I owned 40V4100 for nearly two weeks and was very happy with the picture quality. After a week or so, I started hearing static clicking sounds when the TV was off. At first I ignored it, but then it started clicking through out the day and night - was bit annoying.
I tried pluging it off the wall socket, and ofcourse there was no clicking sound, however every time I turned the TV on, the TV would display a message the system has lost clock information due to power outage.
So, finally I decided to return the unit, was reluctant at first but finally went to BB for return. Same day I noticed Sony introduced 42V4100 and I decided to go with it - BB was out of stock, so I ordered and its gonna come next Thursday.
Looking at all the posts somehow, I am not sure if I should be buying the v series again. So I went to CC (BB wont honor my 12% coupon on S series) and looked for another option, 40S4100 again CC said they cant honor my AAA coupon, so I didnt buy 40S4100.
To my shock, I saw 40V4100 on sale for 1349 (CC adverstized price for this week is 1499). Why would Sony allow CC to put the TV on sale for 150 bucks short? Is the TV model going to go out soon? Why wld Sony bring 42V4100 for just 100 bucks more?
I am little unsure as which model I should go with now. I have following options -
A. 40V4100 : $1319 + Tax (or get 8%off on $1349 if CC agress to honor my AAA coupon on Sale item)
B. 40S4100 : $1199 + Tax
C. 42V4100 : 1400 + Tax (order already placed, but I can cancel it)
