My mum phoned me the other day and asked, wuite out of the blue, if would like a 50" Sony rear projection LCD HD TV as a sort of belated moving in and christmas present. http://www.sony.co.uk/view/ShowProd...Type=Overview&category=TVP+Rear+Projection+TV Argos have them on offer from £1400 to £999 and they would be paying for it buy and intrest free credit agreement. After the shock it took me a while to think about it, as there are a few things im worried about. 1: REAR PROJECTION Now, to be rear projection seems a solution to the problem og large glass heavy screens, now that we have LCD and Plasma can they still cut it? 2: CONNECTIONS In 1 part of the description from the Sony web site it states that it has 2 HDMI connecters both with HDMP, but in another section it dosn't mention them at all. Worried. 3: BULB LIFE AND COST How long do the bulbs last for? I know there priecy but how much? The site again has no details 4:NOISE With th exception of the switch on de guass my old 32" Sony is silent, but how noisy are rear projectors? In the end i am still very tempted by my parents offer, but i lack any real world experience with rear projection screens. Help!, and thanks for reading!
