The 2005 Sony SXRD LYCoS I bought in 2005 was on the RPG throne at least before most of them blew the light engine out .
I went from that to Plasma for my primary display for a good while with Toshiba and Sony 1080P LCD in here until making this room and my 2015 Sony 55X850C the primary display in here , the 2013-2014 Samung 64f8500 1080p Plasma in my sig remains out front and the family likes it fine .
Sony was on the throne from maybe at 1968 to 2005 or longer
in the retail TV picture quality markets and has regained it for sure in 2017 .
Sony while late to LCD owned direct view LCD for a while ouside of maybe 3 or 4 yrs or 5 yrs of range topping Samsung LCD but 2005-2010 I never followed them much so I may be off on that 2005-2011 -2012 business
IMO overall Samsung LCD is real decent and I thought better than Sony at least in 2013 -2014 LCD and the 2015 Samsung JS8500 is arguably better than my 2015 Sony X850C anyway and that's what I observed but no regrets with the Sony X850C at Q4 pricing here it's still putting out a pretty fair picture for what it is but an upgrade may happen
