Great review! What kind of panel is used in this screen? TN Film, IPS, VA etc...


I understand these panels techs are commonly used in PC monitors, how is it with LCD TV's do they use the same technology. Sorry if this is a stupid question. And excuse my rubbish english. I'm from Norway. *smiles*

I've had one of these sets for the last couple of months and I think this is a very fair review of this set. I've no regrets buying mine, it is excellent, in my opinion.

Max Power, I realise it has been awhile since you commented here but can you directe me to a source that these TV's sport S-IPS panels? It is kind of "too-good-to-be-true" for me as for many years Sony have been using S-PVA panels. Can you please confirm this information?


Thanks!
