I Have a Sony XBR 46LX900 240 Hz, that failed and will be replaced under an extended service warranty. The warranty company is recommending the KDL 47W802a, 120 Hz. I feel that this is a downgrade from the XBR line. Do you guys think that this is a fair replacement or they are trying to rip me off. Should I demand a higher model.

The W900A would be the most equivalent model to your LX900 (240Hz + Active 3D), but depending on your locale it may not be available in a 46" size. For example, it's only produced in a 55" for the US.

Yes, it is only available in 55" and 65" in Canada, no 46". What should I do. Can they downgrade the quality to match the size. Or they should upgrade the size to match the quality. Right now the best 46" that Sony makes is the W802 but I feel it is not a fair trade and it is not comparable to the XBR LX900.

It's definitely not a fair trade, I wouldn't take a W802. Does it have to be a Sony? A samsung F7100 would be comparable. If you only want a Sony, you may be in for an uphill battle trying to get a 10" bigger TV. Maybe they can cash you out or cut you a check for the original value of your LX900.
