I've heard buzz about 1440p since last September @ CEDIA, but nothing about 1770p.

He told me about this format to but he said they would be skiping it and going 1770p. I have yet to find anything on it. I guess you would hear about this from Cedia or at a CES show since they tend to show future products in home theater.

Since these rumors must be true it would be good to wait and save some money for a new projector or LCD TV that will produce this new format.

I guess Sony will also come out with newer Blue-Ray Disc that will be able to do either 1440p or 1770p.

Ok, I finally got out to see this thing and first off let me say it is flippin' TINY! You can't begin to imagine what an 11" 16:9 display is until you see it..... I overlooked it and had to ask the salesman if they had it! I thought is was a portable DVD player, it's that little!

I watched a scene from Casino Royal on a PS3, and the detail looked very good, but even at the 3 feet or so I was watching it at it was way to small. I think if it was on my lap it would be to small as well!

I was very surprised when I asked if they had sold any and the salesman told me they've already sold 15 of them! I can't see $2,499 for a small TV to stand in the kitchen, oh, yeah, the stand isn't removable so it has to sit on something. The actual panel is pretty thin, but Pioneer had a 3mm thick (or thin) plasma @ CES and LCD's were 1.5" thick so how long will it be before they all are super thin?

I don't know, to me the technology shows a lot of promise, even from my brief demo, but I fear it is still a few years off being a real world system.

I had the same problem when I went in looking for it. I was watching it from like a foot or closer away trying to see how well it handled motion which it seemed to do well. . . but then again the screen is just so tiny.

I did not like how you were forced into using its base either.

When I was at the store, on a weekend, no one was really even looking at it and the store was pretty full. JSP has no interest / desire for an 11" screen, much less one for $2,499.00.

The Tampa Sony Style store is in the high end mall for this area, but it still surprised me they'd sold 15 of them! I tried to get very close to check the video quality, but it was pointless, it did look sharp, but it was too small for any actual use.

The sales guy was probably just yanking your chain to get you to buy before they were "All Sold Out!"

I just don't see the market for an 11" table-top-mini-me-sized-screen.

I think it's really more of an amuse busche of OLED.
