    I've been reading lots of problems with the Panasonics,which I have had before also.

    But what about Sony?Do any 32in widescreen 50Hz Sony models have any lines that show up on screen like the Panasonics?

    Don't take my word for it,but there are alot of Panny telly problems I have been reading on this forum,have a browse.

    I rented a widescreen one once and it had two faint vertical lines down the left hand side on mainly widescreen material.This was two years ago and so the problem might not be around anymore.

    Panasonic auto also does my head in,as it can't make it's mind up what aspect ratio to show.

    I don't think the Quintrix tube shows much detail very well,but the colours are the best you can get,awsome.I've had the 29in 4:3 which proved this.

    My current rented Philips has a faint line straight down the middle which shows up on every source.

    I think I'm going to buy a Sony KV32LS35S,which has looks to kill for.This has just come out and it was love at first site for me,the best looking telly in ages.I've had Sony's before so I know what to expect,hopefully.

    If you have had Sony’s before have you never noticed the lines on the screen? Here’s a copy of a post I made quite a while back with regards the lines:

    Having owned a Sony T.V. in the past I agree the picture quality is excellent (colour, contrast, brightness, etc.)<br />and most sets are laden with features, but what about the thin black lines (imagine a piece of stretched black thread) that run horizontally across the screen. There are usually 2 or 3 lines depending on screen size, they are visible at all times but are more prominent on a light or white background, the lines do not move. I have inspected the full Sony range (past & present) and every model I have seen displays these lines. I contacted Sony regarding these lines and was told that they were called “ Tie lines “ and they are a characteristic Of Sony T.V.s. <br />Am I the only person in the world that can see black lines running across the screen on Sony T.V.s? Or do people just not talk about them?

    They will more than likely be on the model you mention, give it a good inspection and you will soon tune your eyes into these lines (I can now spot them a mile off) if you can live with them great….but I certainly couldn’t. <br /> <br /> Check it out. Tel. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

    I forgot to say that I did have a 25in Sony with a similar line down the middle to the Philips and other problems.Got rid of that for a 29in Sony and yes,if you get really close,I could see the supporting lines,but not from a viewing distance.

    I am taking the chance with another Sony,my first Sony widescreen.I didn't like the look of flat screens to start with,but having seen one close up,they are ok.

    I have read the post about the Sony's.I will view a 32in Sony for the lines before I make a final decision though,thanks.

    I must say that any minor imperfections,upto a point,that you see at first with a new set,go away after a while as you start actually watching the programme and not studying so closely the picture quality.You then hopefully become happy with it and accept and appreciate it.

    I've got both a Sony DVD and Digital 8 camcorder and they are brilliant.Hopefully a Sony telly will complement them.
