New Sony V300 Is In Store Now!

Recommended Posts

just came back from Sony Central Adelaide, they have 40" V300 on display. i was very impressed by the PQ, definitely the best 720P LCD display so far. and with RRP$1999, it can easily beat Samsung 40R81 to death. i was also glad to hear it doesn't have HD tuner, because the V2000's HD tuner was a disaster (it takes 3 secs to switch a channel). they also quoted me $1440 cash price for the 32" version, which is only about $60 off. will look around and see if other stores can offer a better deal.

The 40" V300 rrp is $1999 and the 40" V2000 rrp is $3399, what does the extra $1400 give you for a V2000 model apart from

an inbuilt HD tuner??

$2k for a Sony 40" 1366x768 LCD panel is an awesome price, opinions/thoughts???

don't forget V300 has 10bit panel and supports 1080P signal, while V2000 doesn't. BTW V2000 looks soooooo old now :)

seem to be missing something but the only difference b/w the 32 inch v300 and v2000 is the built in HD Tuna and the price $1499 vs $2399 RRP? How much for a decent HD setop box these days.

Thanks for your comments.

I'm wondering, do you have any comments about the performance of the 32" V300 against other 32" competitors such as the Samsung R8 series? 1499 rrp is very reasonable, especially for Sony and the decent specifications further add value for money.

didn't see 32" in store, however they do have them in stock. 32" has 8bit S-PVA panel, while 40" has 10bit. Samsung R8 is not on same level as V300, as they are using cheap CMO/AUO panles.

I'm in the market for a new 32inch LCD for my room. How does the new Sony V300 compare with the soon to be released Panasonic TX-32LXD700? I had my mind set on the Panasonic but seems like the sony one is more cheaper but doesn't have inbuilt HD tuner whereas the Panasonic does.

I've been told that the new V300 is Made in Malaysia, while V2000 is Made in Japan. Can someone confirm this? Thanks.

Sony will release D300 to compete with Pana D700. i've heard 120hz does help minimising motion blur. personally i wouldn't pay the extra $500 for 120hz as i'm very happy with the V300 PQ.

I picked up one in NZ a couple of weeks ago (returned my samsung r81 for it - lucky it was within the 28 day return period). The sony is a great set - handles HD and SD well (even divx!). Highly recommedned

i reckon is because of the difference between 8bit and 10bit panels. 10bit panel can show a lot more colors than a 8bit

The current V2000 series is coming down in price ... popped into Myer a few minutes ago on my morning tea break for a look see. The ticketed

price of the 46" V2000 (1366x768) is now $3499 and the 40" V2000 is now $2899. Thats the Myer ticketed price, I'm sure JB's, HN etc will be

dropping their ticketed prices as well. I asked the Myer sales guy about the price drop, he said the V2000 series is a run out, they're making

way for the new range coming out next month, will be cheaper as they'll be manufactured in China rather than Japan. Don't know if thats fact

or rumor, it's just what the Myer guy said to me.

V3000 40" + HD PVR for under $2600!? If so, I think I will be downsizing from 46".

(unless the 46" TV's have similarly huge price drops)

So MYER won't get V300 until next month? that's kinda late, i was hoping to get a better deal there.
