I bought a Panasonic PL1 from Empire Direct and it has a major fault which I can't live with. I was watching some motor racing last night and whenever the camera panned over the track it looked like the track was moving underneath something. The tube seems dirty on the inside and it's got worse throughout the two weeks I've had it. Empire Direct seem to be being really good. They are going to test it for the faults I described and replace it if found faulty. If it's not found faulty then apparantly I can still change it for another tele or have my money back. Seems like there customer service is spot on - I guess I'll get some first hand experience of this over the next few weeks!!! Anyway, I think this dirty tube issue is a general problem. Several people have reported it on www.avforums.com so I'm not sure that I want another one just to have to send it back again. So what do I change it for. Sony seems out cos of this 'lines on the screen' issue. Toshiba teles are apparantly very problematic as well. Loewe have a good rep from what I've heard but are well expensive. JVC seem quite good as well but they suffer from geometry probs (as do Sony). I'm gonna have a look round at the weekend. I'm going to consider non-flat screens this time as well. Current thinking is a Panny TX32DK1 - non flat screen but not too bad, or a JVC 32WFT1 which people seem to like but it might have shoddy geometry. Any other suggestions? My criteria are a sharp picture, colours must be even across the screen and the tube must show a clean picture rather than something with dirty patches on it. Thanks. Darren.
