I had a walk in the above stores on Sunday - There are some nice new ones about. The reason I bought a LG DLP was that all the rest had ribbed plastic screens and my missus hated the feel of them. There are some Toshibas out now with non ribbed screens and they look really nice - good picture etc. My old Toshiba 33" cinema surround TV is still going strong - sold it to my mate at christmas 11 years after i bought it. It never once needed to be repaired. I would say that is a good reason to buy a Toshiba. If I was to sell my LG 44" I would not get even a £1000 for it now. Worse than owning a Rover car at the moment Wish I had waited 12 months now - in hindsight that is!!!!
