I have recently purchased a Philips 36PW9308 TV I had previously read many posts on this forum realting to bad experinces with Pixel+ and was a littel worried when I palecd my order. However, after a couple of days playing with sttings to get my perosnal preferences on brightness, contrast colour etc. I am very impressed with the TV. The quality and realism of the images is astounding. I previously had a 36 PF10 Panasonic and it has the edge on that. Pixel+ plus and Movie+ are not perfect - tell me anything that is? You have take in to consideration quality of TV aerial/satellite signals and choice of a decent SCART lead. Perhasp most importantly viewing distance. Yes, if I get near the screen it is 'pixelated' but at the a respectable viewing distance its stunning. Ever looked at grand master paintings in galleries close-up? I have been in the photographic industry for 25 years and although lens and film quality has improved. If you enalrge an image to poster size and put your nose against it, it won't look particularly pretty. assuming it is well focussed and evenly exposed, at the correct viewing distance it will look good. Maybe, I am fortunate in that as yet, I have not seen on my TV any evidence of 'black bands' or blue lines that some have reported. It is still early days and I wonder about other manufacturers and if they would be better (or worse) reputation does always count. I drive a Mercedes and it has it's faults! It is very much down to personal choice whatever we buy and sometimes luck. I will continue to monitor the qaulity of my Philips TV but in the meantime I will enjoy it. I want to watch the programme not the TV (if you get my drift!). By the way, I am not on the Philips pay roll!!!
