I like Samsung TVs and they come with all the sockets you list, plus several others .

Prices tend to be reasonable too and they seem very reliable. They often come top of the Which lists.:thumb:

Anything Samsung, Sony or Panasonic is a safe bet, I've got a Sony W829 and the picture quality is stunning! :)

You need/want smart functionality?


What ever you get, don't buy it without going and seeing it in person and having a good play with it. Shop demo setup's are usually awful. So be prepared to mess with the settings. :D

I'm with Niv and V_R on this one. Our Samsung is great - with all the connections one needs. (Recently purchased a "Firestick" which plugs into the USB at the rear of the set, and works really well.) :thumb:

Thanks for the input folks but a few questions!
Is Scart old technology?
Better to have more HDMI?

Scart is dead, HDMI is the future. the more HDMI's the better.

Yes Scart is quite old now and HDMI is the way forward. Newer TVs tend to have only one Scart now,where the older ones often had two, but will have more HDMIs. My main TV is about 3 years old and had 3 HDMIs then, maybe they have more now.

They all come with USB too. Don't think you'll be short of sockets whatever you buy. :)

Going for a Samsung 32" Full HD 1080pSamsung UE32H6400 LED @ £369.
Decided that 32" is about right for me as i dont watch much TV.

But still looking at the reviews & will go into a shop to look at it before buying!!

The saga may roll on a while!!!

V_R & Niv Thanks for your good advice i do listen but sometimes it takes a while to sink into the grey matter!!!

Good choice Feckit. :)

FWIW, most newer Panasonic tv's don't have a SCART, but has an adaptor for the scart to a proprietary connection. It won't be long before SCART is a thing of the past, like VHS and DVD. :)
