Wow!  Nice systems man, any chance of some pictures? Thanks Gel, I will try sometime in the near future, have just acquired an Xperia Z, good excuse to try out the camera. :)

 

Cool, nice one.  I just had a demo of your TV, the VT50 65 inch - very nice!   Smile

I've taken a couple of pictures Gel but I have no idea how to post them in a reply or put them on my signature, there are no attachment icons or insert image etc, I'm obviously missing something, apologies....any pointers?

It's the little green tree next to the A in the toolbar. you need to host the pictures online and link to them using that.

Hi

 

Just go to Flickr.com:

Then upload them there, then copy and properties, copy and paste, then come back here and press on the tree thing like the man said and copy and paste it in.

RE: Good quality screen - no bells and whistles

Ok I seem to have two links to the same pictures, the pictures themselves aren't great and I've only had the Xperia Z for two days. The camera doesn't seem that great in low light, but I can fiddle with that. When I do I'll take some better ones. Thanks Gel and The_Lhc for your help, never hosted pictures before or linked anything much so thanks for not patronising me because I didn't have a clue to be honest! :cheers:

It can get a bit confusing, so if you get stuck just let us know.  You have to click on the picture sizes too in Flickr, and select like the 520 one, or else it can come out blurred.

RE: Good quality screen - no bells and whistles

Thanks mate. So are you thinking of buying the VT? 0r did you just want to see if it was any good? I was thinking about a demo of the ZT60, just to see if it is as good as some are saying, but I'm used to the 65 now and I don't know if I would want to downsize...My VT makes my 500a look tiny :grin:

No, I went to demo the new ones but they are getting them in about a weeks time, I am getting a call when they are in.   Really liked the VT50 though and it didn't look that big - which surprised me.   Looking forward to see the new ones now.

+1000 You also get the same smart features (you tube etc) on your TV and your bluray player. It's real annoying that we have to pay for these features several times over, when many of us don't even want them to start with.

 

Don't buy it then!   Smile


Yes, but as the other posters have been suggesting, the best *quality* players and screens come with smart features as standard.
I'd rather the money was either taken off the price of the product, or went into further increasing the quality.
It's fine if you like the features, but it'll be nice to have alternatives for the many of us who do not.
Panasonics latest plasma is a prime example. ..if there was a discounted version with the same sceen and no smart features (like the screen pen) selling at a lower price, I'm sure many of us would prefer it.

RE: It seems these days

Ironic as it may sound, these extra features actually help drive down cost of TVs due to increased sales & subsequently less production costs.
