Does anyone know where you can find the Sharp in the high street? I've looked at the usual places and I can only seam to find the 42".
My issue is now, I sure the 42" Sharp next to a Tosh 42" WLT66, but the Tosh did look better only thing is the sourse was 1080i via component! And I know, I know, different mobels can differ from size to size.
Before I bought my Toshiba 42wlt68 the Sharp LC42XD1E was on my list as well as the Sony w series and 42wlt66. The reason being that I though a 1080 screen was the way to go. What I found comparing various sets was that whilst 720 sets make a good job of showing 1080 material the reverse is not true. Also beyond 5 feet you just can't see the extra detail on a 1080 screen, motion handling also suffers.
My 42wlt68 cost me more than buying a XD1E but for me it was the right choice I found its performance better in a number of areas.
Thanks for the links but I still cant decide. How pleased I was to see this title thread as its exactly the two I am trying to decide on.
They are both so closely priced, surely 1080p Sharp is the one to go for? Horses for courses I suppose. I think whats eating me is paying for the tosh at a similar price but not getting 1080p. Someone pick for me
