dickytim: Please refrain from making BS references to environmental issues when you don't actually give a toss, if you did you'd "take one for the team" and keep this TV for the sake of the environment.
Dear dickytim; please do not presume or speculate that my values are anywhere near your values, they clearly are not.
This thread is getting rediculous, no-one agrees with you so take it to the small claims tribunal or mediation, stop bleeting on the internet and do it properly.
Would Sony prefer to have this discussion out of the public eye? Why would that be? Sony have had a very fair chance to resolve matters.
When are Sony going to correct the incorrect specifications on the URL's http://www.sony.co.nz/products/product/blu-ray-and-dvd/blu-ray-player/bdps350.jsp and http://www.sony.co.nz/products/product/blu-ray-and-dvd/blu-ray-player/bdps550.jsp?
From a work mate who worked for Sony marketing they will usually give you a TV to shut you up and move you along, deal with it properly and you might get lucky, no-one here is going to give you your free TV
Come on Dickytim, which one are you saying here? Do they or do they not give away TV's to silence people?
How is it at Sony?
