no1cwbyfan, I purchased the kdf-55xs955 model about 4 months ago and I don't have any complaints. Watching basketball in HD during March Madness was great and I am not even a basketball fan. I am waiting for football season. I watch alot of DVDs and I haven't seen any issues either. I have no regrets about the technology or model. It has an awesome picture!
Just bought an 55xs955 Sony and it looks awesome! I had Comcast split the cable so that I can enjoy HD and to give me a better signal for SD viewing. Do you think I should replace the cables/splitter received from Comcast? or are these cables fine to use? Also, it has an DVI or HDMI interface (can not remember). Should I take advantage of this interface?
Just bought 55xs955 and watched our first DVD ("Finding Nemo") on our new DVD player (Denon 1910). We saw the display approximately half way into the movie. Turned the remote around as other people have done and it resolved the issue. Perhaps, it was the delay when the DVD was switching layers/sides or whatever the proper terminology should be?
I am ready to purchase the 55xs955 LCD and was wondering what people thought about getting another stand besides the sony stand (su-gw12). I like the idea of the TV being strapped into the stand but not the price. Is this TV that top heavy that it needs to be strapped into the stand? Thanks in advance.
Bigairmair, I would read BB ESP again to insure you can replace the bulb as you indicated. I was reading Tweeters and a local Hi-Fi stores' contract and both contracts have conditions when a bulb can be replaced (ie. bulb completely burned out, mfr message appears indicating that lamp must be replaced, # of hours which mfr has indicated for useful life of lamp has been reached) Just a heads up.
jehill, are you saying that the DVI/HDMI interfaces are NOT better than the component interfaces? I was under the impression that the DVI/HDMI interfaces would provide the TV a better picture because a conversion was not necessary. [ This message was edited by: TA-PSU on 2005-02-02 20:37 ]
I have a sales person pushing the DLP technology (Mits WD5275). He is telling me that the LCD (Sony xs955) is not a true digital TV compared to the DLP technology because the LCD needs to some form of conversion (analog to digital). Is this true or is this guy trying to sell me a bag of goods?
After reading many reviews pros/cons, there seems to be many issues with this relatively new technology (LCD/DLP). Originally, I was going to purchase Sony's KDF-55xs955 model but I have been deterred away from this model because of the pixel burn in issue that could occur over time (sales person stressing the issue...). According to one sales person, my best option would be to purchase the Mitsubishi WD52725 which would eliminate the pixel issue. There are so many reviews slamming the WD52725 model that I am not sure which model to choose if any. It appears that the WD52725 mode ..
