A year ago I checked out a Demo Sony 70" on display and really wanted a sony in a 70" + screen size . But the picture was so dim and out of fucos that I passed it buy I also noted that Sony dropped the 70" model. Anyway I bought a Toshiba 72HM195 d.l.p. set and I love it tons of brightness even in low lamp power But I have often wondered if that Sony I saw might have been defective, anyway what is the picture quality of your 70" beast? and how brite is it. In closing I just got my new Sony blue ray player and talk about a awsome picture should look I max on your Sony ha ha steweee
I gotta tell you that this is one FIRST CLASS company. I bought a 70 Grand Wega in 2003 and after owning it for 3 1/2 years I had a problem with the set. It wasn't anything major but I had a service company look at the TV. Well the door that covers the lamp was melting from the heat of the bulB. My wife freaked out and thought it was going to burn the house down.
I called Sony and I will actually become the
PROUD NEW OWNER OF A KDSR70XBR2 for 800 BUCKS!! Now thats what I call a GREAT COMPANY. I can't believe that I will have one of the finest TV's on the market for a lousy $800.00! The set I own now is also a fantastic TV but Sony has made ALOT of improvements over the last few years. People constantly complain about the cost of Sony but frankly the quality of their products and the support provided certainly justifies the extra expense for me. This KDSR70XBR2 looks like its probably the finest TV on the market today for under $10,000.00. Its going to be a LONG WEEK but I can't wait to hook up this awesome piece of equipment! I learned a long time ago thats its not worth buying low budget components, particularly a TV.
