Action-packed and thrusting existence measuring up the TV :poke: making phone calls to a couple of outlets to do a size comparison. As John said (thanks for that JD) 32" sets are about the same size as the old CRT.
Requirements (in no particular order): No wider than 80cm; adept at fast motion; budget £400 or less; must have at least 2 scart inputs; prefer HD tuner, although not essential.
A friend has a Phillips 32" and the clarity and detail is superb. Moreover the remote is one of the best I've seen on a TV; really solid, almost like Creeks. However the fast motion issue is a real let-down.
