    LCD performance is improving all the time, but they still can't compete with the best plasmas on contrast and black levels. Response times can still be a problem on some of the slower LCD panels.

    I too like the look of this although I've only seen the 32 in the flesh. One of the guys on here has one on order and hopefully we'll finally have a proper review soon. Can't tell you how much it's winding me that you can't get a straight opinion on this lcd.

    It would be nice to know if it suffers from the same issues as the 32". It would be nice to know how it compares against the PS42S5H(X) 42" Sammy plasma.

    There are some reviews of the 40 but they are IMHO hard to find and they refer to the american version (LN-R408D) eg small consumer review here . I am really trying to get somewhere with this. It may end up with me buying one blind and then hoping it's up to scratch.

    I'll get there or :suicide:

    sorry, confused ur post about pv500!!! :S

    im too very tempted to buy the sammy. really want a high def screen under 2k, but really not at home with the aesthetics of the pv500. Would love sammy technology with panasonics stability with phillips styling (inc ambilight). is that too much to ask for!
