    these are the basics i want progressive scan, 100hz, pure flat tube, sharp picture and oh yeah very sharp picture (and no i cant afford an lcd). if theres anything else that is trully useful and not just a gimic fill me in. now went to currys and theyve got a sony kv32cs70u which he tells me has progressive scan, but sony's site doesnt seem to tell you if any of there sets are progressive. also ive looked at, online at least, panasonics tx32pd50 which looks good. ive also heard the philips pixel plus stuff is good and that house of fraiser has this 9788 cheap. my budget is £900 max really, thats online and special prices, so probably more like £1300 mufaturers retail. thanks to all who reply and put me out of my confused misery.

    Try and have a look at a Toshiba 32ZP48. I hope you'll be impressed. Not only is the picture extremely good (in 'natural scan mode') but this tv has built in 5.1 surround sound decoding if required (dvd playback etc). However, like most of the latest 100Hz sets if your analogue RF signal level is not 'top whack' then the video processing can actually make the picture look quite poor. I think perhaps many forum members would therefore highly recommend that any tv you buy should be 'fed' from a digital source - please try and factor that into your pricing if you don't have a digital receiver at present. Happy hunting. Regards, yt.

    I would also recommend the 32zp48.Of all the 100htz i have looked at, it is the most natural.The surround system is actually very good for what it is.

    i already have a yamaha rx-1000 5.1 dts thingy. this philips deal seems rather good does the 9788 have pro-scan? does the tosh have progressive scan? i cant find much info out on the philips web site i think this might be an old model?

    i looked at a tosh 36zp48 in john lewis, it was sat facing a sony and pany 32". i must say i dont know what they were sending it but it didnt look as sharp as the sony and pany. maybe the larger screen makes the difference i dont know, but the image looked kinda soft.

    As all 100htz sets,if the feed from sky or dvd is good ,then so is the picture.My zp48 is approx nine feet away and looks great.

    i dont think i could watch it. my misus already thinks its to big for our house. we sit approximately 6ft-8ft from the set. maybe the 32 is a better option i heard someone say comet has these at £699 is that the 32zp48 cause i thought the 46 was a curry thing.

    The 46 is limited sold in Dixon's group shops and Comet. It is this model you saw for £699, not the 48. However, you can get the 48 online for about £740 (ex delivery).
