    I've been after a decent 28" CRT for a while. I was almost ready to go for the Sony KV28HX15, then I found this JVC 100hz TV which is about £60 more but is 100hz.

    Does anyone think that it is worth the extra? Also, from researching the Sony KV28HX15 on this forum, i've come across mixed reviews - some say it is the best 28" out there, others say it has picture tube problems/distortion?

    I also just found this on amazon:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0009F0T6Q/ref=br_lf_ce_3/202-7727591-9214266

    Great price, 3 scarts, fantastic reviews. Is it actually as good as it seems?

    Also, if anyone can recommend any other models (my budget is £300 max), please let me know.

    Many thanks.

    Hi

    I sent my Sony KV28HX15 back due to geometry problems and considered getting the Toshiba you're looking at now, you can also get the the stand for the Toshiba 28Z53 from Amazon (if you scroll down the page) for £20, Argos do it for £300 with the stand.

    If you could go to £350 take a look at this JVC

    Review of 32 version same features as 28

    I bought a tosh 28Z44 (same tube, just has speakers under the set) last week & can't fault it. Well actually the sound is a bit rubbish, but I'm hooked upto an amp so no bother for me. Picture quality great, geometry great - v. happy bunny here.

    Be very careful about the JVC sets, they have DIST picture processing, which can really chew up a poor source (SKY). If you watch a lot of football you won't enjoy what it does to the picture, trust me. View before you buy.

    I have just been down the 28" widescreen route. Looked at everything i could find in the stores. In my opinion most sets looked like acres of cheap plastic surrounding a mediocre picture.
    Then i spotted the Toshiba 28Z47B, brilliant picture and geometry, narrow surround with speakers under the screen, reasonable stand, now have one sitting in my living room and i am very pleased with it. £299 in Comet but i got it pricematched in Currys for £295.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else find Toshiba product numbering confusing!

    The product numbers are like passwords you use for internet banking!

    e.g.28Z47B

    Never mind, their CRT TVs seem to be well respected.

    Just a thought, but it does not say pure flat screen so likely not, if that makes any difference to you, as I see the Tosh is.

    I have a philips 32PW9527 widescreen TV for sale in the classifieds. Well below the budget you specified, includes pixel plus which really ramps up the PQ on SD material.

    I definitely want a pure flat screen, the spec on the jvc website states 'natural flat': http://www.jvc.co.uk/product.php?id=AV-28T5SK&catid=100058&lid=

    Yep seems if it is. When things are not mentioned in an add I assume the worst.

    Seems a great set for the money. 3 scarts..now that shows class. :clap:

    Fair enough, it would be quite a journey.

    I'll just be using it with the basic UHF aerial signal, plus for watching DVDs and also my PC's TV-out via s-video. What does DIST do?

    So i'm pretty much decided on the JVC - does anyone know what JVC's tubes are like? Are they as good as Sony's Trinitrons (as found on the KV28HX15 - the only other TV i'm considering).
