I just read the review and I think I am going to go with this model. I was also looking at the 8700 and the sharp xv12000. After reading the thread about the 1080p DLPs coming soon, I was considering waiting, but the price is going to be sky high I'm sure when it is first released. I will have to settle for a good ole hd2 chip with the 720p resolution. I'm sure I won't be dissapointed after watching a non hd sony 35' TV for so long.
