So do you want to do the DVDT review or me??

I'm going to be too busy rewatching things on it for now Was thinking about it though but given it's nearly end-of-line the boat has probably already sailed.

Still tempted though

Its such a great feeling though. When you spent a vast amount of money and you end up with a product that gives you so much pleasure. Being from the plasma TV genre its nice to see a stunning picture in LCD form. Colin - is that HD proof as well?

I'm pretty sure it is - not really up all the HD stuff but has DVI and component inputs and the resolution definitely is up to HD standards.

Well, at the end of the day the picture looks pretty damn good for now anyway

Thanks for sharing the pictures, time to look into the world of LCD.

That's a nice set mate. Almost as good as a properly set up plasma.

After alot of deliberation and reading numerous reviews & web sites, I today decided to go for the Philips 32PF9976. This will be my first LCD so not really sure what to expect. I will post pictures when it arrives.

Well it looked a bit brighter in one corner so I cleaned the screen. On cleaning the screen the screen moves in and clicks at the bottom and top right.

I can't get black to look particularily black (even with the backlight off!) and theres quite a bit of digital noise on all sources whether moving or static.

It may be duffer but I'm not so sure.

Sounds like a duffer especially the corner thing.

Give a replacement a go.

Where do I go for product reviews? Just been looking at the Toshiba 27WL46B and looks alright for my 'Minema'.

hi guys, lots of interesting information on LCD's on here. Im now (well ok its my bro) in the market for an LCD tv. Bro wants to get something a bit smaller tho due to space and budget issues so we are looking at the 17" tv's. I know most of the discussion here has been in regards to larger screens but i figure lots of people are going to be looking for smaller tv's.

The one we;ve seen at the moment is
the Philips 17PF9946 17''

which in on-sale at a couple of online retailers ie play and empiredirect
heres the link to it at play.com which has more information about spec
http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page...C&title=515524
what do people think? seems quite good to me, lots of nice features and seems to be a good spec.

My parents have this set and are very pleased with it. Ive always felt Phillips tvs look over processed myself.
Best to view it before you order it online m8. I viewed my Goodmans 26" next to all the other current 26/27" models and it had the best picture for me..black IS black on this set was also the cheapest. You carnt beat a good viewing

ColinP, what is it like watching with your front L/R channel speakers both to the right of the set, if you get what I mean?

This set up would be the most sensible for my room but I didn't want to try it off the cuff as all my cables are under the carpet and this is a lot of hassle to experiment with

Anyone know if the Samsung LW32A33W is a good LCD.

Saw one today (stupid price of £2300! but can be had for £1500 online). Was quite impressed but need to see it on a DVD source.

Can't find a replacement Toshiba 32WL48 for love nor money

I don't use them for TV watching as a rule, but when I occasionally do, it's not too bad - I don't really notice.

I tend to watch 95% of my DVDs through the projector so that's the reasoning behind having my speakers where they are
