    Panasonic 65" would be a good bet if he likes the image yours gives.

    You'll need to add a top scaler to that, it's a must have at that size.

    Sony KDE-P61MRX1.

    Even if it didn't switch on (cue MAW?).

    Scaler not necessary IMHO.

    This one is the truly nasty NEC panel. I wouldn't have it if it were free.

    It looks nothing like the NEC panel or Pioneer panel though MAW - panel driver, video processing and scaling are all unique and the best on any consumer tv.

    Have you honestly seen it properly? It's on display in quite a few places, at least two in London, displaying Freeview sans scaler. "Nasty" isn't the usual reaction, even from just a few feet away.

    Well we agree there! It's certainly worse than the Sony!! I still wouldn't. I have seen it, even at a Sony HQ with HD, it was in my view, plain nasty.
