Have you seen this model yet anywhere? What are your thoughts on it?
No, I sadly haven't seen it in person as it still isn't available where I live.
Though I certainly won't buy it I will try to evaluate it's performance and that of it's successors. The opinions of (former) XBR8/X4500 owners are especially interesting to me as I want to see if it corrects the few faults of the older models.
If I were in your place I'd try to disable any automatic behaviour first to get a stable environment. That's the way I began experimenting with my X4500 - and it took about two weeks until I was familiar with the video options and their interdependencies. I expect the new set to be even more challenging because of the new Motionflow mode and other options.
