I have exactly this tv and I chose it in Nov 2010 (a) to avoid a plasma which system gives blurry pix and (b) because it accepts the standard memorystick which you plug into the tv's USB2 socket.
I keep tv films on an external high-capacity hard drive, am gradually transferring my VHS library to the pc hard-drive and then use the software editor that came with the pc's graphics card, and this means that provided I use a memory stick at least 8GB in size I can get most tv films on to it (90 minutes of running time is about 5 GB) and of course I can use the memorystick for a still-photograph slide show.
I no longer need the time, trouble or expense of burning my copied VHS to DVD, nor to devise a storage facility for umpteen DVD discs. The external hd does all that and with a quickly-searchable catalogue also...
It is my belief that the advent of tv with usb memorystick capability means the death of Blue Ray and other DVD systems. Memorystick prices are coming down and memory size going up. I suggest it won't be long before such solid-state re-writable memory will even oust the optical hard-drive? Littleseen
