"Wow!! Glad I did not get a plasma or DLP"4.5 starson by Rtweed
Pros: Clarity, brightness, resolution, sound (without A/V on)
Cons: Sony Remote has no codes for my Directv HD- DVR box
Summary: I bought this after the standard 30 hours of internet research and talking with the TV guys at the stores. I was going for the Panasonic plasma but I overheard the salesman stating that the SXRD was the best TV in the store. After another 20 hours of research I pulled the trigger (with the help of 24 months no interest).
I am so happy. I have three other geek friends who are very jealous right now. Coupled with Directv, this TV blows away my friends DLPs and one's plasma. The 1080I basketball and football games both from Satelite and OTA can't be beat. Suddenly, Discover HD is one of my favorite channels. I am glad I waited and I look forward to watching HD programming that I never thought I would watch. Do yourself a favor and find someone who has this TV matched up with a satelite feed before buying any other TV.
