Normal for this set. Either deal with it or take it back.

It comes with a 90 day warranty but wanted to see if anyone had dealt with them directly (as well as their extended warranty service) and how helpful they were if an issue did arise. Really wanting to justify getting a 4k but I just don't know if the 1K price bump is worth it with the current lack of content. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Buy something reasonable now like this W850a set at low price. The rather high priced 4K sets may improve possibility with a larger screen including lower pricing. Their is not that much 4k programming from what I read. I do remember that Netflix was going to offer a similar 4K service, but I have no idea how many movies would that involve. That may start out very slow and increase over time.

Refurbished sony 65 inch 3D TV - 65W850a for only $1169.99 with my EPP it is $1,116.17

http://store.sony.com/refurbished-65...ecently_viewed

POOP -I just purchased a new one from frys for $1599. Was $1710.93 after taxes. Wonder if I should return this and re buy it here? What's the deal with refurbished TVs? Wonder if frys would price match it? Thats almost a $600 savings... but im really happy with my TV and would hate to get a crappier screen as mine seems great. Guess i should go to frys and see if they can do anything for me? But i have a feeling that they will not since this one is a refurbished vs a new tv which i got from frys...

since this one is a refurbished
Likely nothing is done to the TV. I think most of these are customer return units but of course could have some repair done.

You could always ask Fry's for the pricematch, but they may say this is refurbished which is clearly not the same as new! Also, the deal is gone now, so the point is moot. Maybe that's a good thing!

If you really like the one you have, don't putz with it! You'll start the endless cycle of comparing and regret

8 months after

My Sony 65w850a started giving problems after owning it for 8 months earlier this week. The left part of the screen from the middle to the edge is discolored or darkened. Sony will replace it with a refurb replacement. I don't consider this to be a minor problem and I find it random to start having problems after afew months. If you haven't, get an extended warranty.

It looks like Amazon is offering 11 new W850a sets for $1898 with free shipping and no tax. These are sold though ABT Electronics. That's $800 less than I paid for my set 9 months ago.

Just bought a PS4. "The last of us remastered" looks freaking sweet on this TV ! PS4 is bit loud though when gaming so I am moving it to other room and buying 10m active(amplified) HDMI cable to transmit the signal to TV. PS4 controller seems to have good range to do this.
