Well put my money where my mouth was a just put a deposit down on one of these babies. A good friend who works for Sony has just ordered one for my for an unbelievable price I nearly ripped his arm off So thanks X if you are watching. Gonna take a little while to come through but it will be worth the wait and I am in no rush to take delivery of it anyway as I have to decorate the front room ready for this to take centre stage. Was thinking about waiting for the X series but with prices hitting between £2.5K - £3K for one I am not sure I can warrant that much for one anyway and you can guarantee there is going to be a high demand for these panels when they hit our shores. Now just got to find a decent 5.1 system to compliment the screen and a bracket to fit on the wall. Been thinking about a Media Centre PC to handle all the inputs but need to spec one up first.
