This TV is truly excellent. I have it set up with Sky+ and an Apple TV box and an HDMI link to a Blu Ray DVD player. Pictures from all sources are far better than I expected. The quality is so good that I don't think I will be rushing to pay more for an HD Sky box yet awhile. It is also so much lighter than a 4 year old plasma I have in another room and therefore more easy to manoeuvre. So for picture quality, sound and general appearance, I'm delighted with it. I was a bit reluctant to go back to black but it looks good on a black glass stand. Even my old black Rogers floorstanders look good with it. I play the TV with all sources through an integrated hi fi amp. Can't be doing with too many speakers in the lounge. Buy with confidence.
Eventually I'll upgrade to BluRay and Sky HD, but for the moment my main sources are a Sky Plus box, a veteran Sony DVP-S725D DVD player, a Sony VCR/DVD recorder, and a Canon HD camcorder.Read more ›
I got a couple of free disks. First of all I gave XxX a whirl. Not the greatest film in the world but looked great, nice and crisp. Same with Pans Labarynth.
As for the TV itself...Screen gives nice big picture. Blacks of pretty good, not perfect but for the money you are doing well. Digital TV gives nice picture, Im going to get Freesat at some point as my freeview reception is hit and miss.
Downside is watching older programmes. I watched Dads Army and as another reviewer mentioned you get to see the warts and all of the poorer quality of the old recording. Going to watch a digitally remastered old Dr Who tonight to see how that fares. Watched Revenge of the Sith last night on normal DVD and the picture was fantastic so glad I wont have to rebuy all my DVDs again.
So in concluding, well worth considering as you seem to get a nice bit of telly for the money. My only other advice is haggle! I went to Sony Centre and quoted Amazon prices and I got the Blu-ray player and 5 year gaurantee.
One down-side though...old movies can look really poor as the TV exposes every blemish - especially old American stuff in old VT quality - both pixellated and fuzzy - not a fault of the set. My cinema system has 1080 upscaling and DVDs look brilliant so will be ok without a blu ray just yet! I would recommend getting HDTV though as I think it will be difficult to live with "less than" picture quality on a big screen. If you want a lovely high quality TV with all the Sony build quality at a good price - this doesn't get much better!
