Been away a long time (OT)...
I haven't been perusing the AVS Forum much recently, but my 2007 KDS-55A2020 recently developed the green tinting problem. Posted some on the relevant threads, etc. Then I remembered that back in the 2005-06 time frame that there was one killer thread that I remembered always reading through first thing in the morning when I came into work. After about 5 minutes of searching I came across it. This one
It was reading through this thread that got me very excited about being able to get the TV that I eventually ended up with. It is unfortunate that the SXRD line developed the severe problems that eventually cropped up, but as we all know, new technology carries risk. I remember how excited I was when I got the TV for about $1,800 from Onecall. The plasmas at the time were something like 2x as much. Even given that I may end up now buying a new TV, I am very happy with how it performed up until now. And also a big thank you to all the posters here whose posts I very much enjoyed reading back in the day. Including everything that I learned while scanning this and many other threads on AVS. I even remembered some of the names: umr, thestewman, jb007 even though it was quite a while ago. Very nice community here, and glad to have been part of it
