I've had this tv for a couple of months now. It really is excellent, I can't think of any negatives. The colours and contrast are good (really good blacks). It makes a fairly good job of SD pictures, but HD (from bluray or upscaled dvd on PS3) it is truely stunning, everyone should get a copy Planet Earth in bluray to show it off!
I had been looking at lcd tv's for a while, standing comparing them all in shops for ages. When I first heard about this one coming out I wasn't sure how good it would be as everything sounded great except it didn't have 100Hz. I had previously seen an X3500 (which has 100Hz "Motion flow") next to a V3000 and the V3000 looked really jerky by comparison (when watching some football and scrolling through credits), so I was thinking I would have to fork out the extra for a tv with 100Hz. Well with the W4000 they must have done something clever because it looks at least as good as the X3500 when there is motion.
Being able to stick in a memory stick to show off pictures is a handy little feature too (though I wouldn't leave it on all the time as a picture frame!).
I think it even looks nice (never did like the big blocky frame of the X series), I would recommend this tv to anyone.
