    Hi,

    A friend of mine told me this...is this true? He said that all philips screens are made by LG?
    If so how close are they quality wise.

    That means even the Loewe screens are even originally produced in the LG factories.

    Hi,

    Just to sort things out here, I worked for Panasonic a few years ago and most TV manufactures use components from each other. I was on pre-assembly for TV's and have seen Philips, Panasonic, and other tubes being used. Panasonic make a lot of PCB (printed circuit boards) for other companies. Hope this helps :)
