Are reporting that Sony is dropping their RPTV's for LCD!
San Diego – Sony will exit the rear projection TV category to focus on flat-panel LCD TV after current inventories of its 3LCD- and SXRD-based products are exhausted, a company spokesman confirmed.
“We are moving our resources more toward LCD TV, because that’s what people really want,” a Sony spokesman said, confirming a published report.
This is surprising to me because for the last couple of years Sony's SXRD line in general & the XBR series in particular have been the best RPTV's in the market.
I'm glad I have my 70" XBR2 & by the time it's ready to be replaced I hope there will be LCD's & Plasmas that size for a reasonable price.
