    Hi folks,

    My first posting to this board - although I've been 'lurking' for a while! I've got a Panasonic 32" 100Hz set that's around 3 years old (not sure of the model number). I'm wondering whether it's worth upgrading to a 36"?

    I watch Sky Digital & DVD (no terrestrial or VHS), and use an XBox. Although my current DVD doesnt support progressive scan, I would like this feature (PAL & NTSC) for when I upgrade the DVD.

    I was interested by the Panasonic PD30, but then read the number of problems with it!

    The things I don't like with my current set:
    Only 1 RGB socket
    Colour convergence problems in corners
    Ghosting on av inputs
    slight "dirty screen" effect

    The new Toshibas look nice, but I understand there are some JVC & Hitachi sets coming out. I don't particularly like Sony as a brand, but would consider them if that was the recommendation.

    Anyway, enough rambling - looking forward to your comments!

    Regards,

    Kev

    I'm in exactly the same position. I've had my Tosh 32MW7DB a while now. It was repaired by a bunch of local cowboys recently and has not been the same since, though every one whose seen it, comments on a great picture, i'm convinced it's not as good as it once was.

    I've been looking at the Tosh 36ZP38 because i like the thin bezel and Unbeatable are doing it with DVD and Video player!

    Afaik it has 3 scarts but only 2 are RGB, grrrr, i can't believe there are still no sets with lots, 4-5, RGB scarts yet. I mean they add sod all to price of the set surely. Luckily though i have a 4 way switch box which is RGB capable.

    I don't mind Sony TV's, I had a 28 before this one and i almost got a Sony 32. I like the Sony remote controls. They seem quicker than the Tosh which is awful, slow and oversized.

    I haven't read any reviews of the Tosh yet so i would welcome some comments also.

    Have just brought a Sony 36 FS 76 and i think its excellent. Got a good deal and service from the local Sony centre. The picture from Sky and from my Panasonic DMR-E100H is great, i love it :D
