    Hi Folks,

    I've actually phoned Philips to ask this question and they didn't know. Of course, I was talking to Customer Services;). I've seen a review of the 32" version which is now, apparently, available.

    Anyone have any idea when to expect the 36"? I've been tasked with the job of buying a new TV for my elderly father and I've already bought an original 36" Pixel Plus set for my Mother which is excellent and I'm sure the new version will be even better.

    Cheers,

    jah

    Not this year I'm afraid (according to Philips' brand new 2004/2005 catalog. The only Philips 36" is the 36pw9309 (a 9308 with movie pluss)

    That's a real shame. Is the model number that you quoted, 36pw9309, the latest 36" Pixel Plus? I'm a little confused about the model numbers and the Philips website hasn't been properly updated apparently.

    Regards,

    As a dealer I got a dealers plan for Philips 32 and 36" tv's.

    Here are the new modells and spec:
    (Only 100 hz TV's, I don't describe the 50 hz tv's)

    36/32/28pw8719
    *100 hz digital scan
    *Real flat
    *Digital Crystal clear

    32pw9768
    *FlexTV (HD recording)
    *Pixel plus and movie plus
    *Digital natural motion
    *Real flat

    36pw9308
    *Same as 32pw9308

    32/28pw9309
    *Pixel plus and movie plus
    *digital natural motion
    *active control + light sensor
    *digital crystal clear

    32/28pw9509
    *Pixel plus 2
    *movie plus
    *digital natural motion
    *active control + light sensor

    I had a mistyping: 36pw9308 not 36pw9309... sorry...

    Hi torkelom,

    Thanks for the info. However, you don't mention the 36PW9618. What is the difference between that and the 36PW9806? I find the models very confusing and there's no info on the Philips website on some of them.

    Cheers,

    jah

    When the 9986 LCD-32 37 and 42 were announced to be released in May this year I enquired with a senior marketing manager at Philips about Pixel Plus 2 36" CRT TV's.
    He replied that only 28" and 32 " TV's would be available in PP 2 version-no 36" would be made.
    LCD and Plasma were the future.

    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for the info. I'm really disappointed to hear that! However, it justifies my decision to get a 32PW9509 for my Father. I can't really justify trying to persuade him to fork out thousands for an LCD or plasma. I suspect, though, that the prices of LCDs and plasmas will plummet over the next year if the choice of large screens becomes limited to them.

    Cheers,

    jah
