If you're really concerned, you can buy a higher end model. Like the Sony
Bravia XBR series. Not just the regular XBR, but they
have different levels of XBR (XBR3 is the highend, i think). Wait wait...
XBR is the model, It looks like the engine is called:
Bravia Engine 2, or Bravia Engine 2 Pro. Looks like the "2 Pro" is the
If you get the higher end version, you won't have any of those issues listed
I'm not advocating for Sony, but it's the first one that comes to mind as
having the higher end engine.
If I were you, i'd go for this one:
Tho, you may have to sell a kidney, or a car or something.
I have a Sharp Aquos, I like it very much, I don't have any of the problems
you mention below, and it's not the higher end version.
There is some Motion Blur, but not enough for me to complain about it. I
have more problems with the stupid DVR box from cox.
It locks up and hiccups and other trash that makes me mad.
I also recommend buying from Circuit City. Well, as long as they stay in
business. I started out looking at buying from Sears, but
they were out of stock that day. So I ended up at Circuit City for two
reasons. One, Circuit City matched the price that Sears was
offering. Two, because the price for warranty at Sears was about 1/3 the
cost of the TV whereas the price at Circuit City, for my TV, was $180. Much
cheaper. And the warranty from CC said they would replace the TV even if 1
pixel went bad. That's what mostly sold
me. Now, lets hope they don't go out of business, then my fancy warranty
