I have Samsung 29" SlimFit..little older than what you are currently looking at. It depends on what you need the TV for...if for gaming I will strongly suggest against buying it. All the Slim/ultra slim TVs will have picture geometry issues. Mine has too but I dont it use it much for gaming so I can lier with it. But on the plus side the color rendering is very good (in Movie mode). I just love to watch HBO on it. LG/Videocon will be cheaper but I don't like their picture quality but for Videocon and LG after sales service is very very good. What other brands are you considering minus Philips (very poor after sales service) ?
