    Sony X950G?

    As I started to conclude my research of the last several weeks to a close a week or so ago, I saw the price of the Sony X950G at $1199 (apparently discounted) at most vendor sites, and was going to make the purchase the morning it went up to the current price, and was advised to sit back as the...

    Sony X950G?

    Yeah, Robert. I will probably shift the furniture a tad, eliminating a few feet of distance to the TV. Anything out there in the $1200 area?

    Sony X950G?

    Thanks, atcolomb! My wife and I are the only occupants in the house 99.8% of the time. But, on occasion there are visitors (we live in Orlando) locally and from out-of-town. In your estimation, if you were twice that distance from your TV, sitting right at center position, how far to either side...

    Sony X950G?

    When reading others' reviews that pertain to viewing angle, they involve distances between TV and person on average of being 6 to 10 feet. Our seating area is located approximately 18' from where our TV is/will be located. When I move from the most wide angles, across center to the other side...

    65" that will replace the 62" we had in the living room.

    Sony X950G?

    Haven’t bought a new TV since 2006 (Mitsubishi WD-62628 DLP), and I’m gobsmacked by the leap in technology and learning curve I’m on. I’m looking for a 65" unit that has a great picture, wide viewing angle (for 18' between seats and TV), and very good to good “everything else”. Seems it’s hard...

    Thoughts & Experience with this Television

    Yes, I would buy it new. That explains why there seems to be some good deals out there on this particular unit. Perhaps I should look a little deeper - to see if there's a design/performance reason why it's discontinued. Saw it for $1200 and change on ABCTV's, but they look like they have an...

    We are your basic over-the-air broadcast and streaming content viewers. Movies, sports, the usual fare. No games will be played on this unit.

    Mitsubishi WD-62725 DLP TV turning off by itself....

    Thanks, JohnRice. I'm right there with you...logically. It's the thought of this huge TV, where somewhere above 95% of its components work as they should, and only one is causing this malfunction, sitting on the curb and adding to a landfill, bothers me. We are buying a new TV for our main...

    Mitsubishi WD-62725 DLP TV turning off by itself....

    Johnny, Did you replace the thermal sensor yourself? If you did, can you do it without taking the entire back panel off?

    Mitsubishi WD-62725 DLP TV turning off by itself....

    I bought a Mits WD-62628 in 2006. Worked pretty flawlessly minus new bulb purchases every 3 to 5 years or so until about 2015. Started having the problem everyone has expressed...picture freezes, cuts off, green light blinks, goes quiet. Finally, in January 2019 it stopped working completely...
