Has anyone seen the new Sony KF42WE610??? I see where it is new Sony Wega LCD and available at about $1000 less then the Sammy HLN437W. Are there any drawbacks with LCDs? Is there a chance of bad pixels or pixels going bad (where I hear DLP will not have this problem).. HAS ANYONE SEEN THE Sony KF42WE610 Yet?? Please any info would be greatly appreciated, I am confined to a 43-46 wide screen and the depth cannot be more then 16" hence the reason I am looking at these TVs exclusively...

Pinger,


Check out these threads - if I were you, I would get the Sony, and pocket the $,$$$.

Bottom line - beauty IS in the eyes of the beholder. I was faced with the same (space) issue - and ordered the Sony. Good luck with your purchase, and either way you go - ENJOY IT!

Bad pixels are one of the drawbacks of LCDs. I'm not sure how frequently they occur, but you might do a search on 'bad pixel policy' to see what Sony's replacement policy is (as far as bad pixels are concerned). It's probably not something you really have to worry about, but it's always on my mind just because I've had several laptops that developed bad pixels. I wouldn't let it affect your purchasing decision too much though. I've heard a few reports about stuck mirrors on DLPs, but it's seems pretty rare so far. Both would really annoy me if they happened, but it's not a big consideration for my TV search.


I suggest you find a store that carries both TVs and spend some time playing with them and comparing the picture. I prefer the PQ on the DLP sets to the Sony LCD RPTVs that I've seen, but there is definitely a cost difference. You ought to consider the new Philips LCoS sets as well. They have two 44" models coming out (44PL9773 and 44PL9523) that are within your required dimensions.
