What camera?

Here's a question for all you photographer-types. My camera broke earlier in the week (no, not from throwing it across a room), so now I'm looking for a new one. My insurance will hopefully cover me to around £200, and I'm willing to pay a bit more to get something good.

What I'm looking for (and I'm beginning to realise this may not be possible to find) is a digital compact with a decent amount of manual control – focus and shutter speed in particular would be nice – and great image quality. A screen of 2" or more would be a nice plus.

The Pentax Optio SVi seems to have the greatest amount of manual control, and a 5x optical zoom to boot, but I've read not-so-great things about shooting speed and image quality. Many others that I've looked at, such as the Kodak Easyshare V550, Canon IXUS 500, Nikon Coolpix S1 or any of the Exilims other than the EX-Z750 (which seems to have other problems) lack for manual control of one type or another.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Reading so many reviews has started to make my head throb.
