Default LCD TV for Bedroom

Looking for a 19" (approx) TV. I'd prefer a decent brand and built-in DVD player if possible - any ideas?

I got a Grundig 19" with DVD from John Lewis last year. Then the DVD got stuck in it and they replaced it with the more up to date model. It's okay, although the EPGs not as good as on the previous one, and the remote's not that responsive but all round it's fine, lot's of inputs, card reader, USB etc.

Saw a Sharp in there the other day that looked decent. As ever though, you can't really compare the picture quality because TV retailers cannot seem to provide a decent quality signal to their own TVs.

What about using a monitor and DVD player instead? Other than the ports/connections is there anything else to beware of? Surely a monitor is just as good at being a TV?

If your after a monitor that doubles as a TV look at the Samsung SyncMaster range. I have an older 730np 17" and the quality is fantastic. Turns out I have had it 4 years, and cost 392 at the time. Damn...

Yeah - You would also be limited to having to get an external freeview box if you wanted to watch anything other than DVD.

The monitors I've seen with build in sound are generally terrible and possibly not even loud enough (assuming you are going to be viewing from a distance).

That said, I think Samsung so some combined TV/Monitor panels. I think Rich might have one.
