Sony 37w5500 or Sony 37w5710

Hi All,
Just joined the forum today because I am going to buy one of the above tomorrow.
SONY CENTRE want £949 for the 5710 & 5 Yr Guarentee
AMAZON want £699 for the 5500 & 3 Yr Guarentee

I still have an old CRT and know nothing about LCD!

What advice can you give me as to which to go for.

I've been looking at the 37w5500, however from reading posts on here, the panel on the 37 isn't as good as the panel on the 40w5500. However, it still seems to get decent reviews from other sites I've read and when Asda had it at a ridiculous £400 recently, I was trying everything to find one. Unfortunately failed in my quest! :mad:

I do believe Asda are selling it at £600 now tho along with Sony's 3 year warranty.

From what I've read, the 37w5710 isn't much different to the 37w5500

Got the 37w5710 for £678 price matched with RS and with trade in from John Lewis so 5 year guarantee. No backlight issues at all but SD through a decent sky scart was only ok so I bought a new skyHD box and HD programs as well as blu ray are awesome. Big screen does highlight deficiancies in SD signal though but tweaking does help
