as far as selling well...nothing "high-end" is selling that well in this economy, certainly not 3d. based on what i have seen, sales forecasts/expectations for 3d is "high"...(unbelievably so)
the lx is only in larger market areas which would also explain low sales. yesterday, i was in atlanta on business; sonystyle only has the 52lx on display. bb (magnolia) has the 60lx well displayed but no site inventory...have to pickup at warehouse. they offered me (without asking) the 60lx at "list" with 3d starter kit and a bdp-s770 thrown in free.
I was surprised to see this thread barely 3 pages long for a set that came out in June but this is an "Early Adopter" set, it has all the newest bells & whistles & you are paying the price for them.
After finding out this set was one of the sets offered by Sony I went out to see it in person.
I went to 5 places in Tulsa, Ok, Audio Advice, Mathis Brothers & Ultimate electronics said they could get them but had no stock & no display, Video Revolution & Best Buy Magnolia has them in stock & on display.
The price is the same at all 5 stores.
They also had deals that included the 3D starter kit & the PS3 Move bundle.
Personally if it wasn't for Sony giving this to me as a replacement for my 70" XBR2 I would not be looking at 3D TV's at this time.
It's like when I first got into HDTV's, the price is high & there is very little content.
This set will tide me over till the LED 3D projectors are more mature.
