Much as we'd like to fill every room in our respective cribs with 42in plus monsters, property prices dictate that most of our abodes are barely big enough for a handheld portable.For just such instances Evesham has wheeled out this pair of 26-inchers at the bargain price of under £400.And just because they're small, it doesn't mean they need to skimp on HD. Both are 720p/1080i capable. The VX packs a digital tuner and Top-Up TV slot while the standard V model relies on good old analogue or a plug-in box.The 700:1 contrast ratios are nothing to shout about but the 8ms response time will do nicely for a spot of bedroom or small lounge gaming.Choose your model wiseley though. If you're planning on plugging in more than the PS3 or Xbox Elite, skip the V and go for the pricier VX model and its two HDMI slots, or you'll find yourself stuck in a whole world of cable swapping hell.
