    Hi,
    Luckily for me working for Barco lets me get my hands on the latest kit.
    Barco just launched two new LCD panels. 42" & 47" running at Native HD resolution. (1920 x 1080)
    I'm biased but I plummed it into my Sky + box at home just using S-Video and it was awesome.
    Its totally fanless so ultra silent and didn't give off much heat at all, even though I left it on all night. Its the next generation of LCD screens. My advice would be to wait for it. I will be. It should be shipping from October.
    Here's a link if you want to see it. www.barco.com/projection_systems/downloads/BCD_bro_lc_l.pdf.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the info, do you think the prices will be next generation as well, or do you see prices coming down compared to the Sharp 45"?

    Not sure how much the Sharp version is, but the 42" will List at £4,165.
    I'm only giving my opinion as Barco haven't made LCD Panels before and its the 1st time I've used on at home. I am excited about it. I took it to show some AV Consultants, and had a great response. They should know.

    ...and it actually accepts 1080p! Although there's no mention of HDCP compatibility. :(

    37,42,45,46,47' panels have got the solution of 1920*1080, and it's also called full-hd panel. But it sounds expensive in UK, in Asia, for instance, I am from China, 42' inch is charge for RMB 19,999(1pounds is equal to over 10 RMB).

    If you have a 47' LCD, s-video is really a waste. I suggest you use HDMI, that is best.

    Hey Ashgadget,

    Going by the information in your post a few months ago, you've had a chance to trial one of Barco's new LC panels. Assuming you've now had it since September, can you give us an update on how you now rate the panel, and if you've tried any other video sources with it?

    Cheers.

    Hi,
    I see you quoted a list price for the 42" panel but what are the prices of the rest of the range?
