Talking Which HDTV?

I have narrowed it down to 2 choices:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889101097


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889102106


If not one of these what do you suggest?

2 Requirements:
-must be 1080p
-must be $2,300 or less

I saw the samsung live today with an HD-clip running on it(Lord of the Rings) and it really didn't blow me away... :-/ But I'd go with an LcoS TV myself after being brainwashed by EvilChris! CNET had a good review of the 55A2000(video), and here in Europe it goes for about 2000€.

And some of the Sharp TVs seem to have banding issues as well!

From what I understand, it has all the benefits of LCD and all the benefits of DLP with none of the negatives from either.

Yup. Here's a really informative link:

That's probably not laymens.

Laymens I guess is " it looks the best ".

Of course that's subjective too!

I am a big fan of CRT technology and had been waiting for SED before I got out of it. Sony's LCoS sets were so impressive that I bought into them. While my CRT's will still beat my LCoS in PQ, the massive size of my 70" panel overcomes that. Basically LCoS was "close enough" and the screen size pushed it over the edge.
