Thats torn it! Got the missus to give me an almost blank cheque for a new TV - quote "£1200, that cheap" (bear in mind our previous set cost us £2k) So I made a little montage of my shortlist to see which she liked the look of. Well it turns out that she hates all of them except - the Sony 'V'. The one that I don't see any reason spending extra on over the 'S'. Of course the 'S' is "crap" - doesn't like anything with an obvious speaker underneath. The samsung (my current fave) got an amusing response - "whats that big button?" When I mentioned it was the power button, she said " but you spent all that time hiding the cables and everything, why have such a noticable button you hardly ever use?" Fair enough I suppose.
