Well my baby is finally dying, after 2 years in this world. My electronic baby, my XBR65X900A, that is. Dark horizontal lines. Barely noticeable on most material but still there. So I guess that's what I got the extended warranty for. Best Buy was good, an gave me a credit for the closest Sony set out there, the 65XBR930D.
I decided to pay the difference and go for the XBR75X940D instead. I have to wait until December 9th for delivery, so I'm reading up on the forums, which might be a bad thing. I'm a videophile and notice when something in the picture isn't right. They didn't have a set on display anywhere in my city, so I'm buying based on reviews. The problem is, none of the reviews mentioned this "smearing effect". If I'm picky when it comes to my picture quality, is it a deal-breaker? My other option is to go with a 65" OLED but being a previous projector owner before the 900A, I know size makes a difference.
Bottom line is just how bad is this "smearing"? Has issue been resolved (I read most of this thread, but there's alot to read), and is it a deal breaker for videophiles?
Potential :smearing aside, coming from the 900A, do you think I will appreciate the image improvements, other than size?
