The guy at CC told me this sale is to clear out a discontinued model, so they can't order anymore. I'm guessing that means they are non-N sets, but he was adamant they weren't getting a newer XBR960, so it might be an N. Forgot about BB, they said they would match the $1579 price, but not $1449.
It's hard to tell how many of the 960s are actually bad, since each bad one generates a lot of noise compared to the good ones that no one ever talks about, but I've read quite a few posts all over the net from people who went through 3 bad ones in a row.
I'm gonna hit BB and CC after work and get a first hand look at them.
I'm starting to think that combining the best HDTV picture with questionable quality-control and a clueless army of sales zombies is someone at Sony's idea of a practical joke.
