    Hi,
    has anyone seen the new review in the Feb 2005 issue (#290) of the Tosh. yet?
    I didn't manage to pick up a copy today and I'm depsperate to know what they thought of it (not that I judge things solely on reviews :) ), but a great review sure helps sweeten things.

    Thanks.

    That does surprise me I wasn't impressed at all.
    The biggest dissapointment for me was the viewing angle it seemed very small compared to the sagem.
    The sagem's screen is also lot less reflective.
    The PQ didn't seem too great either it didn't look much better than a normal rear proj.

    The sagem blew me away when I first saw it the PQ stood out a mile against all other TV's in the store.
    Where as the Toshiba just blended in with the rest of the sets it was quiet hard at first to identify it.

    I'll have to try and see it again perhaps with a Hidef source.

    The difference is that the Sagem is quite commonly seen showing Hi-def material from a PC. I suspect that this is an arrangement with Sagem. Other sets don't tend to have this facility. I've also noticed that the Sagem is usually placed on a special high-viewing point, to give the best viewing angle. Makes a change from the ritual of crouching down to look at the RPTVs in Currys!
