First post, hi everyone, hope you're all doing good!
I'm currently in Ｓｈａｎｇｈａｉ ａｎｄ ｔｈｅｒｅ ｔｈｅｙ ｈａｖｅ ｔｈｅ Ｗ９５０ａ ｗｈｉｃｈ ｉｓ ｂａｓｉｃａｌｌｙ ｔｈｅ Ｗ９００ａ ｂｕｔ ｔｈｉｎｎｅｒ ａｎｄ ｈａｓ ｔｈｅ ｍｏｎｏｌｉｔｈｉｃ ｇｏｒｉｌｌａ ｇｌａｓｓ ｔｙｐｅ ｓｃｒｅｅｎ ｄｅｓｉｇｎ．I'vｅ ｓｅａｒched everywhere but can't find any reference to it being gorilla glass so i'm guessing it's not.
however, it's beautiful and the thinness makes it look more beautiful than the w900 in my opinion. So i plumped for the W950 and the time i spent with it, it's amazing.
having checked the screens of the 2 tv's in the sony store, i didn't see a difference in quality. I guess the difference in price is just the aesthetics of the set design as opposed to the innards.
however my first set developed a dead pixel after a week. In china they have a 7 day no quibble money back guarantee or no quibble change for a new one within 15 days.
The 2nd tv had this strange lighting phenomenon in the top right left and middle, where there seemed to be some kind of light reflection, as if the leds were leaking streaks of light. The 4 corners were quite dark too. They changed for a third which had a chip in the glass (hence it don't think it's the tough gorilla glass), and there were light streaks in top left, top middle and top right and also in the same places at the bottom. (I checked various W900s and it doesn't have this strange light leak) Found another dead pixel too. They delivered a 4th yesterday, would you believe it, there was industrial glue on the screen and on the frame which wouldn't come off. The guy apologised and said they will bring me another tomorrow.
Fingers crossed that number 5 will be a gem.
I'm really tired of dealing with Sony customer service who, to be honest have been really patient with me, but my first set was brilliant until the red pixel turned up. The picture quality was awesome and the colour was very rich. I was watching the Blu-ray of I am Legend, just stunning. I do love the TV hence i still haven't given up yet on getting a good set.
Has anyone else had any bad luck yet with the new Sony sets?
