...Well mine is anyway. Got home from work today, turned it on <bright white light> *POP* some sizzle noise.....and the smell of burnt electronics. Its been acting up for the last year or so, so I've been expecting it. SO I guess I get a new TV for myself for Christmas! I'm just looking at 27" flat screens (not flat panels mind you-don't have that kind of $) Has anyone had bad luck with a Philips? Searching the net, I like the options and the price is right....was hoping to get some input before i commit.
