    You won't be disappointed. I'ts got good video processing comparable to the 9986, but only misses the ambilight and the nxt speakers.

    Thanks LiquidB, do you have one? As I was wondering what the difference is between the 76 & the 56, the 56 is dearer wherever I have looked?

    Still had nothing back from Philips on the matter!

    The 56 has a memory card reader and USB slot and different IO capabilities: HDMI iso DVI and no component input possible (in the 9986 it is possible via DVI)

    Forgot to mention the 56 can't handle 720p, 1080i, SVGA and XGA signals.
    The 86 can (although there is the blackbar issue on 720p and XGA, see other posts)

    The 76 can't handle these either - long call with Philips customer services as I was thinking about getting either the 76 or the 56 as I also have an issue with the styling of the 86. Have consequently given up and will go for the 86 anyway as I can't live with the inferior signal support.........

    I just got the 32PF9976. I am very pleased in general, it made my small living area look larger. The 86 is a better set but will cost another 500UKP..
    The 76 fits nicely on a wall and looks neutral

    What do you think of the picture on normal terrestrial TV and that of DVD? My complaint with this LCDTV is that everything looks like a documentary, even DVDs look like they were filmed on video!

    Hi aldergrove

    Just thought i'd mention that 32PF9976 has Pixel Plus 1 technology, whereas the PF9986 actually has Pixel Plus 2 and does have a superior picture - so the difference isn't just the ambilight.

    Shame about your wife's opinion on the looks of the 9986. The ambilight is utterly brilliant and the set looks brilliant on the right stand in the right place.

    ALSO, and this is a biggie...the 9986 has PixelPlus2 and all the others mentioned above don't.

    This is really quite important as this lifts the 9986 above all the rest when it comes to the crucial matter of Picture Quality.

    Depends how much this matters to you...

    Mine is on a Kenmark stand that cost just £199 from Comet.
