Hope this helps some folks.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to stick up for the tv or Sony. Flash lighting between inputs is just the way sony decide to handle the back light during moments of no signal. On my set the tv looks a slightly uneven grey. During viewing it nonexistent.
Look at my pictures here
. The loading screen was the only way I could get a descent picture of clouding on my set.
Would I rather that my tv was perfect in every way, Yes.
Is there a tv made that i would be satisfied with, No.
Would I rather have a 820 or 929, sure.
Am I going to spend the extra money, No, not after having this set and getting the price I did through the replacement program.
The biggest issue I have with the tv is that its too small. Seriously, I wanted to upgrade in size from 55. I even made a full size template to get an idea what to expect. The problem is that the old sxrd was nearly two feet closer than the new wall mount. So a 60" tv is practically the same viewing size as the 55" sxrd, But there was no way I was going to wait for the 65's to come out.
I have not tried any of the below I just thought I would post it in case it helps someone.
From Sony Asia
The LCD screen is made with high-precision technology to achieve a high level of performance and picture quality. To achieve this level of performance, the backlight setting of the TV is set to maximize the screen brightness. However, uneven brightness may be observed when the TV is viewed in a dark environment without a video input source, or with a blank screen. This condition is normal and not a malfunction of the TV.
If you should find this affects your enjoyment, here are a few adjustments that can be made to minimize this condition.
