    Toshiba has 2 HDMI slots, Sony looks nicer. Also Toshiba is 2" bigger and comes with a stand.

    Apart from that, which one would you go for, say if price was not matter.
    I have only seen the Sony in action so far.

    Seems you're just looking for a reason to buy the Sony: two of the things you pointed out were in favour of the Toshi, while only style is in favour of the Sony.....
    If you prefer the Sony, then go for it. You sure won't be dissatisfied! :hiya:

    Pic quality is the most important though!

    That's more than obvious, but you're not talking about choosing between Sony and Amstrad...
    Sony's Wega engine is an axceptional PQ improvement system and don't forget that the LCD panel of the Sony is the latest generation Samsung panel, with an 8ms response time.
    Once again, I don't think you might be disappointed buying the Sony, although I own myself a 42" Toshiba 58p! (I just did want those extra 2"!!! :D )

    As usual, it depends on the source and on the signal quality. Needless to say, if the source is poor you'll find the picture grainy.....

    Sorry Rob, I re-read my previous post and probably that sounded a bit rude. What I meant is that I've seen this screen in a shop connected with a poor Amstrad DVD player, via composite cable and the picture really looked awful. Later on I saw it connected to a LG player with an HDMI input and...WOW!

    Your sins are forgiven my son.

    It's just that I have a 37"wl56 and I'm passing it on to my brother, the thing I've noticed is that the picture always adds a little grain. I'd just like to find something that isn't grainy...
