I certainly agree with that!

I say this even though I was about $3,300 off the $8,500 MSRP, when I bought it. It was still waaay more than the tier or two below it. IMO, the premium LEDs are or soon will be the perfect balance between flagship 4K and cost.

My son's XBR52HX909 (5/2010) has a great picture, but it has no bulk to it. The XBR8 is a tank by comparison. I just can't get over how some tiny problem in the XBR8 panel is causing every 5th line to be dark on the left. Everything in the set is in perfect working order, except that one small part that we can't replace.

Not for the foreseeable future. It will be a tough sell for my wife, since she doesn't even notice the "problem". We sit about 16' from the TV, making the "problem" less noticeable. Also, we have no place to store it in our small retirement home that doesn't include a basement.

Every 6th line dark to left normal to right

There is new hope. Extreme_Boky's post in the following thread explains how to clean the contacts on the ribbon cables from the TCON board to the panel:
Sony KDL-46XBR4 Panel Problem
I'll try that next.

Here's a picture of the cables to refresh your memory:
