Despite goodguys and crutchfield reporting availability of 50WE610 in a few weeks, went to local store today and saw 50WE610....Bought it....delivery this weekend.


Thanks to everyone for the insight, input, education, etc.


This site has been awesome.


I will post a review as soon as I can.


My only problem now is that I don't yet own a DVD player. Have to get one quickly.


Thanks again to all!!!!!

My set is in transit to Richmond today and will be in inventory. I special ordered mine for CC in Richmond a week ago. It seems like the first wave of them is just coming in, but there won't be a lot of stock in the beginning. I was supposed to get mine delivered, but if I can borrow one of my friend's trucks I could pick it up tomorrow. Otherwise I will have to wait til next week sometime.

CC here said that there were "none in the country [owned by CC]" and that it would be a few months before they had any because they had the GWIIs to sell first. He did acknowledge, however, that other stores were probably getting them already.

What made you jump so quickly on the Sony? Most people (including me!) spend _way_ too much time surfing here rather than getting off the pot and making a purchase. My wife wants to know why I'm up till midnight every night surfing the web. I told her I was looking at porn to throw her off! Anyway, I'm very close to buying the Panasonic PT-50LC13. What did you see in the Sony that the Panny and Hitachi didn't do or didn't do as well? Thanks.


BTW, just got back from my local CC and they show a lot of 50's in the warehouse and expects to get one on the floor by Saturday 9/27.

First got excited about Panny but, upon viewing it I had one big problem..I keps seeing pixelation whenever there was a scene change where the new scene was either a close-up or a scene with a large object.


At CC, I have seen the Sony GWII, the Hitachi, and the Panasonic side-by-side.


I actually liked the Hitachi's pic the best but went with Sony based on (1) having greater confidence with their durability, (2) researching here and getting the feel that there was greater dislike of the hitachi, and (3) most importantly...there is a thread where UMR and Mfusick posted pics of the Hitachi and Sony which made me believe that the Sony's pic is much better. Mfusick's tweeked Hitachi pic was worse than Sony's out-of-the-box. Also, what I have seen in person on the Sony has been amazing.


Like you, I have spent too much time online and too little in front of the TV so I am SO GLAD to have actually bought the set. I expected that this would be my first choice of set three months ago but I just had to wait on it being available.


Good luck in your quest.

Same here. I have 4CC's within about 100 miles of me. I called all of them and got the same answer.


"CC does not have the new Sony line and it will likely not be available for a few months."


3 of the 4 stores however did admit other chains either already have them or will in the immediate future. Im gonna keep checking my local stores periodically though cause hey,,,, you never know.

I wouldn't reccomend deciding on a TV that you haven't seen in person and are only comparing digital pictures that people take to post to make your decision - like I have been told and others, you need to trust your own eyes. At any rate good luck with your set! I hope everything works out well and like always - we want updates!

Why do you believe Sony's have greater durability? I personally think they have been making junk the last couple years. Case in point, my 36XBR400 went out on me after 2 years and Sony did nothing.


Go on agoraquest or audioreview or even *************** and you will see lots of complaints.


I for one will never buy a Sony again after the way they treated me. I am quite content with my new 50LC13 right now.

That is the understatement of the year. :D


Come on umr, we don't consider turning the channel to be tweaking the picture. ;)

DUDE-



That picture was from a stock CRT SWX model... NOT LCD!!!!


That picture has nothing to do with a Hitachi LCD vs Sony LCD decision...


In my opinion both are good sets... with style and looks going to the Sony and price advantage going to the Hitachi V500.


The new WE610 model Sony Grand Wega is price about the same as the Hitachi LCD.


Umr has tweaked his grand wega much more than most anyone ever would... so I have no doubt that his calibrated GWII makes a nice picture.... and compared to a GWII/III out of the box... UMR's calibrated LCD makes a much nicer picture.


Read UMR's tweaks thread to understand how much he did to it....


Please don't use those picture to make a purchase decision... because they are not relevant.


Also- Both are good LCD sets....good luck

Sony LCD VS Hitachi LCD is the same......



UMR- You are confusing people with those pictures... they are not even a fair or good comparo.


If you would like to debate CRT vs LCD... I would be glad to use a calibrated Hitachi 57" SWX.....and post some pictures. My buddies SWX 57" makes a smoking good picture... and is just as bright as GWII LCD 60" with alot better blacks.....


Convergence and focus are perfect.


Let me know... I'll take some screen shots.

If people aren't willing to take the time to read about the pictures, that is not umr's fault. If you were so concered about a fair comparison, you would have submitted a new picture by now.

I am not the one who claimed the convergence on your Hitachi was perfect. Just click on Mfusick's gallery to see who made that claim.


Those are fair comparisons of what they are. Your photo of a Hitachi CRT RPTV in CC and your Hitachi versus my GWII. I make no claims about anything else.
