Even if the parts are replaced the problem will reoccur in a matter of short time. Sony has yet to solve the problem and a lawsuit for these TVs has been filed by a NY atty.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 Review, good tv but be wary

  • Summary: My parents have the 60 inch version of this television and love it. So I bought this one knowing there was a defect on it, hoping I could fix it in the future. Bad thing about the make of this tv is that there is a good change a green haze might envelope throughout the display and a huge distracting blob would appear during particular times while watching the tv. You can get around it if you don't mind the green haze but if you can fix it, it's well worth the money.

  • Summary: Easily the best HDTV technology out there, with JVC being a close 2nd. LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) is cutting edge, with all of the advantages and none of the weaknesses of other technologies.
