Hi JC7727, when you say "all in." does that mean they didn't insist on "mandatory insurance"? How is yours being shipped, and what does "all in." mean exactly?

No, it's still $1599 until March 1. They just took the page offline because they were out of stock. You can order at the lower price and they'll ship in a couple of weeks.

Thought my order was complete at Abes of Main but they called and pushed the bougus insurance on me for 150 dollars more. It brought the price up to 1760. I canceled the order, total fraud of a company.

When you are looking at this TV on Amazon, make sure to select Amazon.com as the seller. Then it is $1,718.38 (right now) and no tax.

Just contacted J&R through the phone, they mentioned that KDL-55W900A was discontinued and they don't accept any order anymore for this model.

Wow, that's not a good sign. I noticed it is still available at the Sony Store online for $1,999.

I purchased this TV from Amazon back in Feb and they just sent me an email saying they are giving 2% back to any TV's purchased that are over $999...you can't see any sort of credit until you check out with your next amazon order. http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=5799586011

$1,426 on clearance @ Best Buy. I got another $200 off for buying the display model (Oct. 2013 build date) which is all they had left...$1,226 + tax. Nice deal for this quality set.

Black levels are terrible :(

 

I had the TV for a few days. Coming from an LN52A650 it blew my mind in most areas, but the blacks just bothered me too much considering the price. I did love the color. The set actually had a slightly wider color gamut than most. Some didnt like it because it resulted in some oversaturation, but I loved it and I cant find another TV out there right now with as much color.

 

I feel like it would be worth it for a much cheaper price, but not for what they are currently charging. I took it back.

 

But now I have a new problem. Going back to the LN52A650, now everything just looks muddy and sad in comparison. I want a modern TV more than ever now.  The 950b had such depth compared to my old Samsung, I felt like I could reach out and grab a character in my video game. Now on my old set everything just looks flat.

I've had trouble tracking it down. Nobody nearby has it and Amazon only has used. I'd rather not buy online unless its with Amazon since it's so easy with them and I can trust them.

Wow, you've drank too much of the marketing kool-aid. It can hit >100% of Rec.709, not the old NTSC color space from the 1950's. Almost all most modern TVs cover 100% of Rec.709. If you calibrate it for Rec.709 it'll look like every other TV that can hit Rec.709 with no visible improvement.

I was able to pick up open box from BB last night for $1273.99.  I went over every inch; no scratches or dents anywhere.  Only thing I did not receive was the box and the packing material keeping it sturdy in the box.  I received both remotes, the stand, the two straps, the manual and the glasses.  BTW, build date was Jan 2014.

Sweet. I got mine too last week for around the same price and in a similar status (included everything except the box). Mine's a bit older though, I think it was a June or July model. Some finger smudges here and there but after wiping the screen clean, the thing looks brand new again.
