I did keep the 820 stand if I feel like switching. Got a extra from Sony. And the remote for the 850 is cheaper, but has a button for the Sony Entertainment Network. On the 820 remote there is no way of getting to that app. Buts it lights up and control the sat and all other components.
Dude, it was never about the LOGO illumination.
It's just that this is a LUXURY model, and they are taking out things from it!
You say you dont mind them taking out sensors and cameras, nor the logo, but you were paying for it! They are cashing out on you. You'd have more for less with the 820. Even the remote control is horrible. It doesn't even belongs to a HX/XBR class. It's worst even than the BD control remote. People even say things about the corning gorilla glass not being as resistent as before.
Seriously? Thank God I have my 820.
I am just making a point that they are cutting costs... ON US!!!
Just wonder what 2013 line will be like with a 40% cut of models...
What will be left???
And seriously, don't talk back at me mentioning Samsung. In fact, Samsung and others did the same thing with the logo BECAUSE of Sony, and now Sony turns its back on this thing.
About the sensors; so what makes it better than the EX model? The Panel? The processors? The glass in front of it?
Soon there will be no extra features.
I am sorry but the sensors were important and I actually use them. Whenever I am out of the room the tv shuts down by itself. I also think it adjust the light of the screen depending on my room lighting and even the sound floats around WITH ME when I walk around the room, so don't tell me they are not important...
