New member here, although I've frequented these forums for information off-and-on for several years as a lurker.
I've just sold my old Sony Grand WEGA rear-proj 50" LCD and I'm looking for a suitable replacement in the form of a flat panel LCD, in the 47"-52" range.
My neighbourhood Costco has an excellent price ($1150 CAD) currently for the 52" Philips 52PFL5704D. I haven't seen many reviews of it anywhere; in fact, only one thread on these boards discusses it and it's just a technical question about the LCD's functions.
So far, I've only seen it in action in the store, and my dad owns the next model down (the Philips 47" LCD sold by Dell.ca), which I've used to watch sports and the Discovery channel and I quite enjoyed the picture quality.
I'd like to know if anyone else has any experience with this panel, or recommendations for or against it. Also, any suggestions for alternate panels to look into in that kind of price range (maybe under $1500 CAD) would be appreciated.
