Got the 60ex500 and have owned for about 2 weeks now, wall mounted it (look online, got the mount for $35 great quality), used an employee discount the day they released this on sony's site and got it for $2069. Great picture, no flashlighting, deep blacks, have ps3, xbox 360, HD cable all hooked with a pioneer vsx-1019ah receiver. Definitely tweak your settings, turn off motion flow, etc... I am running backlight at 2 now, detail and sharpness are great, especially for a 60" LCD. My personal settings are that I have turned off all advanced features that would modify video, motion flow, cinemotion, corrector... all are turned off. After hours of running there is very minimal heat from top vents, I was really amazed considering its size I expected a lot more. I have 2-32" Vizios in my kids rooms and each of them generate 3-4 times more heat than this TV does. All and all an awesome TV for the price. I am Sony all the way as all my HDTVs have been Sony, both before this one had issues including the one I am upgrading from (SXRD 50A2000) both times they have taken care of the issue out of warranty, no cost to me, no arguments. Also I always seem to luck out an get some kind of crazy discount
that doesn't hurt at all either!
