Saw this and even though it was running a crappy feed i was inpressed with its viewing angles as it was on a top shelf about 1 meter above my head it was still clear and not faded ? by comparsion the 50" samgung DLP set faded quite a lot vertically i also thought the stand on the samsung was totally impractical but besides that the Sony although much bulkier looking made the picture seem larger and the whole look of the unit was one of a big movie screen one to impress the lads when they visit although the sammy would impress the women i expect. i thought the sony LCD sets were meant to be rubbish. isn't it just the case that if you run a DVI/VGA basically the highest picture quality available into a LCD/Plasma/DLP/LCD-Rearpro Screen that they will all pretty much be a fantastic image compared with what we were seeing in the past on our 28" widescreens with scarts but at 50" because from what i've seen the prices of Plasma are really cheap and so are LCD screens. if they all cost the same for 50" would you still have a DLP or would you choose a plasma with HD. what exaclty is wrong with the sony Sx300u ?
