What to buy? Samsung LE-40M71, Sony KDL-40V2000 or Toshiba 42WLT66P?



Want a new LCD, but can't decide on what to buy.
Samsung LE-40M71, Sony KDL-40V2000 or Toshiba 42WLT66P, which is the best one? Any views, experiences etc?

Going to use it with a computer, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Sony is very good, 2 reviews I read stated the Sony was the top Dog, the Tiger Woods of large LCDs.

I think the Sony is the best looking and very compact for the screen size, takes up no more room than most 37" screen sizes with huge side speakers.

My KDL-40v2000 pretty much died after 2 days, but Id still recommend it, Awesome picture and sound (for those 2 days). The blacks were super dark and the 360 ran amazing with no ghosting at all.

So for the best 40" LCD is the Sony 40V2000. But it has only 1 HDMI. The Samsung LE40M71B has 2 x HDMI and 100mhz processing. The Samsung is rumoured to be released in August.


is there any difference between the Refresh Rate of the Toshiba and Sony? is it important in the decision which one to buy? i have found out that the Sony 40" has 8 ms but i can't find the data for the Toshiba 37"

I had the Tosh, I would say it was nearer 12ms.

It's a clear fight between the Tosh and Sony.

The Samsung new models are not deemed to have improved that much,
