I can't wait to put the 46" XBR3 along with a BLU-RAY into another room -- pleasantly surprised when I saw the floating glass on this LCD!!
Sony's product design has been SO lackluster and blah as of late. Totally lacking their attention to detail and good design.
Even the X series that we'd been seeing for the past few months has only been passable.
I'm SO happy to see this (XBR3) much cleaner, more refined design come out of them.
PS: Back when I was looking at the older floating glass design plasma's and LCDs (which I thought were classic... as, apparently did everyone else since all the other manufacturers bit off that design a generation or so later) ALL the reviews I read ALWAYS mentioned the floating glass design (and how awesome it was). I'd have to agree.
