I was really hoping to get a XBR6 but the prices have shot up as of late. I hear that Samsungs have noticeable lag but not sure if that is true or not. Any suggestions for both 360 and PS3 gaming? How is the Sony KDL52W4100 or another brand altogether?

I would say the Samsungs are on-par with the Sonys. Typically when people discuss LCDs they talk about the "Three S's" which are Samsung, Sharp and Sony as those seem to consistently be the three best manufacturers in the LCD market. Something to consider is the fact that Sony (and the others) are all announcing new models during this week's consumer electronics show. Most of these won't be available for 1-4 months, but when they do become available it should result in some clearances on the current models which might allow you to pick up the XBR6 that you want. On the Samsung, I would suggest starting at the A650 model.

Buying electronics these days is almost like playing the stock market. It seams the manufactures take turns on offering prices drops. I purchased a Sony 52" W series last week after seeing it and other Sony models on sale for a number of weeks. One week the XBR would be a good deal the next week a W. Now it seams the V and S models are being featured. This weeks ads seem to have a lot of Samsung models on sale. I find the same thing true with Digial SLR's. Folks like Nikon will offer a particualr model for a low price for a month or so and then it goes away. It seems the on line retailers like Amazon adjust prices on Electronics on almost a daily basis. If you get too greedy and wait too long the price may go up on you.

Having recently purchased a KDL-52W4100 myself, I can honestly say that it is one beautiful TV. I've been spending the past couple of days setting it up and making calibration adjustments using Digital Video Essentials and I've got to say that the picture quality is stunning. I was testing out the first few minutes of Terminator 3 on Blu-Ray.....when it reached the shot of the approaching Terminators in John Connor's dream sequence, my jaw pretty much hit the floor. Just outstanding picture quality.....not regretting this purchase one bit.

Ya thats true...The TV market is just like Stock market nowadays. The TV today is for 3000 may not be same for tomorrow. As Seth Said, if sony is going to announce new models soon, it will be good to have some patience and after lowering the prices, one can get the model. As far as, model is concern, Sony Bravia KDL52XBR6 is the hottest model in the market nowadays. Its like having all the features with a reasonable price. Do a small research and then go for purchasing.... Regards,

I think with the recession there's a tendency to lower the prices I'd prefer to get some money out of the customer than noe.
