Going to take the plunge soon, was going for the Sharp 46 XD1E, BUT keep hearing bad reports of banding, but have seen threads about a new model due for release in USA within the next week, and some stores saying the XD1E is now discontinued. Want to know when (if) the new one is going to be available here in UK, how much it's likely to be? and what enhancements will it have? (no banding hopefully). I have looked in some of the huge threads but can't see the answers I'm after. Thanks for helping a noob.
