Default Re: What is the best rear projection HDTV currently?

I am new to the board. I am considering purchasing a Sony KDS-R70XBR2 HDTV that is a floor model for a reduced price. Do I have anything to worry about except for the wear on the tube?
Thanks, John

JJS,

There's no tube, micro mirror devices, but no tube.

I have the KDS-70XBR2, it's a great TV, one thing that can happen is the bulb can burn out. I don't know if the store you are buying it from still has it, but the TV comes with a replacement bulb when new, try to have them find it!

Great thread. I will be buying a new set after Christmas - hoping to get in on some of those great sales.

I need to try out this new fangled HD-DVD/Blu-Ray stuff I've been hearing so much about.

I just wrapped my review of the new KDS-55A3000 BRAVIA from Sony. $1,999.00 and 1080p with 120Hz and Motionflow. KILLER!!!

Smasung has gone backwards in picture quality from the HL-S lamp based series, which was by far their best DLP RPTV ever. Go with the Sony.
Kevin are these LED or non-LED sets you've been calibrating. Obviously the LED is a different lamp entirely.

When and where can we see the review? I am actively considering this TV. How do you think it compares with what's out there as well as the 58inch Panasonic Plasmas
