Whether it is for a bedroom or kitchen the 19 inch is the most popular size for people looking for a small TV and all of the major brands have LCD models in this size. A 19 inch LCD can cost between £150 and £300 with some models also including a DVD player.
Recently Channel Five’s Gadget show did a review of 19 LCD TVs with the Sharp LC19SH7E coming out top of the 3 they reviewed with good picture quality, decent sound and rich colours. The Sharp was also the cheaper of the 3 making it overall their favourite bedroom TV.

Meanwhile, the Panasonic TX-L19X10 is widely available at quite a number of outlets and slightly cheaper than the price quoted on the TV show TX-L19X10 Prices. The Sony KDL-19L4000 is also available KDL-19L4000 Compare Prices
