I see the new non-speaker version is available for preorder on Sony's website now for $500 less than the w/speaker version.

I just ordered the XBR-65X850A and will be delivered on Oct 7th. Can't wait. It'll be replacing my VT60 which has burn in from playing Xbox.

I would love to hear your first impressions, black levels, uniformity, and anything else you see!

I would love to hear if there is input lag with gaming. Thanks.

I brought my Xbox to my local BB and tried Battlefield on the 900 model and with only a few minutes of testing was able to get it to an acceptable level. The person that was manning the remote and settings didn't turn everything off as he seemed confused with most of the menus. I think I'll be able to get it better once I have it home.

There are more differences than just the speakers: the panel has been changed to "deep black" from the "opticontrast", and the 3D has been change to "active" from being "passive"

Where did you get your Sony, have both units been installed, and how do they look?

How do the picture qualities compare?

I received my new W850a yesterday Oct 14th. This is not the XBR set but does have a very impressive picture, including great color and nice blacks. I did include some screen shots.

See post #72 and #73 on this page.
