Wow...I think I may pull the trigger on this. Though at this point no one can rule out this getting down to $200...

I know; the new open box one I scored on BF weekend from Warehouse Deals for $367.xx is not looking so hot now. But I did have a ton of Amazon credit to burn, so I'm not going to get too worked up.

Was thinking about picking one up for a computer monitor...I have a 55" 3D tv for my PS3/Blu-Ray/360...how is this? I'd probably sell Motorstorm

The question is what if Amazon matches it for a brand new display?

Thing is tanking pretty badly.

I love Sony, but sometimes I feel bad for them.
They come out with great products, but alot never sell well. Not without reason though

I still say if they included a remote (the PS3 remote) and a larger size. These would sell well. Give me a 32" option and I would most likely buy it for the right price.

I saw a ton of them at Bestbuy Store today.

What's killing it I think (at least for me) is that the display lacks a TV Tuner. I have space in my room for a TV, not a TV and a "Game Display"...I don't have my own cable box either, so that's out for now.

It's a bit superfluous, and I think people are thinking twice about the space/financial implications of its purchase.

Then I either return the sucker for a new one, or see if I can get a CSR to just give me a nice credit so neither party has to deal with the hassle of a return.

If this was 3" bigger I would bite. As it is, I can't see paying more than 200 for it. The idea is really nice, but they priced themselves out of the market by marking up the price too high and not delivering a big enough display.

Maybe a dumb question, but if I hook a 360 up to this will I be able to view 3D compatible games in 3D? Or is this just good for PS3 3D games?

Not to defend this screen but really, how many people are running a coax from the wall to a high end hd 3d display and not using a tuner box?

I know one kink is that is doesn't have a coaxial in so your tv options are limited to the 2 HDMI ports or 1 Component in

God damn. I've got $50 in Best Buy credit and could use my brother's credit card to get 10% back, I've been wanting a new TV, and my TV cabinet can't fit a 32", but I think my DirecTV box only has a composite cable.

Fuck

Grabbed one, thanks for the update! I'm going for a 55-60" next year hopefully and only using a shitty 32" sanyo right now, so while this is a tad smaller, the specs are so much better, and I plan to use this as a spare TV or maybe even a monitor when I do upgrade! Also, the fact we get a $25 GC and $5 in reward zone is awesome.

I just have a feeling these will be 200-250 in the very near future. I checked in-store inventory and the closest 8-10 stores all have this in stock. It hasn't exactly been a big seller.

If it isn't an HD box, it only does composite and S-Video.

With a PS Vita pre-order and Star Wars XBOX 360 pre-order my wallet is locked down. At $299 though it has me considering it.
