    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.

    I think the D92 series is the new LC-xxGSxx range. these were released, in 32"-46" sizes in Japan on 22/12/2006, and will be presented at CES in a couple of days time. Projected price is about US$2400 upwards which will probably become £2400 once our beloved chancellor has finished taxing it.

    No, the US D92 series equates to the forthcoming HD1E series which we're likely to see in the Spring, hopefully sooner but I doubt it. Its discussed fully here: http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=442453

    My apologies! :blush:

    So we currently have the XD1e, the HD1E is on its way, and so is the LC-GS range... And that's just from Sharp. And glossing over the other ranges already available. I read on the US forum - avsforum - that changes and updates are coming thick and fast. Certainly fast enough to confuse me!

    AFAIK thats just for Japanese consumption and I doubt we'll be seeing these models in Europe at all. It's not unusual for Sharp or any other manufacturer to produce extra series just for the domestic asian markets.

    First of all there is no confirmation (other than speculation) that the D92 will become the HD1E, or even if the HD1E will be released in the UK.
    Hell the D92 hasnt even been announced in the US yet.

    I guess it will appear in time but I think theres alot of people getting ahead of themselves in a few threads here :)
