I've been reading everybody's posts with interest and I think I'm about ready to buy one of these KDS-55A2000 Sony SXRD sets. Just a couple of issues to solve: 1) Does anybody know of a store near Doncaster that has one on display? Comet Doncaster does not - I've looked and we don't have a Sony Centre. 2) What is the height of the stand? I have the height of the TV but I need the height of the stand to know if the setup will fit under my corner staircase which is where the TV sits. I just want to watch good quality tv, mainly sci-fi, cricket and films on a big screen. I currently have a 3 year old Pio 43" Plasma with Sky HD and I'm very happy but looking for something bigger and newer - the 1080 pixel display attracts me so there will be no scaling. Do you think I'll be happy with the Sony SXRD -v- Pio plasma? I look precisely front on to the TV so there should be no loss of picture on a DLP - will it look bright and clear like a plasma? My main target is picture quality.
