    Numerouse people with this TV including myself(the 46" version) and what can I say its has fantastic DVD playback. Broadcast TV not as good but there is a replacement the WH13B I think which addresses this problem.
    You will not be disapointed. :D

    Well my component input just fried, so if you do go for one, make sure it hasn't had a dunt on the flimsy rear end.

    Also [personal statement], this set is rendered pretty useless if you watch from a low position when using the optional stand.

    Other than that I have been very impressed with my 46" model.

    Good news is that Toshiba are steadily developing a well trained nationwide network of service personnel. I've just been on the phone to them today and they appear on the face of it very competent. I will advice you of their actual performance after they arrive to diagnose/repair my faulty input stage.

    gozzy, the W13B is a replacement for the 50 hz w03b, you will not get component inputs or 100 hz processing, although some people actually prefer 50 hz tvs as they dont suffer from smearing with fast moving objects. There is a replacement 42in RP coming with digital tuner styled very similar to the current Grundig Accoro range, due in August if you can wait! ;)
