I went to a local branch of Alders (of all places), and happened to catch a glimpse of the new Sony KLV-L32M1 and immediately fell in love. It seemed to produce the best image quality of the all the LCD machines on show by far - even though the Philips 32PF9986 and another Sharp 32" model (I've forgotten the exact model number), were playing directly feed DVD pictures (these were my previous hot favourites) - and the Sony was at a disadvantage by showing Shrek2 via some shared feed, and it still blasted them fair and square. Now, this forum has been suspiciously quiet about the Sony KLV-L32M1 - perhaps a little too quiet. Have I missed a trick? The price seems to be right at £1700. I know it doesn't have HDMI/DVI etc which I am very annoyed about Mr Sony sir (especially as you gave it to the folks in the Good 'ol US of A) - but I think I can just about live without it. My question boils down to this: has anyone got one up and running. Have any niggles come to light? Would anyone recommend over the obvious competitors e.g. Philips, Sharp & Toshiba? What is it like with those poor Sky/NTL channels?
