I purchased a JVC 32D302 a couple of months ago and just recently noticed a sticker taped to the side of the picture tube(it was bright orange, noticed it through the side air vents when reconnecting my DVD)that read "Made by LG Electronics Korea". I have a Zenith tube in my Japanese TV? I just though that this was interesting since JVC has excellent reliability ratings and Zenith is still considered poor. Other than Zenith, I do not think that LG even sells a tube in the US. This set nonetheless has an excellent picture, although the black screen reflects alot of light in the room.
