After spending many hours reading both dedicated threads on the respective sets, I have come down to these two sets. I have a budget of about £1600-1700, and would like to purchase a 40". My uses are Sky HD, Xbox 360, HD-DVD add on, Wii, and in March (fingers crossed) PS3. Got to be honest that I am leaning towards a Samsung due to 1080p over all inputs, HDMI 1.3 (please don't flame me for this), £100 cheaper (when buying from Robert Whyte) and the overscan issue being sorted out via a firmware update. But does the Sony have a better pic when viewing Sky HD? Do I get the Sony hoping that Microsoft release the HDMI lead?? Or do I save up £300 more and get the 40" X-series? Any help would be appreciated!!!
