I know that the Philips 9986 is a cracking tv and that the Ambilight is something to behold, but in the pictures I've seen of it, it looks like someone has either left the back off the tv or it has excessive backlight bleed around the sides ! Wonder if that's how they thought of the idea from previous prototypes....... Technical team to Management: "Here is the new LCD we've been working on. The internals are finished but the case is still to be completed as there are too many wholes in the back" Management to Technical Team: "Hmmmmm, lets have a look. Turn the lights down" Lights go down "Wow, really good picture, that Pixel Plus 2 really works on crappy the Freeview signal ! And the light coming from the back of the tv is helping the Ambient light of the room and isn't straining my eyes. Actually, wait a minute. Let's have it as a feature and call it......RoomGlo" Technical team to Management: "Ummmm, how about Ambilight ?" Management to Technical Team: "Even better, glad I thought of it !" Richie.
