Need advise on purchasing a 26" HD LCD TV (I'm not very techie)

As the title states, I'm not very technical and have absolutely no idea what all the numbers mean when tv's are being advertised!!
I have been looking for a tv for out sitting room. It's not a large room so only want a 26" max.
I have found what looks like 2 good tv's with ebuyer (links in next post) which look pretty good and have reasonable reviews, but would love to have a second opinion.

Thanks in advance!

I'd go for the Sense TV, same technical specs but 2 HDMI ports which should become the normal connection soon :)

Between those two go for the Sense 26".
They are almost identical even in size, the only difference is that the Sense TV has more connectivity options; 2 SCART and 2 HDMI sockets opposed to the Vistron model that only has one of each.

Depends whether you want a quality name brand tv or not. I have had experience in the Vistrons and tbh they are not bad tvs. The surround is a little bit plasticy and not brilliant but picture quality is pretty good with good viewing angles. I would doubt the length of time before something does go wrong though, but hey this can be said about any electronical item be it Vistron or Sony etc.

If however you are not on a budget then there are plenty of branded 26"ers on the market for roughly £100 more BUT they will last longer and be of higher quality. Dont be put off by the boo boys saying 'yeah but you could get a 32" for that price' - what they dont seem to even understand is that 26" is a niche market and so will be more expensive pound for inch.

If you want what i think is the best quality for pound 26" on the market atm id go for something like a Sony S3000 from Richer Sounds and pay another £30 for the 5 year warranty. Or if your near a John Lewis and a Richer Sounds get JL to pricematch RS and get a free 5 year warranty anyway ;-)

Just my 2 cents worth... im sure most will DISAGREE lol... but hey who am i to argue, im only on my 3rd 26" now - 1x Panasonic 2x Sony ;-)

Oh and PS... out of those 2 definately go for the Sense - you know it makes sense !

Thanks for the quick replys:thumbsup:
I thought the Sense one sounded a bit better but I didn't know why:roll:

Also, thanks for the advise squelds, I'm not really into named brands, I just try to get the best I can. Are the named brands really that much better?:?


Off to rep you all!

Well IF i had the extra £100 burning a hole in my pocket i know which one id go for. For me reliability, quality and longevity are worth paying that little bit extra for. But hey thats just me... the Sense/Vistrons/AOC lcds etc are all very good value for money.
