Summary: 7.21/2011- I brought the Sony XBR series TV on Amazon 1 year and 8 months ago. The TV failed; a tech verified the LCD panel has gone bad after 1 year and 8 months of service. In the tech's own words-the panel is a factory defect since it should not failed after just a little over a year of service.
Warning : Failed after 1 year, If you have to have a Sony XBR then buy Extended Warranty or BUY another brand

Summary: Here's my story, hope someone can learn from my tragic mistake. Furthermore, I just realized the LCD panel is actually made by Samsung NOT Sony. If you buy a Sony TV; why is the LCD Panel (the most important and expensive part of the TV) is made in Korea by Samsung.
