    Seems like Sony will start using Sharp's ASV LCD panels in TVs. They have officially announced a joint venture with Sharp to build a 10G LCD plant.

    Of course Sharp uses their own panels but Philips uses these in their high-end TVs as well.

    Clever decision by Sony? Maybe we will only see the ASV panels in the high-end, large Sony LCD-TVs?

    Just shows how one has to treat these press reports with a pinch of salt. Panasonic is not a big consumer of LG panels as it makes its own LCD 32/37" IPS-alpha panels and promotes plasma for larger displays. I am not sure what they use for their 26" panels however.

    LG S-IPS panels are used extensively by Toshiba and Philips.

    Sony uses CMO panels for sets ranges from 19" to 22". They also use panels from other manafactures too.

    PS: AUO's MVA is very good, and found in most of Sony sets

    They source panels from LG to use on their 26" range (with TN) and on low-end 32". They also use LG and panel from various other manufactures to use on their 19" sets.

    I really wish LG would start manufacturing e-IPS panels to use on HDTVs.

    CMO panels are cheap, yeah. And in my opinion P-MVA panels from AUO are not as good as ASV and S-PVA.

    I think the issue with the S-IPS from LG.Display is the black level. But maybe a local dimming S-IPS would be great?

    Which Sony sets has ASV panel at the moment?

    32" and 42". 37" may also contain ASV.

    PS: AUO has moved on from the old P-MVA. Most of their current range is 3rd generation A-MVA, which is similar to the current gen S-PVA.

    Hi John

    I remember reading several months ago that Sony were teaming up with Sharp and ditching Samsung with the manufacture of LCD panels. But these were the large LCD panels.

    I think The S-LCD Corporation of Samsung/Sony is still going with the manufacture of panels for small/medium size of screens.

    Yeah, the Dell 2209WA with e-IPS seems interesting. Hopefully these cheaper IPS panels will be popular. I haven't seen other monitors with the e-IPS panel yet, though?
