I have several questions regarding the above TV which I would be most grateful for any help.

Having studied WhatHifi and viewed various TVs in shops we decided on the above TV as it seemd a bargain at(£650) for the quality. However we noted in a well known high street shop the following:

1. Stands.
Sold at circa £200 where as I note you can buy them from Amazon for around £50. They look the same, has anyone any experience of the cheaper variety?

2. Power surges.
Do we need a power surge protector (well known shop was positive we did!)? If so what make/brand can be recommended etc.

3. Finally I have not started looking for a surround sound sysetm yet. Would I be aswell just buying the 'budget' recommendation as listed in Whathifi? Most shops seem to have lots of TV to demonstrate, but very few surround sound systems.

Many thanks in anticipation of any guidance given.

I think this may need moving top the right part of the forums ('TV's and Projectors' and 'Home Cinema')

This part of the Forums is for HiFi.

Hope you find the info youre after.
