Has anyone noticed while watching a Blu ray movie that when you hit the "display" button on the w900's remote it will show "12 bit"? I noticed this the other day while watching Pacific Rim. Does this mean the W9 has a 12 bit panel? Or is this something my Sony BDP S6200 is out putting while playing a movie? Im a bit confused about this so if anyone may have an answer I would like to hear about it.

I called the outlet store to hold the TV longer for me, as couldn't get there at lunchtime, and I asked if they could move on the price, but they can't. I'm going to go back later and make a decision.

the 12 bit is the deep color bit depth that the w9 supports. And when you connect a device that supports deep color it shows the 12 bit. Here is link on deep color

Not sure how I feel about spending £640 on the smaller 46W9 when I can get a 50W7 for less (delivered though, not local pickup).
Talking about raw picture/video performance, the W9 absolutely has the edge, period. Whether-or-not one can make the distinction, that's another question. The are HiFi stereo-boxes for $1000 and for $10'000, for some it makes the definite difference, for some others they all sound the same. Who can tell what-is-worth-what-extra-money, and what-is-not? There is no general rule, it's just a matter of personal threshold-of-sensitivity. For some it matters, for some it doesn't.

Put like this: If someone offered me to take my W905's away (have both the 46" and the 55"), give me the full money back, and instead put a free 50W7 in place ... I'd say "No!" without even thinking, and rather keep my W905's.

Anyone willing to sell me their base stand? I just purchased a display model from bestbuy without a base stand.
