I'm roughly at the same stage you're at right now, and I'm finding myself dissatisfied with each of the replacements Sony is offering. As you said, the 40" and 46" options are non-starters, because they're too small. I don't know anyone who would seriously consider those options when the TV they're replacing is over 40% bigger (in viewing area). It's almost as if these options are just thrown on the list merely to make us feel like we're part of the decision process.
That leaves us with the 55" offering. The TVs offered for the 55" option are okay, but not stellar. The ones I've seen offered each have some meaningful design deficits. The NX810 is one of the better ones offered, but not great. The problem is they're asking us to shell out some real money, so I feel like I'm actually buying a TV (granted, at a REALLY good sale). If I were out shopping for a TV though, there's no way I would buy an NX810. It's an older model they're trying to clear off the shelves to make room for the current generation of TVs. It's so out-of-date, it's difficult to even find information on Sony's website for the NX810.
I guess the other thing that irritates me is that my current 55A2000 (sporting the green blob) is still under warranty with my extended warranty which I purchased from Sony, and the warranty is essentially worthless. Sony's replacement program won't even acknowledge it. (Sorry, this last paragraph was off-topic, but I just had to vent.)
