    I would go with the 656a the new toshes 420 & 520 I think are based on LG boards I think. recieved this comment from MultiRegionMagic Today.

    "At last we have had a play... we set it up on our new Panasonic projector on to 2.5m wide screen .. connected via component .. at first the picture looks good, plenty of detail, not too much noise .. but the blacks just aren't black enough if its a dark scene !"

    Another vote for the 656a. Only had mine for a few days, but it has been excellent so far, with both movies and music.

    And there's a Power Buy running on them, so what are you waiting for? :)
