    The resolution is the only good feature at present surely?

    no doubt within a year or so the brigthness and contrast will be a match for todays Plasmas, but then of course todays Plasmas will be old hat and tomorrows will be even better, isn't it fun this leaps and bounds technology lark? LOL

    Any price yet?

    I suspect it will fall into the "HOW MUCH?!?!" price bracket.

    that's great for having a huge PC screen
    but it will be interesting to see how all that resolution deals with SD signal, because so far even lower resolution LCDs have very poor interpolation results.
    response times are all about how you count them. I wouldn't get too excited until some people have seen it in action.

    Very good point deman77, but, with the new iScan HD (with us end of next week) being able to send out 1080P, and if the response times are anything to go, by this could be quite a result for those with deep pockets!

    Of course from an average viewing distance i'm not sure that that many people could see the difference between a 1080 line display and a 720 line one....
