I'm looking at these two LCD tv's, the Sony is around £930 whilst the phillips is £1200... dont really want to spend any more than that...

The Sony is 40" and the Philips 42"... will this make a whole heap of difference? also I know the Sony has 1080p... not sure about the Phillips...

Both seem to have rave reviews, and I love the design of both. I know they are both packed with features, but I just cant decide which one to go for. Obvoiusly the Phillips is £280 more expensive, so I need to know whether it would be worth spending the extra cash....

Philips Review....,39030222,49278138,00.htm

I'll be feeding a Sky HD box into it along with a PS3 playing lots of football games and watching football matches... So need the one that can best cope with all of this...

I would also love to be able to feed my music library, currently on a wireless PC, through the TV if I needed to, and need to know if these can also cope with this?... Think the philips can....

If anyone could shed light on the dilema i'd be greatful... Also if you have any others that you think might be worth looking at that'd be cool too...

Hi Ash,

If you're not desparate to buy, we're testing the Philips against the brand-new Sony (the 40W3000) in our issue that comes out 20th September, along with 8 other 40-42in sets.
Re music streaming, etc - don't forget your PS3 has certain streaming capabilities (not to mention a music-holding hard drive), and will hook up to your wireless network....


i agree read the next issue and weigh up prices. However just got the Sony w2000 and its absolutely stunning for football paticularly in hd and my ps3 looks out of this world.
