    I have one of these ...originally went to buy the 32FX60 and ended up buying the 65!
    I am very happy with it, running a Sony 735 DVD with it and picture quality is second to none, gave a friend a demo... he wasn't too sure about 100Hz and it blew him away!!

    no problems as yet (only had it about a week!!)The stand is a pain as you can't get much kit on the shelf,certainly its not designed for a centr speaker to fit in, so iv"e had to buy a new stand and alter all my gear around,still,the crisp picture is worth it.I've got the 100 Hz version (does it come in 50 Hz?)and have no trouble with smearing/shadows/artifacts etc even on sky sports (digibox). Hope this helps

    Hi,

    I am thinking of purchasing the KV-32FX65.

    Have you encountered any problems (Other than the awkward stand!)?

    What is the 100Hz mode like?

    I too am thinking of buying one of these TV's after MUCH deliberation but one question for anyone out there is which online store would you buy it from ?

    I have looked at www.empiredirect.com which are selling it for approx £1208 + del? however I have seen www.premieravcentre.co.uk selling it for £899 + del? without the stand (Which I could live without)
    This all sounds too good to be true & after visiting www.electrocentre.com for the same TV it struck me that they might have been selling the european version to me, as this site has it for £850 without the stand. Anyone agree that this is the most likely reason why it is so cheap & is the european version inferior to the UK one ? Any feedback would be most welcome. I will of course ring them up to see what the score is.

    Hmmm...I've still got the DVD, speakers & amp to sort out now ;)

    I bought a KV-32FX65 last night from a dealer in Brussels (where I live) and got a Tosh SD200E at the same time. OK, just a few hours of watching down the road, but the picture seems exemplary, after you've fiddled round with the filtering options which make quite a bit of difference. As for the questions whether or not the European version is inferior to the UK one, I can only suggest back to you that that is very "British" thinking, and I'm not being offensive. From reading the manual (and my French/ Dutch/ German isn't superb! ;) ), it will happily decode PAL-I (UK standard) as well as PAL-G/H used in the rest of the world. I did see that Techtronics were selling this unit for £850, plus throwing in a decent set of Sony headphones (last week they were worth £160, but now they seem to be worth £200 - umm) and 3 decent DVD titles. Of course, if you buy a DVD or some such at the same time, you get another 5% discount. As for the TV, a great buy, although it's a shame that the matching stand has got that silly glass cover which prohibits the use of a centre speaker underneath, and I wouldn't contemplate putting one on top. HTH. :cool:

    I finally bought the KV32FX65 from techtronics for £998.75 & is an excellent TV. Got the DVD's free & headphones like they say, but the only drawback was no instructions or remote..lol.. A quick call has put that right & they should be with me tomorrow with an apology (but don't be put off from buying from them)

    Here's to many enjoyable hours of viewing :)

    Got KV28fx65 through lets buy it.com for £799.00. Gives an exceptional picture. Only slight problem was that the overscan was not set up properly for NTSC region 1 DVD's and produced a thin blue line at the top of the screen. Engineer called and fixed it. No problems and one very happy bunny.
