The W700b is derivative of the 2014 W800b, which seems to be much better regarded than the W802a. Any thoughts from W802a owners, cautionary or praise-worthy?

What's the difference in price between the two models? I think $850 for this set is a fantastic deal. I paid like $1500 for mine. No QC or uniformity issues to speak of.

I have to move my 55w802a within my home and I'm wondering if moving it with the stand attached is OK or do I risk putting unnecessary stress on the panel? I'll be moving it myself, so I won't be able to provide any support to the stand while carrying it. Is it best to detach the panel from the stand and then move? I may be over thinking this, but I'll be carrying it for quite a bit of a distance and it will involve a set of stairs.

Do any of the Sony KDL55W802a owners here use ARC on this unit?

I was always a source-receiver-Display guy, but yesterday while doing some re-wiring I decided to try the ARC feature. No matter what I do I can not get the TV to pass 5.1 from an input source to the receiver! Is it not possible to direct wire to this TV and get the ARC to pass 5.1?

I have tried all settings I can think of but the display will only pass stereo over the ARC.....any suggestions?

Wake me when HD gets Here!
