I understand that I need a TV with an ethernet connection and my research suggests that either a Sony or Samsung seems to be the way to go. The size has got to be 32" as we have a small lounge and any bigger would be too dominating for the size of the room. 100Hz also seems to be recommended, even though I don't watch a lot of sport. Both brands have models with Freeview built in, which seems a plus, although it does mean a redundant Freeview tuner (eXtra Terrestrial) . Am I correct in thinking that a built in tuner is better? I see that Sony offers models with Internet Video and dlna , which I assume is a dLAN connection, options. Are these worth the extra dollars, or is this just marketing hype?
Ideally, this television should last a good 5 or so years. I know, a lifetime in the current environment, but I will trouble convincing my signficant other of another upgrade any time soon. I am leaning towards a Sony KDL-EX700, but then, that seems to be on the "archive" part of their site, so I am assuming it is an out-of-date model.
Any thoughts or comments are most welcome.
