Tv needed for 91 year old-I would really appreciate some advice........

    My grandad is 91 and has just moved out of the house that he has lived in for over 60 years into a sheltered housing flat.He has decided that he would like a shiny new tv to watch his collection of war films and various old movies.His budget is £500 but obviously I would like to spend less if at all possible.
    It would be great if I could find him something with a good picture and sound-32 to 37 inch screen that could be viewed from fairly close by as his new sitting room is quite small.
    I am also aware that whoever it is purchased from must have a good after care reputation as any possible problems would have to be handled sensitively by the company
    A lot to ask for I know so I am just hoping that there is somebody out there who knows their onions and can help.I am worse than useless-I have a large panasonic viera which I am very happy with but this is out of his price range so I am stumped!!!
    Any help would be hugely appreciated-ta!!


    There used to be places where you could rent tv's...maybe that could be an option instesd of shelling out a lump sum and any problems they just replace the tv

    Aren't you lovely! I find the way to get the best aftercare is to go small and local. If you have someone like this they'll probably come and set everything up too, better than a 17 year old spotty idiot in one of the big chains. As for TVs, we've got a couple of Samsung LCDs and you can get these under your budget for 37", crystal clear picture and good sound for us so well worth a shot.

    At least twenty years old but still works. Remote available.
