the HD turners can't cost more than normal DTV tuners yet the prices are inflated 3x.

it's rather odd that the format for HD freeview has been know for a while & HD freeview has been released in the UK yet they are still selling what are essentially obsolete screens to ppl here.

this release has been delayed so long the the cynic would say it was purposely delayed to sell off all the crap first.

HAHA at xmas i got a Samsung 40" 8 series LED, then split with the misses and she ran off with it i was heart broken.... (about loosing the TV)

But to be honest it must have been fate as, since then ive meet a much nicer bird and sonys bringing this baby out at a price thats on par with the series 8 samsungs, which looked fantastic in the store but i found number of issues at home, issues that were suppose to be worked out in series 7 LED's

YOU ROCK SONY !! no all i have to do is wait for dixons to stock it :)
