Sharp LC-20AD5E £280

An affordable and reliable 20in LCD
Whether you prefer this set's pictures or those of its rivals largely boils down to personal preference.
Where others may be warm and natural, the LC-20AD5E is precise and exacting. While other sets may lay claim to a slightly richer, more cinematic image, the Sharp has them licked in terms of detail resolution and general stability.
Great HD pictures
It's also pretty well equipped for a small set, with decent AV credentials including HDMI and a pair of Scarts.
The set is also reasonably attractive, in a squat kind of way, but lacks the friendly user interface found in some of the competition, settling instead for an impersonal, PC-like font.
HD performance is also good, making the Sharp a solid, affordable proposition.
