    I have got a budget of £2000 to spend on a widescreen TV, and have been considering the SonyKV-36fs70. I would be grateful if anybody could let me know if this is a good choice or are there better alternatives for the money.

    I think the Sony is a very good set, as is the 36" pixel plus Philips, the best bet is try your self, a lot of people seem to like the Toshiba picture frame model, I personally think the philips eats it for breakfast, so does the sony

    but most showrooms seem to have the various sets together,
    so go and grab the remote, and start pressing some buttons.

    dont think you would really be upset with any of the latest models.

    to be honest I have not been much of a fan of the Pixel Plus Philips, but the last couple of times I have seen them, they have been outstanding

    Not too sure if you should wait, the new models may bring even more problems! You can also keep waiting and waiting and would never end up getting one!

    There seems to be some sense in thought that if you have Dolby Digital integrated in the tv there is problems, 100hz causes problems, so maybe a Nicam 50hz set is the way to go!

    Mo - where have you seen info on on the new sets coming out? I'm in the buy now ( before the World Cup), or wait and see position.

    Only thing holding me back from the Loewe is how soft their resolution looks in the shops when zooming in on 4:3 pictures. If anybody has suggestion as to how this can be improved I might just take the plunge.

    Don't make a descision between models based on how they look in a 'shop' (unless it's a specialist dealer who has the things set up properly with good quality ariel feeds or has them connected to a digital feed which is feeding every other TV in the joint).

    Currys, comet etc etc have the things set up ****e with crap feeds and so on.

    I ordered the 36ZP Tosh before it was in any shops - had I seen it before ordering I may well have changed my mind. As it is I'm v.v.happy.

    One thing's for sure - I'm glad I'm won't be in the market again for a few years - it's a difficult decision...........

    Personally I would go for a Rear Pro set. And I did.

    You could get up to 50" for that kind of money.

    the information on these tv's is not really freely out yet.
    only the tosh'36 info is placed at the home page of this web page.
    all new 36' will come with pro scan (sony/panny).
    but you will not see any of them untill after the world cup.
    as for the loewe ,see all previous posts.
    the acconda/articos is/are the tv's i advocate the most,to hell with what you've seen @ the store,have faith!!
    go again and mess about with it,remember the world cup is coming v.soon, so you'll have take into account deliverly times if you want to watch the footy
