the technical specifications in philips website show the supported resolutions max as 60Hz. it was supposed to 100 hz. isn't it so. does anyone know why is it so?
Those are the input video formats that this TV supports (the formats that it can accept as inputs and then display). A 100Hz TV will display any of this sources at 100Hz refresh rate.

MRP Quoted was 24,990/- .... Got it for 21k.. less 5,700 for my old TV = a net price of 15,300/- Inclusive of all taxes and levies!!!! Bought it from the Philips Arena here.

YIPPIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Will give all of you my views after soaking it in for a week or so!

Thanks one and all!!
kb100, your review on this set please? Also about additional accessories (DVD, speakers) that you have hooked up? Thanks.

There is a 25inch BPL in home. BPL has desecnt picture quality, but their speaker are poor. Have no idea about other brands like thompson etc.

I do have a 2 floor speaker aided HT setup. So not really bothered about TV which come with those funny big boom speakers in their rear. TV speakers should be good and they will be used only for normal programs. DVDs and xbox will be taken care by the HT setup.

Need suggetion to choose a good one. Please keep them coming. Thanks

My 12 year old BPL FHR TV speakers are giving trouble and thinking of exchanging it with a Samsung / Philips or a Panasonic after going through this thread.

Howz the After sales service for these 3 brands in Delhi ?

I would want to go for either 25 or 29'.

Only sony is available in 25". Get a 26" LCD if space is a big constraint.

Have a 14 year old Samsung 29" TV and it is on it's last legs now. Before it goes completely kaput - I would want to exchange it with a slim TV - (NO LCD for now). It will be used exclusively in the bedroom.

I am looking at spending anything around 10,000/- INR excluding exchange.

A 25" will also do fine for me. What choices do I have with the best features ? I will use it with a Hathway STB. I watch Sports channels, movie channels and news channels mostly.

I am inclined more to the Samsung brand as I have a huge showroom right under my residence. (lazy bones).

Also do these big stores like Vijay Sales / Croma actually have lower prices ? And what about exchange offers ? How much should I expect for my old TV ?

@ NC,
Do not go for ultra-slim unless space is a real constraint, which I don't think should be in your case because you are replacing an old 29 incher.
Ultra-slim's PQ is said to be little inferior to normal Flat TVs.
I've seen Philips bundled offer with 29" TV + DVD HT system selling for around 14K (or was it more? don't remember exactly). But you should be able to get only 29" TV under exchange for ~10-12K.

Dpn't go close to the slim CRT ones. The distance between the tube and the CRT gun is reduced and this compromises the picture quality. It's less sharper as the distance to focus is lesser and there are colour aberrations across the screen as well.

No avoid Samsung from what little experience I have of owning a 29 inch slim flat TV it surely ain't that good in terms of sound and video quality( what else is left then ? ) ). Buy a Sony Trinitron WEGA and you won't regret your choice. Quoting good friend and fellow BHPpian fuelled
"Trinitron is the best thing that you can get in a CRT Period."

Having personally experienced the same ( Do you think I actually kept the samsung ?) I can surely vouch for its audio and video quality.
