To all those sitting on the fence - there's a whole raft of reviews out in the July/August editions of the usual magazines. The consensus seems to be that the new Panasonics - the TX32LXD500 (and the 26" version ) - are the best LCD's ever made. Not a single criticism. HDMI, VGA, component, fantastic blacks, not a hint of grain, not a hint of motion blur or smearing. Yes they're pricey - but they're also more or less perfect. Unless Sharp, Sony or Philips come with something truly amazing between now and November I'll be getting a Panny to usher in the glorious era of XBox 360 and hi def gaming.
