Definitely a No-Brainer!

BUYDIG Earned My Trust
from NW Illinois
I did a lot of research and found this set the best for the money even though it was a little high for me. The TV was up and running within a few hours of delivery. The picture blew me away! I left the settings as they were from SONY. I saw no "creases" under any of the wide range of pictures which was a relief. Overall I was 100% satisfied with what I determined was the best picture quality on the market. I was concerned about the shipment but BUUDIG said it had taken all precautions to include double wrapped boxes and movementaccelarator/sensor. It arrived without anything but the single store box but was in good shape. The truck driver who said he deliverd hundreds of TVs said that he had never heard of BUYDIGS precautions such as the sensor. I concluded that it was a sales gimmick. One other question was BUYDIGS being a Sony Rep. While registering my TV with Sony I looked thru the hundreds of official reps but never did find BUYDIG.Summary, I had excellent service support over the phone and better yet, no issues, which convinced me that BUYDIG would be my go site for electronics for their low prices and quality service.
The best XBR set I've ever owned.
from Brooklyn, NY
I use this HDTV for displaying all types of media.I use a wired ethernet connection using a very fast broadband, but I assume that the built in WiFi connection would be good also. I found that loading web pages is on the slow side though. This TV has the very best picture I've ever seen, and this is comparing it to the best plasma or LCD sets!!
Sony is pricey but very reliable
from Dearborn, Michigan
Array backlighting is awsome.Product delivery went exactly as described / expected.Would purchase from Buydig again.
