Ive been wondering about these sets myself as they sound amazing. They sell it as a monolithic design and say that there is an accessory metallic TV stand for like 200 bucks. I'm wondering if it comes with a regular stand though. Do I just have to lean it up against the wall after I get it until I order a mounting bracket which I don't want or the metallic stand which is too expensive?
Anyone know for sure if it comes with a standard stand?

I just noticed on Sony's website that the 46nx800 which was supposed to start shipping this week now says mid May. The 52" and 60" which are supposed to start shipping next week still have the same date, but as that comes and goes I'm betting it will be mid year as well. Oh well, I can hold my purchase off until next month but I'm not going to wait until may just to see if this set is as good as I hope it is, I'll go with a reliable set of today. Does anyone have any concrete information on this?

Good news, the Sony site now shows that the 52" is now in stock and shipping. Can;t wait to see a review on this set.

I have had my 52NX800 for about a week now. It was "pre-ordered" about 3 weeks ago from Sonystyle.com and delivered on 2/24.
So far, the set is great. Picture quality and color (skin tones, etc.) are excellent - I am quite pleased. The screen is moderately reflective (glossy), but the picture brightness is so good that reflections when viewing are not noticed. My set is in a southwest-facing 2-story room with many windows, but there is no problem.
The ethernet wiring is not installed to this location yet, so I have not tried the internet apps.
Having ordered the set sight unseen, I was apprehensive at first, but this TV was the right choice for me. This was one of the few LED/LCD screens that fit perfectly into my 52-inch wide built-in cabinet system that formerly held a rear-projection unit. The "monolithic" look is pleasing. When off, the set seems to disappear -- no gaudy chrome or lights.

Well, I've had mine for a week now. The reflections are not all that bad. Yes there are some, but (obviously) worse in the daytime. Just a matter of pulling a shade down. At night it's barely noticeable, pretty much a issue of light selection. I have only used the out of the box settings of general and sports. The color to me is pretty spot on. Good skin tones, grass is green...The blacks are not as bad as I thought. Viewing angle does make a difference, but not really a issue in my living room.
Now the but..but last night when we were watching a episode of Law & Order, and a movie, my wife noticed in the night/indoor scenes where there is black prevelant... The black/navy/dark colors were uneven, possibly pixilated? The issue doesn't seem to appear during the daytime. I was looking at the CNET recommended picture settings, and will try them tonight.
The sat box is hooked up to the TV via component connection. I eventually plan on using HDMI connections next week, along with a Blu-Ray as well.
This being my first HDTV experience, I am definitely "green". I don't want to overreact, but don't want to dismiss a real issue either.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Interested in the 60-inch version.
To verify, is this tv literally a glass panel or glossy? Some Samsung tvs are glossy too but they're not literally glass for example.
Also interested in its black levels and how it compares to Samsung's edge-lit versions as well as screen uniformity.
