I didn't mean to mix you up with some of the other posters, and if I did, please excuse me for it.
I have no doubt Sony could have done better, but good luck finding a KDL-55W900A for $1,999.99 these days.
What could have or should have isn't what "I can have" and maybe my question might be: Would it have been worth another 50% for what I don't have?
As much as I wanted last year's Sony, the price held me back.
I started with a KDL-48W600B for $600 this year and thankfully the two I got were defective and a 3rd went back ordered so I "had to"
change to this 55-W950B, which it turned out went back ordered too at the time, but I could hold onto the last 600B to watch while waiting.
Are there things about it I wish were better?
Sure, but there are more things I like than not and $1349.99 made it even more attractive.
