Great price considering this TV was £2300 when it came out last Octoberish. Bought mine last week for £1379 but the price dropped this morning to £999. Cheapest on the high street is £1299 at Comet but no extra warranty. Mine arrived yesterday and cracking TV for the money.

Why cold, a 55inch Sony tv with free delivery & 5 year warranty for £999, voted hot here.
It's cos people prefer flatscreens, despite a much inferior picture (LCDs have hugely worse contrast and response times, plasmas have half the resolution).
hot hot hot:thumbsup:

Product Information

Bring the cinema experience home with the humongous 55 inch KD55A20S11XTNS rear projection TV from Sony. This beast of a TV delivers wonderfully smooth pictures thanks to its unique SXRD panel and full high definition 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Sony’s flagship picture enhancement technology ‘Bravia Engine Pro’ ensures outstanding colour and clarity while the exceptionally high 10,000:1 contrast ratio produces more depth, richness and picture detail, with blacks that are truly black.

The KD55A20S11XTNS also features Live Colour Creation technology which combines circuitry, backlight and a colour filter to create a picture which is more realistic and natural to the human eye, resulting in deeper greens and reds. And its super-fast 2.5 response time will reduce any blur on fast moving action sequences and sports coverage.

It’s ready to receive high definition broadcasts and has an integrated digital tuner for access to Freeview digital channels. It’s also equipped with 2 HDMI sockets, enabling you to connect both a high definition box and DVD player. Includes a cabinet stand.

This television is ‘high definition ready’ which means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.

Plus another £40 in quidco and there must be at least a £20 off £100 kicking about, isn't there?

£940 sounds even better than £999 don't you think?
I know there still a lot thicker than LCD's but rear projection tv's have got a lot thinner in recent years, worth considering if you want a very large tv without needing a mortgage.
thanks chaps, re: the thickness factor, really only comes into play with LCD/PLASMA if you are going to hang it on the wall else they take up just as much room when placed on a stand.

I am more than pleased, upgrading from the previous 3LCD version and a marked improvement especially with no screen door effect I had before. Contrast and black levels are much better than LCD and no smearing whatsoever with fast moving pictures. Been playing around with it using a Blu-Ray version of Casino Royale which dropped through my letterbox this morning, all for registering my PS3 online - didn't even know I was getting it :-D
Yeah I fancy one of these but I would be sitting around 7.5 foot away from it - would that be too close?

Only a tiny bit - the ideal is 8.5 feet. At 7.5 feet you're fine with HD sources, although poor SD will look really poor. Not too surprising really, when you're sitting that close to a screen that's 1.4 metres from diagonal to diagonal, it really shows up flaws in the source :-)
Saw one of these set up in Makro last week (£999+VAT) and it looked stunning.

Sorely tempted but need to find a home for my 42" Toshiba RP :-(

That would be using default settings too, and the defaults look like crap compared to a fully calibrated set. Stores never set these up properly, and on top of that bright lights in places like Makro are really bad for RPTVs.

as per arfster, if you thought that looked good wait until you have it at home and set up properly with tweaked custom settings and being fed an HD signal.

Not as wonderful with SD stuff but then again why buy this set if you want to watch SD.
Yep - I know only too well from when I first set up the Tosh that with a bit of tweaking they improve massively.

After giving it time to settle in, I spent about an hour doing the engineering convergence - it looked brilliant afterwards and has done ever since.

I think I could just do with another 13"
All gone now
that was quick :)
