    Seems like a reasonable deal - Sony KF-50SX200TNS-U 50" Grand Wega for 2499.99 plus vat (I assume) for £2938.

    Thats a BIG TV :)

    lus the Sony HTP1000 for 249.99 plus vat - £294. Still on sale at RGB for 345 - so a pretty good deal!

    i noticed this too...... i dont recall the set getting such great reviews mind you, and given you can get a decent plasma for less (albeit a bit smaller), it probably isnt as top a deal as i first thought

    This TV is an LCD rear projection set, based on the workings of the VPLVW10 or 11 front projector.

    It has 3 million pixels (1m for each colour) approx.

    As an LCD projector it will have

    1: No detectable convergence errors
    2: No detectable geometry errors
    3: No detectable picture 'bounce'
    4: No effect from external magnetism
    5: No visible scan line structure - even on non-anamorphic NTSC material zoomed up

    but

    1: Possible dead pixels - check before you buy - they are unlikely to fail during use, but there may be some DOA
    2: Blacks which are dark grey, not black
    3: A lamp with a limited lifespan (but is user replaceable). Guess at about 4 years' use depending on how heavily it is used.
    4: Some have commented on poor colour uniformity but I'd consider it to be well within viewing tolerance
    5: Some fan noise
    6: Viewing angle on a par with RPTVs generally, but more limited than Plasma, regular CRT and newer LCDs.

    That, I don't know. But I doubt it. It's marketed as a TV, not a display device.
