This HDTV is one of the very few available 1080p HDTVs on the market that pulls out the 1080p resolution @ 60 fps and not only 30 fps (frames per second) like the most 1080p labeled HDTVs do...
And its veeery cheap for its 1080p capability but therefore it also lacks in some areas where more expensive 1080p TV mostly dont that much...as interlacing quality and stuff...(so if you want to play current gen games with a 480p resolution then you would have to live with a not suberp image quality...)
But if you give this TV a HD source (PS3/XBOX360/HD-DVD/Blu-Ray) then it delivers great 1080p quality that is almost a steal for the price of this TV...

Hmm, must be something special about this Faroudja DCDi when the Reviews points it out. Gotta read some details on this chip...
REALLY great in-depth review on this TV @ Awaremag
Additional ones:Needless to say most users have had very positive reactions to the LVM-37W1 after a little tweaking.
Another full 1080p @ 60 fps capable HDTV is one of Mitsubishi if i got it right but i dont know its product name...search on the web (but it costs much more then the above mentioned one cause it delivers quality in all areas...)
But to be honest, what can you expect more from this Westinghouse at a prize of ~ 1,500 bucks. You should be glad and happy that a firm has decided to produce a 1080p HDTV for this consumer prize ^^
If you only care of playing next-gen games and watching HD movies@ 720p/1080p then this HDTV is my recommendation for you in terms of best prize/performance ratio!
Yo, the Grand Daddy has spoken
$ 1,499.00 @ Amazon *LOL* Check the buyer reviews out:
Here a good one:
Man, this TV delivers some really nice performace for its low budget prize!As part of checking this set out last night i looked at it in electronics express directly beside a 37 Olevia and the new 40 Sony XBR and the XBR was only slightly better looking. To my surprise the Olevia looked as good but has hideous speakers that arent removable.

1080p @ 60 fps HDTV with best Prize/Performance @ $1,499.00!"Awesome, the PS3 is like alien hardware from a UFO crash... it's like reverse engineering the FUTURE OF DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT!"
Please dont buy this. Have my word from it cause I own it, I bought it for a bargin price $2,000.00 (that was about 4 months ago mind you).
It has really bad problems playing games since you cant set the resolution it stretches the game out and makes it look very blury. I have the HD cables for my PS2 and Xbox but the games look better ona regualr analog tv then on this (and yes i set the games on 480p or 720p even GT4 on 1080i). The refresh rate is not so good, in fast action or moving really slowly you can see the gohst of the image.
Also it only has DVI not HDMI, coverters are good and all but HDMI itself is better then what this has to offer.
The speakers on this is horrible, it has nice sound and all but when there is a loud sound, it goes mute and you only here that. Ex. In GT4 in third person you hear the music the car and the wind, but when you go in 1st person view the bass of the wind is louder and you only hear the wind you cant hear the car or the music.
Lastly the image quailty is not so good either when there is an image that is going from dark to light in the middle it has a weird color like if it was a 16bit color. It cant really handle the color red either.
So what ever you do stay away from this and i payed the price.Life is short, make it last.

[LIVE]Ubisoft Montreal working on Far Cry 3
Ubisoft Montreal is currently in the "preliminary stages" of working on a third instalment in the popular Far Cry series, according to Far Cry 2’s narrative boss, Patrick Redding, who revealed that the team now has a “commitment to the African setting.”
“For us Africa still has a huge amount of promise,” said Redding, during an interview with VG247.com. “There are still things we want to do with the African setting, and I think it’s safe to say we’ll continue to explore it.
“That said, we might find something new and compelling about the Antarctic setting that wants us to make the next game there, but honestly, we’re still at the preliminary stages.”
Redding added that the flexibility of the Far Cry 2 engine affords the developers the chance to set the game in any locale, though he admitted that an extension of the Africa setting in future titles would “save time.”
“If we wanted to make the next game set in the… forest of South America, we could do it,” explained Redding.
“But I think to save time, for us, one of the reasons we chose to use the African setting is because we felt that in order to retain the Far Cry brand value, of an exotic, dangerous environment, a place that maybe people haven’t had a chance to see themselves, or have seen extensively in film, television and other games, we wanted to choose Africa."
“Let’s face it, jungle islands are probably less exciting as they were four years ago.”
Far Cry 2 is due out later this year on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 platforms.
