Super late to the party obviously, but I couldn't resist...XBR55HX950 demo model missing stand for $1300 with free ISF calibration and free 4 yr warranty. I fired it up in the store and nothing seemed wrong with the set. No dead pixels, lines, etc. The only thing was a small "blemish" on the glass itself. I hesitate to call it a scratch, maybe a scuff, but I couldn't see it unless I was two inches from the screen and not at all when powered up. I'm sure it will irritate me...just knowing it is there, but it seemed so minor considering the price. How did I do?
