    I´ve never had any problems with my JVC AV28WFX1.

    The picture quality is excellent.

    I wouldnt say its perfect though, but its certainly not a nightmare to live with!

    The geometry is a bit out on 4:3 but as i never watch it in this mode it doesnt bother me.

    cheers

    The forums will generally focus on the bad points. You will rarely get a post saying how good a tv is.

    The Toshiba 32/36 ZP18P gets as many happy with it as those who are not.

    I would agree with DDoom regarding most postings. I do think however that buying a TV these days is a bit of a lottery. You don't know how good it is until you get it out of the box and plug it in.

    Quality control seems to vary somewhat with all makes from batch to batch. So what do you do, see a great one on display and buy that? Maybe but could have been running for months. Buy the same but new only to find that it is not as good as in the one in the shop? Always a bit of a gamble.

    I think these days with such choice for me the trick is get from a dealer who still cares about customer satisfaction. Hard to find but I think it important to be confident upon purchase that if you have a problem that it will be sorted without hassle and in good time.

    For my money, cheapest is not always best and now am a RP convert.

    My 2 cents

    Regards<br />Mark
