    Been looking at both T.V's.

    Have seperate Amp and speakers so are more concerned about pictire quality than sound. Know Phillips has pixel plus but would this be a lot better than the panasonics. I also heard that Phillips use Panasonic tubes.

    Have heard there has been problems with both sets, what would people recommend and why??

    Thanks for any info.

    ps does the 9527 have 2 rgb scarts or not as they aren't marked on the back of the tv next to the scarts.

    can't recommend the Philips because I don't have one

    but I do have a Panny , TX32PB50 , great picture especially blacks

    when paired with my Tosh SD210E

    I did have the buzzing problem but that got fixed , no complaints since, Geometry is ok, no vertical lines etc

    I don't use the onboard sound as i have my SR5200 and M72 package

    But I would compare it with a DAVS300 for instance (ok for some)

    I spent a year looking for a TV going around in circles, and ended up settling for the Panny tx36pb50 (it was the first one I looked at when I started). I considered the Philips for about 1months but couldn't get anywhere with a decent picture to demo it.
    I didn't like the pixel plus because I saw to many jagged edges on things like athletics, football, and rowing. Wasn't fussed on th e slow menu system either.
    More importantly neither did my girlfriend ............on second thoughts maybe I should swap to the Philips, maybe it will stop the little lady watching Eastenders.....:p

    I have heard some horrid stories about Panasonic build quality as well. Mine is waiting for an engineer to come to take a look at a slight pinkish bottom left hand corner...
    You pays your money.......................

    Well, I am still waiting for an engineer. The problem being that Panasonic service dealers will not touch a TV under manufacturers warranty, unless it was bought from them. Not in the Cardiff area anyway, ironic as the TV's are made 3 miles from my house.

    I am waiting for the TV to be collected, and returned to techtronics. They have explained that I will have to pay £100 for the delivery back to myself......:eek:
    Once I quoted the sales of goods act and the distance selling act, the cost was retracted by the lovely customer services dept.

    The saga continues..........for a month now............
