My aunt and uncle use to work for at a Sony plant here in town.
They bought a 55" XBR1 SXRD around 2005. I liked it so much I bought a 55" A2000 in October of 2006. We both bought our displays at the Sony Store in the plant at employee discounted prices.
They now have the green haze/blob problem and blue tint everywhere from a bad optic block. (We both bought the 5 year extended warranty from them)
They called Sony yesterday about a repair and Sony said there was a recall on those sets. They offered them to either 1. fix it for free or 2. give them a 52" Bravia W-series for $850. They only gave them 2 weeks to decide.
Has anyone else heard of such a thing?
Do all SXRD models have the green haze/blob problem?
My warranty wont be up until October 2011 so I'm good for a few more years. Their set is on all the time, compared to ours, which is only on 25-40 hours a week. (I'm now worried that our set will outlast theirs and fail after the warranty expires)
