I think our model for here in Taiwan will have a NTSC tuner, but it will not support 1080p over component. Maybe not enough bandwidth, I am not sure. I'd bet it will over DVI, but I'm not sure at this point. The 32" version is very nice with independent color controls and noise filtering that does wonders for our crappy cable here in Taiwan. The only LCD I've seen that was better IMO was a Philips, but it's 1K more here and not that much better. I may be able to get a 40% discount on flat panels, so I haven't made up my mind what to get yet. I am considering the coming Pio 436, the BenQ 32/37", or a 42" Philips PF9966 plasma.
My 5 month old order is still active and so I guess I'll be getting it afterall. I had hoped to select some other brand during those long months but I never did so I guess there will be a BenQ in the house. Will post a report on how well it functions as soon as I get it.
