JUST WHEN I THINK I GOT IT

by jerrynj2va / March 13, 2008 1:14 AM PDT

Meaning my tv choice. I narrowed it down to the 46"inch Sony xbr or the Sony kds 60a3000 projection (size,quality,$$$). My problem is though is this Pioneer I keep seeing. I know i might get flack from you tech guru's but i dont care. Pioneer hasnt proven through its picture quality why the price is so high. Further more, No offense but is Pioneer paying you guys to make them sound good. I just dont see it. I personally think it has Nothing on the XBR. So this brings me back to the drawing board because the "Best tv ever tested" is a pioneer plasma and I could have swore lcd was the wasy to go. I think the real reason i want the kds 60a3000 is because of the 120hz feature, faster natrually than lcd or plasma and if not the 120hz feature should help.

but for you and me, it's the eyes and ears test. But at the end of the day, it's your money..you spend it as you see fit. Good luck.

to the OP: you must remember set-up is everything. Calibration, ambient lighting, age of unit, the SOURCE!!! If you walk into a Pioneer store at the mall, please leave your wallet at home. Im serious.

But nice choices all around. The KDS 3000 series is more interesting to me for 24fps capability (or multiple of, 96hz?). 120hz? sure whatever. Excellent value the SXRD, and they won't be around very long.

its going to be like the old CRTs Sony used to make, 970 xbr or something, i dont remember. everyone's going to want one for the value and pq, but they won't find any laying around...

Lets say I do find it, which I know I can if I get it soon. Would that have a positive impact or negative assuming I get a warranty. I called sony after seeing your post and yes.. Sony is done with the good old projections. Sadly I think most companies will follow. What do you recommend?? Go back to drawing board or try and get Cnets #2 ranked overall hdtv. I mean it's even over the 81 and 71 series samsung.

Whichever you buy today or next quarter

will be surpassed by superior PQ and lower price next year, so quit worrying about getting the "best PQ" or "best value" or technology because those are non-enduring qualities. Look at the sets, pick one your eyes like, pull out the cc and the rest is history. All the major brands are reliable and have comparable warranties.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
