Not surprising really - they both get something out of it... Samsung brand gets shown to lots of eager gamers and Xbox360 gets to demonstrate its HD capabilities... win:win!!GrahamC said:Read somewhere that Samsung are helping with the cost of the advertising budget. Not the same really when you have to pay so MS will use your screen...
bonc said:if Microsoft are willing to be associated with the Samsung, that can only be good and a good indictment on the LCD screen!
regardless of sourcing costs/availability - quality would of been a major factor also, and the Samsung has it bucketloads! - component or VGA gameswise...
na na na, your just jealous it aint your set!
Actually,crazzy kopite said:I was looking at buying the Samsung but I am swaying towards the Hitachi because it has HDMI and DVI coonections along with 2 RGB scart sockets.
Because the Hitachi has HDMI and DVI it means I can connect the 360 and the new sky HD reciever when it comes out. if it only had one connection I would have to keep taking the connector out and putting the one I want to use in. I thought if you keep taking conections in and out like scart for example it can damage the connectors.

Cheers Frusty - i take it you would then send it through an amp of some sort?Frusty said:I think you can get regular stereo sound through your tv speakers with this cable.
However, if you want the real thing, there's also an optical out on this connector
