I cannot decide on these two. My main viewing at the moment is Sky non HD, but will move up to HD soon. I have a large DVD collection and want the best overall performance from this media. I am very interested in a Blu Ray player as I hope to get even more from my favourite movies. Motion blur and backlight issues have always put me off LCD's, but after looking at the Sony recently, I was impressed. Basically I want the best inky blacks, smooth motion, high contrast and true colour for a 40-42" display for under a grand.
