why not buy sony kdl40ex500?
OK, our old 36 XBR Sony tube finally died. I've ordered this set to replace it. Is there a reason NOT to buy it? ($800 from Abt. Just under $1000 for delivery, full connection with all our stuff, removal of old set, taxes.)
This is our main TV, connected to DirecTV, Yamaha tuner and sound suround, plain Toshiba DVD player, Wii system. My laptop is nearby. Room has large north-facing window. TV goes into a bookshelf cubby that's 40 wide X 30 high X entirely too deep now! LOL
We are retired and frequently watch DVD's often from our library. Is the future going to be no DVD's -- movies ordered from my PC and streamed to our TV? This set has no WiFi. (It also has no LED border, which I'm thinking is a positive, not a negative; am I right?)
