Nice TV this - I've got the 50 inch version. Note the bulbs cost £200 each though

Hi,

That's a good price but think that post needs the following added....

You can get a new one for £649 at [url]www.fairwayselectronics.co.uk[/url] but the link does take you to an ebay store. However they do have a high street presence and a delivery option so thought it was worth mentioning.

The fairwayselectronics site lists this as a 2.7mega pixel unit? Doesn't that mean it's got a resolution of approaching 2206x1241? Isn't that rather high?

Especially given that the vertical only really needs to be 1080 to cover everything that HD can do anyway? Does this mean NOTHING will be native resolution and everything has to be scaled? I'm confused...

Or maybe it's got rectangular pixels? Tell me sony, what's the point of quoting that as your screen spec!?

Also, Don't worry too much about bulb prices, my 4 year old samsung RPTV is still on it's first. The only giltch is that the screen is 35cm deep, which means it takes up valuable room space!

*edit - pipped to the post!

Why is this so cheap?

Am I missing something here? £650 for a 42" LCD bravia?

It's a rear projection model, so the picture is not up to LCD quality to put it mildly. Think Plasma through a frosted window and you're getting there.
#10
The Sony Bravia 40" LCD from Argos on Christmas day is a much better alternative, but costs £905 delivered...
#11
I disagree, a properly set up good Rear Projection screen will have an excellent picture quality on par with Plasma and LCD. Some models have slightly limited viewing angles which can occasionally be a problem depending on your room layout etc.
#12
Thanks for the feedback UndeadCretin :) The 40" LCD with its 178 degree viewing angle removes that problem very well.
#13
Just be careful with Hyperfi they do advertise some good deals but I have been down to collect items a few times and each time they did not have any available except higher priced or different versions. And this was 1/2 hour after I had rung them to check they had it available and they said yes it was.

Personally I prefer my 50 inch version of this to a 42 inch plasma I had before. The upscaling on a standard definition signal is excellent.
The only downside is the bulb cost but they're available at $199 from the US.
#15
For what it's worth, generally RPTVs have a very good reputation when compared to Plasma and LCD, especially in the longevity stakes (replace the bulb and you're at 100% again), and the reliability stakes (the LCD panels are tiny and are unlikely to have dead pixels, not true of large panels.)

[SIZE=2]I still quite like my 4 year old 47" Samsung RPTV, if I had the money I'd proabably go plasma/LCD wall mount, but that's just because of the space issues, not the quality.[/SIZE]

Not necessarily true - the latest rear projection HDTVs have a picture to annihilate any LCD up to double the price (mainly down to having ten times the contrast ratio).

This one doesn't admittedly, but you still get a nice filmic quality to the picture.

Something really weird going on here... Many old deals coming back as hot... Is anyone gaming the system?
