Hey, now I have a certified Sony "normal" set.
That's what pisses me off the most, the technology is NOT new, the problem was NOT in the previous Sony LCD models.
EVERY single source to cite this problem classified it as a "DEFECT"
aka not normal, not acceaptable, should not be in the final product.
Except of course Sony which just flat out lies & tells you it's normal.
You can buy a TV with a screen that is cracked in half & Sony can still tell you it's normal for the technology, but the fact of the matter it isn't normal & sony is 100% at fault.

The new Mitsubishi 1080p LCD sets, no problems reported at all. zero reported, might want to check them out as I am.

Take your pick, there's something wrong with all of them. Good luck picking the one that won't bother you the most. There's always someone who will have a better one, and spend less money than you. Try to be happy people. Just something to think about.
Silk Scren Effect is INHERENT with the technology, like reflections off glass plasma panels or black levels looking lighter on LCD's.
It's a problem, BUT not a manufacturing DEFECT which a lot of those problems are & should be corrected by the manufacturer before being sold period.
