cant recommend one on performance but the 40xf355 looks really smart,on "look" it must be the best tv under 1k but that doesnt mean its great,from what ive read tho it seems very good as im looking to buy one,i think the price drop more it just depends how long you can wait.
I bought the 40XF355 from Currys on Boxing Day and was pretty impressed. This is my first LCD so admittedly the only frame of reference I have is seeing other peoples LCDs and plasmas.
Found there was a stuck pixel though (green). Customer services at Toshiba were very helpful and gave me a return code straight away. Their policy for dead (black) pixels is 2 within 1cm in the middle of the screen or 4 around the outside. Because mine was stuck on green only one was enough for a replacement.
