    Whats the lighting like in the viewing room?..

    The projection will appear more washed out under bright light enviroment then the LCD...You need to decide which is more important to you...
    size vs clarity?..

    My Brother has the Sony in a High Light Enviroment picture looks great...I am going to his place this weekend...will take some pictures to show you...

    To pick a TV there are a few things to consider.

    1) Room environment (which TV type will work best)

    a. Lighting conditions while watching TV

    b. Distance from the primary viewing position (Screen size)

    c. The position of the primary viewing position to the center of the screen

    d. Where will the tv be placed (wall, stand, entertainment center, ect...)


    2) Source material

    a. What will you be watching (Analog-TV, DVD, HDTV, Video Games, ect...)

    b. What is your source (OTA antenna, Cable, or Satellite)


    3) Budget

    a. What features are important to you? (what do you like about your current system?)

    b. Do you have or want a sound system (Stereo or Surround Sound?)

    c. Better cables equal better performance (Do you demand the absolute be for your money)

    ----------------------------------------

    Both TVs are nice sets but for the money I would go with Sony's KDS-60A2000 instead of the KDS-R60XBR2. Its the same tv without the fancy silver border for about half the price. Blu-Ray will look good on both sets although the larger the screen the more you will benefit from the Blu-Ray movies 1080p resolution.

    I really like the Sony XBR2.......can't afford it though. The XBR2 is Sony's top of the line rear-projection TV. How far away will you be sitting from the TV ?

    I have an A2000 Sony 55 inch, just the right size for my Family Room. Anything bigger would be too much.

    12 to 13 feet thats how far i will be sitting but what about views from the side i hear that rear-projection is very hard to see from the side does the A2000 Sony 60inch has this problem?

    It depends on how far on the side you are and at what relation to the middle of the screen. If you are sitting down and your eyes are about center then moving left or right from center about 45 degrees will no be a problem. But sitting below or standing above the center of the screen is when you will have problems.

    I have no problems viewing it at an angle. Sometimes I'll be watching something, then go to the kitchen & still can see everything clear.

    You want to go into a store & see the TV's your self. With your own eyes.
