It really sounds like the V is the XBR 'like' 46 inch beaut. The big surprise it that I didn't think the V would be 1080p, this is great news.
So...the V has the look I love (I believe) the specs I adore (1080p) and 2 x HDMI.
Hmm...this leads me to ask, what are the technical differences between the V and X then? I initally thought Sony were holding onto the 1080p for he X model, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
Could it be that the only differnence between the V and X is in the packaging? Is that why the X is being called the XBR2, as you detail?
Lots of questions...any comments?
