Mark, Winchester Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Black depth, ease of use, powerful calibration tools, connectivity (4x HDMI, 1x USB, 1x S-Video, Component video, Optical out, HDMI v1.3) LED Backlighting makes a phenominal 2,000,000:1 Contrast ratio possible.
Bad points:
Input lag means that picture & sound are usually out of Sync, but if you are spending this much on a tv, you will probably have a decent enough amp to program a sufficient speaker delay, if you dont you should definately consider one.
