Where have you been all my life?
Ambilight TVs are awesome for that amazing halo that flows around the edges of the screen. It's partly why Philips is one of the major LCD sellers in the US, and why I adore them so much. Of course, that glow wouldn't mean nothing without a solid screen, and yes, they're gorgeous, too. Fastest refresh rates in the LCD TV biz, I believe. But they've been slow as hell in getting out true 1080p resolution HD screens.
This is the first, using their noise reducing pixel plus tech in its fourth iteration. The 3rd gen was amazing. My favorite TV to date is the same sized LCD with Pixel Plus 3, and a lower res of 1366 by 768 (compared to the 1920 by 1080 res of this one). Details are sparse, but I'm sure more will come.
This could be my new favorite TV.
