    Currys have the JVC HV36P38 once again for £999. Having had 5 RPTVs and had various problems with them I was wondering what this tv is like. Can anyone shed some light?

    Yeah the QC's the only real worry - I'd have been ecstatic with my HV32P37, the model down from the 36" if the 1st 3 samples hadn't had really annoying geometry probs and the 4th hadn't died within 2 days (beginning to wish I'd just asked them to repair it and bring it back, 'cos geometry wise is was spot on apart from some slight curvature in 4:3 mode that I couldn't quite remove), as I got my money back (eventually) and I'm back to a 14" TV as main screen while i try to find a replacement :(

    I had a couple of P37's and they were stunning. The only problem was horizontal lines on RGB (I was not the only one).

    Hopefully the 36" does not suffer the same problems, if it does not then you will be very impressed.

    the 36 has has made in uk on it (which with electronics is always a worry (no offence john)) but compare to the phillips on display in currys not bad. and the old panny PB50 next to was looking not as sharp either, but the ZP38 tosh i think is my favourite, switched off at least!
    Unless you want to spring for a PD30 or SONY
