Thanks for the reply.
I'll explain further why I am curious to see, and hear about the new E2000 models.
I own both a 42" WE610, and the follow up 42" A10. As some of you may already know, they reduced the resolution on the A10 model, as the previous WE610/655 models had a 1366 x 768 resolution.
Upon purchasing the A10 last year, I realized that this slight reduction in resolution seemed to be evident. Or, Sony may have gone a little cheaper on the processing of the picture, either way the picuture of the A10 seems to have some slight weaknesses when compared to the previous higher resolution models. In many ways the A10 is better, but in others it's not.
Particularly noticable is the pasturization on faces, and light skin tones, it seems as if the pixels are just more noticable on faces for some reason. The screen door effect is also more pronounced because of the lower resolution.
So, I realize the new E2000 models are very similar to the previous A10, but I did notice Sony changed the chip size on the LCD panels, and thus I was just curious to see if they somehow tweaked the picture a bit, and brought it back to the better processing of the WE610, and if they'd fixed the pasturization on the light colored faces.
So, thats where I was going with all that.
