Here's my Journey now completed:
March 12 called Sony excepted the HX701.
March 13 sent serial label (Priority M with DC)
March 17 Sony recieved DC per USPS
March 18 recieved Email confirmation.
March 18-19 CC Charge pending
March 23 TV shipped Email (was actually shipped March 20)
March 25 Recieved TV
It took 15 minutes to set up. The Blacks are BLACK and the colors are a little over saturated. It needs some calibration work and that is a good challenge. I will have a little more glare with this TV due to my windows. (I love the Windows) My old SXRD50 was OK, but this is more of a defned picture. It has another dynamic look about it. Let the tweaking begin.
I'm very happy and the price was right. Thanks to every one here for the advice and suggestions.
