I was considering on buying a second hand (like new) Sony 51" projection TV, and thought I would google it just to find out some info on it, and this is what I found.

Just some food for thought before buying a Sony big screen Very happy If you have one, pray nothing goes wrong with it, or be prepaired to shell out some serious quid to have it fixed. Needless to say I won't be buying one Laughing

This is 8 people who googled for the same model and got to the same forum to bitch about it, out of a few hundred thousands. No one would go there to praise it. This is not an indicator of quality, just a sign that expensive shit can be unreliable, sometimes. But in general stay clear from projection TVs, you can get an LCD projector and a screen that allows projection from behind, and you will have the same shit, but much longer lasting, portable, bigger diagonal and reliable. Bulbs live 2000-3000 hours, $100-200 to replace.

I always had trouble with my sony tv's. They always fuck up. Trinitrons are the worst. Wegas are ok to a point"must be HD".

If you want a good tv go with a samsung. You go into any store they are the most clear and brightest out of the bunch. My gf has a elite 60in and a samsung 50 something. The samsung looks way better and the elite was like 10g's when they got it.

One word "SAMSUNG"

My girl has a trinitron that is at least 15 years old and still works great. My dad bought it back in the day, later gave it to me, and I recently gave it to her. You never know

You know I have heard this from a few different people now. I have also read that DLP's are better and more reliable then plasma's as well.

We have a Samsung (plasma) and a Toshiba (rear projector) both are great TV's. However, the Samsung picture is second to none, at 43" it has an incredible picture no matter at what angle you are sitting.

DITTO SAMSUNG!! Love
