That sounds just like the D64U series... although the D64U series has a faster response time(4ms)... I just bought one for 1350 :)

I have a 32 inch Aquos, and a 52 inch as well. The 32 inch I have only supports up to 1080i, but the 52 inch supports 1080p. I play my 360 on the 52 inch and it looks beautiful. My 52 inch is the d62u version, and I have experienced no banding issues that other people have seen with this model. I will keep my fingers crossed. Kinda sucks though, as Im currently waiting for my 360 to come back from repair. I got the red rings of death on it about a week ago.
