    Are owners generally very happy with their Pan TX32PS12's?

    Looking today again at various sets in John Lewis/Dixons etc I wasn't impressed with a 'PS12 that was showing "warped" vertical lines (the box around the Dixon's logo that was moving around screen) when showing a demo video (the Sony FX68 next to it seemed to have no problems).

    Is this the norm with the 'PS12...do vertical lines generally appear vertical as they should do. For example the blue Sky Digi program info box...is that nice and straight or all skewed?

    Any comments from FX68 owners too?

    Are there are reviews out there of FX68 vs TX32PS12 (failing that are there any reviews that deal with them individually)?

    TIA.

    All CRTs (but most noticeably on larger ones) are prone to geometry defects. And what is considered to be 'within tolerance' at a manufacturer may not be what you as an end-user considers to be tolerable.

    Most modern TVs do have a service menu in which these things can be tweaked, and the factory results can often be improved upon. But they are rarely able to be made perfect. And the shape of the image often changes with its brightness - a 'feature' that cannot be tweaked out.

    Perfect geometry (and convergence for that matter) is only assured with flat panel (Plasma, LCD at present) displays. Of course, they bring with them their own, different, artefacts.

    The above is true to a greater or lesser degree with all makes. I believe that, generally, Loewe tend to try a little harder to get things right.
