    Oh no, more technology for us to lose sleep over! I've just picked up What Plasma & LCD mag (there are reviews of the Hitachi 32LD7200, Samsung 32A41B and the Viewsonic 2750) and there's news of two new display technologies due to arrive over the next year or so.
    OLED ( I recall reading about this about 3 years ago) displays are bright, have a contrast range of 5000:1 and do not suffer from lag or blurring. No backlight either.
    SED is more akin to plasma. Both promise very slim panels and are HDTV-capable. Both are in early production form right now.
    There's also news of Motorola's new Carbon Nanotube display, which (they say) could lead to the production of very cheap panels.
    Aaargh! There's me winding meself up for a nice Panasonic 26lxd500 LCD and now this..... :confused: I wish I could hibernate for a year!

    Mooseepoo -

    Samsung 32A41B ratings: Pic 4/5, Sound 4/5, Socketry 3/5, Features 4/5, Ease of use 5/5 and VFM 4/5.
    Comments:"DNIe adds texture and detail without exaggerating noise"
    ".. can look sublime with high quality sources, but rather average on SD"
    "With an HD feed, colours are luminous... skin tones natural"
    "Though pictures are impressively bright, this didn't affect the black response"
    "... but with Sky Digital and analogue feeds noise increased and motion blurred. Detail plummeted and colours looked forced. It was like a different set"
    "If HD and DVD are your main interests, this set is ideal for the future... but what about the present"

    Sounds like they actually like it, but it doesn't like present-day TV.

    Mine too, Seka. What could be simpler than millions of LED's? No fancy liquids or electron streams, no backlights or high-voltage circuitry. Can I wait any longer... some of the LCD pics I'm seeing right now are superb, but the promise of new stuff just around the corner is enough to make you pull your hair out! :eek:
