    Get the 9617. You cannot fault any of it. Superb!

    Well lots of people can and have faulted it but I wouldn't change mine for any other CRT on the market (except maybe the 9618) :p

    I bought mine after an unhappy experience with a Tosh... poor geometry and dirty patches on the screen. At the end of the day the best TV for you is the one your eyes like best. Get a demo!

    Good luck with the hunt ;)

    ...and buy from a reputable retailer, preferably with a long warranty (eg. JL or HOF). Both will price match, or you can use a Barclaycard.

    Given the poor QC and appalling reliablity of Philips (and other manufacturers) sets, be wary, be very wary :rolleyes:

    My Philips set (32pw9527) had black bars from day 1 and died with a blown tube after 11 months :eek: Apparently this is not uncommon.

    My new Panasonic set (PD30) has colour staining and dirty marks on the screen. Currently awaiting (1st?) replacement from HOF...

    Just my 2p'th.... ;) :)
