New JVC models, DR1 - anyone fancy it?

I ask about this new JVC model LCD since it came well reviewed in the What Video Hi Def TV mag and I haven't even seen one in the shops and anywhere else except the web. This is it - JVC Latest | Jan & Feb 2009 | Product details | JVC DR1 series

Just wondering if it is worth considering since there are rumours of a very good picture and the price isn't bad, though a bit expensive compared to other brands. I haven't seen a JVC TV for a while but my friend has seen a 42 inch DS9 which he said was good. I wonder if this new series is as slim in proportion as the DS9? (that was 35mm I think) Spec claims Dynapix processing, eco mode but no mention of 100hz or other panel details such as response times.

Edit: I think the DV1 model has 100hz and is more like the older slim models -
Dynamic Contrast 1,000,000:1
(!) Surely not? Also, 'hand clap function'?
