No, no, no, no, no

  • Summary: I'm just seeing this TV here while looking for other TV's and am reminded of my experience with it. I bought this TV in early 2006. By 2009 it became clear that, well, it wasn't clear anymore, everything took on a yellow-green hue. And I won't rehash it all here but there was indeed a number of class action lawsuits against this and other Sony rear-projection LCD units.

Avoid this set - design defect resulting in class action lawsuit

  • Summary: This TV was very good when new. HOWEVER, it has a design defect which eventually results in poor color balance. The entire screen will have a green/yellow tint. The technical description is called optical blockage. There was a class action lawsuit against Sony for knowingly selling a defective set. Be warned - 100% of these sets will fail in this manner. It is a design defect that cannot be corrected.

Don't Walk - RUN from this TV!

  • Summary: Enter the model number in google and you will see the dozens of class action law suits associated with this TV. It has a manufacturer's defect in the optical block - resulting in a yellow/green tinge to the picture. It looks like you are looking through a dirty fishtank. The problem doesn't present itself until 2-3 years of use ... Do your homework!

  • Summary: The Light Engine/optical block of this TV has a fatal design flaw. it is the subject of a class action lawsuit against Sony. The picture may look great at first by gradually begins to fail, producing the dreaded "green blob." I have had the light engine replace 4 times with no success. Do a google search on sxrd green blob class action. Stay away from this TV!

Green Blob or Green Screen problem With This TV

treasureray, Ebay
11 March 2007
  • Summary: Both 50 and 60" model XBR1 TVs have a manufacturing defect with the optical block and light engine assys. After approx 1000 hours the TV develops the dreaded green screen problem...also called the "Green Blob" problem. Even if the parts are replaced the problem will reoccur in a matter of short time. Sony has yet to solve the problem and a lawsuit for these TVs has been filed by a NY atty.
