I am sorry, but after 7 panels you really just need to stop. :eek: You are either not adjusting your settings or dimming well, or your standards are way too high. After the 3rd, you should have...

The costco one is a good option at $90, and it can be bought up to 60 days after your purchase date. Sony can be bought for up to 1 yr. I inadvertently (maybe subconsciously on purpose) missed the...

For anyone that is still deciding on an extended warranty, the sony warranty is currently on sale for 10% off. I haven't been watching them too closely, but I don't think they go on sale often.

This shootout will have almost no benefit to the consumer, except the handful of rich guys looking for a supersized screen. Not what you would expect from a place called "Value Electronics."

Not sure about the specifics for the drill, but you should assume any holes or permanent changes you make to the walls will need to be approved or face a repair bill later. And any camera you place...

I'm guessing he means 900B vs 950B, in which case I would say 950B is better, most notably full array LD, but probably not worth the price difference unless you don't care about money.

Apparently Sony disagrees since they even went to the trouble of putting a "football" mode button on the remote for 2014 models.

Same with me. Not just color, but whenever there is something I see I don't like, I fire up the xbr8 I have right next to it still and then realize it's not the set's fault.

So they don't start any return period over on the replacement set or did they just get tired of you returning so many? If that is the case, people should just return and rebuy a new set each time...

I can see it, maybe your antivirus or something blocks photobucket?

But unless that pic is supposed to be a joke, I doubt any 900B would show banding like that. That is more like a larger defect...
