    Does anyone know when/if this set is going to hit UK shores?

    If they already have does anyone have one and what do they think.

    I've seen some stuff over at avs forums and it looks killer - I know the price is :)

    Cheers

    I can't wait for this set with it's 1920 by 1080 screen resolution. Although if you're not looking to buy a tv now, it might be worth waiting til there is any hi-def material to play on it before upgrading. Hopefully prices will have fallen significantly by the (potential) 2006 release of Blu-Ray in the UK, and the start of Sky's hi-def service (also 2006). Obviously if you're looking to buy a set now, this seems more future proof than anything else currently out there.
    Shame I can't afford the £6,500 rrp. Still, a shape of things to come.

    Is this the first tv with the full 1920 by 1080 res to be released in the uk?

    Seperately, why are Plasma tv resolutions generally lower than lcd? :confused:

    It is a good screen, although normal TV will look terrible on there, due to the high resoloution. HDTV will look awesome on it though :)


    I guess LCDs usually have a higher res than plasma, because they were originally designed to be used with computers, which need high resoloution.

    Forgot about that. Another reason not to rush in, but wait for some decent hi-def material.

    Yea. People are better off getting 720p pannels for the next few years. I don't see 1080 coming here for a while yet.
