Summary: Bought this in 2008 including extended warranty. Set is now FUBAR. Warranty claim is going nowhere. Panel needs to be replaced but is no longer made. Warranty is NOT from SONY even though it was bought from SONY direct. SONY has been NO help resolving the issue.
Summary: I actually had no complaints with the TV...while it worked. However, 8 months after the 18 month warranty expired, the LCD panel began showing thin, approx. 6 inch horizontal lines of light. The lines got progressively worse and then two "boxes" of discoloration appeared.
Summary: I bought this screen about 1 year ago. So I've had quite a test drive. I've watched Netflix streaming via a PS3. I've watched blu-ray movies, standard movies, HD TV and standard TV, photos, browsed the internet.
Summary: I bought the unit direct from SONYSTYLE for $2200.00 in Jan 2009. It had an 18 month warranty and I bought a 4-year extended warranty ($200)from SONY. Good thing to. The main digital circuit board and LDC panal failed at 17 months 20 days, just before warranty expired.
Summary: I researched the LCD TV arena extensively and Sony kept coming up as the "Top Dog". I found the Sony KDL-46XBR9 on sale from Crutchfield for $999.00 delivered and jumped on it. The set-up was as quick as 1-2-3. The picture? Wow!!! I was blown away.
Summary: The tv gets compliments from everyone that comes over. Killer picture quality! Can't go wrong with a Bravia! I'm not being a sony fan-boy but with all the research I've done, many experts point right back to the Bravia.
Summary: This TV was over $2600 when new, 900 bucks is a steal! I always tend to buy the best TVs you can get about 10 months after they come out and you can really save. This one is no dissappointment.
