We originally ordered the 2004 Model of the Philips 32'' Widescreen, but opted to return it in favor of this brand new model from Philips. This one is simply perfect. It is much lighter weight (more plastic, less steel around the edges), is all screen and less casing, and has a fantastic picture. Simply perfect for watching movies.
We signed up for Amazon Prime and got free 2 day shipping for a year(what a deal).
The original order of the 2004 Model of the Philips did arrive damaged from UPS. The box was a mess and was clearly retaped. We accepted the delivery (our mistake) and then realized that Amazon doesn't accept returns on large TVs. They made an exception for us since UPS caused the damage and it was documented in the UPS case. So, we were able to return and a few weeks later we ordered this TV as a replacement. However, take care and read the Amazon return page on wide screen TVs.
