I had narrowed down my puchase of a 37" LCD tv to the Toshiba 37CV505B but have seen that Sainsburys have the Toshiba 37xv553DB (which is 1080p) for a similar price. My questions are the following:-

1. Is the Toshiba 37xv553DB the same as the 555DB?

2. Which is the better set for mostly SD viewing with some blu ray/upscaling dvd viewing (I've checked the specs and the 505 seems to have better response times (5ms rather than 8ms and better brightness 500 rather than 480). Are these important?

3. I've found both the 505B and the 505D. What's the difference?

4. Lastly the LG3000 is also available for a similar price. Would you recommend this over the Toshiba(s)?

I'd be grateful of some help!!!:confused:

Just phoned Toshiba - the 37XV553DB is Exactly the same TV as the 37XV555DB but with a silver trim across the bottom of the set.... just so you know ;)
