Hey! I finally took the plunge and came into the world of big screen hdtv(pic below). I can't tell you how great it is to finally be able to enjoy a movie on a large screen tv. Not to mention a Sony HDTV. Great picture. Yes, I do see the flashes of green from time to time that some have mentioned when moving my eyes, mostly on white text. But that just seems to be one of the anomalies of projection tv. I don't find it distracting. The picture is so good looking. Projection televisions have sure come a long way. I Never would have considered a projection tv a couple of years ago. But man, with the prices being what they are, and with the quality you get for the money, I couldn't pass. I can't wait to get some hi-def programming on it. I am finding that I'm a little bit more apt to use the zoom function when watching regular tv and old movies because of my fear of the evil burn-in. But I think I'll get over that eventually. For some reason the remote won't control my satellite receiver. So I have to use two remotes at the same time. I mean their ARE only two major satellite providers correct? How can they not have a code for my Dish receiver?? I guess I'll either have to buy a new remote or use my Dish remote to control the tv and forget about the fancy features on the Sony remote. Man it's a big tv. I can't imagine having one any bigger. Well a bigger one wouldn't fit anyway as you can see. And a bigger one would never make it up the stairs. This tv is almost too big. I gotta tell you, I was a little overwhelmed when I sat down to watch my first DVD. I'm setting back about 10 feet or so. Seems to be just about the right distance. I do watch it closer when I'm at my computer like I am now, but I don't get the sense of space and composition like I do when I'm in my recliner. The only problem with a having a tv that's almost 20 inches larger than my other tv is that it's now going to be hard to ignore the image flaws of less than perfect DVDs. As you can see it's on a wire rack. It's made by Wiretech which most home improvement stores carry. It's just the right size. I lucked out for sure on that one. I like the look of it to--kind of sleek and modern looking. LIke the tv itself. I don't have a surround system for it or Monster cables and all of that yet. That's my next big purchase. I'm a man of humble means. I paid just over 1400 from Best Buy. That price included me choosing home delivery btw. I passed on the extended warranty. 200 and some bucks for that. I don't think so! This is most assuredly a major purchase for me. So I'll have to get everything in stages instead of all at once. I gotta admit. I don't consciously see any difference between the different picture modes. Cinemotion with it's 3/2 pulldown and Interlaced along with Progressive pretty much look the same to me. Maybe a professional calibration would change that. I'll have that done sometime down the road. But anyway, I'm very happy with my new hdtv the way it is now. Size was the most important thing to me anyway--so long as it had a good picture which this tv absolutely has. I hope everyone here gets a chance to own a nice tv like this one someday. It really will change your home video experience. Any questions or advice?
