Well, I have owned my set up here in Toronto, Ontario for a few weeks now. I love it. The WAF is now through the roof. When I first had it up and running, she said the picture looked just as good as my old Sony A20 LCD Rear Projection!!
Her tune has since changed after moving from HD cable, to real 1080P blu ray. It only took 20 mins watching Batman, Transformers 2, and Monsters Inc, and she was sold. A few times, I caught her saying things like wow! I of course pointed it out.
This buzz everyone keeps talking about, give it up! Anyone here who has had a rear projection can tell you what a real buzz is! This so called buzz is almost impossible to hear with out any volume. Turn up the volume anything past the loudness of a mouse fart, and you cannot hear a thing. It is a non-issue that has been over-hyped by worried people. Example...My blu ray player makes more noise than this tv!
Picture; for those of you sitting on the fence about buying one, rest any fears you have. It is just amazing, in fact, mind blowing. Sometimes, I actually have to stop and re-watch something because it was so unreal!
Audio; clearly, the tv does not have speakers, hence why its a monitor.
I got mine shipped. I paid the hundred dollars to ensure my arse was covered in case something went wrong. Supply is dwindling, I suggest any perspective buyer do the same.
Once sears.ca finds my damn tv stand that has been lost for three weeks, I shall take pictures of my set-up and show.
I have never shelled out this sort of money for anything other than a vehicle. I am glad I did, and I have no regrets. I doubt any tv will match or best this thing in the next few years. I look forward to years of enjoyment.
I did not do any break-in. I watch 99% HD content. I will be getting a professional calibration in the next few months. I look forward to seeing the improvements.
Pull the trigger and enjoy, time is running out.
