    On Sony's comparison site the only thing the 40W2000 has over the D3000 is that its reso' is 1920x1080. The D3000 is 1366x768

    What does this mean exactly ??
    Will it make much difference to a non-LCD buff who doesn't really look for the imperceptable differences ??

    Any help would be gratefully received !!

    thanks

    The difference is not huge.The advantage of 1080p is crearly visible only on pc use and little on blu ray-HD gaming!!!The D3000 also has 100Hz,10bit panel and 24p compatibility.Also W2000 has serious clouding!!So D3000 is a better tv!!

    ..so the 100hz is going to give me clearer, crisper images when watching fast-frame stuff like football etc etc..

    ..and the actual reso' of the panel doesn't really matter when it comes to playing my xbox 360 through the HDMI connector anyways?

    cheers for replying to this and my other thread :clap:

    Not sure I would agree with this - clouding on the W2000 was only a problem on a minority of sets apparently, and having closely observed both sets side by side with a range of inputs (HDTV/SDTV/Blu-Ray/PS3), my opinion is that the W2000 at 1080p was much better than the D3000 for HDTV (especially footie), blu-rays and games, and to be honest, not much difference between them for SDTV (incl footie). I'd go for the W2000, especially as you can get it for £900. Just my opinion.
