46XBR2 Nov. Build Massive Clouds

Purchased 12/16/2006
Delivered 12/17/2006
Returned 1/17/2006


To all the folks who claim that the clouds don't affect the viewing experience, try watching Good Night and Good Luck or anything else shot in Black & White for that matter Gee it's foggy in that news room; maybe they didn't have air conditioning.

KDL-40V2500

November build

Mildly Cloudy


I got this TV in exchange for a defect Samsung LN-S4095D, which I believe has the same panel. Cloudiness on the Samsung was worse than on the Sony. Love the Sony, otherwise!

True! but for what it's worth...

KDL-46XBR2

AUGUST '06

Slightly Cloudy on L side& L topcorner & tiny leakage in R lower corner


Kept it & decided to tolerate it with Backlight 5,Brightness 48 & Picture at 90.(NO POWER saving!)

Never went thru the hassle to Return it and wait weeks for what may be a worse replacement. We really wanted a nice TV NOW, so we kept it. Plus this was our first HDTV. So, one can only expect our next HDTV in 5 years will be better.

I'm on my third KDL-40V2500 from BB:


#1-Purchased 12/14/06 - October '06 Mexico, distinctly cloudy and one very bright corner.


#2-Exchanged 1/4/07 - December '06 Mexico, clouds still visible but in less contrast to the dark areas and two (less) bright corners.


#3-Exchanged 1/14/07 - also December '06 Mexico, clouds about same as #2, one bright corner (a keeper? - never thought I'd have to choose the lesser of evils when I entered into this mess)

My KDL-46XBR2 just has been delivered in a factory sealed box. I bought it from Best Buy 3days ago. It was manufactured at Mexico in December 2006.


I did not turn it ON yet but called to SONY service and ordered firmware update to be within 30 days from the date of purchase. The update as they stated should be delivered by mail within 7-8 working days.

Slightly Cloudy


I say slightly b/c it is affected by temperature (warm up and ambient temp), by what I can tell. I can't complain b/c I got the 1080p set for under 2K. GREAT PICTURE!
