Summary: AMAZON is the only way to purchase large screen HD-TV's like this. They don't publicize it as much as they should, but they ship all large screen TV's with WHITE GLOVE service, at no extra charge. When you compare what all the other online retailers charge for this service, AMAZON is the LEAST EXPENSIVE. And to cap it all, they also have a no quibble/no cost return policy. AMAZON delivered my TV with free (White glove) shipping in 4 days.
Summary: I've had this SonyKDSA2000 for 3 weeks and have already had a factory tech come and replace something called an optical block. This part had a scratch on it and caused the screen to show a baseball sized gray spot that showed itself on bright scenes. Now the lighter colored backgrounds look like fine woven fabric and are very distracting. Maybe I got a lemon. Mine never looked nearly as impressive as the one on display which was shockingly beautiful.
