What Full HD LCD for £650/£700?

Found 2nd Mar 2009
Hi all. We are wanting to get a 40/42" full hd lcd tv but have not got a clue what to go for. We like the look of the samsung's and sony but wondering what you recommend for a max of £650/£700
Would like a 100hz if possible but not a must have

Anyone?? Am going to get a new TV this weekend so please list your recommendations here

If you are very lucky, you can occasionally find the Samsung A686 40" for £700 or thereabouts. The A656 is the same panel, only not quite as slim - the bezel is a little larger.

These are 1080p, 100Hz, 24p, 4 HDMI, 50000:1 contrast (crazy numbers of course, but the blacks are superb). I have the A686 and love it to pieces and got it for just over £700 from Richer Sounds with a price match.

Lisa, what did you end up going for? I tried to get the Samsung 40LEA656 which was on offer from EBuyer, but was too slow. It looks really nice in the pictures, and the reviews are good. I am hoping to spend about the same as you, so would be interested in what you plumped for, and whether you are happy with it.
