I was ready to pull the trigger a couple of times on the 52XBR4 and I didn't . Now, I am glad I didn't. The 52W4100 looks promising. I am not 100 % sure what are the improvements from the previous except of course, the 120 Mhz , I am not clear about 8 bit , 10 bit -if that is really a big difference and the V.X color but I realize that the floating glass of the XBR will look dated after a few years, and new generations TV's(W's models) , I assume are new and improved and given the choice between last year (XBR) models or this year, is a no brainer. Now, how about the XBR8, I figured because of the backlight, the price will be at least for me, above my budget.
I reads the concerns on the W's some said the W4100 screen was glossy for a LCD, the Logo was annoying , something about a hole, I don't see it on the bezel , so the bottom line, is this the TV?.
I want Bang for Bucks. Father day sales should be appearing soon. Is this the time? I would wait for the Z models but they don't have one in 52's How many are in the same boat?
