    I am currently in the process of returning my Sony KV32 FQ75 (with the now infamous scrolling bars) and was considering the new toshiba as an alternative. The problem with the sony is apparently caused by the oscillator which switches between 50hz and 100hz causing a seem moving accross the screen. I was wondering about the new tosh, it is a 100hz tv but the progreesive scan mode runs at 50hz so does this cause any problems similar or otherwise to the sony.

    Also I have read that some people complain about the the dirty screen effect. I saw the tosh in currys yesterday and luckily it was next to an fq75. I messed with settings for quite a while but could not seem to get the flesh tones right compared th the sony, seemed to be the dirty screen effect but perhaps i did not get the settings quite right. Feedback from owners of the tv would be much appreciated as the mags nowdays seem to be somewhat unreliable. Case in point no mention in the mags of the scrolling bars on my fq75. I will admit the fq gives a fantastic picture but with an unacceptable problem

    I don't have the ZD26 but I did have a 32ZP18P and then a 32ZP18Q. All Tosh 100Hz sets seem to suffer from the "dirty screen" effect. I though this was down to a "dirty" tube originally but now I think it is down to the digital processing. My new Loewe suffers from it to some extend but it is more of a blocky effect on this than the grainy effect on the Tosh. I think this is basically the only side effect of Tosh's processing technology - otherwise it is very good (no digital halos like on Philips etc.).

    I found it showed up most with movement, especially during football matches - very obvious in the grass. Also shows up on moving faces and pans across the sky.

    You do get used to it after a while but I certainly still noticed it after a month or two. I think perhaps it may vary with reception as well. I have analogue and the Tosh tuner wasn't the best in the world (slightly better when viewing via SCART from the VCR than direct from the tuner). Not sure what it looks like on digital but the effect was almost non-existent on DVDs. Therefore, I'd expect digital TV to be much better.

    I have sky so all the tv I watch is digital, so I should be ok. Have you tried any consoles on the tosh ie gamecube or xbox and what was the quality like.
