OK, about the stuck pixels...
To complain about 2 pixels is either OCD or you shouldn't have bought an LCD.
The fact of the matter is that 2 stuck pixels out of 6+ million subpixels is a near perfect LCD. If manufacturers discarded every panel with one bad transister out of 6+ million the production yield would be cost prohibitively low and there would be no large screen LCD's on the market. PERIOD. By living with one or two stuck pixels you allow the technology to even exist and evolve on the consumer level.
To point the finger at Sony and say they're going downhill when the industry standard is to accept a stuck pixel or two is inflammatory and totally detracts from the cloudiness problem, if it indeed too, can be shown to be a defect that Sony needs to own up to. Sony's line is that that's just the technology and appears in their sets as a consequence of their brilliant lighting technology. (and that in low ambient light such lighting can be changed in the settings to reduce its noticibility). That's Sony's claim. Everybody here just says "nuh uh" Well, why not prove it instead. Show that that's not the case. Research it. Find out who has fine XBR2s and find out what's different. That's the kind of information you'll need in a lawsuit.
I have 1 stuck pixel which I can see from 10 feet away but I don't care, I bought LCD knowing that i'd have to live with that. The cloudiness is a surprise though, and am still undecided if I want to keep the set. I do like that you're all taking action, but I recommend you do it in a less emotional way and with a more logical and focused approach. "the cloudiness is ugly and i don't like it so it's a defect" is about as logical as saying "I can see pixels and they're ugly so they're a defect." You assert there's a defect, now - back it up. Somebody offer the research and proof and THAT will hold weight in court, THAT would push Sony into a corner. I might start some research into the matter myself, but I will not join any class action lawsuit or Service Event number pooling until we put emotion aside and start approaching it in a more critical and fair manner.
