I have really benefitted from the discussions on this bulletin board. This resulted in me getting my HS20 in July which connected to my HTPC looks superb. But now the downside: After about 150 hours and 2 months of ownership it went wrong. The dealer insisted on a repair rather than a swap out which I suppose is justifiable. With the repaired machine it lasted about 100 hours it went wrong again and went back to Sony again. Now it is back with me and . . . you guessed it, it has gone wrong again. My dealer (who I will keep anonymous) has been attentive throughout and delivered good service (notwithstanding they would not swap out the machine). But here I am now, finally the dealer agrees that the machine should not be repaired further but they have no more HS20s available. They are offering an HS50 for an additional £100. Do I take it? I note the HS50 does not have DVI connectivity. I spent a whole weekend routing the cables under the floor boards. It is worse resolution (1388 -> 1280) And being brand new it might be less reliable (Ohmigod! ) It has the superb contrast but is not as bright which means I need even better light control in the room. Your expert opinions are appreciated.
