My NEW HDTV!

Recommended Posts

*RedBull*    608
Before I went to bed last night, I thought to myself.. i'll be home for the next month watching movies, playing games, waiting till college starts back up (aside from working part time), that I thought, why not buy a new TV to keep me entertained.

My current 37" 1080i (ha, yes i) doesn't cut it anymore, and with previous "image burn" problems with my current tv, I wanted a massive upgrade.

So I went out and purchased a brand new Sony Bravia 52" 1080p @ 120Hz model: KDL52W4100

I don't have to pay anything on it for 1 year (after that, I got to pay interest, but i'll end up paying it off this summer).

I talked the sales guy to give me a blu-ray player for $100 (BDPS350), which also came with 3 free blu-ray movies, but I purchased The Dark Knight on top of it all :)

The TV was too big to fit into my car, so it is being delivered tomorrow morning :o

That's Huge. I just bought a 37" Bravia myself. A friend of mine is jealous cause he paid 30% more than I did and got only a 32". Mines paid off BTW. :)

I originally wanted something around 40-50" mark, but the 52" was a great price, plus a blu-ray player for $100.. so I had to take the offer :p

Not a bad idea, and I doubt it would turn into any war.

People are usually just in "awe" when people get sweet HDTV setups, as opposed to trying to "flame" people over brands/styles. The show off your gaming setup topic is very popular.

I'm sure quite a few people will be getting new setups over Christmas as well (Y)

I create one now. Let's see how it turns out.

Go ahead and send it my way. I'll trade you my 42" plasma. Sound like a fair deal? ;)

Oh wow, 52" is huge, good luck and for best viewing isnt it recommended you watch movies further away from the screen for quality.

Yeah, I got 3 free movies:

- The devil wears prada

- iRobot

- Kingdom of Heaven

2 of them I didn't really want, nor have I watched those two, but iRobot is decent.

I also picked up The Dark Knight

and yes, my blu-ray player has BD Live

I bought a 47" in the summer, and I only had a medium sized apartment in the UK. At first it was overwhelming, but nowadays, I'm thinking I'd like to up the ante some more... Can't beat having a huge 1080p TV, especially if you're a console gamer! :)

Nice! I got the KDL-40W4000 and the Sony BDP-S550 and I'm absolutely blown away by it. The 40" seems gargantuan so I can't even comprehend what the 52" version must be like. I sit about 8-10ft away from my screen and it's JUST about right.

Watching the Dark Knight blu-ray was a rather eye opening experience, and playing my Xbox now is a thoroughly immersing experience. For those sitting on the fence, who still own <30" CRT's and have the money to do it, I really think now is the time. Watch one decent Blu-Ray movie and you will want one! :)

We have very similar set ups. check this post, and compare the tv to my xbox360 lol.

That was the 52", but I got a 46" now, because the 52" gave me headaches

P.S. the W models have an update for them, check online at sony.com and see if yours applys, it should. That blu-ray player has 9 updates I think

I have 55" Sony Bravia and it definitely isn't too big, now I would go with 65+. It's amazing how much 55" has shrinked since I bought it :D.

LOL, I know what you mean...

I bought a 50" TV and a 24" computer screen (well, it's in my iMac already) and it's unbelievable how much these things shrink with time :p

Now I would easily go with a 60" TV, but mine was so damn expensive (I bought it a year and a half ago and it's a panasonic plasma 1080p, from their best lineup) so I'm not changing it anytime soon :p
