Went and bought this last Saturday from my local store.
Fantastic TV at a great price....at least £50 cheaper than any other retailer (online/offline).
I'm sure people know this by now, but until end of September Sony are doing free 3 year warantee on all of their Bravia sets; all you have to do is register your purchase online, if I have understood correctly.
Depite some of the reviews mentioning bad cases of backlight bleed, I dont see it as *too* much of an issue on mine anyways. It is only visible if you're watching in completedarkness AND the screen is displaying an image which is 95% flat black...otherwise, me thinks you'll be fine :D
Unfortunately, you cannot order over the net, but give the store a call and reserve before you go to collect. PS, mine was from the Southgate branch.
If you feel this is a smashing deal, you know what to do!
