Before this all went down, I would have agreed with you that youtube videos are youtube videos. I thought youtube was basically a bunch of jackass wanna-bes looking for their 5 minutes of fame. Youtube can be a useful tool to express opinion outside bought-and-sold corporate media (We'll see how long that lasts). In speaking with a lot of professionals (Repair man, cable installers, etc) the over all quality drop from cathode-ray tube to the flat panel is quite prolific. Social media is giving those of us who have bought these lemons a chance to prevent others from getting ripped off. At this point, I don't believe that Sony will ever step up, but at least I can sow the seeds of doubt and maybe keep someone else from getting taken. Thanks for writing back.
