Have been considering getting the Samsung for a while now but was suprised to see that the Sony is only approx £150 more now. I have little chance of seeing them in a side by side comparison and was looking for peoples views on the pros and cons of each. Would love the Panasonic LXD500 but £1000 is a bit out of reach at the mo. Also the latest JVC DS6 although I read on here that it wasn't at its best when used as a PC monitor. As for use, the majority of the time it will be for my Xbox 360 (when it arrives), with a fair bit of Freeview use also. As it will be connected to my PC it also needs to be competent when used as a monitor. Any thoughts??
