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. The picture might be good but how long will it last.....for me it only lasted 1 year and 4 months.
