    Interesting.

    I'm getting more info about the 9830 range shortly, and it seems to be fairly revolutionary....but the folks at Philips are even more excited about the 2006 range, saying it is going to be a real groundbreaker! It just goes on and on....

    Really? Can you give any flavour of the sort of direction they're moving in with that? It's hard to see an obvious area for improvement, if the 9830 really IS as good as they say...

    Oh crap :D, why is it everytime I think about taking the plunge and buying a screen that I hear of something better and then convince myself to hang on that little bit longer. Come on 2006.

    In 2006 there will be an announcement about the 2007 models that are better and/or cheaper.
    For quite some time to come, an LCD TV will not be a wise investment, when you value having the best available model and/or the lowest possible price. Kind of like the situation with PCs over the past 25 years. As soon as you buy one, announcements of better and cheaper models appear everywhere.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaa I just ordered a 32" Loewe yesterday and now reading this thread and the one above stating he bought a 32" lcd for £799, I'm panicking before I've even received my new toy! I might have to stick my head in the ground and ignore the AV forums for the nect couple of years once I've taken delivery!

    I know exactly what you mean! New improved models coming all the time!

    Don't worry about paying more for your Loewe. The £799 TV referred to will be one of the increasing number of budget sets which actually perform very well, but not at the level of the likes of the Loewe.

    The thing is, LCD's are grand right now. It's been said many times on this forum that you should wait....and wait.... There will always be a new, improved model around the corner whenever you buy. The big decision to be made is whether the timing suits you to wait for the next model or not. Current LCD's are already very good, but they will continue to improve...and improve. I expect that in 5 - 6 years I'll be in the market for a new one again...just think how good they'll be by then!

    It is called marketing hype...whether these things actually live up to the hype is a different matter!

    So, like someone wrote about PCs (can't remember who) - does one buy a goodun now, or spend half as much on a respectable one and the other half on another respectable one in a couple of years - I know which way I'm going but respect to the people buying from the big manufacturers so they can research the next thing to come along :thumbsup:
