I think I have had enough with This Sony TV, I am not bad mouthing This TV which I do really enjoy but here is why,, 2007 I purchase the 52xbr4, the screen was plagued with clouding, had purchased the extended warranty, and was given this 60inch set in July 2010. 2 days after receiving this new tv, large amount of clouding was visible.then This TV set would no longer turn on, that was fixed, then about 3 months later I start getting parts of the screen showing blocks of green pixelization, tech tried changing a ribbon, but that did not work, so I waited 3 Weeks for a panel replacement, I freaked out after the tech left there was so much flashlighting and clouding, it is the worst panel I have ever seen. This evening I am watching NBC on OTA antenna @1080i, I Changed the Channel to CBS, the TV froze with no pic, I could not turn off the TV using the remote nor the panel buttons, i could not change channels, it lasted about 33-47 seconds,,, then the TV shuts off and turns on again, a self reboot, and This happened 3 times tonight, and then I wanted to smack This TV, I don't know what happened when it froze but now my video quality looks degraded, I tried my Blu-Ray, satellite, and different inputs something went wrong internally and this is it for me with Sony, I have not been lucky, I wish i was, butI will be excercising the extended warranty I bought again for this tv. From reading the sharp forums I think will be going for the 70 inch 732 model. This was my experience and a thank you to serial mike I have been using his settings. Since day one. i am feed up, I just want a functional TV. I'm going for the 70 incher and the way I feel now I don't give a hoot what the wife is going to say, that's it ,wish me luck. Thanks.
the way I see it I might as well go bigger,,, cause I ain't going home (just an expression) besides I got room, but 80inch would be over kill
