I've got it down to either of these two LCDs ... Sony KDL 40W5500 or Samsung LE 40B650

Any pros or cons on these, the price is near enough the same. Just wondered if there is any tech or performance issues with either one

Thanks any advice appreciated

they are on par, sony has a little bit better scaling, samsung has better SD deinterlacing.

black level on paper the samsung is abit better, but post calibration they are the same.

i think the sony has abit better sound.

but the samsung is sexy and the sony is ugly. i think u cant go wrong with either of these.

The free three-year warranty from Sony was a promotion that ran out at the end of September, so it's not standard any more.

EDIT: Except the Amazon website says it's running till 31 December! I'm confused now...

Apparently its been extended, most retailers are still offering it so that tells me that the amazon site is correct!

I also considered these two, but was put off the B650 by reports of very weak sound.
I have no intention of using an external sound source of any kind, ever.
So the built-in sound is paramount.
For that reason, it would have to be the Sony.
No-one says the Sony sound is great, but they say it's average.
Average is better than the B650's sound.
