They were sold dirt cheap last month and now all but gone ... was there a worldwide problem? Or the kiwi uptake had been poor due to its sheer size (if it is what a shame)!

Sony announced last year they were ending production of all real projection TV's. The cheap prices over the past month or so have just been clearance stock.

ah i see ... NZ got the end of line stock as "new models" that just did not sell so had to be "garage sale"d ... coz it was only around for 6 months you see and even in its first few months was heavily discounted then after 6 months sold for peanuts. i wished i had bought the 70" one! they were selling those 60" ones for $4g! but alas - our house cannot take another container sized gadget :(

It's a shame that RP is going away with only now Mitsubishi(?) in the US till selling them. In terms of bang for buck they are the best. Sony did release a slimmer line of the SXRD sets in the US but they didn't make it here (presumably because the existing line didn't sell as well as Sony had hoped?).

I have a JVC RP (DILA) and really envied the newer ones in the US which were only about 4-5" deep and could be wall mounted - best bang for buck for 1080p sets.  But JVC are also getting out the RP market so you only have a choice between Plasma or LCD.

*sigh i guess consumers were given 2 options:

expensive technology but compact VS cheaper technology takes up more space but awesome pictures

and collectively we chose the former and manufacturers had to give in. what a shame!!! sobs
