    Hello everyone, can anybody help me?

    I am in the market for a new 32" Widescreen TV. I have read loads of reviews, but the one HOME ENTERTAINMENT gave the Toshiba 32ZD26P really caught my eye! Although it did mention of a "Digital Shroud Visible On Moving Images", but no dramatic motion blur was reported!

    I know that some of us have got one, (and some still waiting!), could you please tell me of any bad points or faults you may have come across, also How does the 100Hz manage with FAST Movie sequences on DVD? and How does it cope with signals of a Digital Broadcast?

    I am also contemplating going down the IDTV road. Panasonic's new IDTV is the TX-32DT30 (100Hz Scan). I have found NO reviews on this model and would like to ask anyone who owns one, or anyone who knows any good or bad points, to share their experiences please.

    Any help you guys can give is appreciated? Fill me in on the new Tosh and Panny sets!

    Cheers!

    Paul.

    Come on guys over 30 reads and not one person is willing to offer me just a little advice.

    Is it worth getting an IDTV? Toshiba is releasing a new IDTV later this month, July. The new **ZT29 it will come in 36", 32" and 28" and the same styling as the Toshiba 32ZD26(P), the STRATA range continues.

    Does anybody own a Toshiba 32ZD26? If so could you please share good/bad points? That way I can weigh up the options of the STRATA analogue and STRATA digital.

    Many Thanks guys, please help?

    IDTV or stick to analogue widescreen?

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Paul.

    Hi booboobear,

    I have just sold my IDTV a Sony KP41DS1 RPTV and basically with only the free to air chanels available now whats the point.

    I have just upgraded me cable subscription from basic to family pack.

    All I can say is if IDTV is no more than £99 more than the non IDTV then yeah consider it but if its more then just buy a standalone DTV box.

    I never ever watched the analogue chanels on the Sony.

    Now I have a nice new 32ZD26P which arrived just over an hour ago details in other thread.

    Cheers
    Bry

    Thanks Bry, I appreciate your advice. Once you have had a play with your brand spanking new Toshiba 32ZD26 let me know your full view on the set I am very interested to hear what you think of it.

    Cheers, look forward to reading your review.

    Paul.

    Bry,

    Why on earth are you exchanging a 41 inch screen for a 32 inch one?

    I am about to do the reverse, although probably a Toshiba 46 or 50 inch.

    Is there something about RPTVs that I should be wary of?

    Brian.

    Because I have also just got a Panasonic AE100 PJ and 7ft screen :D :D :D

    Dont need to be wary about RPTV's m8 my Sony was absoloutly stunning, and if the mrs would of let me take out the fireplace I would of kept it.

    I only sold it because with the pj and screen my living room layout has had to change and meant the RPTV was too big now :(

    I think IDTVs are excellent!

    Heres why - BBC in Widescreen, C4, ITV in Widescreen.

    RGB Free for DVD

    Watch News24 without a silly little box!

    The IDTV tuners are better!
