    Both 36 inch Flat screens

    Both basically equal in price

    Is there any way to test which has a better picture in a store? Set the controls somehow to get the real story? I don't care about the sound.

    thanks

    Rod,

    Consumer Reports tested big screen TVs in the March 2002 issue. They did not test those exact models, however, among the models they did test, the Toshiba 36AF61 had better picture quality than the JVC 36D502.

    Some of the Toshibas are supposed to have serious moire problems, so make sure to look into that. I've read much, much praise for the JVCs. And looking at them, they seem to earn it.
