    I'd go for the Pioneer. Better subjective PQ and, in my experience, a far more reliable manufacturer. Also I prefer the appearance of the Pio when it's off.

    Not wishing to sound trite but....

    Go out, view the 435FDE then view the 9986 and hopefully you'll probably really like one over the other. Also compare features such as but not limited to e.g. connectivity.

    If you still don't have a strong desire one way or another try a specialist shop to demo both sets properly setup, side-by-side if possible.

    People here can advise you one way or another but at the end of the day it won't count for much as you will have your own preferences regarding picture qualities. LCD vs Plasma has been done to death both have pro's and con's going for them and I am not aware of any major issues with either the Pioneer or the Philips but a quick forum search will drag up any relevant posts.

    Let your eyes decide for you.

    I'm biased having just bought a 435xde,but I've no regrets.Having seen the fde and the xde,and having read many comments on here regarding both (not to mention THAT magazine),I'd buy an xde every time.I can't offer an explanation as to why there's so much difference in the picture,but there is.Go for an xde Jepsen
    Regards
