    I have read some threads about Philips and them not making 36" tubes, but don't know if they've startet now. So in the new 36PW9308, do they use Panaosonic tubes or their own cybertube. Did a search in the forum but didn't find any answer to this. Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for the response. Also asked Philips about this, but have yet to receive a response.

    Just looked at the TV in the store now, and the one on display there had the 2 dots on either side, like a Panasonic tube...

    I was looking at a new Philips 36" set in Leicester today. I'm not sure if it was the 9308, but I was very dissapointed to see that it didn't have a proper flat tube, despite being advertised as a flat screen model.

    The glass faceplate was flat, but the curve of the screen underneath was clearly noticeable.

    That's the kind of thing you expect from a cheapo flat screen tv from Bush or Goodmans.

    A big :thumbsdow for Philips.

    I have been informed by LG-Philips Director of global marketing that the Philips 36" CyberTube+ (36PWRF HD) is undergoing testing and recieved technical approval only a few weeks ago.

    He stated that the 36PW9308 will use the tube and that the other model, the Cybertube slim is not now planned for production as a 36" version.

    Expecting some more info soon.
