I own a SONY KDL46XBR5. The screen needs replacing but the part is no longer available. Luckily I did buy the extended warranty. PC Richards is offering me the SONY KDL46EX710 as a replacement.

Is this a reasonable replacement? Now that I need a new TV I started doing some research and there are features on the KDL46NX800 that I like.

Of course, my BR5 is 3 years old so there have been advances since then. But, I spent over 3K for this TV and don't want to settle for less than I have to.

Please know, I am not a gamer. 3D does not mean much to me in higher versions of the TV, ie the HX series.

I would appreciate any advice you can provide. In advance, thanks for your help.

If your not in to 3D I'd say the Sony KDL=46NX800 is the way to go...

If your looking for equal price paid then go for the 55nx810 or the 46HX909. Both have 3D, but they are going for $3000, which is equal to what you paid for your original.

Hi, I'm in the same boat as you. I have a SONY KDL46XBR4 and the screen started getting distorted on the right side and luckily I also had purchased the extended warranty through PC Richard. I have them coming to look at it next week and I was wondering how did you make out with your exchange, did you get the one you wanted? If they offer me an exchange for a new one I'm looking at the Sony KDL-52NX800 since its $1899 and I paid $2299 for my XBR4 back in 2007 so I'm hoping that they will go for that. I think that is a fair exchange since the XBR's were high models at the time and the new NX's are comparable. Please let me know how it worked out for you.....Thanks!
