Default Just came from The Sony Store ...

So i was looking for a new LCD TV, i went to the Sony Store to check out their Bravia's. I met the rep, we talked about TV's, he said the difference between Samsung and Sony HDTV's ...

So after we talked about the HDTV's, I asked him questions about the HD DVD vs. Blu-ray . He told me the normal specs (HD DVD is cheaper, Blu-ray has more capacity) which i knew but i didnt tell him i own a HD DVD player, so after he told me the specs and qualities of each format, i asked him which of the 2 formats is worth getting. I was suprised, he said both formats have their own advantages but he said he would chose HD DVD .

The guy had no intrest in Blu-ray. Its really weird, a guy that works at the SONY STORE recommands HD DVD, well it was a suprise, but he was a honest guy.

Don't dare to tell us the location of the store. The guy might get fired.

I guess this proves that everyone is allowed to have their own opinion and that Sony doesn't hypnotize its employees

News just in. Human being exhibits free will in Sony store. Philosophers and scientists debate issues regarding capacity for independent thought

I've worked for major telecoms companies for over ten years and have zero interest in their product. I would recommend my current employer's stuff but some of the ones I've worked for in the past I wouldn't touch. Maybe your Sony guy was like that too.

I couldn't agree more - something along the lines of "The One and only anecdotal thread" or a whole subforum "My local Experience". We get far more of these threads than we do of "I recently switched". Plus, some of it might be entertaining from time to time.
