It looks like I won't either. Won't buy any RCA or GE either.
I used to use RCA (because of a relative who did, I guess they were good
once). Never again. They fail quickly. The last TV I bought is Sanyo.
Is any brand any good?
=====================================For a high end TV some like Loewe, and Proton. but I reckon just because
one shells out big $$$$ for a TV doesn't necessarily insure longevity,
or lack of bugs. Buying any TV brand IMO is essentially a crap shoot
Many of the top of the line Sony's I've found have problems reproducting
anything less than an absolute perfect DVD input Signal. Digital Dish,
and VCR Tapes are reproduced poorly.
That was one of my personal dislikes with Sony.
With a Sony Digital Dish, many movies looked like I was watching a
dubbed Chinese Kung Fu Movie. The lips moved, and it appeared the voices
didn't match! lol Something no doubt attributable to Sony's Velocity
Sanyo, yeah great brand for the buck (Same with Samsung). Naturally,
they don't have as many on screen fancy adjustments, bells, and whistles
as a Sony, nor as good a picture all things being equal, but at least
with something like a $200 27" Flat Screen Sanyo, and it poops out after
2-3 years, you don't feel like commiting Hari Kari when the TV has to
hit the Garbage Dump.
I think with any costly Sony, or other high priced brand TV
(32-36-40-wide screens-HDTV etc) exceeding $600-$700, a wise investment
is an extended warrantee. Mark
