Summary: All of these have organic liquid crystals for color reproduction, and eventually the heat and time cause them to degrade and turn colors...like yellow and green. So, you're better off plugging that money of yours toward a decent plasma or LCD than these old SXRD rear-projection sets. I own one and settled for a new LCD 55" from Sony as part of the class action lawsuit. Google SXRD and "green blob" to read more....
Summary: This is my first HDTV. Bought it through Amazon, not the 'alternate' sellers listed. As always, Amazon processed the order very quickly, and it was delivered within a week by Eagle USA, who did an excellent job, also they unpacked it and helped me put it where I wanted it. TV works great, picture is very nice, even non-HD channels. No problems with TV at all. And, it's 'Assembled in USA' which is quite rare when talking about TVs.
Summary: Awesome HD picture from free "off-air" local HD channels using 'rabbit' ears attenna or HD channels on Direct TV (1080i) with HD package. With basic Direct TV (480), the picture is poor. This set is great only with HD viewing.
Summary: I am fairly new to this set just picked it up several days ago. I am pleased with the purchase. Its easy to set up and its fairly light weight. I think its just over 100 lbs. The only problems I forsee (at least for me) at this point are the VGA input which is to hook up your PC. Will not go full screen regardless of what you do.
Summary: I got this tv @ the beginning of Feb. 2007. I have HD satellite reception and I'm loving it. The tv looks great and has been pretty easy to set up and use. My living room is somewhat large and I have about 12 + feet of distance between me and the screen. Even though 60" is pretty big, it took a little time to get used to it, but I think it's a good size. I'm very happy with my tv and would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: We bought our Sony during the Pre-Superbowl Price War on this Sony model. It was $2099 at Circuit City. The TV is great in all respects and I can think of no complaints. An interesting note has to do with our set up. We got the set home and hooked it up to a new 'Over the Air' OTA antenna we had purchased and just laid on the roof to see the Superbowl. The picture was great.
Summary: By trade I am a College Professor of Communications. I worked in the wonderful world of Media for 20 years. I extensively researched HDTV's before making this purchase. I looked at the Samsung DLP (about the same size) and a couple of others. I also looked at ratings online by key websites that rate HDTV's. I went to the store and looked at them side by side. I decided to go with this Sony, it looked a bit sharper than the others. Hooking it up was easy.
Summary: AMAZON is the only way to purchase large screen HD-TV's like this. They don't publicize it as much as they should, but they ship all large screen TV's with WHITE GLOVE service, at no extra charge. When you compare what all the other online retailers charge for this service, AMAZON is the LEAST EXPENSIVE. And to cap it all, they also have a no quibble/no cost return policy. AMAZON delivered my TV with free (White glove) shipping in 4 days.
Summary: I am a long time Big Screen owner and was happy with my 6 year old 57" XBR rear projection, until I saw the image quality of this LCOS TV. Without question, this is the finest TV on the market when judging value to output quality. The colors are vibrant, the blacks are really black and the sharpness of the image when in 1080i are remarkable.
