    I dont want to put you off but I have been involved with 4 Panasonic and 2 Sony widescreen sets in a 12 month period - all but the last Panasonic PB50 rejected for various reasons.
    My current Panasonic PB50 is now superb and exhibits none of the problems which we have been complaining about including moire' patterning in NTSC.

    Responding to the original topic I would say that getting a TV with perfect picture geometry is a very hit or miss affair. And it always has been like this. Especially on larger screen standard crt sets.
    But I remember briefly reading a What Video review of a set recently that did give a rave review for a particular type of tv. Unfortunately I can't remember what tv it was but I presume it was either a flat screen or plasma type. The geometry was stated as being perfect because of its tube type- it not being a standard crt.
    Maybe someone more knowledgeable on this forum could give us the details.
    Ok so I don't fancy spending ages searching through back issues of WV.
