Hi All,

Need some expert opinions.

I'm looking for my 1st LCD TV something near 40", and having done some research, and seeing as I keep my TV's till they die, it looks like I need to buy something that can support 1080/24P as a minimum spec.

Have been looking at the new x3000 models from Sony, so know they are out there and what they do, but would really like some experience from you all on if there are any serious competitors that support 1080/24P or are about to, and preferably cheaper....

Thanks,

You've got the Samsung M86/M87, did have problems with PS3 Blu-Ray, but a PS3 firmware update sorted that. And Samsung have updated EDID/Firmware

I do like the look of the Samsung, just never sure if it would perform as well as the big guys such as Sony's, Panny, Tosh's etc.

Personally I believe
Sony bravia's are on top
Samsung's are second with little difference

Hmmm sig...slightly biased perhaps?
In the 70's Sony were the best (along with Grundig) but not now.

Intersting I don't see anyone pushing the Toshiba's and Philips, are they not as good?

And this Ambilight business, is it a gimick or does it really enhance the viewing ?

Take a look at the upcoming Toshiba Z series, 42" due out in about 15 days time, it's specs are very similar to the bravia 3000 series but at probhably a grand cheaper!.

The only worry for the Z series is the 24p support. I believe they are doing it differently to how it is normally done.

Wait for revews.

There is no way now that z would not have proper 24Hz support. They are openly claiming 5:5 pulldown ;24Hz->120Hz without motion vector interpolation.
