    For the same price, you can pick up the L37V01 Full HD (1920x1080) Hitachi from Richer Sounds at the mo. The cheapest full HD LCD TV out there, assuming your local shop has any stock left!

    It all depends on what you want the LCD for. If you haven't got any HD sources and not planning to add any for a while, then the Hannspree could be a worthwhile budget investment. It's let down slightly by the lack of a built-in Freeview receiver, but you could always use the money saved from £500 to buy a twin freeview PVR, which would well overcome such a shortfall. The Hannspree has a lot of positive reviews on sites such as eBuyer and this thread from hell on AV forums! The 2 year warranty is a nice bonus also.

    If you're heading into HD land, either with SkyHD, an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray Player, or a gaming console, then it's very tempting to recommend the Hitachi with it's full HD resolution and 1080p processing. However, there is a school of thought that at 37" screen size, the average viewer may detect little difference between full HD and 1366x768 resolution of the Hannspree or the older Hitachi model you mention from Tesco Direct.

    This is one of the reasons why I always recommend that you try to see models in action whenever possible at local shops, preferably looking at both SD and HD sources. Of course, one of the drawbacks of the Hannspree is the lack of High Street stores stocking it, so you may have to depend on the reviews I linked to above. With the Hitachi, you'd have to go to Richer Sounds anyway, so it's worth visiting your local store (ring them up and check it's in stock first, preferably also having it on display!).

    At £500, it's well worth having a look at this model from a major Japanese brand, plus Richer Sounds 5 year warranty for £50 can cheaply add peace of mind! However, if it doesn't blow you away, then the Hanspree + PVR option could work out to be a very good second option.

    32" or 37" TV

    Hi Hazmeister

    Thanks for all your help.

    If I can get one I am going to go for the Hitachi which would probably be the better one for the future and would not have to upgraded in the near future.

    I rang Richer Sounds in Belfast and they have none in stock but said if I keep checking they may have more in.

    I will do this and if they don't get them I will go for the Hanspree which I hope will still be in stock.

    I just want the TV for watching TV and Sky TV and would like a better picture than the Phillips CRT TV that I have at the minute.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Happy New Year to you and your family.

    Jacqui

    No problemo, Happy New Year to you and yours. I'm yet another member who's had Xmas ruined by the dreaded lurgy (pakefield & blythburgh, I feel your pain!), so glad to take my mind off it for a bit.

    Sorry, didn't note you were in NI, makes it a bit more difficult to go to the next nearest Richer Sounds Found an interesting thread on the Hitachi at Avforums, which possibly explains why stock was snapped up yesterday. Hope they do get more in, but I'm sure the Hannspree is a viable alternative for its price and a few other places stock it (Dabs, Ebuyer etc.), so hopefully it won't disappear off the market in the next month!

    Hi Hazmeister,

    Just wanted to let you know that I telephoned Richer Sounds this morning and they said they would not have anymore of these televisions until at least the 2nd January 2008.

    Apparently the warehouse is closed and they will not know how many they will get until then.

    Will keep you posted.

    Have a nice weekend.

    Jacqui
