Hi,

I was looking at Hill & Stewart the other day and they have got the display model of KS-60R200A at about $3,300.  I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experience of this TV or a similar model.

Also since it being the display model it has had a lot of use, is anything going to decrease in performance besides the globe (which I bet will need replacing soon if I was to get it). Such as does the brightness decrease, or prome to dead/stuck pixels etc.

Any advice is welcome.

Great sets if you have the room at the back to place them.  Excellent angle of view, 1080p and because of the LCoS technology, very little chance of dead pixels (different technology).  As with all RP's the bulb will need replacing eventually (the picture will get slowly darker), Maybe you can negotiate a bulb as part of the deal. Not sure of the bulb life but I would imagine 2-3 years with average viewing.  Since Sony is getting out of the RP business, that's why they are cheap now.

If it were a Brand X company I might agree but Sony like most tier one brands, tends to keep parts around for a while. And anyway there are non OEM bulbs available should it come to that. Other parts are likely to be stock items.
