Well Mine came today the crew From NVC direct Sony styles shipping outfit Called and asked if it was ok to come early.
So they showed up at 1:30 for 2pm to 4pm Sch delivery
It was only Tv on the Truck.
The Box was the same as everyone elses and kinda beat up,
I inspected it and noted it on the sheet.
Then the outer box was removed I inspected the casing for any damage and found none.
Then they brought it in and placed it on the stand.
It is Huge compared to my old 27".
Hitting the power button it came to life in 5 sec with the tilt geometry window.
Then came the channel search,
I cancelled that and proceeded with figuring out what Button brought up My DirecTV.
The Menu selections are nice, Currently I only have 1 RCA composite running to Video 1 and the a lead in from the sat dish for non-audio systems viewing to the UHF/VHF input.
Probably going to go with a Componant out of the AV Reciever to a trandcoder and run HDMI into the Set and then have the Spare DVI-HDMI port to run to the new Projector when I get it.
Then I ran a channel scan took about 10 mins Using just what the cable run to the dish is picking up I managed 7 analog and 7 Digital channels.
The analogs all look like crap pretty much like my old set.
However I'm really impressed with the digital channels No ghosting clear and crisp Probably going to dump local channels from the dish soon.
As for the Pic Quality on DirecTV it is as good as I had with the old 27".
I had a scan line issue but resolved with a cable reposition, the line that runs to the current splitter for the Tv and projector.
has a bad end and if It's not just right I get the swigglies on the Tv and Rolling on the Projector.
Laser Disc Performance is WOW and will probably even get better with the Componant Cable upgrade.
Then I tried the DVD player And it too was fantastic,
Who framed Roger Rabbit looked sweet and silky smooth with eye popping color.
Currently I'm on standard setting the film setting seams just a tad to dark atm.
I havn't tried the PS2 yet.
So far I am very please with its performance and am hoping to get a pic of it soon in action soon
The Delivery service
They didnt really know just what White glove delivery meant they did a good job getting it in though
I can say that Although Sonystyle has a bad rap
Eveything went together from the order to the delivery with one small boble I wasn't able to track it using there system.
But it wasnt enroute long enough to worry about it.
It came from Carson Calif.
