According to Best Buy, the 580 has a 35,000:1 contrast ratio, etc.
Has anyone heard of this model before?
I knew this one would eventually come out! Lol...
so now there is a 530, 540, 550, 580...
530 - matte screen, no USB wiselink, side speakers, 30k:1 contrast (confirmed not to be 20k:1)
540 - glossy screen, bottom speakers, 35k:1 contrast
550 - matte screen, bottom speakers, 30k:1 contrast
580 - glossy screen, side speakers, 35k:1 contrast
Edit: ALSO, it seems the 580 doesn't come in a 40" size, only 46" and 52" (not sure of bigger sizes)...
