    got to be philips if my experience is anything to go by.
    had 2 of jvc with 6mm tilt. there is no tilt adjustment. also rgb is quite dull. both went back. also covergence better on philips.
    have had the philips for nearly a couple of weeks (from comet £459 inc delivery) and it is fantastic. would definately recommend.


    as a comparison:

    jvc philips
    sound nicam stereo,ok. 6/10 dolby virtual+n/c stereo 9/10
    scarts 3/1rgb 2/1rgb
    tilt control no yes
    picture excellent exp rgb 8/10 excellent 10/10
    looks 10/10 9/10

    hope this adds to your confusion about what to buy:rolleyes:

    Quite weird that, you've narrowed your choice down to the same 2 that I did a few weeks ago :) Anyway, I decided to go with the philips and am very happy with it. We went around to a couple of shops to see what the people working there thought was the best and all said the philips. :cool:

    Thanks Rich, it's looking like the Philips then...

    Also Rich or Chegz how well does the Philips handle 4:3 material?

    Cheers

    www.hispek.co.uk were advertising the Philips 6515 for £419.99 in HCC a while ago but the price is higher on the website so dont know which one is right!
    I also looked at a Samsung the other week in Comet and was quite impressed,it wasnt very good in 4:3 but most everything else seemed okay to me and it was only £449 ,dont remember the exact model number though.
    I went around all the shops looking for a 28"w/s and eventually settled on my first choice the Sony KV28LS35,didnt pay Currys/Comet prices though,I've got mine coming for £495.

    4:3 is very good on my set. it is also possible to enlarge on all picture modes except widescreen.

    Thanks chegz and smallman!

    I have just been to town to look at the TVs ...

    Now seeing them the flesh I really don't like the JVC, it just looks a bit cheap and plasticy also the double frame makes the screen look smaller than it is. Also I noticed how dull the picture was.

    The Philips on the other hand looked really nice and the screen seemed a lot bigger than the JVC (even though it probably wasn't - but perception has a lot to do with it!).

    So it looks like I've decided

    Thanks for your help guys! :)

    Cheers
