    Hi all. Could I kindly get some feedback on the following HDTV 34" widescreen units:
    Panasonic 34WX53
    Toshiba 34HFX83
    Toshiba 34HF83
    Philips 34PW8520
    Philips 34PW9819
    JVC AV-34WP84
    I am replacing an old 36" Mitshubitsu TV in a family room, which mostly my children watch. There will be no AV unit, only a DVD player and a HDTV receiver. I already have HD satellite and OTA TV antenna operational. Another room in my home is the media room and I have a 50" plasma with 8 speaker surround sound and HD.
    The units above are the only ones which fit into an existing built in.
    The only reviews I find are by buyers. The feedback seems to give Panasonic good marks, Toshiba good marks and JVC fair. I find little on the Philips unit.
    So before I blindly purchase, I would appreciate any comments on the merits or cons on these units, suggestions, firsthand knowledge, etc. Are the Toshiba 34HFX83 and the Plilips 34PW9819 worth the additional expense.
    Thanks so much for the anticipated responces in advance.
    And Happy Easter!

    I just bought the Toshiba 34HFX83 and it's an amazing improvement on my old set, a 46" Hitach RPTV. Both over the air tv programs and dvd's look greatly improved.
