This looks like Philips next generation panel, to supercede the 9986/76/56 panel.DangerMouse! said:New Phillips LCD "32PF9630A" out Q4 2005

I have an idea about what Guru is talking about, Its like when you use a camera or something to take a picture of the tv and you see the bar scanning through it. I think that is it, anyway of all the lcd tv's i have seen none of them can compare in terms of picture quality to the Philips 32pw9509. this set is unreal and the only reason i moved it into the bedroom is that i wanted to use sky's new hdtv service, but now i dont know if i can even do that because i have the 32pf9986 with firmware 1.3, please could someone advise if it is hdtv ready, Thanks, Mark.jimsan said:I don't really have a clue what you're talking about Mr.Guru.....'scanning row-based refresh'... indeed......but your last sentence has left me in some doubt about your title..
I sincerely hope that Philips have no intention of making their displays more CRT like! I'm sure that you've seen a 9986 on full tilt displaying a good quality DVD source. It is astonishing! I have never seen a CRT come close to this kind of quality.
If this new Philips technology succeeds in blackening the blacks and smoothing the motion then, in my opinion, this will take LCD's into an entirely different league to anything else. Never mind 'as good as CRT', more like 'do you remember CRT's?'
Don't like the idea of flickering screens though.....
