The review won't go live at least until 12/1/07. I think it might be 1/1/08.

belizebound,

If you are trying to bring this TV into Belize, you might want to check out the import taxes. A good friend of mine is moving to Costa Rica to start a bed and breakfast fishing place and the taxes for electronics are EXTREME! Hopefully for you (if you are going there) the Belizians are more mild!

Default Excise taxes

I agree with Ken on this and will add that the Sony importer there might not cover the warranty.

I would likely buy it there.

Just for the hell of it I went to my local Best Buy yesterday (after dumping the wife and mother-in-law off at Marshals) and looked at all the offerings, since I'm considering a new TV too.

The Sony looked very good to me... but everyone seems to look for different things in TV's - just like everyone seems to like different things in the audio system. Go check them out in person and see what you like best - this is very important when it comes to sizing too.

I was considering a 60" - but when I "get real" and consider how close my couch is to where my TV is going to be I think it's a bit much. To my eye a 55" is a better fit.

To those with a 70" - unless you are about 30' away it would be way overwhelming to me - and be reminiscent of sitting on the front row of a movie theater like when I was 12 and trying to get to first base with Kelly Davis - but I digress....

My point is.... everyone likes different things so go check them out for yourself!


PS - Yes I got to first base with Kelly - then she dumped me... and then I got to 2nd base with her best friend Shannon!

Jim,

I use the 70' Sony, and by current guidelines my 12' viewing distance is the MAX, I could be as close as 8'!
