The 32-26 argument is valid, but if you do want 26, as I did for the bedroom, UMC do a 26 with built in DVD for under Â£300 in currys. its a nice TV and saves on wires and mess of a seperate DVD player.
We have a Toshiba 26″ and the picture is excellent. However, the digital reception (freeview) is not as good as our old Sony CRT (off the same ariel and signal amplifier in the loft). The sound breaks up quite often and stations like Dave are intermittent whereas there’s no problem downstairs on the old Sony.
For that reason our next tele will be a Sony but I guess it’s less of an issue if you live in a good reception area.
