well, after a couple of weeks of scouring these forums and walking the shops I'm finally going to lay down the cash tomorrow... Down to a choice of 2: Panny TX32PL4 - £699 Sharp 32JF73H - £599 Both are at Comet. Both seemed to me to have great pictures and the ones in the shops had none of the problems that get reported on here. I searched for ages in vain for a set that I could get a price match from JL but they're all just out of my price bracket. (except for the Philips ones which I think all have very grainy pictures). So unless anyone tells me different I think its the Panny. Although the £100 saving for the Sharp could go towards an amp & speakers.
