Spent some quality time with an SXRD

by Dan Filice / March 11, 2007 3:28 AM PDT

After convincing a friend to buy a 50" SXRD, my wife and I had dinner at his house last night, and I finally had some time to spend playing around with this set. I was worried that I made a suggestion that would not live up to the expectations that I led him to believe. After fiddling with the settings on both the TV and the cable box, I watched both SD and HD material on cable (he has Charter cable as I do...he lives two blocks away from me). The SXRD is stunning!!! SD material looks great. This set does a great job of upresing SD. HD was magnificient!! I have a Toshiba old-school RPTV HD set which I love, but this Sony set convinced me about my previous assumption that I would buy one when it's time to get a new TV. I don't need a new TV yet, but I'm tempted to buy one and put it in storage to use when my old TV finally gives up. By the way, I also have a Sony WEGA LCD 23" HD set, and although HD looks great, the SXRD makes SD look much better.

My local bank of america just installed 6 sony t.v. all tuned into c,n,n, which looks like cr-p on my toshiba ha ha also c.n.n. is in 4X3 so the set are set to 16X9 I cannot believe the picture quality no distorted picture almost hi-def quality, Yess I still love my monster 72" Toshiba d.l.p. monster and a 1080" hi-def picture will be very close to the Sony but they sure do an awsome job upconverting Thats why I tell folks not to buy these off brand sets they put out a fair hi-def picture but everything else is going to look like like crap. steweeee
