I'm actually thinking of buying a new TV. What would people recommend? Model numbers and reviews would be greatly appreciated. I recon I have about €1500 to spend.

I'm thinking of going for a Sony Bravia S Series. Bouncing coloured balls and exploding paint are hard to argue with.
I have a Samsung R74 LCD 40 inches
