    Just about to move hosue and I've put some money aside for a nice big TV to sit back and watch the world cup, but I have no idea which manufactueres I should be looking at or which screens provide the best image quality.

    This is what I'm looking for:

    ~37" (don't want to go too big or it will look silly in the room and no projectors).
    HD ready.
    LCD rather then plasma, as I understand the pictures are better.
    Erm, that's about it really.

    So what's your advice?

    Free smiley for any help.

    What "stuff" will you be plugging into it?

    Well I've narrowed it down to:

    LG 37LC2D
    Hitachi 37LD6600
    Panasonic Viera TH37PX60
    Samsung LE37R74BDX

    Those are listed in order of cost, but there is only about £150 in it.

    So, anything I should stay away from?

    I should also say that I want to wall mount it.

    The BDX extension on the samsung stipulates that it includes freeview which it pointless if your using SKY+ so i't be better to buy the cheaper model without it.
