Guys i need your opinion here, i respect you guys here: (btw: Thanks JohnGZ28 for your advise)
My overall question is this, if you were to have bought the XBR960 at Best Buy in November(and say you brainlapsed and were not thinking like me that night, to make sure it was the 'N' model) and they shipped you one that has a build date of May 05' and was the original XBR960(not the N model), and the sales rep. stated this would come from the main warehouse of some 50+ 960's, would you return the tv? (keep in mind i was assured of a brand new tv from this stock, because i had to wait 9 day for it's delivery..of which is only 10 miles away)
Also keep in mind..in this area(Syracuse, NY), that Best Buy is selling the tv for retail price-->$1899 and C. City had it for $1799, so there was not much room from haggling/price matching, and you got the price dropped to $1599, $300 off B.Buy's retail price.(This is what i payed)
What would you do?
1)Return the unit for a full refund(i have until the 24th to do so), and find a area here or order a newer model of this tv?
2)Keep the unit, calibrate it by a professional,..and if all is well, be happy that is works fine and while you could have gotten it for a better deal, you did knock off $300 offf the pricetag.
Thanks for your thoughts here, i'm sorry to bother everyone, as i love this HDTV, it's just i hate to think i got taken here for a fool.
BTW: Is the glare filter the only difference between the original 960 and the 960N models?. Because, even the phone reps at Sony don't seem to know of any difference.
Oh one last thing: For the component inputs 5 and 6, there is like sorta static like look..black screen that looks a bit fuzzy, when nothing is connected to it, but that goes away when my cable and Xbox360 are hooked into these inputs. Is this normal?

Thank you for the reply, i'll think about what you said.
