    I'm able to buy a Philips 32PW9528 for 1292 EUR or 900 Pounds.
    Should I go for it or buy a Sony 32KV-FQ70 (919 EUr / 640 Punds) or Panasonic TX 32 PX 20D (1029 EUR / 717 Pounds) ??
    :confused: :confused:

    The 32PW9528 is a really nice set with stunning pictures and sound. The only problem is the Halo effect that once you notice it can drive you mad.

    Hi Bazaa,

    I'm an newbee! can you explain the word 'Halo' please?
    I'm glad that someone tells me it's a good product.
    I've seen this forum fro some weeks and it drives me mad too. There are so many reactions, good and bad, so afterwards you don't know if it's wise to buy it

    Where have you seen it for £900. I can only find it at Comet?
    Looks a great TV to me.

    It's a company in Germany, but they don't send their stuff outside the country. Because it's not that far for me, I'm going to the store with my car and pick it up

    Hi Ivo Simons,

    Apologies for the delay in responding. Anyway, the only way I can explain the halo effect is it's like a shimmering around moving objects when the back ground is classed as complicated. For instance. I would always see it if a object was in front of trees and it moved. Somebody else likened it to the effect the "Predator" made when he moved. Once you notice it it will drive you made and you can actually predict when its most likely to happen given a particular background.

    The strange thing is I've watched lots of films on Sky and the picture has been absolutely stunning and I haven't seen a single halo effect. These films had lots of action scenes as well. Then again, I've seen a film where a guy just turns his head to talk to somebody and hey presto, loads of shimmer.
    One good example is on VH1 Classic. It's a old Elton John video shot in B/W. Its full of halo/shimmering.

    I have to ask myself what causes it. Is it a algorithm problem and why is it so difficult to get it corrected.
