I very much doubt you will find anything below 32" thats 1080i - they will all be 720p. Most people agree that you can't tell the difference between the two resolutions on screens below 37".

I've yet to see a screen that supports 720p and not 1080i, you must be getting confused with 1080p, which, as you noted, isn't really worthwhile on smaller screens.

OP: What is your budget? And what do you intend to use the TV for (ie freeview, Xbox 360, Wii, PC etc). I was in the market for something of a similar size a few months ago, although I actually ended up getting a 37" Samsung (courtesy of a deal on here of course!).

Basically, i have about £250. This TV will be hooked upto the xbox 360, A HD-DVD player in the not so far future perhaps a Sky box also. I have been looking around for a while now.. i am happy to settle for a larger screen if its a good deal!

Thanks for getting back to me 03bintls+jbarnett

P.s i get suckered in a lot too... got the Asus eee today..arg!

With 22" screens and less, a lot of them are closer to PC displays rather than TVs. Obviously they still have a TV tuner and the corresponding inputs, but the resolution and aspect ratio are usually those used in monitors rather than TVs.

For example, I was looking at this set. It has an aspect ratio of 16:10, rather than 16:9 as used in typical TVs, but the resolution is much higher than a 720p set, in fact it's very close to 1080p. The problem is that either the image will have to be stretched vertically, have the sides cropped, or have black bands at the top and bottom (for a 720p source). So it's a compromise really. For that price range, the alternative is to go for a larger TV, but a cheaper brand, like this, which is the 'proper' HD Ready resolution and aspect ratio.

Personally, I think the Samsung will be a good set, and that would be my preference.
