This is the TV's coolest feature by far.. Two people can play on the same TV WITH FULL screen at the same time.. I'm guessing it probably uses the same tech that 3D uses..
So two people can watch two completely different things on the same TV at the same time..

(that's a promo/demo)

If that doesn't make sense, basically you and a buddy could play COD against eachother with this one TV.

I doubt you could use the SimulView and 3D at the same time, but that's not that big of a deal.
(@wnyx585am already said that, but it was worth repeating :D - that's a pretty unique feature. A pretty impressive one too.)

I have this display, I paid $300 for it. I agree with the CNET review completely. That said, I'd buy another on at $300, and I'd definitely recomend it at $200. The picture display is extremely good. Quoting CNET:

In terms of presentation, this is a Sony TV with excellent processing of all sources, which makes it great for watching movies or cable TV. The TV is excellent at processing the natural frame rate of Blu-rays (24Hz), so HD movies look ultrasmooth. The screen itself is able to produce a high-quality picture, with excellent shadow detail and high contrast that make movies "pop."

This is a display for small rooms, and for gamers who are sitting pretty close to the screen. Everything in the CNET review is true, screen is a litle too glossy and reflective, auto off is too aggressive, cable location is in the wrong place, and you have to buy a special PS3 remote. But the picture is beautiful. It's 240Hz, so 3d is still at 120Hz. One correction, the 3D glasses can be had for $39.

@slytke: Never said it was good. Just maybe worth it if you don't have $500+ to throw around. Other 3D monitors using HDMI 1.4a get really pricey really fast. The closest I can find to this price is: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B004YCMEBI/?tag=dealswoot-20

edit: I see you extend the warranty up to 5-years for $90 (also increments in between). Which is like "renting" a 3d monitor for 5-years for $290.

I'm going to look into this a bit... I've been thinking about getting a TV, and $200 is about what a 24-inch costs anyway.

@fredwallace18: I just want to make everyone aware, just because it's cheap doesn't mean it's good. If they're getting marked down, that means Sony no longer wants to deal with them. And in my opinion, even if Sony fixed the issue of it dying after a month, I bet it will still die. If you have a year warranty on it, after that year you are S.O.L. if it dies. With its laundry list of problems, I don't think it's worth "renting" a TV for a year.

@slytke: Yeah, that looks pretty bad. But notice that at the time of review it had a "$500 price tag." 60%/$300 off makes it shortcomings look a lot more reasonable.

@slytke: And he doesn't even touch on the faulty issues...

I'm still hesitant, I looked at reviews everywhere and even on Sony's site the latest reviews say the TV died after a month. $200 is still too much of a risk for me, I'll take it when it drops to $100. Also what about the warranty, I can't find where they have the warranty information...and if they honor the warranty, are they going to charge to ship it to a repair center? If that's the case, I've dealt with those types of warranties and it's not worth the hassle.

I bought a Sharp TV a long time ago because it got rated well on colors and deep blacks but there was a "banding" issue listed that I ignored. Even though they allowed me to swap the TV, I had the same issue with the next and the next after that...even if it's a discounted P.O.S., you're still buying a P.O.S.

@zuiquan: One would think that Sony would have figured out the issue and addressed it by now, but I guess you never know. I have not researched to see if there have been any confirmations from Sony about fixing it, etc. I guess that's what the warranty is for, but, obviously, no one wants to fool with the hassle.

While this looks pretty cool, some of the reviews about it dying after a month make me a bit hesitant.

Sorely tempted. As far as I can tell, 3D capable TVs at 24" tend to run around $500.

@dummy1212: I'm pretty sure it is just like any other similar spec TV. The "Playstation" part of it is mostly branding. The only unique thing that this TV does is allow for simultaneous full screen views for two players in 3D on some Playstation games. That's pretty neat when you see it in action. Although, I believe a few other TV's may also be capable of that too.

What's the compatibility of these with non-PS3 items (standalone 3D Blu-ray players, PC HDMI Connections, Cable Boxes, etc)?
