That is $2200 from their website.

Think it is their version of the 850B, same tv.

parents bought this set on saturday...has major issue of a dark circular sreen uniformity issue. If the screen is a solid color green...or blue or especially white...the screen has really dark areas in a circular pattern. Went back to costco and floor model has same issue.its getting returned.did not notice when they bought it. My parents love the tv and are hoping to see if maybe the 850 does not have this issue...very disappointing...love sony..but quality control on some sets seems to be dipping off

this is a problem thats been seen in a lot of Sonys new panels. I had the 850A which this 830/850B model replaces and it had the same issue (after 2 replacements from Amazon I gave up). I always thought highly of Sony but I am now looking more toward Samsung TVs this year.

Audio: Yamaha A-S1000 Stereo Amplifier // Kef LS50 Speakers // Energy EW8 Subwoofer

Headphones: Bose AE2W // Klipsch Image x10

Got this TV today for $1,999, don't see the issues your talking about at all. Great picture out of the box. Will tinker with settings tomorrow.
