I know it is xmas, but having read as many reviews/opinions as I can (and having seen it in the flesh) I am on the verge of ordering the new philips 36" 9618 model but am going mad with confusion. (Having looked at the pan pd30 and tosh models, I felt their appearances would date a bit more quickly - though obviously the pic is the important bit ) my questions are ; 1) there dont seem to be many people commenting on the philips - is this a good thing ? 2) currys are advertising a tosh 36" 36zd26p for £999 in the sale - is it worth spending another £400 for pixel plus ? 3) I always perceived philips as a bit of a 'cheap' make - has their image really changed 4) I plan to order it from digital direct - are they ok, are they likely to drop it in the sales, and does anyone recommend taking out an extended warranty. Thanks in anticipation - apologies if I have breached any sort of etiquette here I am a new member - merry xmas !
