post #1231 of 1502
Dear All:

I just bought a 32" panasonic viera for $350 from newegg that i bought for my bedroom and had barely used it for days, and i like how beautiful the image is with the HDMI feeding it.

the problem is that i think that now, with the stunning hd picture in my bedroom, i think the 32" size is too small! (my living room has a Sony SXRD LCD rear projection 60") i'd rather try to sell it quickly to a friend now rather than later on.

i think 40" is sufficient but 46" would be even nicer, though a bit overwhelming for a bedroom.

there appears to be 2 "top contenders" in the 46" area:

(1) Samsung LN46B550

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889102260



(2) Sony KDL-46EX500 (thought i don't know the difference between the EX400 version versus the EX500 version):

http://www.onecall.com/ProductDetails.aspx?id=103007


They are both priced around $950 to $1,000 range.

Of course, there remains the issue of whether or not the 50-ft run of HDMI would transmit 1080 or not, which i cannot test without one of these 1080 LCD's. (i use a 50 foot run of HDMI to connect my cable box to the Panasonic currently)

May I ask for advice on a substantial size increase option from my current, brand new 32" Panasonic? I'd like it bigger, and that maybe going just to 40" might not be sufficient.

Specific models would be most appreciated as there are so many out there to choose from.

Many thanks in advance!

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung LN-52B750 (SS02 Panel)

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Great reviews and overall positive owner feedback plus it has
a lot of features I want.


3. What you like best about your LCD.
Good amount of setting options to play with, online updates, and the PQ looks great to my eyes.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
The controller, it seems unresponsive sometimes and the online menu is kind of laggy.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Kuro Blacks?

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
N/A

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
I'm surprised it has a "tie in" in the rear to hide your wires.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
So far, only ONE dead pixel and the response time of the controller

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
I think if you are patient, it is. There is no need to purchase a new set and pay almost 40-50% more when you can wait 5-6 months for a price drop.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
I was not planning to purchase a LCD but after all the trouble I had
with my Panasonic Plasma purchase, I'm pretty happy with this set and have no regrets making the switch.

Just brought home a 40EX400. I could not find out much about it so I just took a chance on the Sony name. Wish me luck while I go plug it in.

Just got a Samsung 55" LED tv. The UN55B6000 to be exact. Not the top tier of tv, but enjoyable!
post #1235 of 1502
1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung UN46B8000

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Wasn't in the market for a new TV but late last Autumn I was passing thru the AV section of a local dept store and the picture quality of the Samsung 6000 series was absolutely unlike anything I'd ever seen. Price was too high and I wasn't in the market for new TV but couldn't stop thinking about that picture quality. I kept toying with the idea and did lots of research for the next couple of months. Finally Amazon had a better price (along with no tax & free shipping) on what I thought was a better model (8000 series) for my needs/wants (yeah, "need" is rather over-rated when you get to this level) so I pulled the trigger.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
The picture quality is unreal. I'm not new to HDTV but still I think this picture is amazing! The backlit LED technology gives such consistency across the entire screen.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Some of the Widget set ups are a bit more difficult trying to use a scroll-wheel for "typing"... but that's minor. Can't find anything we don't really love about this LCD.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
This LCD has so many features, I can't think of anything for a "wish list"

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
With so many Widgets that involve searching, some kind of actual typing device would be great.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
The base is so much heavier than the LCD itself

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
None (and crossing fingers it stays that way)

9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.
Cutting / bleeding edge technology always costs more. Sure, you can buy something less expensive with less features and there's nothing wrong with that if it's your choice. I happen to appreciate high technology and am willing to pay more for what I feel is better quality. Sure, a Yugo and a Ferrari will both get you there... which one you choose is entirely up to you

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
If you decide to go with the Samsung 8000 series, do your research and read as much as you can about the Sharp vs. Samsung lawsuit and the reasons behind why this model is no longer offered by Samsung in the US.

1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung LN-40B550


2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Price, high contrast ration, 1080p.

Sexy gloss front and superb picture quality.

It runs kinda hot, and the menu has no "disappear timer"

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

I wish the menu would disappear without having to hit a button.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Kepp it up! Samsung makes the best!

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

I know its odd but I was surprised at how light it was.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

None whatsoever


9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

For the top end models, no.

Samsung UN46B6000

+1 i just picked up this set on sale yesterday. for the price i paid, i can't complain!!! i still need to configure it and get everything hooked up.

only diff with me was that i was looking at the XBR9 a week ago when it was going for $1598 superbowl weekend at bestbuy, but the price went back up to over 2k i went with this model instead
post #1240 of 1502
1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung UN55B8500

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Deep blacks, correct handling of 24fps content, beautiful and bright picture, form-factor, and the US-Appliances discount...

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Watching Blu-Rays.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Off angle viewing, ghosting on black screen w/ white text.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Greater than 55" screen size.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Make em bigger please. Have a button to turn AMP On/Off.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Just how good the blacks are. The bars bleed right into the bezel.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
none yet...fingers crossed.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
It was a little on the high-end of what I wanted to spend but still in my budget. I think it's worth it if you are highly critical of your A/V equipment.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Was intending on buying the V10 but found myself always drifting toward the LED's when shopping (brightness, deep blacks, color-pop, form-factor etc.). I've always been sensitive to "soap-opera" effect and the fact that you can turn off that feature made it a no-brainer for me.
post #1241 of 1502
1. The "Model" you have.
Sony KDL-40ve5, 40" model

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Sony reputation and clear bright display in comparison to Vizio next door.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Great picture and fits perfectly in my entertainment center

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Picture was dark initially, had to disable light sensor and dynamic contrast.
3 HDMI inputs and composite inputs on side of set.
Brightness control and Backlight almost max'd out.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
additional digital inputs, either optical or digital

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Improve the Brightness and Backlight range

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
No significant surprises. Set performance matched reviews.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
Audio conflicts with Comcast Scientific STB. Audio only with HDMI audio
selected.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Unit is overpriced as all Sony products generally are. Purchased at Costco
at discounted price.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged
Picture quality was terrible initially. Backlight, Contrast and Brightnes were almost
maxed out. Turned off light sensor and Dynamic contrast which helped significantly
Reduced Backlight to 8 and Brightness to 85. I used my 2 yr old Olevia 32" /720 set
and my 3 yr old Phillips 42"/1080p as a standard. Picture is not pretty close.

Just bought Toshiba 46xv645u yesterday. Have it temporarily hooked up using an S-video cable (I know its lame, but it replaces my old CRT Sony and that was the highest connection it offered) and believe it or not the SD DVD pic still looked decent.

Now am off to shopping for a BD player, upgrading my satellite receiver, setting up a media player (WD TV Live) and ordering a bunch of HDMI cables from Monoprice.

Got to rewire the PJ (4805) also with HDMI cables now.

Any tips for calibration or some sort of initial testing to rule out any obvious defects...i.e dead pixels, banding, clouding etc.

Thanks

You could kill 2 birds with one stone by purchasing an Insignia NS-BRDVD3.
The USB input supports powered external Hard Drives/flash drives, and many file types.
It might negate the need for a WDTV Live.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
A friend of mine recently bought his Daughter-in-Law a Condo in VA. Beach and in the little storage closet under the stairs were 2 Christie FP40 40" LCD monitors (along with some really nice DJ equipment). In exchange for the deal we give him on IT services for his company he let me pick a couple items out of all the DJ equipment they had found left behind in the hosue. I asked if I could have the Christie monitors since I knew they were suppose to be really high quality Displays. I'm using one for a gaming PC and ther other I havent decided yet.

I1. The "Model" you have.
Christie FP40 LCD monitor

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
It was given to me

3. What you like best about your LCD.
The pixel pitch (.65mm is awesome on a 40" monitor)

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
No Stand(wall mount only)/Thickness 2.8"/Weight 80lbs.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Stand/Base || Higher resolutions up to 1920x1080

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
N/A - Christie Discontinued their FP LCD line. (Even if they did start making Large Format FP displays again I doubt I could afford what Christie would charge for them)

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
a.)I was Surpised the overall condition and the picture quality, they seem to have barely been used.
b.)How well they work as a PC display, text clarity is amazing.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
Nvidia control panel seems to respons a bit slower my other monitor when making changes.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Maybe for a 40" commercial grade LCD display in 2006/2007. But you can get much better today for 10% of what these retailed for.

Here is a pic of the one I have hooked up, sorry for the quality I used my
webcam and had to set it on my desk to keep it still. I was trying to get close enough to show how good the text is.

good price, highly rated by hd guru and consumer reports

That I have it
4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Dont know yet-the thx mode seems to put white and black 'static' at the top of the screen with some channels
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
smaller bezel
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Smaller bezel, easier mounting of stand-that was a pain in the tush
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
How huge it looks in this room
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
the thx setting-but I've had it for all of 6 hours

who knows-time will tell.

Was going for the g10 but after the blacks 'issue' came to light I begged off.
I'm looking for any and all advice on how to set this thing up.

Thanks for that tip. I need to checkup on that. I doubt though that the Insignia would offer the kind of format flexibility that WDTv Live offers in terms of the video files it can play. It also could not decode DTS-HD MA, I believe which may be relevant in the future as I upgrade my receiver.

I have narrowed down Sony BDP-N460 as my BD player as it is very highly rated, has full audio support and also offers netflix and Youtube streaming.

Do you know if Insignia will play ISO, VOB and MKV files from an External Hard drive? I need look up if there is a thread on this.

I think for once, I am trying to do this right instead of being cheap as once setup I don't mess with my equipment at least for a few years, so longevity is important, although it is a relative terms in today's environment where things are obsolete within an year.

Yes. (if it's a powered HDD)

The only thing the Insignia won't do that WDTV Live does, is erase and transfer files from one drive to the other, or have wireless capability.

If you're really interested, I would buy the Insignia plus the WDTV Live, and then return the device you don't need. That's what I did, and opted to keep the Insignia. (BB doesn't charge a restocking fee on these items)
The Insignia does have a crappy remote though, but I use a universal learning remote, so it doesn't matter.
post #1249 of 1502
Picked up a UN55B6000 at Best Buy today, open box, for $1799. Apparently it was returned, open box, but the TV was never actually removed from the box.

I am absolutely blown away by the picture quality. I already have a 40" LG 1080p LCD in the bedroom but this is a whole other league it seems...I was literally at a loss of words when I turned it on. I love it.

That's good to know that Insignia can play those file formats. I do however, want the capability to add/erase content on the HDD once it is connected to the WD. May be I should get both and try them out as you mentioned.

Thanks

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung LN-40B630

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Great reviews, 120hz, pip, 80,000:1 cr (I know, I know all about those numbers....spare me Got it in place of an LN40B550 I purchased a week before. Decided 120hz was an investment if needed. Can turn 120hz off so was a no brainer.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Game mode trumps the B550's, overall picture quality is stunning after I applied syder calibration settings, deeeep blacks...thanks to a member here for posting them.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Little flaslight effect on bottom right corner. Comes and goes and is minimal so its a keeper.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
None really. Everything I need is taken care of.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Make sure the assemby is done optimally in order to prevent flashlighting, clouding. Happens cause of the panel not being equally tightly assembled throughout. Well thats one reason.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Saw the label and knew it was a C panel. Was hoping for an S panel...but after all was said and done, I was convinced the whole panel thing is blown out of proportion. The C panel pq is amazing. Better than the S panel my B550 had.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
flashlight effect. Although its minimal. Chances of getting no cloudiness or flashlight effect on any lcd is slim so no big deal. Comes with the therritory. Just depends if it ruins the image or not.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Sort of...especially towards the end of the models shelf life, right before the new line is about to ship to stores. Thats when you get good pricing.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Reasons I chose LCD: No glare/reflection issues. Didnt want to rearrange my house for a plasma, not happening! Even if I wanted I couldnt. Maybe place a black curtain directly behind me :? Better for the environment than plasmas, more energy efficient than plasmas, lighter than plasmas.

I just bought a JVC LT-46SL89 from Buy.com for $956.99. This JVC is going into the living room which will replace a JVC LT-42X688 which is going into the master bedroom. I am blown away by the colors of this tv. Out of the box the colors are stunning, with only a minor adjustment to the tint and turning off the smart picture setting. While this tv does not have the latest 120 or 240Hz technology, the Procision Genesis Processor does a fantastic job and from what I have seen so far a picture free of motion blur. I have viewed HD sources from Directv, Blu ray, and HD DVD and all are incredible. The tv itself has a beautiful design with its very thin bezel and slim profile. The stand even swivels which is great since it's on a tv stand. I had considered a Sony XBR9 and a Z series as well as a Sharp but am happy I took the chance on this JVC.

Edit : I do have to mention that the Buy.com website is wrong when it says this JVC has a 10ms response time. It's actually 6.5ms, but I wonder if that really matters. I just figured I would mention it.

WAF! Good point. I just went through that and ended up buying two: a 32" Sony XBR9 and a 40" W5100 and kept both (the larger one went downstairs). We had "issues" with the TV stand and how the TV looked on it. Not the TV image, just how it "looked" on the stand (groan!).

Video Only in Seattle made me an incredible deal on a Samsung LN40B750 - $999.99. Fry's is still selling it for $1349 when I went there the other day.

This set went into the bedroom, so I got the Wi-Fi connector, and got it working without too much trouble. This is a great set for the bedroom, because it has three on/off timers, so you can have it turn itself on in the morning at different times during the week, or weekend, and it will turn itself off at designated times, or after three hours if no turnoff time is set. Those Internet widgets allow you to check the news and weather while you are dressing so you can dress appropriately for the day.

Clips downloaded on the PC can be played over a DLNA Media player, which is a bit tricky to set up with Samsung's PC Share Manager. There are a lot of bugs in the software, so some clips which should be playable are not for some reason. HD clips that are playable look outstanding, far better than when played on the PC, or on the downstairs HDTV using component cables.

I was hoping I could live with just the clear QAM tuner, but this set cries out for an HD cable box and a Blu-Ray player.

1. The "Model" you have.

Sony Bravia KDL-46EX700

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Solid features and fair price point met. Fresh Bravia manufactured in February 2010 and purchased March 7th. BB has since increased asking price. This pleased me


3. What you like best about your LCD.

PQ and it's subtle, non glossed out reflects everything in the room screen appearance. Nice colors and natural, relaxed image while maintaining great detail.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

It wasn't free. Everything else is exactly what I wanted and signed off on.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Backlit remote, illuminated SONY display.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

N/A

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

Swivel Stand was great and appreciated.

Nothing yet.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Today's buyer's options are better than ever.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

In late January I bought a 46 Z5100 and it failed after one week. It was manufactured in July 2009. Refunded at Howards without any problems.
Bummer cause I got a smoking deal on it. Purchased another and after 3
weeks it had a couple dead pixels and flashlighting issues. So I returned it and waited and watched for new Sony's.

I loved the Z5100, but it just wasn't meant to be. Shame, great looking tv and 240 mhz was cool but not a concern to lose it really...

1. The "Model" you have.

Sony Bravia KDL40EX500 120Hz HDTV

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Very nice picture, i love the sony brand name, and the dudes at bestbuy gave me a stellar deal, including a free calibration and $200 knocked off the original price!

3. What you like best about your LCD.

The sleekness of it, the layout is nice, and my ps3 games look much better then my old model, the swivel stand is nice.
