Well no doubt those with Sony FQ/FS sets will know, I got a refund from my FS70 model. I was considering the Loewe Articos or the Loewe Aconda 9381. Well today I saw the 9381 in the flesh for the same time in my local House of Fraser. Impressions? Well it looked well built and the dvd it what running (not sure of the film name) looked very natural and impressive. However the screen looked very small!!! I thought it was a 28" screen!! However it was a 32 but a very small 32"!!! I had a go of the set and at first it wasn't as intuitive as the Sony set I am used to. Eventually I got PAP and PIP working but not PAT. I asked the staff and it took them a long time to get PAT. At first I was told it didn't do PAT but I knew the set did and I had to insist that they found out for me. Eventually they managed to get PAT but then I asked about PAT with the text from another channel. This totally stumped them and even after another 10 mins, they were no further forward. Eventually through a bit of luck I got a small picture in the left hand corner and text from another channel. However I couldn't get two equal screens of PAT with text from another channel. Can this be done on the 9381? Overall it is a nice smart tv, the menu system is comprehensive and I guess once you know how to operate things, it will be second nature. The pan screen option was selected and it was outputting terrestrial channels in a 14:9 type of format. I changed it to 16:9 and that filled the screen, which is what I am used to. I would need to do further tests on the tv with a suitable dvd but compared to the other sets in the shop playing the same dvd, its picture seemed more natural and pleasing to the eye. However as usual the aerial input was appalling so I couldn't really comment on normal broadcast material. Again I probably need to find a specialist shop with staff knowing what they are talking about! However my big concern is whether I could drop down to a 32" screen. My lounge is fairly large, more a square room and I would say a 36" screen is perfect. However compared to other 32" screens the Loewe 32 screen seemed small in comparison. And I have just got used to playing Halo and PGR in full 36" display!!! Decisions, decisions, decisions!!!
