    The LW46G15W. Go to the LCD section and it at the bottom right.

    Surely it has to be 'p' as LCD is progressive not an interlaced display technology?

    Glad to see it actually IS 1080p - finally starting to see these appear.

    What's low about 800:1? You're not comparing it to unrealistic "blown out" figures like 3000:1 are you? Those are always acheived with "Auto Contrast" features which crush the range.

    The Sharp Aquos 45" is 1080p and is £4500.

    I saw one at IFA in Berlin last week and I have to say that I was stunned at the quality. By far the best LCD panel I have ever seen - and believe me there were a lot of LCD TV's at IFA.

    What's the point in 1080p when it will be a long time before anyone will be transmitting that sort of signal?

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Hello,

    the Samsung LW46G15W is sold here in Germany already for about half a year.
    But I think if you really want one you have to hurry, because I have the impression that it is not produced anymore and it is sold until it is out of stock.
    I have compared the picture quality of the Samsung LW46G15W and the Sharp LC-45GD1E in a local Saturn shop. I had the impression that the picture quality of the Sharp is better. A review about the 46" Samsung US-model LT-P468W was confirming the poor picture quality. See here: http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1558,1673408,00.asp

    Regards
    Ariomanus
