Sony has delayed again the official 3D Display until End of March 2012.
600 euros..what a rip off. In the US it's 400$
there are also a bundle including a PS3 for 700 Euro
either way it was always a ripoff . For the same price you get actual 3dtv , some bigger , just minus the fancy split screen -less system or a better pc monitor
samsung TVs. nuff said
I do like Samsung and recently bought a 51" and after some picture adjustments love it! The only complaint is unlike Sony TVs, Samsung style isn't as sexy. Samsung makes solid quality product, but really needs to step it up and design something awesomely sexy. That said, I'm in the market for a smaller TV for the bedroom and thinking of another Samsung despite prefer Sony TVs in the recent past.
i spent 1400 on a sony 46" led bravia 3D in april of 2011, and all i can say is dont touch sonys 3D offerings with a stick! i got a sony because i expected quality, and the 3D is terrible! normal and HD is very nice, but the 3D has horrendous cross-talk, and breaks down when you have depth to the picture.. what is worse, because when i got my tv, it was a new model, there was no reviews for it! but after buying, seeing the 3D, then reading the reviews..... fuck is the word that springs to mind. if you want active 3D, gt a samsung or panasonic. but for the best 3D at home, get an lg. zero cross-talk on the cinema sets
I've seen it on sale for $299. But the big mistake they made with this display is trying to sell a 24 inch screen in a country where 32 inches is considered small. There just isn't much of a market for such small tv's in North America.
I agree! I don't know who would buy a tunerless 24" TV (aka monitor) when they can get a 32"-42" real TV for less despite the 3D feature? The other day I saw a 40" LCD for $300 at amazon.com shipped to your door. Still want that 24" Sony monitor for $300? Most people don't consider 3D feature a good replacement for double the screen size. On top of that, the 3D feature is mostly used occasionally and the increase in screen size is very significant at that small TVs. I don't know what monkey did the market research for Sony, but they should have delayed it in the US and released in Europe. At least there, they have a little more room to wiggle when it comes to pricing.
The size wouldnt have been more accepted in europe , and has it would have been priced higher , it would have destroyed whatever value it could have in the eyes of many eu customers .
Not worth the price nor the purchase, demoed one @ a local sony store. For that price it's too small,Subwoofers is sub-par quality, and picture quality when playing the split-screen mode is greatly reduced.
Dear SONY, maybe you didn't hear, but you aren't the only company that makes great tv's anymore. You can't afford to be expensive.
real prob was some of their fancy hdtv werent even that good , even among the high end priced ones , and just overselling the brand . Before some disagrees , just look it up . Some models had mediocre 3d and/or just ok picture quality , AND/OR massive input lag and/or not so good Blacks at sometimes double the price of some panasonic , viewsonic , samsung and even lg stuff , of equivalent or superior quality . There is only so long you can have people blindly buying bravias without looking at specs . Now some are excellent , but that's too much hassle for regular customers , just like they can't bother with pc parts
anyone buying consumer products based on brand alone is an idiot. You have to do your research as all companies have their good and bad products, and the price doesn't necessarily tell you which is which.
Sony as a company that is supposed to essentially pioneer 3D TVs, they by far has one of the worst 3D implementation. Some of the Sony TVs suffer from 3D cross talk. Look it up on the AVS forums or do a quick search. That said, my 40" Sony Bravia TV I bought on clearance 4-5 years ago for $1200 was a steal at the time compared to a similar 42" Vizio for $1100 is a fantastic TV. I even tried the Sharp that was similarly priced and was nowhere near as good. Problem is, if the Sony TV wasn't on clearance (and I Sears did major discounts on top of it), the TV would have costed $2500! Some of the Sony products are awesome, but almost always without fail the PRICING is NOT! If you are like kneon (I am), then you will almost always fine something lower priced that performs almost equally (and in some instances better) as Sony products. Heck I just bought a new TV and we ended up with a Samsung despite me preferring a Sony as they are rather stylish.
Yeah i'm a Panasonic viera plasma fan so far , based on criteria such as input lag , color and picture quality in both hd and 2d , level of blacks and dead last 3d . Bat yeah lately Samsung have been no slouch either , and is even fixing their few issues like input lag @gamingdroid Below . Dont have links ready but avs mostly got a few input lag related and input lag wars threads
i warther save my money and wait untill they make a bigger one like 32inch
Man-o-man, so much negativity towards this Display. Many of you don't understand the purpose of it and no, you can't get many 3D TVs for less than $500. Couple that with a Display that does things no TV on the market does, packs in a game, and is tailored made for gaming, and the thing reeks of value. Oh well, judging from most of these comments, I'm talking to the wrong crowd.
It is a matter of fact that you can get a likely priced 3d display that is bigger . I dont know how it matters if it's 3 differents brands or 10 . Who cares if its many ? It does something that is unique indeed , but hardly something that would make it win by default comparisons and a primarily sought out game feature . Again minus the split screen unique feature , a few other screens are relatively better . "tailored made for gaming" Not so much at that size with buttons in the rear and no remote . Also for a LED monitor that promotes a 240Hz refresh rate, you'd expect to see no ghosting what so ever. Unfortunately, some found the level of ghosting to be on par with what we would expect to see from a 60Hz LCD. (and yes it is an existing quite documented issue) The response and general input lag for the screen is good , but nothing groundbreaking either for a so called tailored for gaming screen . Simulview is great , but it will be better when it reach other bigger , better screens someday . There is a good reason it wasnt setting the world ablaze , be it among regular folks or screen tech aficionados , beyond the cool factor of Simulview , and already getting price cuts and delays
Are there any resources to locating TVs with minimal input lag? I bought a Samsung 51" D490 plasma for $600 and haven't noticed anything yet... It's 720p so is intended purely for gaming, but will be rarely used.
It doesn't have to set the world ablaze, and in fact, nobody implied that it did. However, it is receiving much undeserved hate as well. Plus, for every negative point you claim people have made, there are a bazillion other positives that accompany it. My issue is most people here are judging a device they've yet to use themselves, or use for an extensive amount of time, yourself (admittedly) included. I can understand not wanting to drop $400-500 on a Display/TV or whatever, but let's be realistic. I have yet to use a PS Vita, but is it fair to call it a "rip-off", "failure", or "bad" when I have not spent time with it?
sony have been behind in the tv market for sometime its all about samsung tvs and the whole playstation tv pricing etc shows how little they think of the intellect of their consumers
It aint coming and who really cares? Nobody was going to buy it anyway.
Maybe they should just recall all the unsold units that are currently in stock collecting dust here in the states?
^ ^ There's my point Baka: Stuff like this invites people who are known to trash a specific brand any chance they get, overshadowing the more fair and realistic (even if they don't favor the product) comments. And people call it a "TV" when it isn't marketed as such.
