Ok, here's my take on this, like it or not, here I go,
A lot of you guys have clouds on the mind. It has scarred some of you. Making everyone who comes in see clouds no matter how small. You tell people how to take the picture to show how the clouds are just all over the screen with f-stop, exposure rates, shutter speed, whatever. I think I've seen 2 pictures of actual
cloudiness with shows on from an XBR. 99% of them are of blank screens with various camera settings to show the worse picture.
Some of you may truly have messed up sets, and I am not saying you all have OCD. I am saying that 99% of you have some kind of perfection issue that is not completely healthy and will only drive you crazy.
Now go ahead and flame me and say how I work for Sony and don't know what I'm talking about. I couldn't be a person who owns one of these beautiful sets, ran across this thread a while back from the XBR thread, and think most of you are incredibly picky people who need to realize this and move on, or return, exchange.
I'm not quite sure why anyone would buy a set today without a 30 day guarantee that almost all stores have, even online. Or, buy with a credit card and be able to dispute through your bank. You know credit card companies can do wonders.
And, if you did have 30 days to check out your TV, why wouldn't you check every aspect of said TV within that 30 day period, and/or notice this blaring issue that is so prevalent, that it's cloud central?
I'll tell you what I think, I think your sets were fine for you, and you enjoyed the heck out of them. You then noticed on black inputs/dark scenes, a little, very subtle, weird light leaking, mura, whatever it is. You went, hey, what exactly is that? Did a search, found this thread, and joined the club. Again, not all of you, but most.
OMG, it's not perfect, destroy it, be miffed, blame Sony, blame the store, they all lie, I'm screwed, report to everyone, Sony will not get my business, etc.
I know I'm grinding metal here to the posters who are here. But, to the lurkers who are just reading and not in this club, this set is awesome, go get one (with a 30 day return, no restocking fee, there are plenty), pay with a credit card if possible, get from a reputable store (BBB.org)and check this bad boy out, it's arguably the best 1080 LCD presently.
