Has anyone purchased the new SONY WEGA TV with their new SXRD technology? I wonder what other people think of the silicon display technology for high resolution HD. I am shopping for a big size one and I only knew of LCD, DLP and plasma.

I don't know SXRD technology but the Sony KDL-V32XBR1 flat panel LCD TV gets a very nce review in the May/June issue of Home Entertainment magazine.

A great Sony resource:
I used those forums a lot when researching my tv purchase a year ago (Sony LCD).

SXRD isn't new... been around since 2003 in their high-end Qualia models. It's just another version of a rear-projection LCD, albeit with smaller and more densely packed pixels. SXRD technology is Sony's answer to Texas Instruments' DLP (digital light processing) technology.

You hvae to decide if you want the expense and hassles of lamp replacement or not with that or DLP, and go from there.

If you want a micro-display HDTV the SXRD is the best one out there. The SXRD has gotten rave reviews on C-net as well as various HD magazines, etc.

I have the 50" SXRD and the reviews are right, it is the best looking projection TV ever tested. 3 of my friends have purchased them after seeing mine. I see no hassle in changing a $200 bulb every approx 8,000 hours. It's well worth it to have the best TV. DLP doesn't look nearly as good as the SXRD, and regular LCD projo's are a joke in comparison. I work part time at Sears and the SXRD haunted me all the time, so after I bought my X-Box 360 I decided I had to have a HDTV for it, so the SXRD was the only TV I would have considered. If I couldn't have bought the SXRD I would not have bought a HDTV.
