Bought New TV..Opinions?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Went in wanting to buy a 47" 1080P 120hz LG tv that was on sale for $599 yesterday, but I went to frys and the price had bumped back up to $800+. So a guy told me they had this tv that was on sale and that I should take a look.

http://www.zdnet.com/reviews/product...hx800/34117963

Sony Bravia 40HX800

after comparing it to other similar LCD's and compared features, I took it.

Price $750

What do u guys think? was this a good deal or did I get suckered into something bad? The tv is internet ready, 3D ready, LED etc.

EDIT: quick question, should I buy the frys in store warranty for $250 (2 years)? or is this a waste, as most manufacturers warranty is good enough.

Its a badass TV. and DO NOT GET FRY'S WARRANTY! It sucks ass they suck ass and want you to suck it as well. Fry's has theeee worst warranty ever. Your better off with the Manufacture warranty.

Back to the TV, its a great TV very elegant and has an amazing reveal.

Sony sucks. Their products are pretty good but the customer service is the worst. Get an LG, Vizio, Samsung, etc.

I reckon that's all right for $750. But for watching 3D I personally would have gone for a bigger size if I had the money.

You didn't get suckered. $750 for the HX800 is a fantastic deal. It's that time of year where they're rolling out the 2011 TVs and need to clear out the old stock.

$250's a bit high for a 2yr store service plan. I'd say no, but it depends on their terms. Just register the TV online with Sony and you may get an extra 6 months.

Well this is for my bedroom. I think its perfect size for my room. I really wasn't looking for a 3D tv either, it was just a feature on it and for $750 I think its a great buy.

Maybe so, but 3D aside, it's a 40in (great for a bedroom or living room) 240Hz set. I was selling the same TV at Best Buy a year ago (minus 3D) for $1200-1300.

One of the better edge-lit sony hdtvs around. I would ignore the 3d and just enjoy the smooth motion processing.

I am sure you will enjoy =D

I did alot of reading and i <3 my full panel led vizio. 47 inches of high contrast beauty. Their high end stuff competes with sony and samsung no problem now plus they usually do slightly better in terms of price.

Good deal, but I'd go for size over quality. JMO though, I have a big living room and would love to run my HTPC at full 1080p res, but I can't see it from the couch on my 42". I would have rather had the 47" LG you listed than the 40" Sony.

EDIT: Just saw that it was for your bedroom. Should do just fine then.
