    I am going to purchase a new TV and have narrowed down my choice to either the Toshiba 32ZP26 or the Philips 32PW9617. Has anybody may any direct comparisons between these two models?

    I like the look of the Toshiba and the closed stand is a real bonus for people with young children, just hope my Tivo will fit in it. I don't watch R1 DVDs and my DVD player doesn't have component output so those features are not important

    I don't really need the Dolby Digital sound of the Philips but from reading this forum it seems the 32PW9527 picture isn't up to scratch.

    I currently have a 7-year-old 100Hz 28inch Philips widescreen that I have been very pleased with, excellent sound and good features, which is swaying towards the Philips. I also like their teletext system but at £350 more than the Toshiba and no closed stand is it worth the extra?

    Does anybody have the dimensions of the Philips including the visible screen area? Something Philips seem to have omitted from their web site

    [Does anybody have the dimensions of the Philips including the visible screen area? Something Philips seem to have omitted from their web site]

    Viewable screen area - 76cm
    Weight - 59Kg
    Dimensions - 84.7cm x 54.9cm x 53.9cm (W x H x D)

    Looks like a good TV but it does have a few faults (see my thread). Overall I'd say I'm quite pleased with P+ and Philips seems to have improved the DNM so that it does have less obvious artefacts.

    Main concern seems the quality of the CRT tube, since it has less clear bright colours than my old 32PW8806 and the screen doesn't appear to be as flat overall. I could certainly live with that since P+ does an extremely good job. Main concern is finding one without vertical banding or dark corners.
