I understand your concern, I have them too, but this company has a good service reputation, with me at least.
Several years ago, a Kabletown service guy mashed the HDMI input connector on my month old XBR5. I scheduled a Sony service call, set came apart quickly and new board was put in. This is essentially the same procedure, and I'll be sitting there watching the events unfold. BTW, I insisted Comcast was going to pay for this repair, and the Sony guy did it as "warranty" so Kabletown clown got off the hook easy.
As for content, you're 100% on the mark. The movies sorta blow for the most part other than hopefully looking "outstanding." Not only do I want to see it knock my socks off in my own home, but the offer of $200 reduced price, and the $100 gift card made it a lot more palatable. Plus, it's going to need the HDMI board sooner or later, so if Sony is offering, I figured I'd bite.
