    Dangerous question mate with all us Pixel Plus fans around.

    When I was doing the rounds the Tosh was a serious contender, but those dark bars really got to me once I started seeing them. In the end for sheer picture quality it had to be the 9607, and I have to say I'm still loving it after 3 weeks.

    Phil,




    Are you not concerned that you have a panasonic tube and not the cybertube HD?

    Prince of Egypt, I get a 9607 on Saturday and as far as I'm concerned the tube could be made by Alba, as long as the picture quality is excellent (which it is on the PP sets), then I don't care!!!

    Like any technology, if you wait long enough a new product will appear....if you like the look of a tv, just go for it.

    Good luck in your search!

    Having had a demo of the 9607 and then a demo of the Toshiba
    (I watched the fifth element R1 all the way through on both sets)
    The Toshiba is without doubt the best for picture quality.
    So I bought it and love it yes it does have its faults the black lines either side but they are only noticable on certain things.

    I find it noticeable on sky digital watching the cricket through RGB
    Then it is only slightly noticeable you can get rid of them with some tinkering with the brightness and contrast etc.

    Every 36inch tv will have it's problems but for me the toshiba is the best on the market at the moment and I an very very happy with my set.

    I have the 36PW9607 phillips - am i bothered about it being a pana tube - nope - cracking set and i love it :)

    I will admit though that prior to purchasing i was a bit bothered about it being a pana tube - but tbh i cant see why i was bothered - as i said its a cracking set.

    After seven (7) TV, I am finally happy with my Philips 36" PW9767 with Quintrix F tube.

    It seems that this model is not available in UK. Wonder why because this 9767 has nearly everything.

    After comparing to other brands (and the old Philips 36" 9525), I really can say that this P+ on Philips new 36" models, 9607,9527 and 9767(Quintrix F), makes a difference :D

    It should be even better with HD Cybertube and P+.

    It starts with 9527 and soon every HighEnd models from Philips are going to have HD Cybertube. And no more 36" from Panasonic. But this tube is probably the best for now according to EISA Awards price for best TV 2001/2002. (36" Quintrix F tube). :)
