Sadly my ELITE PRO-60X5D has a defect (see images) and the unit is outside of the manufacturer warranty by 4 months. I have an extended warranty through Squaretrade, and they have advised the defect "would be too expensive to repair." The product warranty is for $3999.99 which was the price limit. I paid $4,100.00 at CP a great deal at the time. I spoke to CP for advice and they were helpful in advising what to expect when dealing with a warranty company.
From what I can tell based on reading posts in this thread since yesterday afternoon (still only at page 51), the XBR65-X900B is a great set. At least up to page 51 (May 2014) of this string. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, to this point it's been interesting and pretty helpful.
I will contnue to read the string to bring myself up to date on forum user experiences and opinions.
I visited Magnolia yesterday and I thought the set looked very nice even compared the x950B. They advised the set can be upgraded to changing 4K standards as well.
Since the set is currently priced within my warranty llimit it could be a smooth transition that I'd be willing to live with.
In the meantime I would welcome comments related to:
- x900B Pro's
- x900B Con's
- x900B Hidden caveats
- Direct experiences with Squaretrade
Thanks for reading and please comment if you can!
