    I am trying to decide on a TV...

    and narrowed it to 2

    28PW6518/05
    or
    28PW6520/05

    i can find lost of info on the 6518 model but not the 6520 model.

    Picture quality is the most inportant thing as all sound will run through a amp.

    i really like the picture on the 6518 and was already to buy it but then stumbled on the 6520 model (is this a updated version of the 6518???)

    both TV's are about the same price online.

    your opions would be gratefully recived.

    Why do you want a 28" when a 32" is far better... do you have limited space?
    and what's your budget. I've recently got the 32pw9509 which has pixel plus 2. I've got nothing but praises for it, except the sound quality could be a bit better. Considering I paid a very good price for it I think it's a top feature packed TV for a very resonable price.

    If you look on the Philips site:

    http://www.consumer.philips.com/con...pe=CONSUMER&productId=28PW6520_05_GB_CONSUMER

    You will see that the 6520 model has got "incredible surround"

    I have 2 philips sets the 24PW6518, and the 32PW6408.

    The 6408 has this "incredible surround", and the 6518 has "virtual dolby" which is much better.

    For this reason I would suggest the PW6518. :thumbsup:

    Unless space is an issue, go for the 32" model

    Hope this is of some help

    Thanks for the replys.

    It's mot space thats the issue but ££

    My budget for a new TV is £250

    so that ruled out most 32" screens. (all good ones anyway :D )

    i looked at the Panasonic stuff (all you could see in the panasonic shop) and felt they were very expensive for what you got..even online.

    i also felt they looked dirty (the whites never seamed very white or bright or clean).

    I took the plung and bought the 6518/05 for £250 inc delivery etc..

    a couple of things chinched it

    1. i could not find a review anywhere on the 6520

    2. the specs on the 6518 seamed higher i.e.

    6518 (Colour temperature adjustment, Contrast plus, Crystal Clear III, Scavem, Sharpness adjustment, 2D combfilter)

    6520 (Crystal Clear III, Scavem, 2D combfilter)

    6518 (Real Flat Black Line S)

    6520 (Real flat picture tube)

    whether that true or not as none of it makes any sence to me.

    so it should be turning up on thursday now..

    One thing i have notice about buying a TV, you spend ages looking through the reviews to find a good TV then spend ages looking around to see if you can afford it.

    then phone up a couple of places to find "oh sorry we don't have that any more" ----- then why the smeg is it on your web site.....????

    and start the whole process again.

    "I've recently got the 32pw9509 which has pixel plus 2"

    i would have loved to buy that TV but at £650 way out of my price range.

    I think you have made a good choice :thumbsup:

    I have my 24PW6518 in our bedroom, it really is a great little TV.

    Enjoy your new set :)

    As he says above:

    Judging from the specs, that's what I would have done too :D

    As it says above, not as good. Don't know if it is good (enough for your purposes) though!
