The Gents who stated they bought the sets, as stated above, seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth, as I look for their comments.
The first fellow- I sent a private message and never got a reply.
What I ask is - How good or better is the BE3 processor in the new Sony TVs?
Not everything I would watch with DISH as a source is in HD, so how good or bad is SD on the XBR9 or Z5100 46" sets???
I just returned from a trip to Sears here in No. VA. They had a Sony52XBR9 next to a Samsung Ln52B750. The PQ looked the same with the Sears Canned SOurce of some kind. SO it hard to tell how they are in the real world.
Across the street was BestBuy. They had a Sony 46Z5100 operating on a BLURAY Demo disk of some kind. It looked nice. SOme have commented about the Side inputs. Well- the side inputs are NOT on the very edge but back about 6 inches. So any cable would not show. SO that is not an issue. The bezel is nice & thin. The TV does not look large. PQ looks nice. But again, this is not the real world.
I'd like to hear how these new SONY sets really look like and what is the actual SD PQ from a Dish or Directv source.
Any one out there with more info?
