Problem is Sony still considers itself superior to everyone else (and they charge higher prices) when the fact is they are not. Until they get real, they won't get any business from me.
Samsung on the other hand is down to earth and delivers. And in some ways they surpassed Sony in innovation already - Sony has currently nothing on the market to compete with the Samsung Luxia. Who's the market leader then?
well it might be only my opinion,but the luxia is nothing to cry about in performance.the pure thing they offer is the design which is so attractive,thats why it sells.Behind it though the technology is nowhere near exceptional and perfect,at least not as the samsung commercials and ads show,as LED tv's:the new kind of television.I have nothing against them,in fact they are excellent,but a B650/B750 can perform equally for much lower price.so what sony has to do is do a more inspiring design,because the technology inside is superior,but with a worse styling its simply not showed to the consumer.Back in 2007,it was the really bad year for sony tv department,where there was no technical superiority(or it was very little),compared to the samsung tv's which were much cheaper.things in 2008 were better,except....usa,europe got a huge market share boost,narrowing the gap with samsung.In USA,things I believe were overally better but the growth came only near the last christmass,when the discounts started.Now we are in 2009,and at least for now,the sony line up available,is priced very well compared to the equivalent samsung tv models.Luxia aside.We have to compare the equivalent models,and these are not still available from sony,they will be later in the year,and I am very confident that when they come,they will really beat the samsung,and that in technical superiority.Withought tricky and fake adverts and design only
