I am really thinking this may be my next TV. I need to go see one even if it just a 65 inch. I love my Samsung 55 LED and I am told today that a 68 inch LED Sharp is coming in a month or so. I really want to go 70 inches plus but may consider the Sharp if the picture quality is not there with the laservue 75. I see several Sony Qualia owners posting on here which I find funny because I have the equivalent technology 70 inch JVC which I think has great picture quality for it time. I just hope this laser provides as good as picture quality as the latest plasma / LED's and then with a 75 inch size that really cannot be beat.
We Qualia owners were very happy with our picture quality. But, like all of Sony's SXRD sets, the Optical Blocks are failing, as are the warranty replacements and Sony is just walking away. We are looking for the replacement to these superb (when working) sets and the Laser Vue is a top candidate because of size and picture quality. We Qualia owners recognize that the best value in large size is Rear Projection. We have been in the business of annual lamp replacement and dimm lamp brightness for the last half of the year, so we are intrigued by the unlimited life, and no loss of brightness promised by the Laser. Since we already have RPTV's, we are not seduced by the flat screens, as we all put our sets on top of equipment racks that are 20", or so deep, and usually have large speakers to each side, as well. I, for one, am unimpressed by Sony's latest and greatest LCD, the XBR60LX900, which is about to be released without local LED backlight dimming. This means that the dynamic contrast ratio (the ability to see detail in dark scenes) will be inferior to all other top of the line sets, including the Laser Vue. And it costs $4999 for a 60" set--the same price at which we will be able to buy the 73" laser Vue.
So, many of we Qualia owners are looking very seriously at the 2 nd generation Laser Vue. Sony's extended warranty on our Qualias ends at the end of August, when we must either accept their payment of $700 for the sets for which most of us paid more than $13,000, or opt out of a class action suit and go the small claims court route. Many of us will be in the large TV market in the next year, and I can assure you that we will be giving anything from Sony a pass.
