Well i use my lcd as a Pc monitor,so surfing web,gaming,watching movies all on a 40 inch screen,i have upgraded to 4 mbps net speed so i just download & watch,i dont watch tv unless its F1 season.
And 42 is a good price for your lcd,i guess mine cost 58 a yr back not sure,your lcd price has impressed me,i shall pick one this week,you facing any glitches with it?
no glitches so far :touchwood:
i too was inclined for a sony because it had an option for extended warranty.
Then others mentioned that lcds in general will not cause any problems if you take the necessary precaution like spike guard, or voltage stabilizer where fluctuations are a regular occurance.
It was tied until the format showdown i had in the showroom where samsung could play each and every format thrown at it whereas the sony 40 cx 420 could play some limited formats.
So picked the samsung.
@type r please do post your pictures.
also you stay in a place where HDTV are dirt cheap
a sony 32"cx420 for 7k.
and a sony NX720 for about 80k which retails in india at about 1.80L
Ya i have that spike guard installed too & i did know lcd's were cheaper in Bangkok but not to that extent,a friend went with his relatives to buy some high end lcd 2 months back so i am sure he must have made alot of savings & got a vacation at the same time.
Ya the Sony does not play all formats,my friends has a 46 led 3d Sony i guess its the same with that,but with 3D tv you got to sit really close to experience anything & usually a dark environment,but Sony has more eye candy value than any other brand,
hey Superbad did you have to bargain for your Lcd at that price or it was a ready offer or exchange?
