This one's a telly, LCD, 1080p, but maybe not that smart and only 22"...  :-\

However, I bet it's smarter than Eboy's old telly and it's 5" bigger!  :y

Argooose linky

We're trying for you Eboy!  ;D

If he says that's too small I'm giving up.

I like LG screens  :y
it's not waterproof to go in the bath with Eboy.com though
 and it's 2" short of what Mrs Eboy.com (Egirl.com  :-\ ) needs to keep her happy

Just been to Costco. They have some fantastic tellys in there! Fantastic prices too.

I was impressed though how slim tellys have become though .... most of the screen was less than 1/4" thick  :o :o

I have actually looked at that one previously, but it lacks Smart functionality.

First place I looked, but nothing that small (certainly in the Coventry branch).

You walk in (to any Costco), and the first thing you see is bunch of massive TVs, so when you walk around the corner to look at the smaller ones, you find something that meets the specs, but then realise its still 40", yet looks tiny ;D

Those massive Costco tellies always strike me as massively expensive.  :-\

An 80" TV is never cheap.

Costco are pretty competitive on them, and like JL, you get a 5yr warranty.  But choice is poor.

Plenty here
Nope. Not one.  Nothing online, or in the MK store, where the guy was even kind enough to look up if any of the old stock was still available in other stores.

This type of product was readily available 2 or 3 years back, just not now.

So far Auto Addict has got the closest, but I think it may be too small, and research online shows the Bush ones may suffer bad reliability issues.

I'm gonna cut out a bit of cardboard to that size and see how it looks :y

OK, 22" is defo too small. 24" is looking too small as well, which is going to narrow my search even further  >:(

I'm guessing there is a shortage of 1080p panels in that size, or yield issues (amounts to same thing), so nobody is really producing them.

I'll have to revisit in a few months :(

I'm guessing it's more lucrative to sell them in computer monitors at that size. ;)
