(xpost from the other thread, didn't see this thread before)
Just bought one of these today as a replacement for an E601i-A3 that had the video loss problem.
First thoughts -- out of the box, this thing is THICK. Fully three times as thick as the E601i. Other than that, though, no negatives that I can see.
During daytime watching with the defaults -- first off the auto brightness is turned on by default and makes the screen looks completely washed out. Turning that off instantly brings the set into a reasonably watchable state of tune. With that, the image is much improved from the E601i. Significantly more vibrant and sharper, plus the backs seem much blacker (I noticed this seeing the side bars on an HD channel with an SD commercial).
Overall, I'm impressed so far. I'd like to hear other's opinions and/or see links to real reviews.
Side benefit -- same remote control commands as the E601i, so no reprogramming necessary.
