So, I am supposedly going to receive the $925 credit towards a purchase at Sony.com, but at this point, I'll believe it when I see it.
I also received an e-mail from Sony confirming that the 52XBR9 is out of stock, and giving me the option for the 55EX500 at $550, or the 52VE5 at $250. So, the EX500 is new to the mix, but probably not one I'll consider. (Bravia 2, A LOT of unknowns, etc)
Of course this takes the initial concept of this thread and poll off track a little bit, but out of Sony's lineup on sony.com, where do I go now?
Off the bat, I'm thinking about the 52W5100 for a net price of $675, but I'm also debating whether or not the 52XBR9 would be a better bet for an additional $500. Obviously my preference would be somewhere in between with the Z5100, but they're sold out.
Your input has really been helpful thus far, so I'd appreciate more!
