Fragile - Will not spend this much on a TV

A. Abranches "Book Lover", Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this TV in March this year and were very happy with the quality of the TV. It met all the specs. I was also thrilled with the fact that the TV had Gorilla Glass and so would have some protection against slight dings that might hit the screen. I have a 5 year old in the house and in playing he accidentally threw his Thomas train and it hit the corner of the screen.

Banding problems mar an otherwise spectacular TV

  • Summary: There are so many things to like about this TV. In many ways, the perfect TV as far as I am concerned. Unfortunately, the vertical banding on the two units I have received so far (that's correct, I am on my second one at this point) is just way too noticeable for me to ignore, especially considering this model's "premier" status. There is no doubt that other than the banding issue, this is a clear 5-star TV.

First impressions more bad than good... (compare Panasonic GT50)

Patrick Niemeyer, Amazon

  • Summary: Having been very happy for six years with my 46" Sony Bravia KDL46S2000 I ordered a new 65" XBR-HX950. I didn't have any particular expectations or requirements other than bigger and presumably better. So I was really surprised that my experience so far has been kind of negative. In many ways I feel that this TV is worse than the one it is replacing. It is big and occasionally produces a beautiful picture...
