congrats on saying about the dumbest comment I have heard in a long while.
Sony LCD's are the best so it's no wonder they cost the most.
"Sony recalls 16,000 LCD TVs in Japan"
"Software glitch: Sony to recall Bravia LCD TVs
The Bravia TV range was launched late last year worldwide, and it is
estimated that around 400,000 TVs may be affected globally."
Then there's the problem of having "cloudy" black screens:
Everyone who really knows electronics will tell you that Sony hasn't
been a quality name since the 1970s.
Why don't you head on over to the AVS Forum and start a thread about
how Sony's XBR sets are not quality electronics and see how far you
Sorry pal, but you're a mile off on this one.
Why bother, you did see that the last link I posted was from the AVS
forum, right? Did you bother to click it?
Here it is again:

Sony admits that there is a problem:
Important Information About Your Sony(R) BRAVIA(tm) Television!
The Sony BRAVIA line of flat-panel LCD televisions reflects our
commitment to the highest picture quality standards. The KDL-40XBR2/3
and KDL-46XBR2/3 series televisions have received exceptionally high
ratings for picture performance from many well respected home theater
sources, including the Editor's Choice Award from CNET(tm) and critics at
Sound & Vision Magazine.
To achieve this high level of performance and picture clarity, Sony
utilizes a very bright backlight setting. This helps deliver the
brightest picture possible, as well as exceptional picture clarity
even in the darkest image sources.
However, the setting, under certain dark viewing conditions,
especially blank screens with no video source, may cause the screens
on some of these televisions to exhibit slightly uneven uniformity.
This condition is not usually visible under typical viewing
conditions, such as watching movies or television programming, and
generally should not affect your viewing experience.
Should you find that this condition does affect your viewing
enjoyment; there are a few settings that you can make to minimize this
Setup Menu --> Light Sensor: ON
Setup Menu --> Power Saving: Low or High
Picture Menu --> Reduce the Backlight Level (Factory Setting: 10)
A combination of the above changes may be applied as necessary.
If your television still does not meet with your approval after these
setting adjustments, Sony Electronics will provide a Self Service
Software Update that will further minimize the condition. Upon
request, Sony will ship this update with directions directly to you
when it becomes available in mid-February.
All terms of your Sony limited warranty continue to apply. We
apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, and we continue
to stand behind our product and our loyal customers.
