Don't buy it then!
I see what you are saying but for example when it comes to Panasonic TVs I really do think you are just paying extra for a better quality screen, the features don't cost that much. If they did the price would go up each year, when most of the time it goes down.

Thanks for your comments and the welcome - I appreciate it!
Short answer looks like "no" though " title="? " width="17" height="16" class="smiley-class smileysProcessed" />
Anybody got a good reason why I shouldn't just pop down to the shops for a Sony KDL-55HX853 then? (other than maybe waiting a month or so to see if the price drops as the new range comes in)
Have you considered a projector and a pull-down screen?
More reliable than a TV? Probably.
Excellent pic? Yes.
Bells and whistles? No.

Hi Mr Replicant (trying not to be overly familiar, as a newbie...)
To be honest, I do quite fancy a projector and screen and have considered it, but the layout of the room and other practicalities mean it's a bit of a non-starter unfortunately.
I think I'll have a look at the 2013 reviews tomorrow and see what the craic is.
For me the Philips tv's have the best picture quality , I have been to a few WHFI sound and vision shows and always prefered the Philips screens for vibrant great detail over the othe competition . Ive had a panasonic plasma (old school 42pz70b) and couldnt live with it . Sorry but Panasonic tv's may have good blacks but are to dull for my personal preference,
