Forums can make you paranoid!

I have had my Philips 32PF9986 for just over a week now. I spent ages with magazines, reviews and on this forum until LATE at night. Having taken delivery I found myself checking the firmware, the pixals, listening for buzzing. I am now looking for a DVD player - same process: ages on the forum, loads of mags etc. The more I read and the more I find out the more sure I am that I will make a dreadful mistake and buy somethng that is consider to be a dud. Trouble is every machine seems to have someone who loves it and someone who feels it was made poorly specifically for them to buy. I reckon there comes a point where you just have to take the plunge.. stop reading and stop worrying.

Opinions????

You're right to be paranoid. We've installed CCTV in your living room so that we can record you plugging a non-prog scan DVD player via S-Video into your posh new LCD telly then ridicule you publicly :devil: :devil: :devil:

BTW is that the Fantasy channel you're watching :eek:

I think the Philips is very good. No buzz, no fizz. Great picture. Have just bought Denon 2910 (which also seems to work perfectly ... so far) and the pq is very good.
It's mounted on the wall, possibly a bit high but can't be helped.
A good purchase :thumbsup:

Thank Goodness! I've been getting a bit freaked out by the continuous stream of faults that people have been reporting. Mine is perfect too, but it seems that we are in the minority!

I told you... forums can make you paranoid. You can feel that the AV industry make two kinds of kit: the good stuff that everyone else buys and the faulty stuff they save up for when you want to make a purchase. :clown:

Hi Guys,

I too am very pleased with my 37" 9986. Only have an old (5 years) DVD player, no surround sound system but hey, I'm happy, the wife is happy and the children would watch the thing 24 / 7 if they had the chance!

I've run my Playstation and Laptop on the TV and have been pleased with the results.

Perhaps we should have a thread to find out how many people are happy with their 9986?

Regards,

Peter

Good Idea Peter! I fear somehow, that all we'd get is more grumbles....

I've had my 32" 9986 since Tuesday. No problems with it at all. I just can't believe I delayed purchasing it for so long.

My next step is to get a DVD player with DVI/HDMI. Does anyone know when the Philips DVP900sa is due out?

Had it for a week now, have to say very impressed. Normal SKY via scart works well. Pioneer DVD/Home Cinema (not prog scan) is excellent. Not encountered any problems yet with buzzing etc - must have the sound too loud!

Just need to get it on the wall.....

Had mine a day - no buzzing & set up by the gospel according to jimsan(Ta! again). Just off to collect a DVD player to try with the dvi but the piccies via rgb scart from my venerable pioneer dvd are really good...

My sky+ buzzes more than the 9986, I give it a thump and it is fine. Is this hi-tech?

Yeah! I was going to suggest that everybody with a buzzy 9986 should just thump it! No, seriously! Thump the bloody thing...it might work.

Use your fist, not a hammer...
