Got our 42" sets yesterday. Sold all of them before we put one out. Hoping to get more in in a couple of weeks. From what I hear they are going to be tough to get for the next couple of months

Wow!


Hopefully someone who has purchased this set is an AVS forum member and will post. I guess if no one posts it means they can't take their eyes off of it which is a good thing hopefully.

I just returned from viewing a 42we610 at Pro Video in Washington. Fortunately, it was placed close to a Samsung hln437w for easy comparison. After changing both from their hot settings (the Sony looked much brighter), the comparisons were interesting. The Sony stilled seemed brighter, but a little grainier than the Sammy (viewed from 10 feet away). The big surprise was the apparent improvement in black levels on the Sony.


In my opinion, there isn't a big difference in quality between the two sets, as each had their relative merits and issues. Bottom line: I think my family would be pleased with either, so why not go for the one that is easier on the pocketbook?

Will there be any difference between the PQ on the Grand Wega and the XBR? Or will the only difference be the addition of the HD tuner?

My KF-50WE610 should be here by the end of the next week. It shipped from the Sony warehouse to the shipper's warehouse on Tuesday, the 23rd. I can't really track the shipping from this point forward, but I imagine sometime next week I'll get the call that delivery is expected the next day, and I should be home to greet it. Sick day!


I'll give a full report as soon as I get everything hooked up and have a chance to really experience it.*


*please note - I have not owned the 50XBR800, so any comparisons I make will have to be against store display models, unfortunately.

I saw one today at Circuit City. They also had the old XBR on sale as a clearance item. The new set's contrast looked much improved. They had it next to all the plasma's. In my mind you can hardly see a difference between the top of the line plasma's and the new Wega. It looked awesome.

I saw it today at CC locally (42"). I have to say, I was very impressed. I wish they had a 50" for view. I can't tell you how impressed I was, over what the GW2 was doing. The "black" on the GW3 was far better. It was set up next to a Hitachi 50" and it was hard to say. I think the 42" Sony looked a bit better, but this could be due to the smaller sized screen. I would love to hear what others have to say about the set. Especially if they are able to do side by side viewings of the Sony, Hitachi, and Panny.


This new GW3 is also a 1366 x 768 set, right?
