I wouldn't mind seeing some reviews of these on HDTVtest:

You and me both. Big affordable LCDs (they're somewhat affordably priced, right?) would be good!

David, I would be very grateful for your advice on the Sharp panel pixel structure which I noticed you mentioned some time ago.

How noticeable is it to the naked eye in real world use for someone used to SPVA / Plasma panels?  Is it like the structure of a CRT close up?

Would you also say that LCD panels (not TVs) are as follows (for video PQ and contrast/colour)?
Best = Sharp ASV/U2VA (always found in high end models eg B&O, Philips 9000, Loewe)
Next Best = Samsung SPVA/PSA (eg Sony HX...)
Very Good = AUO AMVA (eg TVs with high end pretensions)

I'd find it hard to rank those VA-like panels in order between Samsung SPVA and AUO AMVA, but I would definitely rank both above Sharp ASV and UV2A, partly because I couldn't tolerate the pixel structure in my own usage. As far as I'm concerned, shutting off half of a pixel decreases the perceived resolution in those areas.

Thank you, David, that's very helpful. From what I've seen online, I believe that I wouldn't be able to tolerate the "ragged edges" the Sharp method creates! I'm still confused as to why they're used so much on high-end LCD TVs if this flaw is inherent...!

Actually, it was confirmed by B&O representative to me, that their LCD models use Samsung S-PVA panels.
And Loewe uses them because they're in business alliance with Sharp.

I don't know why people keep rating UV2A higher than S-PVA. Their performance is hardly better than S-PVA, judged by objective measurements and comparison.
