Is this information on the most comparable Sony set still accurate?
The new model year for tvs is just around the corner, correct? Any ideas if that will bring something new to the arena?
I absolutely love my nx720. I think it is one of the best purchases I have ever made. Tons of compliments on it, both turned on and off.
The construction of the set is nearing on a work of art and with the picture dialed in correctly, I think the pq is top notch. (especially considering the price the set cost new). I have seen a lot of higher end Samsungs up close and I think the nx720 rivals them all.
However, the increasing reports of this set dying off everywhere has me worried.
I was lucky enough to add a four year square trade on top of my one year Sony warranty and my set has not had any regularly occurring issues to date *knock on wood*.
Yet, if my set dies - I do not think the return of my money will fill the void of losing such a sick TV. Breaking even financially after years of use would still feel like a loss in my heart.
So, I would not mind preemptively buying another comparable set - if one could be found.
I have the bug for more inches anyway. What are the real options for getting another Sony set as high quality as the NX series is/was?
