Sony LCD 40 or 46 V or W 4000 or 4500

Currently we have a 32" Wega and we sit 6 to 7.5 foot from it, we want a full 1080p HDTV which will be around 9 to 10 foot from us (nearer wall)

I have a lot of Sony kit, and like their new models.

I have notice the cheap sets are now 1080p.

I started looking when the current best buy was W2000.

Anyway how does V compare to W and W4000 compare to the new W4500, I tried to look in a local Sony centre but the manager rescued the Sales Man so I will NOT be buying there!


3 HDMI - already have 2 and will be getting Freesat HD when a PVR appears

Full 1080P

Thinking of W4500 now - seen one in a Sony centre but the salesman was rescued before I could find much info. I will buy off the internet as I will not give them the trade now.

Just got to sort the size but now worried about clouding and the W4500 thread is too long for me to read.

dont worry much about the clouding as its an lcd issue mainly and it can vary from set to set,and even if at first place it has,it can dissapear over time.About the size now,I think for this distance the 46" is a more ideal size
