fluffy - I'll be sending the MN state police (or Strejek) over to check on your 5-finger discount!! :D

How exactly you can walk out of a store with a 73" Mits is beyond me!! :lol:

Live in the middle of no where and need service! :lol:

I owned a 60" TV (non-HD) since 2000, Sony called in late 2003 and said they needed to send someone out in order to resolve a recall issue. There was no Sony Authorized repair person so they decided to give me a new TV, a 70" HDTV.
This past spring, I called Sony again about a deformed lamp door on the 70" which was giving me fits. Anyway, Sony Extended Warranty (Service Port) decided again to exchange out the TV for a 73 inch Mitsubishi rather then send me a $4.40 lamp door (which I have since bought 10 of).

Who ever said Extended Warranties don't pay :D

So Sony sent you a Mitsu Tv instead of just fixing the door, all because you live to far to service??? I need to move out to the boonies then! Why not another Sony, do they not even believe in their own product:lol:

Actually it was Sony's Extended Service Supplier (Service Port) who was responsible for the switch. I was told the reason they were changing brands was due to the fact their supplier did not have anything larger than a 55" Sony on hand and that would not meet the equal or better requirement.

...see my signature for my choice of TV. I acknowledge that the Sony and Samsung are better objectively but the price vs. performance on the Philips seemed just right.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

I just added my 2nd HDTV ...

A 26" Sony Bravia KDL-26S3000. 720p (1366 x 768) with QAM tuner and 2 HDMI and 2 sets of component inputs. Awesome picture quality, and perfect for the bedroom, especially since it's the first TV in this size class that I've seen that has an option to turn OFF the picture! Perfect for listening to XM or music via Media Share...

Really! You can actually turn off the picture and still have sound? That is a cool feature!

That appears to be some kind of sport on your screen. What sport is that anyway? :D

Well, the screen and sport are actually in plural, so specifically which one are you asking about? :grin: :lol:

61" Samsung 1080p DLP. After the set was properly calibrated the HD pic is absolutely beautiful. SD is ok.
46 and 2 are just ahead of me.

I have a sony kdl-40S2010, tv just fine but only have 1 hdmi jack,but thats not too bad, I ordered a switcher 2x1 manual-push button type and two 3' hdmi gold played cables at $3.91 each, switcher $18.58 + $7.50 s/h=$33.80, and they work perfect! There is no way monster could be any better, order from "monoprice.com" you can get anything you would want at a fraction of monsters price. I have sony str-dg800 receiver, a sony DVP-NS77H/B dvd player: I have been with directv for 12 yrs. with H20-100 receiver which is still full of bugs, I didn't know directv was as money hungry untill I ordered hd, the receiver has r/f builted in it but the remote has I/r, so you have to buy a r/f/ remote, they slip your local channels in what ever package you get so you can't drop them, they have all kind of little tricks, so you had better watch out.

1999 - Spring 2007 Hitachi 61SWX01B - 61" Rear Projector
I loved this set - it did a great job, and the Hitachi's were effectively the reference standard for RP during most of those years. The "red gun" went way wack-o out of alignment - and fixing it would have been a long wait, more trouble than it was worth, and very expensive. RIP :(

Replaced with a Sony KDS60-A2000 Wega SXRD 60" LCD/RP. This set blew me away when compared to the Hitachi - 8 years of technology advancements make an incredible difference.
