These are really nice but obviously a little more bulky than an LCD or a plasma. Just look at the prices tumble though.
#2
Wooooooooowa that's cheap.
#3
And just £4.95 delivery! Verrryyyy tempting. :w00t:
#5
One of my friends has this, he paid over 300 quid more (must tell him) and games on the xbox 360 are just incredible on it.

I got one of these for £1100 about 18 months ago - brilliant set. Much better picture than most LCDs or Plasmas especially in HD!

If you are viewing from straight on yes. From an angle it starts to suffer. But I agree brilliant picture.

no HDMI port. Cheap deal though!
#9
I've just been paid my annual bonus and a 50" telly does sound appealing. Now all I have to do is knock a couple of walls through and convince the missus that Eastenders looks better when the heads on telly are bigger than your entire body.

Voted HOT!

aye. I was going by Edi's description when I made my first post.

3D view of it on Sony's site for those that are interested:

Seems an even better deal with 2 HDMI ports.

These TVs are great my parents have one. Just as a word of warning though, check out the replacement lamp prices before you buy.

How long do the lamps last and do you have a rough idea of the replacement prices?

To extend the lamp life of your rear projection television one recommended action is to change the default color setting (and contrast) you are using to watch TV. Most rear projection televisions are delivered with their color setting on the brightest picture setting, which can reduce the estimated lamp life to less than half. The manufactures set it to the highest contrast and brightness settings because it looks best on the showroom floor of your local electronics store.

Most rear projection televisions come with three presets. For example, the Sony's LCD rear projection TVs has three presets Vivid, Standard and Pro. Vivid is the preset the KDS-R60XBR1 is set to when first taking it out of the box. The "Vivid" setting will lessen the life of the lamp to approximately 3600 hours because it is the brightest setting. The "Standard" setting will extend to about 5300 hours of lamp life and "Pro" will further extend the lamp life to around 8000 hours.

Here is a checklist of what to do to get the most out of your lamp:

Check out the presets and select the setting with the lowest light output.
Once you've done that adjust the brightness down to your liking. The lower the brightness the long the lamp will last.
Check and clean the air filters on a monthly basis. Having a clean air filters means that your lamp has better airflow. Air is what is used to cool the lamp and the cooler your lamp runs the longer it will last.

Ah whoops I was misinformed... Stupid internet :P

Just ordered this but what is a HMDI port? :?

HDMI carries HD signal to the TV. Much better picture quality.
The PS3 for example requires a HDMI cable plugged to the HD TV to provide the best possible picture quality.

The Xbox/Xbox360 don't have HDMI output. Component is the best you can get for these

sorry no idea what this is, I am no good with tehcnology :oops:

So apart from a PS3 what would plug into the HDMI?
#25
Its basically a brillaint SCART connection for HD signals. Ie it carries sound and picture signals. All you can plus in via HDMI is HDMI enabled DVD players (normally upscaling ones) certain HDD recorders, Blu-Ray players and HD-DVD players. It isnt a major issue at the moment but when this stuff gets cheaper its better to have 2 or more for say a HDD recorder, your PS3 or DVD/HD-DVD/Blu Ray player.:thumbsup:
#26
I'd be scared of the bulb/cost fiasco. I have a front projection system which I love to pieces, but those lamp hours do indeed fly by... (even though I mainly used mine for movies/gaming and obviously Top Gear and the Grand Prix).

I'm not entirely convinced they're for day-to-day viewing.

Wouldn't they be covered under the guarantee anyway ;-)
#29
I dont think so. This is where they make even more money. I'd go for a sexy plasma myself. Otherwise a cheaper but ultimately (if in a small room) and LCD.

What you save in money for RPTV bulbs, you lose from a plasma's massive electricity usage (and more than). LCDs have similar low power consumption to RPTVs though.

Incidentally, it's possible to buy bulbs for most RPTVs from ebay or various other places for around £100. I bought one for my Sagem from China for about £75 (don't need it yet, but in two years it might not be available).

Oh, and rear projector bulbs last about 6000-9000 hours, depending on how high you set brightness and how big the set is. If you have it on 4 hours a day, that's four to six years.

I would change your electricity company. :thumbsup:

Plasma uses anywhere between 10% and 30% more electricity than an LCD, hardly breaking the bank.

Bulbs are not covered by a guarantee unless they die before their expected life cycle.

How long would be classed as "expected life cycle"?

Well, put it this way:


Sony 46" Bravia XBR2 LCD: 227W
Sony 55" SXRD RPTV: 210W

Both fairly tyical of their sizes. Now look at plasmas:

[SIZE=2]Philips 50PF9631D 50": 400W[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Toshiba 50HP66: 460W[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Pioneer PDP 507XD: 348W[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]200 Watts more totals +1400KWh over the 7000 hour life of a bulb, and that's around £120 on even cheap suppliers.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]

Here's a really funky site I just found. This TV is not featured but there are tons of Plasma / LCD screen power consumption charts.
My plasma came 2nd in the 42" test, woot :)

Whilst you're there compare the power requirements of all our fancy next gen consoles:shock:

Nice find, my 42" plasma (same as yours) uses 270w, can only see a few 42" LCD's and they use between 228W and 260W, hardly any difference at all really. Works out about a tenner cheaper for the year with the LCD's

Good site, isn't it :) I feel sorry for any poor sod that owns a Samsung LE32M61B - Wow, what a juice guzzler!

Can't remember, just do a Google and it will tell you. Obviously if it goes within a few hundred hours short fo it's expected life cycle you will not be covered, but if it dies within a reasonable time peroid then you will be covered under the sale of goods act.

Please take into consideration that the manufacturers give estimated times, most last a fair bit longer.

That surprises me, Panasonic bulbs have built in measures to try and prevent you pushing them beyond their estimates. It's meant to reduce the possibility of one having an expensive explosion inside your equipment.
