I also wonder if other owners of the 909 had the same issue with the tv went dead? Hey solid i think u should get another 909 ive been going to the 929 forums and there having alot of issues with banding and creasing issues with there 929 but some are happy with there 929 good luck with your decision and im also deciding if i should buy my extended warranty
I had about 7 weeks left in my 18 month warranty. I've had 5 TVs in 20 years, all sony but 1 and this is the the first to die on me. I should consider myself lucky.
I want another HX909, but I was told I would get the same model or equivalent, whatever that means. I hope its not a refurbished, I had a bad experience with getting refurbished to replace something under warranty. We'll see on Tuesday when it's delivered.
I thought about the 929 but I decided it may be better to wait for the 2012 models and if I don't like my replacement, upgrade with the 2012.
I really was happy with the HX909, I just wish Sony would upgrade the firmware with some of the features of the HX929.
P.S. I would get the warrenty. $180 for 5 years is not bad.
