    Looking at getting a 32" widescreen soon but not sure which.
    Most of the tv's I have seen seem to have complaint but if they sell a lot then you are going to get some complaint. Any way heres 3 I have seen and like the look of, but which one to pick?
    Tell me which one you think I should get and suggest other tv's if you think they are worth considering pls. If you have one of these tv's pls give me your feeling on it

    I was just about to post this, but saw your post any chance of tacking along ?

    Having followed the messages over a number of weeks, I have taken the plunge as
    it were ! Sorry to jump straight in with a question but my old 28” Toshiba is about to go
    t8ts up, and my wife i putting me under pressure for a new TV for xmas, bah humbug.

    This is the situation I dont need anything for sound, Yam Dsp E800, Rotel amp for
    center & front speakers, Gale gold front, denon rear, yam sw205 sub, qed silver, jm lab
    centre, pioneer DV343 dvd.

    I know this question gets asked so much but I am torn between the following
    Tosh 32ZD26p
    Philips PW9308
    Sony 32FX68

    Any comments on these. I would really like the Tosh 36ZP38 but have been really put off
    by the comments, it sounds that for the money no one is really happy with any of the 36
    inch screens.

    Regards

    I'm of the opion that the 36" sets are still relatively immature in design so will prob go for 32" myself.

    Sony FX68 / Tosh 32ZP38 / JVC 32P37 are top of my list right now.

    I have a 36" Tosh (ZD26) and am very happy with it, as the saying goes the bigger the better

    Just looked through old threads and also tried to price up the 3 32" contenders.

    Sony KV32FX68
    Best deal I found, John Lewis price match with TotalDigital for £715 or £745 if they add delivery. JL give 5 year guarantee and were giving a free DVD player, but that has finished.

    Toshiba 32ZP38 Dealtime £1079

    JVC 32P37 Around £900

    To me it seems like the deal on the Sony puts it ahead. I'd appreciate any views or suggestions of better deals.

    Regards

    Currys have the Sony KV32FX68 as a web special at £813 if that's any use.

    I'd still be grateful for any other views on the best deal for a 32". At the moment the Sony KV32FX68 price match for £745 at JL looks my best bet, but I'd love some reassurance that this is the best deal, especially as the free DVD player is no longer available.

    Hi Fella's

    Mmmm, "immature", IMHO I dunno about that. I've had three 32" sets in the past four years, a Sony, a Panny and a Tosh (all good sets in their own right) and in the past month I've had two 36" sets. Aside from the probs experienced with the first 36" (a Tosh), I would NEVER go back to 32". The 36"ers blow them away:eek:

    Anyway, hope you all get one sorted:smashin:

    Dog-rat,

    That seems a very good price for the Toshiba. I'd just about settled on the Sony, because it seemed cheaper.

    Could you post details of the deal and why you went for the Tosh rather than the Sony?

    Any other suggestions also greatly appreciated, I need to sort out a new tele before Christmas.

    Thanks

    Reflex:)

    I am the owner of the 8717 model. The 8718, is Philips later version. I can say that the Pic. is great. Will surely not change for anything else, not even with any of the Virtual High Res display around. The pic is cristal clear and as intended to be (no extra processing fiddling with the Pic.), the only processing going on, on this TV is 100Hz, DNR, DC and Digital Scan (When all is enabled except for 100 Hz which is on all the Time) Any short Falls? Yes only 2 SCARTS 1 only RGB (but solved bought a good quality Scart box) and the usuall Philips Black bar (does not manifest itself on EXT1,2 but you will surely see it on the front input).

    I have looked around for much too long, and have decided to go for this model. At that time of buying, Sny. Tv's had the buzzing prob., comming out from the transformer, Phil. Tv (PP models were plagued with processing Probs. PLUS Black Bars on Ext 3 and 4) and Pannys werent a match with the rest in the 100hz field!

    Is the JL price match an in-store offer only, or do they offer it on the net as well?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Dog-rat

    Now I really can't make up my mind. I like the look of the Sony, but the Toshiba does look a good deal.

    I buy a TV about every 10 years, so I'm a bit out of my depth here. Which would experienced members suggest is the best?

    Regards

    I have just bough the Sony 32FX68 - very pleased with it, great picture, no buzzing, looks great too. Complements my Panasonic SCTH900 home-cinema all-in-one nicely.

    Good luck
    Paul
