  1. false.

    and panasonic is far cheaper than pioneer, check the post right above this.
  2. take a look at the latest panasonic plasmas they pretty much match the kuros for a lot less.

    And the new sony LCDs do look pretty amazing but they're not out yet <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
  3. are you talking about the LED back lit ones? those are crazy nice looking, but that tech is just too expensive, makes the kuro look reasonable.
  4. Yeah, I think he's talking about stuff like the XBR8 line.

  6. yep those are the ones. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
  7. I heard Hitachi won consecutive awards in Japan with their Plasmas..
  8. Anything is possible, but Pioneer's Kuro Pro is widely regarded as having the best picture quality ever.

  10. sony doesnt even make the displays.

    The supposed reliability is in no way sony's doing.

    and I cant say Ive known a single person with a TV thats died on them either.
  11. my lcdtv died on me 3 weeks ago.
  12. that sucks. Any clue what failed on it?
  13. power supply screwed up and fried the signal processor.

    Pretty much everything that is important failed at once.
  14. oh fun.
  15. I thought Sony's reliability image has been gone for a while.

    I personally always have issues with sony products.
  16. All I know is that while sony puts out many very nice products, they also put out a fair bit of trashy stuff (ie: their entire car audio lineup).
  17. Who made the tv?

    Who makes power supplies for tvs generally? the company itself or do they have others?
  18. I can only think of 3 things I have that have been made by Sony...

    PS2, headphones, and a CD/RW drive.

    The PS2 has tons of little issues but still works i guess, after all these years. The control though no longer vibrates.

    The headphones are crap [the silver around the back kind that were very popular a while back] and no longer work unless the wire is in the exactly right position.

    the cd drive is fine, but i very rarely use it since i have 3 drives...
  19. I realize that Samsung and possibly other companies make the panels for Sony, but all of the electronics that process the image are equally as important and those are all made by Sony themselves. But of course you already knew that fact. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    And I think Smilingoat has had at least 2-3 TVs fail on him within just the past year alone.
  20. the 32 and 37 inch are lcd.

  22. yeah, and my parents old CRT sony broke after a few years, luckily still under warranty. But still they had to have some board replaced.
