http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/product.do?sku=384402 was a "best buy" in this months which magazine http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif

it came 4th behind:

Panasonic Viera TX-32LXD700
Panasonic Viera TX-32LXD7
Sony Bravia KDL-32D3000



Here is some more information that might be of help (especially the "24fps" section).

Logos and labels
HD-ready

'HD ready' is a labelling scheme introduced by the TV manufacturers' organisation, the European Industry Association for Information Systems (EICTA).

The label means the TV has the minimum screen resolution of at least 720 horizontal lines and digital sockets (HDMI or DVI) to receive and display a 720p or 1080i HD picture.

A third standard called 1080p boasts marginally sharper pictures. But there are no 1080p broadcasts and it's only available via high definition DVD formats.

HD-ready 1080p

This new official logo from EICTA (the same people behind HD-ready ) means the TV has a high screen resolution of 1080 horizontal lines (1920x1080), can process a 1080p HD signal and refresh the screen at 24 frames per second - meaning it will work properly with high definition DVDs.

Similar sounding and looking logos such as, HD Full, 1080HD or 1080HD-ready are also commonplace. Crucially these labels do not guarantee high definition DVD compatibility and exact meanings can differ between manufacturers. So be careful and look for the exact match.


24 frames per second should eliminate picture judder

24fps

In the absence of the official HD-ready 1080p logo, check for labels like this. It isn't an offical EICTA standard but does mean the TV should process a 1080p signal and screen high definition DVD without the juddering images.

Some TVs on the market (including most of the Panasonic LCD Best Buys) claim to be neither HD-ready 1080p nor sport logos like 24fps but actually still work rather well with high-definition DVD, thanks to their superior digital processing software. We're currently carrying out additional lab tests on older HD-ready TVs to see which are suitable for use with high-definition DVD players.

Digital tick, Freeview or DVB


The digital tick logo

The digital tick is an assurance that the TV will work after the digital switchover. In reality the logo costs manufacturers money, so it’s not widely used. DVB and Freeview logos mean the TV has a digital tuner built-in.

Screen resolution

This is the number of lines or pixels on screen (width x height). But a good TV picture often relies more on decent digital processing software. For instance, most of the Panasonic Best Buys don’t come with the highest screen resolution but they still have the best standard definition pictures.


Digital processing software lies at the heart of modern TVs

Digital processing

Many of the fancy sounding labels refer to the digital-processing software used by the TV. For instance, Philips use Pixel Plus and Panasonic Vreal². Decent processing software usually equals good pictures. For instance, all most new Panasonic TVs feature Vreal² and they all have decent pictures.


The 100Hz logo

100Hz

This is one of the newest logos. It means a TV has digital-processing software, which should make panning and motion sequences marginally smoother.

Colours

When a manufacturer claims a TV can display more colours, it’s unlikely that you’ll actually see more colours on screen. However, it is a sign of faster processing technology and potentially better picture quality.

yeah i had this one in mind either the 37'' or 42''

i dont think i will need latest latest one ie. 1080p?

as reading golf chips info theres no broadcastings for it except HD dvds

do they come with the stand as standard seems like when i search its just the TV? found the 37'' for £860ish (quick search) good price no?

Get the 42" - we thought the 42" would be too big and got the 37" - as soon as we got it home realised the 42" would have been fine! Long story short, we were able to get the 42" - and it's fab!
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]It doesn't come with a stand, pedestal or wall bracket as standard - you can buy it on it's own (e.g. if you already have a wall bracket). I think the cheapest is still Dixons - for the pedestal version, more so for the screen on it's own, however if you want the full fancy stand - it's quite a bit more!!![/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]In my opinion it really is excellent - and although not 'full HD' it will still display a 1080p source (it reprocesses the signal to display it) and it does it very well indeed - transformers on HD DVD is just outstanding!!![/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]I always excused the cost by reasoning that it's probably the one item that will get used everyday, for 1-2 hours minimum - it's not something that is 'on in the background' - you'll be staring right at it! - so It's worth the extra outlay to get the best that you can afford (or just more than you can afford!!!)[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]If you need anything more - just ask![/SIZE]

Stop before you waste your cash ....:-D

Go and buy the following .. Pioneer PDP-428XD.. its the dogs conkers , got everything that you need, freeview, HDMI interface, etc etc and at about £1800 its worth every penny. Interesting spoke to the ever helpfull chappies at Dixons, who stock this bad boy, say wait till after crimbo and it will drop in price..

So dont waste your cash on some old tat .. Pioneer. oh and if your note sure check out the latest issue of What Hi Fi sound and vision.. :santa:
