    Is there anyone who owns this tv that can let me know what it's like, particularly for gaming?

    well i have the S2030 which almost the same,and my PS2 looks excellent .
    i have yet to try the vga input with my pc but it is 1-1 pixel mapping i believe.

    the 2530 has 2 hdmi's and live colour creation and perhaps slightly better/smoother performance.

    you can buy it for around 550/650 on the net if you look around,
    seems great value to me,personally i would not spend any more as in a few years you may want to buy something else.

    Hi Calcium

    I have the 26inch Version of this tv, the 26S2030 and im really impressed, it won't have quite the same pic quality as the 32 coz its a slightly different bravia engine but its great all the same. I used it as a main pc monitor, usual tv viewing and xbox 360 and ps3 through the hdmi, never lets me down!

    Sony must be having a clear out.....

    Yeah just bought one from ED. Saturday delivery only £15 too. Was gonna wait for the Panasonic LXD700 or maybe even get the LXD70 or the 100MHz Sharp but at this price there is no competition. Even next month I expect those other models to be in the £650-£750 range. Other than the price the deciding factor for me (besides all the reports of buzzing on the Panasonics') is the viewing angle on the Sony...The Panasonic is actually only around 120 degrees (not 178 as stated in their specs) whereas the SONY SPVA panels actually are around 170. Viewing angles are important to me because I often watch TV while cooking in my open plan kitchen, etc.

    Does the s series accept 1080p, and would this look any better than 1080i if the tv downscales it?
