Ok, folks. Here ya go.


Pics only for now, as I have to now go get a stand for this bad boy....


Wasn't planning on getting today, but a local store surprised me with their availability and great price.

Awesome, congrats! I'm surprised that you got it at a retail store before those that preordered from Sony got theirs.


So, what was this "great price" anyways?

Mr. Foo,

When you have a chance (I realize that probably won't be today with the new toy in the house), would you please measure the distance from the bottom of the base to the bottom of where the actual screen starts? Thanks, and congratulations!!!

Is there a glass screen on these sets?

So glad someone else posted pictures... I've been trying to get the ones I took converted to 800x600 since that seems to be the only size that can be uploaded? Not much into the photo editing - is there some easy way to do that?


Uh... no green glob after the first hour. Did the XBR1s have the green glob out of the box.


I've got it on the floor while I wait for a stand.


I put in Finding Nemo - looks gorgeous. My Name is Earl on NBC HD looked nice, too.


Out of the box, there has been no buyer's remorse from buying this sight unseen. I was hoping to get something that looked similar to the XBR1 I saw at BB and this looks just as nice to me (well, nicer since it hasn't been running non-stop at BB for who knows how long).


I just went back into the living room where Finding Nemo was still playing. It's just very impressive. And it almost sucks for me. This isn't technically "my" primary display. It's my wife's. I've got an IN76 upstairs. The IN76 is nice, but I'm scared to see what HD-DVD is going to look like on the A2000. I shouldn't even look. I almost don't want to know.



I've already said I don't want the kids in the living room ever again. I need to go barricade that area off...

Brandon thanks for the update. Were there any color uniformity issues at all during the first few minutes after startup?

For those of you who have gotten their set or are expecting it in the next few days: If any of you have or will be getting an HD DVD player, I have aquired a disc image with the same test patterns I reference in this post that can be used to test the deinterlacing of 1080i material. If you do have a unit, let me know, and I'll get you a copy of the image that can be burned to DVD-R and played back on the Toshiba units.

if anyone gets a chance I would really appreciate if someone could measure the width of the back of the 60" set. I need to figure out how much the sides angle in to see if I will be able to fit it into the corner of my family room.

New Owners,

Those of you that are computer savvy, please connect your computer to the TV via either the VGA or the HDMI and let us know about overscan/underscan issues. This may very well end up in it's own thread of course, but for those looking to use the TV in an HTPC environment, this is the starting point. And, since most if not all previous RPTV's required Herculean efforts to get them to work properly with a computer, maybe we will be in for a nice surprise



Robert

Here's a few pics I had taken earlier. I know - not the greatest.

The very first picture has a green blob with yellow lips.
Congrats!


May want to take the pics with the flash off and freeze frame the TV depending on type of camera.
