New guy here - I want to buy a 17 - 20" LCD TV for a bedroom for less than $500 on-line or a local B&M. I asked for opinions on the Daewoo DLN-17D3 but no responses yet.


Looking for a good quality LCD TV that is priced below Sharp Aquos - which seems to be the default recommendation for LCD's in this size.


Does the higher resolution #'s translate to a better picture? Alot of the Sharp models are 640 x800 or 800 x 600. Is it better to get a :


1024 x 768,

1280 x 768, or

1280 1024 ?


Do these #'s differentiate between ED-Ready and HD-Ready units?


Besides Daewoo any particular brands or models for a 17"-20" LCD TV you can suggest as well-priced, good values - LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Sony Batesias, BenQ, Envision, Viewsonic, Norcent, Phillips, Sceptre, Syntax, SVA, Wesinghouse....?


Appreciate any advice. Thanks, John

You don't say what you are planning to connect to it. If it is plain old TV then the extra high resolution numbers probably aren't going to be an improvement.

Will be connected to D* (no HD stations, though at least for the time being) plus DVD player. Thanks, John

All else being equal, higher resolution would be better. Unfortunately, all is not equal. Be sure to check to see how well the set produces blacks and its response time (bluring during motion sequences). The best thing to do is to find the sets next to the Sharp and see how they fair displaying real images.
