Default Re: Just got a Sony 50" Bravia LCD HDTV,

After more carefully looking up the Sony TV in discussion, I stand corrected.

Granted, I haven't been in this business for a while, therefore I'm (obviously) not very updated. I just recently got myself a cheap 32" LG 720P LCD, and I'm satisfied. Blacks could be a bit a bit better, just gotta find that service menu, heh.

RPTV's don't perform well in heavily lighted areas aka Best Buy and Circuit City. I don't watch TV with 10,000 watts of artificial light in my room though.

Of course they don't. Why anyone would think that, I don't know. I guess the same people who don't calibrate their TVs or video sources.

Yeah of course, uneducated fools. But they don't care about image quality either, right? Not in the sense that you and me do, I mean. I spend at least a month reading reviews and comparing products before I buy them... Average Joe doesn't.

I'll take an RP HDTV anyday vs. one hanging on my wall

Love the accuracy and suprisingly enough my KDS 60a3000 doesn't suffer at all from all the windows in my living room. My old Mitsu rptv did though.

Oh, and I have noticed that the blacks are EXCELLENT, and it doesn't have that glossy stuff that is so distracting (have a glossy LCD sitting in front of my right now for my desktop/desk area).

Does much better than the other HDTVs I have used, and is easy to browse the net with (several posts here at NVnews were made while using it the other day).

Games like UT3, Call of Duty 4, etc. are GORGEOUS. The picture quality is at least as good as my Samsung 26" CRT HDTV, and that says a lot, as I love CRTs (except for the potential for a headache!)
