matt770 Posted December 9, 2009 Share Posted December 9, 2009 I held out as long as I could. The prices and quality of the HD sets out now, plus the new low price on the PS3 with Netflix, blu-ray and Web functionality were just too much for me to resist any longer. My main set for the past 12 years has been an old-fashioned 32-inch Toshiba. It did a great job and will still be used, but I'm upgrading to a 52 inch LCD and finally converting our basement into the main TV room which has been long overdue! So here's the deal: if you buy a Sony Bravia LCD TV, PS3 slim 120GB, PS3 game, and a blu-ray movie, you get a nice discount. They only let you choose between 3 games and 3 movies. The prices on those remain constant as does the PS3 at $299. But when you have all 4 items in your cart, the TV price drops substantially. I had it narrowed down to two sets, the KDL-52V5100 and the KDL-52Z5100. The V series has a really nice picture but a few scary reviews about sound cutting out. That set has a list price of $1999, on sale this week for $1499, and with the package deal it drops to $1071. Really incredible deal and still mostly positive reviews, but I just didn't want to risk having the same issues that a few users had. I ended up getting the Z series even though it was a bit more than I wanted to spend. It's rated higher across the board by experts and users alike, and in fact the picture is considered identical to the 52XBR9 which sells for a lot more. The Z has a list price of $2499, on sale for $1999 this week, and with the package deal, $1521. So with the PS3, Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 blu ray, and Uncharted 2 - Among Thieves game, the total came to $1910. The picture on this TV is just astounding, can't wait to watch football on it!!
