Right, I've been meaning to get a new HD TV and speaker system to go with my PS3 and now I believe the time is nigh to buy one. :-D I'd like some feedback on my choices from those who are also on the market for said items or have already made the´plung as my budget is around £1,200.
The TV I'm going for is a Sony Bravia KDL-40V2500 at £949.99 at my local Sony store with 5 years warranty (parts and labour I believe) and a free DVD recorder. Plus they're doing a 9-month interest free option as well so I figured it's a pretty solid deal especially since a 5-year warranty is thrown in. It's a slightly older model since I've seen the exact same model number with full HD but this only does 1080i and below. http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-and-plasma/sony-kdl-40v2500-40/4505-6482_7-31901243.html
Here's a review just in case .
For my speaker system I'm going for a TV stand/speaker system as I'm going to need a stand anyway and this kinda kills two birds with one stone. The stand is a http://www.evesham.com/products/info.asp?e=D53E68A3-D093-4E89-B7EF-BB6DD5AD4CB1
Evesham Sound Stage X1
and goes for £300. It's got nine(!!) built-in speakers for virtual surround sound and is neat and tidy with no wires for the speakers!
Overall what do you guys think? My budget is just only stretched due to the speaker system but with the nine-month interest free option I figured I can take a hit at the price. Any other TVs / speakers / tv-stands you guys can think of with similar specs (re: the TV) and price?
