Summary: I received my 32" xbr9 yesterday. The television has an excellent picture with great color as long as i sit directly in front of it. Once I go a little to the side the picture begins to wash out. So with two or more people in the room only one person gets the good picture. I also hear a popping noise every once in a while ( sounds electrical ). Also the picture about once every two minutes might freeze for a very split second then catch up to where it is supposed to be.
Summary: bought it for the resolution speed and sony reliabilty. set broke after three weeks. dell who sold me the tv were not interested because 21 days had passed since invoice date. sony lied through there teath about what was wrong until i blew then they agreed to swap the set. i have had to pay for this second set until i return the crap they sold me AT MY EXPENSE.then they say they will reemburse me. Dells after care is non exisyant Sony is very little better.
