Great job with this thread! A few comments and opinions:
Folks interested in 1080p inputs and CableCard might also want to see my thread
regarding the lack of 1:1 mapped 1080 and CableCard in the same LCD 42+ inch LCD from anyone so far?
The Sceptre X42GV may not do 1080p 1:1 via HDMI from what I can tell? In fact, many owners have reported that feeding it 1080 from a PC looks pretty bad via HDMI or VGA. I haven't read the entire lengthy thread on it, however.
From what I've seen, the Syntax 747i and 742i are priced with or above the big names (at least so far, perhaps street prices will eventually be much lower?). While they may have some advantages (especially with their scaling/processing) I think it's tough for people to spend that kind of money with a company best known for disposable low-end displays/monitors?
The EyeFi's are tough to recommend over the Westys. Some like the huge metal frame on the 47, but it's a big waste of space and there's little else to like?
Does anyone have any info on the new 57 inch (?) Westy rumored to be coming soon?
Does anyone have any new info on 40-some inch D90 models from Sharp? I realize the D62s aren't even out yet but it would be nice to have CableCard in their 40-some inch models.
There are rumors of a couple of 40+ inch LCDs from Vizio. Does anyone know anything about them yet? Vizio might be in a position leapfrog some of the big guys here?
We have CEDIA coming right up so hopefully lots of the above questions and more will be answered by those who attend?
