Thanks for this rocky and welcome to the forums!

Just to point out this is HDCP capable:
viewsoniceurope.com/UK/…htm

Which is very important as alot of HD content will be over HDCP only in the future and on that DVI port you can use a hdmi to dvi converter, £5 off ebay.

Compared to £260 26" HDTV's im not entirely swung on value, but not bad.

I'm thinking of getting one of these. Anyone got one? Is it ok for a bedroom TV? Thanks.

These tv's are amazing - very good quality - we get very few back.

I look at these all the time and wish I had the brass to buy one.

Worth remembering though peeps, it doesn't have a Freeview adapter - the biggest disappoint in my opinion.

What do you suggest with freeview, I am considering a LCD TV for the kitchen?

it doesn't hav an inbuilt freeview thats right , but you can alwayss add a freeview box through scart connection.And if you need more scart connections,since it has just one socket you can get adapters that converts 1scart into a 5 scart connection.

Well depends whether you can live without it?

If you would like Freeview, without an obtrusive box, you could perhaps get something like the Bush SCART freeview adapter. It's small, just connects to the SCART socket (never!) and hides behind the TV. There is a little sensor on a cable you can stick on the top of the TV for the remote.

It's a great solution for these little TV's without Freeview.

Thanks have seen these but obvisouly adds to the price not wanting to spend more than £200 for kitchen tv.

I have a £40 2nd hand mint condition (gumtree.com) 20" panasonic in our kitchen hooked up to a free mini hifi system (thanks woolworthes), just fits under the fitted cupboards TV Link from living room Sky Box all neatly tacked to skirting board meaning crystal clear tv picture but only clones but can control what is in the living room which is fine by me

I didn't realise it had no DVB-T tuner, big letdown at this price really.

You will be hard pushed to get a decent LCD small screen TV for less than £200 with Freeview at the moment.

I just had a quick scan of the Currys website, and this is the cheapest small screen LCD TV with Freeview: currys.co.uk/mar…633

Our local PriceDrop.TV shop had LCD (15" perhaps?) for just over a £100 at Christmas, but they weren't of the best quality.
If you wanted Freeview, perhaps you should look at the cheaper 15" LCD's then buy a Freeview adapter?

None of them seem too - they seem to start appearing at around the £300+ price range TV's.

It's crazy, all that extra for a digital tuner.

can you give me a link to a 26" HDTV for £260?

I meant £280 i think, which argos had from acoustic solutions.

19" 16:9 = 154square inches viewable
26" 16:9 = 288square inches viewable, 88% increase

19-22" £180-£250+ LCD TV's look like a rip off compared to that

In a way this is true - 26-32" TV's do appear to better value for money than the smaller LCD TV's.

Just to echo what spladam said:

16:9 viewable area's in square inches with % difference to the size above it
I realise some screens are 16:10 so won't be entirely accurate but close.

15" 4:3 108 sq in. (16:9 letterbox: 13.7" 80.4 sq in)
15.4" 101.84 sq in. [26.7% larger than 15" letterbox]
17" 118.4 sq in. [20.6% larger]
19" 149.4 sq in. [26.2% larger]
20" 163.56 sq in. [9.5% larger]
22" 199.68 sq in. [22.1% larger]
24" 207.36 sq in. [21.6% larger]
26" 236.17 sq in. [18.9% larger]
28" 334.28 sq in. [35.5% larger]
30" 383.67 sq in. [14.8% larger]
32" 438.03 sq in. [14.2% larger]
37" 582.82 sq in. [33.1% larger]
40" 684.04 sq in. [17.4% larger]
42" 753.96 sq in. [10.2% larger] [FONT=Arial,Helvetica][SIZE=2][COLOR=Black][29.4% larger vs. 37"][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
50" 1068.2 sq in. [41.4% larger]
60" 1537.62 sq in. [43.9% larger]

Just to let you know, you can get this a little bit cheaper by searching for the model Viewsonic N1900W 19" on Google. You'll then get a Dixons link with a code for £30 off. But you will have to pay £9.99 for postage.
