I could never understand why televisions are grey/silver instead of black. You never get a projection screen with a grey border. My Panasonic 36PF-10 is five years old and has a few scratches on the case. I have just got some black paint and given the case a coat. Both the set and the picture look better to my eyes, although if it was a brand new set I would have been a bit nervous about doing it. Why are televisions grey/silver anyway?
