Marco--awesome pics. Quick questions--

I'm looking at getting this set. Is it amazing for gaming? How is television (SD, HD, dvds)? I'd like to hear your opinion. Can you post some more 360 pics of other games? I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

All the info you can share with your experiences with this set would be greatly appreciated!

Hi! I'll try to post some more pics over the weekend. I've only used my PS2 and Xbox360 over component on this TV set. I haven't hooked up my Gamecube, original Xbox, or any other console to see what they look like. Basically, my impressions are the higher resolution and higher bitrate material looks WAY better on this set. DVD's look pretty good, definitely better than SDTV which is just bearable. HDTV (I have all digital Motorola DCT3412 from Comcast) looks very good. The thing that looks the best is D-VHS DTheater tapes, so when HD-DVD or Blu-Ray comes along they will look awesome on this set. So, long story short, the lower the resolution and bitrate coming into the set, the worse it looks...

Thanks Marco. Pictures would be great. I am really looking forward to this set. How far is your viewing distance?

I am only about 10 feet away, give or take a foot depending on where and how I am sitting. I previously had a 46" Sony TV and it took me a few days to adjust to the change. But now, I think it's great! Besides, I don't believe all of this stuff about the exact distance a person should sit, it is subjective for a LOT of people. Unless of course the manufacturer has designed the optics of a system for a specific application and the product looks awful under any other conditions...

Syntax max a great television.
post #224 of 8018
How and where did you get the LT26HVX for less than 500?
post #225 of 8018
A lot of shops supposedly dropped the Syntax model down quite a bit for a short while. But have since priced them at the regular one, I assume to make room for the next model.
..Someone posted a short while back they got one for 50% off...Seems unlikely but they do seem to be going on sale..
post #226 of 8018
I've seen the Westinghouse 32" 720p set normally at 1299, drop down to as low as $899, and then back up....then down to $1099....they're all over the place.

This is probably in preparation for the new lines that have ATSC tuners built in.

Love my 37" syntax with the 360...and the price at target.com, with the 10% code, was close to what those are paying for the 32" syntax at other online stores. I paid less for my 37" syntax LCD than I did for my 31" Sony analog TV 10 years ago...now that is progress!

Search target.com for "syntax"...

Sounds like a pretty good deal. I picked up a Kolin Syntax and opted out of the Olevia...I didnt really care for the black case as the Kolin has black and silver which is a pretty decent looking set. I paid 300 shy of a grand for it and it was the best deal out their...I picked up the 32" by the way and have no complaints...In fact my parents are considering purchasing a Syntax for their living room they were very pleased with what I got....I think they are onto something.

I also picked this set up because of the outstanding warranty. It came with 1 year parts and in-home labor as a standard warranty...Good stuff, I have no complaints and wont either with this kind of warranty even if anything went wrong. I also contacted them several times and customer service is great.

Here are some pics. My PowerShot A80 does not really do actual footage no justice. These shots are projected on a 92" BOC screen from an Infocus 4805 projector:

Thanks Marco--I LOVE that tv. Just found a new house today. Will 'hopefully' move in Feb. 1st, which means I can upgrade to either the 50" or 60". Might have to be the 50", though...oh well

Marco99, I noticed that in your last set of pics.. Is that some sort or add-on to the TV to have speakers as well? Cause you can see the wall paper on the right in between the TV and speakers..
post #232 of 8018
Man, I wanted to post some pics back in December and am just now getting to it. It's great to see people's setups - keep em coming. I couldn't quite get the color right in these pics, but they turned out ok, I guess.

I'm thinking of getting a silver or black skin to cover up the top of the unit but am undecided. I'm not a big fan of the virgin white.

I do love the box, tho. Lots and lots of fun

Heh, guess you haven't been in the SXRD forums, eh? They are called "dumbo ears" or "wings." It's Sony's cabinet design for these sets and a LOT of people HATE them. I am not crazy about the amount of space they take up (including the empty space they waste which you noticed), but I can live with them. They actually sound rather good, and I, unlike some other people, don't just want a monitor. I can appreciate that it has good sound for normal TV viewing. Not everything justifies turning on my surround sound receiver and consuming many 100's of watts of electricity...

Those all look pretty low-rez to me.

I've got a vice city one that someone did off the PC in 1600x1200 I think, and it scales pretty well.
post #240 of 8018
1024x768 is low res? I thought it was high, how many mega pixels is that on a digital camera? Also where can I get some Hi-res ones?
