I know about a few of these TVs around with some curved, and what have you. I can say none much the quality of this Sony Bravia. Even 're-made' films that comes with are so clear, it looks like standing two feet from the action. In addition, the internet and sony entertainment centre give you the best of everything, skype is soo clear with the sony TV camera (which can be bought Amazon) for video, facebook and skype calling even standing 20 feet from the TV, the sound and picture are so clear it is unbelieveable.
If you have the money I recommend you choose this over the others in the market; though I bought mine at £4000, it is now cheaper and I wished I had waited a few months - I guess I saw it live a Sony centre got hooked up.
