my main use at the moment is for films and games. I have a budget of £3000, and im keen to get the very best i can. im aware philips have some of the best picture technology but im finding it impossible to track down a set locally to view for the 32pf9986 model. And also the reviews ive seen are all by people who are total perfectionists who dont seem to review products in a realistic way, as in 'if i was buying for myself' way. Ao the poor old lcd ranges get critisced for not being as sharp as the £10k plasmas that last 1/3 of the lifespan. As u can tell im primarily interested in the 32pf9986, i need to know from an owner how well it copes with consoles and fast images from films etc also is the response rate that philips print on their website accurate (12ms)? and the contrast 800:1? any other suggestions for a suitable tv are much appreciated.
