Just compared this and the 'V' and was erring towards the 's' (if I go Sony). But the HDMI socket is in the most stupid place ever - top corner on the left. Looking at it, i'm not even sure you could plug in a HDMI cable and route it round the back without it sticking out the side. Its not like a temporary camcorder connection! Anyone got one of these with a HDMI cable connected up? Care to share a picture from the front to see if its visible?
