Crossing my fingers

 

We bought this set for christmas 05 (family gift) as a discounted "open box" for $1800 US. Plugged in, it had a amazing picture and sound. 2-3 months later, red vertical lines showed up after 2-3 hours of use. Called warrenty, repair dudes hauled off...

Beautiful HD cable channels, decent sound, fabulous plasma-like cabinet, narrow depth, decent blacks

Screen splotches, corner green overshoot, consistency, SD (especially TIVO with green highlighting everywhere)

Just bought 50VS810

 

When I started looking for a big TV, I realized that the majority of my viewing for the next few years would be DVDs and SD TV. I ruled out a plasma (my first choice-Panasonic was the best)because my kids wanted a TV that they could play video games...

looks, SD picture, 2 HDMI inputs

not a plasma
