    I was hoping that the Philips LCOS would be the first TV to be close to plasma quality and didn´t suffer from burn in. But they are releasing it with their older chip with a stated contrast of only 400:1, which is not good at all.

    Doesn´t LCOS have a much better pixel fill rate than plasma and lcd?

    450 cd/m2, how bright is that compared to most CRT´s. Plasmas go upt o 800 and large LCD´s about 550?

    It will be interresting to see if it has rainbows.

    I hope they are releasing two models, one without the pixelplus and digital natural motion(which IMO are worthless).

    Convergent didn´t like the looks if this TV at all at CES. Hopefully they will uppgrade to the 1000:1 chip quickly, and hopefully get rid of the hotspots that convergent noticed at CES. Then maybe I have finally found a display that is worth buying.

    I'm also very much interested in this set.
    I think we have to see the picture quality with our own eyes. This will give the definitive answer to your questions.

    Until then... not very much to talk about.

    However, I guess the sets sold in Europe might have the panels coming from the new factory in Böblingen, Germany. This facility is supposed to go live in the summer. Of course, I may be wrong.
