung is £396, as opposed to £549 'shopfloor' price.

Personally would go with a 26" but this may be outside your original budget. (although the 23" is available in white which would go with the 360 quite nicely!!!)

I find Richer Sounds are very good price-wise if you have one near you and, they'll price match aswell.

I bought a Sony 26" BRAVIA (26U2000) and am currently using it as a monitor for my PC through standard analogue connection; the detail in games is awesome.

Samsung have always been leaders in flat panels, I remember years ago when the TFT monitors came out the Samsung's were the one's to have. And with Sony you'd only ever expect the best. Now Samsung & Sony have a new joint factory to produce their LCD screens. I would recommend either, Samsung's may be slightly cheaper than Sony's but the screen itself is likely to be the same so the price diffrence is going to be mainly packaging, features and brand name.

You should be able to find a 32in for your price.

See, for instance:

Like your Argos Wharfedale link, a rebadged product.

Tesco has some in around the same price, notably a Techsonic with what proved an excellent display when I was last looking at the lineup on show.

The Dabs model is currently on offer at £349.99.
