However, the posters on this thread have made this Q006 owner's experience more than worthwhile. I miss divedude, and the earlier regular contributors like Penton-Man, brt3, BenDover and mpsan, to name just a few.
Wishing everyone a very Happy & Healthy New Year. Last year I asked Santa for a fat bank account and slimmer body. He got the two mixed up, so I am hoping he gets it right this year
Finally, and I am embarrassed to ask, but will someone please inbox me with the easiest process to get a replacement for the Q006. I've read a lot about Sarah and the Sony Listens thread, but I am not really sure where to start. Some specific guidance will be greatly appreciated.
Happy Holidays to one and all...including divedude and mini.
Santa must be consistently getting your request wrong because I find myself in the same boat...year in and year out
I still have my Q but don't find myself watching it as much; mainly stay in the den on the relatively tiny 50" Pio Elite Plasma.
I had my OB replaced only once; I've replaced multiple lamps.
Find myself being concerned about when the Q's picture will really jump the shark but similar to another poster I don't believe any picture I take can accurately portray any PQ issues.
I suppose I can start the process and see where it goes.
I was helping my brother-in-law research a new LED LCD over the new year's break and I was sickened by how relatively inexpensive most of the 70" sets are these days. We truly paid the early adopter tax/penalty!
As usual this time of year, I end up with some new toys/gadgets. This year, I outfitted my home with a wireless Sonos system (2 x Play:5, 3 x Play:3; 1 x Bridge; and 1 x Connect:Amp); we all love the system and being able to control each and every component using any one of our iPads, iPhones, Android phones and/or computers. I also bought my first Apple computer ever; I used Apple computers back in the late 80s through late 90s at the office but never purchased one for home use...primarily because of the cost. I opted to purchase a Mac mini w/Lion Server (Intel i7 quad core; upgraded the RAM myself to 8GB) and added an HP ZR2740W (27" LED LCD, 2560x1440 res), a wireless keyboard, wireless trackpad and Logitech C910 webcam. Kids each got an iPhone 4S and the wife got a 17" Toshiba laptop.
Happy, healthy and prosperous new year to all the Qualians (even if you don't presently have one, once a Qualian, always a Qualian).
