Yes. Points taken. I was obviously being a bit too simplistic but I was hoping that most people would get the idea. We do see the insides of more TVs in a week than most people do in a lifetime and you would be surprised of the technical quality of a lot of your favourite and expensive sets.
Most manufacturers use others bit & pieces. Philips use all sorts of screens, mostly their own now they are in bed with LG. Rare to see a Sharp screen in one to be honest but I can guarantee that Philips firmware is regarded throughout the trade as the worst. Sony is not the best either to be honest, no matter what screen they use.
One thing I can guarantee though, is when your set goes wrong, (which it will a lot quicker than a tube set) you will want it repaired as cheaply as possible. If you were able to see a list of spares costs from the large manufacturers, you would be shocked. One example; Panasonic Plasma PSU £248. Identical unit used in a Hitachi £76
I was just hoping to get people to think about other things other than just their personnel preferences to what a good picture should look like and at what cost.
Never mind, lots of expensive crap to repair tomorrow.
