    I'm thinking of buying this set

    does anybody have any opinions ?

    does it come with a stand as the panasonic web site show it with no stand but comet online (diff p/n- TX32PB50C) shows it with one ?

    Agreed, the stand is included and I must admit it is one of the best looking widescreen sets around IMHO.
    If you get one without the hum - and mine doesn't have the hum and the picture is set up correctly for PAL and NTSC, it is excellent.

    If you turn the set right down to the last notch
    is there no hum at all.

    I had an engineer out last Saturday who reduced the hum
    a bit but its still there. I'll call them out again (this will be the
    6th time)

    If you turn the sound right down and put your ear to the rear of the set there is a very slight buzz - I stress, very slight, and that is normal with most electrical applicances. As for a hum - totally absent even with your ear up against either of the speakers.
    I think it is important to ensure that the engineers have been Panasonic trained on this particular chassis (Euro7, I believe)
    With reference to moire' patterning, I have read on this forum of engineers defocussing the beam to eleminate the moire' patterning. Obviously this affects the clarity of the picture. My moire' patterning was fixed by a trained engineer via the service menu.
    My experience with 6 sets in a twelve month period is that as soon as you send for an engineer, the first thing he does is take the back off - I guess there are few that are trained on any particular chassis.
    At long last, one happy customer

    How’s the geometry (if that’s the correct term) on your set.
    I have heard a few reports that the screen has a bad bowing effect in the right hand bottom corner.
    I did notice this when looking at a display set at Comet, when the volume bar came up it appeared to bend down at the right hand side. What’s your experiences / views on this.
    Would this be “fixable” by a competent engineer / or via the engineering menu or is it there for good?
    Also,
    When is the “moire patterning” effect most noticeable as I can’t say I noticed this when viewing the TV?

    Thanks Tel.
