    In Tosh hell :devil: - I have a new thought.

    Philips is great if a bit expensive. Not sure if one DVI socket is enough for me but surely the next Philips will be better connected and even better picture.

    SO the next Philips will be awesome and will run out of stock as soon as someone reviews it - so how do I get one preordered now. p.s dont tell everybody my new plan!!!!!!!! :rolleyes:

    DOes anyone have any info on the next Philips? :cool:

    Apparently they are going back to a black and white picture as it gives superior PQ...

    Here you go GF!

    The new model number is 9830 and will be available in the usual 32", 37" and 42" sizes. They will appear identical to the current 9986's, but will have considerably better connectivity and quite a lot of PQ improvements.

    Here is a link to a summary of the new range.

    http://www.avreview.co.uk/news/article/mps/UAN/230/v/4/sp/

    You'll notice that the prices are less than the RRP's for the current range! This will mean that the 32" will quite quickly drop well below the £2000 mark and should settle around the £1500 - £1600 mark. I am still a little suspicious of these prices.....we'll have to wait and see.

    The 32" and the 37" will be 1366 x 768, but the 42" is now rumoured to be a full 1080 vertical resolution!

    This could be of interest....

    http://www.cheapelectricals.co.uk/acatalog/Philips_32PF9830_32PF9830_32PF9830_32PF9830.html

    OR

    http://www.unbeatable.co.uk/CatalogueItem_26999.html

    This is the full RRP. This price will drop quite quickly....probably.

    I'll not tell anybody else!

    Jimmy

    PS. Just been digging about and came across this:

    http://translate.google.com/transla...rev=/search?q=Philips+32PF9830&hl=en&lr=&sa=G

    Interesting translation, but you'll get the general idea! Please also note my first sighting of the 32PF4320. This is a really good looking, but more basic set than the 9830. (a bit like the 9976). Looks like removeable speakers...and it has two HDMI connections! I'll bet it's quite cheap too. How much is 2400Fr? What is a Fr? Anyway, it's available next month....

    @jimsan: Fr is Swiss frank and 1 Fr is a little under £0,50. So the price of a 32PF4320 in Switzerland is £1200. The PF4320/PF5320 has one DVI connection. Model PF7320 has two HDMI connectors. The 42PF5320 will be around £1700!

    Apologies everyone, as Jvwaard says, the PF4320 is a very basic TV with only two Scarts (1 RGB) and no digital inputs.....sorry for the confusion.

    yep, PF4320 is not very interesting (in the PQ department). Apart from rather poor results in the review by tomshardware (in french), I've seen it myself in a shop in Switzerland and was not impressed by the PQ. It is just a budget 32" LCD, nothing special about it.

    Probably July, alefsin. The Europeans don't always get stuff ahead of us, and if they do, it's not by much.

    This is a roller coaster - today I hear - no Tosh 32Wl48 from EMpire - so I'm free (again) with cash in hand! But sounds like everything is out of stock.

    I'm liking Xelos more and more and also Philips (as I said above) but waiting for July is sooooo painful. I need medication or alcohol or both!

    Ah, Switzerland - where, not being in the EU, they don't have VAT. In fact importing things into the EU (not just the euro zone) would also attract import tax. So add about 25% to the price of any in Switzerland for the benefit of HM Customs and Excise, and then a smidgeon more for currency charges, and you have something like the shop price in the UK.

    Nothing like a dose of pessimism to make waiting more bearable.

    Well, in fact we have a fixed 7.6% VAT on (almost) everything. Well, OK, just that and nothing more. However, the problem is that Switzerland is a very small country (read small market) which means there are not that many options when you need to buy something new. You can find almost all new products in the online shops but not in the local shops. When it comes to things like TVs, buying from an online shop is not a very easy task. There is no demo before making your mind, there is no easy return policy (WoW, I see some people in these forums returning their philips LCD 6 times before getting happy with it! Simply impossible with an online order) and generally you buy things just by reading some good reviews and cross your fingers hoping it is what you actually have in your mind.
    So maybe, if we bring the risk factors in the equations, the prices in Switzerland and UK are not that different ;)

    What deeplyblue is trying to say is because Switzerland is not in the Eu we have to pay import tax or vat whatever it is called.

    I don't really like buying big or expensive things online from a different country because it will be a pain and expensive to make returns.... but thats just me :)

    I've just Emailed Philips to ask if the 32PF9830 has support for 1366 x 768 over the DVI connector. I'll post the reply when I get it.

    I was going to do that tonight too! There are a lot of folks frustrated by not being able to hook a PC up at full resolution.

    We'll await their response.

    Maybe also ask them if there is any chance of a firmware upgrade for the 9986 to get 1366x768?
    If not via DVI than at least on VGA.

    I used to think that only Sony could make something like electronics looks snatzy, but Philips new range of hardware are starting to take on a 'charm of aesthetics' usually only accustomed to a Sony.

    DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

    I must say Philips are very speedy when it comes to replying to queries. The bit about "We have checked the preliminary specification information which does not include the resolution you mention." is because I made a typo - in my original query to them I said 1666 x 768! their techies must have been a bit puzzled!)

    Anyway it looks like good news :) . Now it's just a matter of time and money. Here's their full reply:

    PHILIPS

    Dear Sir ,

    We refer to your recent email.

    This model has not yet been released. It is due in Quarter 3 2005 and the user manual is not yet avalable.

    We have checked the preliminary specification information which does not include the resolution you mention.

    We include the supported resolution table below


    With kindest regards,
    Philips Customer Care Centres

    Hi, new friends!
    Like some of you, I´m thinking to buy one of the new models of Philips LCD PF9830 instead of 9986 actually available. It´s not easy, but I can wait a few months more.
    I ve been thought in 32PF9830, but I read that will go without active control with light sensor. I ask for those members who have a PF9986:
    Is the active control with light sensor really important and necessary ? Is really good for the quality of image? Is really effective?
    Or do you recommend me the 37"PF9830 model with the light sensor? I´ve no problems for distance and space for a 37" model. 42" it´s enought. :lease:

    Thanks in advance for your answers and excuse my bad english.
    dACEniel :(

    I've replied to your similar post on another thread.

    Digitaldr,

    Good news there then! The fact that the new 9830 will support full screen at Pixel 1:1 is tremendous news. So many people will be so happy!

    I feel '9830 FEVER' starting to build!

    More info will start spilling out daily now.....drool.

    Just thought I'd pop this link in here. There is an increasing amount of interest in this new range of Philps LCD's and this place is the first one I've found selling it at less than £2000!

    http://www.dcsat.co.uk/products_tv_item.asp?product_id=174

    Here we go.....I tell you, these'll be selling at £1600 before you know it!
