This is probably a question asked many times, but I would like to hear people's views on (i) Philips 36PW9607 (ii) Sony KV-36FS76 (iii)Toshiba 36ZP38 We purchased the 36" Philips in May and alternate between thinking "What a wonderful picture " to "What an awful picture". At times we have shimmmering/haloing around people's heads and moving objects which really spoils the enjoyment of the TV. After spending a lot of money on Monster scarts/compatible Philips video and Sky+ we were told by the Sky engineer that this is a common problem on the Philips Pixel Plus models. I wrote to Philips and the retailer (on-line company- don't know whether I am allowed to mention them by name?). Had a simple reply from Philips (turn the Active Control button on (already on!!) but then got a phone call from the retailer. Told them I had done some research on the TV and knew there was a problem with Pixel Plus. Had this instant response from them. . . "As long as the TV is as new they will send a courier to pick it up and we can choose a different TV" !!!!!!!!!!!! Hadn't even asked for a refund - just for advice as to how to fix the problem!! Then I found this forum and discovered how many other people are upset with the Pixel Plus and realise how lucky I am to be offered a replacement without having to fight for it!! The on-line retailer have been very reasonable. I would certainly use them again. Anyway . . the TV is being picked up next week and we have to choose a new TV. I am interested in the other two models above, probably swaying towards the Sony as I do not like the look of the Toshiba picture frame model. I have to buy something from the same company and they do not stock numerous models. We have been into our local Sony Centre and viewed the 36" Sony and liked it very much. I have to admit though that the picture on the Philips (when good) is truly excellent and I did not think the Sony matched up to it. Apart from the pixelisation problem, I have no complaints about Philips. Am I going to be disappointed with the Sony or the Toshiba? Any feedback would be gratefully received - especially from someone who has knowledge of the Philips model and then changed to Sony or Toshiba. Haven't got long to make up my mind as they pick the old TV up in soon. Thank you in advance, Tracey PS Have the Sony DAVS880 home cinema (am thrilled with it) so another reason for choosing the Sony TV and do not have to be too fussy about sound as we will play through the HC. Toshiba is a DD so will be better sound I know.
