    Welcome to the forums. You mean 100kHz :) First, check the classifieds on here ;) Second, for £1000 you should be looking at a 36" if you have the room.

    I suspect he means 100Hz, actually. :lesson:

    gmjones, Loewe TVs seem to be quite popular round here. There are some question marks over the reliability of the Nemos, but you can buy a Vitros (discontinued model) for comfortably under £1000, or a Mimo for not much more. £1250 or so would get you an Aconda.

    :D Yes, of course. :smashin:

    I notice that AVMASTER is selling a new, unwanted 32" panasonic in the classifieds. Might be worth looking at.

    You could start by having a look for Loewe TVs at www.tvandvideodirect.com

    (Note that Vitros, Aconda, Aventos, Mimo and Nemos are different models of Loewe TV, they're not manufacturers!).

    Panasonic and Phillips seems to be quite well thought of too.

    I got my Acconda from them. Some of the lower models use to have the same workings as the Acconda it is just that the Acconda had an expensive surround. The pictures on the Loewe range are outstanding and there is a plethora of useful futures on the set. I like being able to mute the sound and no great big mute symbol permanently coming up on the screen, which is useful when using surround equipment.

    Do you know which ones? If it's the case that a Vitros is actually functionally identical to an Aconda 9381 (in particular if it has the Philips tube rather than the Toshiba one they used to use in the Aconda 9281) then it would be rather a good buy at the moment.

    Yes it is the Vitros the one, the one with the curved outwards front. I was told on this form and have not witnesd the functionality of it, but I was told the only difference is the casing.

    Will see if I can find a old review of it.

    I'd suggest the Toshiba 32ZP48 - 32", 100Hz and you should easily get one under a grand. One helluva TV.

    The Aconda doesn't have a curved outwards screen (or certainly my one doesn't). It has a flat screen.

    Read it again I was on about the Vitros.
    And I meant the side of the cabinet, not the tube.

    Just ordered a Nemos for £919 from Hughes direct. If you try out the "Which on line" for the 30 free trial then it gives you a direct phone number for Hughes where they give you an extra discount for being a "Which" subscriber. I didn't realise that at the time. I only wanted to see what "which" magazine had to say about the Nemos so the discount was an extra bonus. Anyway, "Which" give the Loewe Nemos best buy for 2004. Just to note as well, the Loewe Aventos was best buy for 2003.

    Bazza :D

    You may be right - I think at least some Loewe sets do use Panasonic tubes, and I think the 40" Aconda uses a Thompson tube. But the important question is whether or not the Vitros has/had the same spec as the Aconda 9381 (Philips tube) or the same spec as the Aconda 9281 (non-Philips at least sometimes).
