Cutting a long story short I'm now in a position where I need to consider alternatives to the Philips 9617 and Sony FQ80 32" CRT TV's. I've already had both , but... 1 - Philips 9617 was returned with 'black vertical bars' problem and replaced with a Sony FQ80 2 - FQ80 was returned with loud power supply buzzing and replaced with another FQ80 3 - Replacement FQ80 has the same loud power supply buzz AND a 3mm screen curve. I've now been offered another replacement, but I'm not sure what to go for. Can anyone suggest any alternatives to the above TV's? Is the JVC or Panasonic equivalent any good? I think the design of the Sony FQ80 is fantastic, but it doesn't seem to come without problems, and it's the most expensive model. Any advice would be appreciated, especially from owners of such TV's.
