Tonight my wife and I went to walmart for groceries. Naturally you can find me roaming the TV department comparing the new sets. I see they got in some new Vizio's with the full-array display.
Just lucky I found three 46" sets in a row with the Vizio in the middle. To the left was a new LG set and to the right a new Sony W-series set, all 46" screen sizes. I spent about 10 minutes comparing the color and blacks and edge sharpness.
The Vizio's blacks looked good, but could not match the Sony set. I also noticed the Sony set had better color and also a more detailed picture then the Vizio. The LG did rather good and was just a little behind this 2014 Sony set which did not include the triluminos feature.
The Sanyo sets had low priced sets and makes a good picture and color, but I did see some motion blur at times when showing some fast moving football clips. Still for the price Sanyo is not that bad of a TV set.
Many here may not know that Sanyo is actually a older company than Sony and Panasonic. All three of these companies are considered quality manufactures located in Japan. Consumer Reports magazine said not long ago that the Japanese TV manufactures had the fewest repairs. This was in one of their magazine articles, maybe the November 2013 issue showing the new TV sets.
Panasonic, may come on strong to compete with Sony's Triluminos color and picture quality. This is why i'm looking forward to Sony's 2015 sets shown in January at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. During that week their is lots of online information from the show. I hope we will see Sony with another outstanding 1080p set. That is if they and the other companies don't all go to 4K sets in the larger screen sizes.
