Im looking to replace my fathers old CRT set with a flat screen but my budget is a little tight being so close to xmas. I've found these two with both getting reasonably good reviews but im stuck on with one would give the better picture.
Or if anyone could recommend a better alternative, that would be great.

Or would i be better off getting a 32" for about the same price?

What kind of budget have you got?
#3
Thanks Claire, seen that earlier but thinking a bigger screen but not sure of picture quality on biger budget screens.
I have about £200 but could go up a few quid...
#4
Personally I'd stick to a well known brand (even though it's possible to pick fault with all brands!)

I would be looking at something like Here if that's not too much

Also, LG get some stick, but the spec of their tv's are really good - never had an issue with mine

*but if I had the choice from the 2 you mentioned I'd go for the finlux

So I'm guessing neither of the two Tvs that i suggested are any good then (thought i posted links but they dont work as not highlighted) as so far nobody has said which would be better but Claire did suggest a smaller version of the Finlux.
Thats a little to much tomtom but thanks (:

Apparently the asda brand Polaroid tvs are verry good for the money
Eg...http://www.whathifi.com/polaroid/3-32-led-14/review
They only seem to have a 40" one online for £249 but they sell a 32" instore not sure of the price tho

I edited my response afterwards, as recommending other tv's wasn't really helping to answer your question..

I used to work in a tv shop a good 20yrs ago, and they used Finlandia (which unless I'm mistaken was a rebranded finlux). They've been around for years, and for the money aren't the worst thing you can buy.. Not sure on the long term reliability, but in honesty you can say that about Samsung too

It doesn't really matter who makes the television as theres only a few manufactures of flat screens in the world its a case of buying the best you can afford

So would you reccommend the Finlux or Seiki??

Have you read the reviews for the Finlux ? there are 144 mostly positive, as opposed to zero reviews for the other.
The finlux also has a PVR so you can record from the single tuner, I have a 500GB hard drive attached to mine and its great. On my third year with a cheapo TV from currys (not finlux) and could'nt be happier. Read the reviews on the site for it then get one, I know I would.

I use a 500gb portable Toshiba HD from tesco cost £22, you will need to reformat it to fat32 file system.
