DOH!!!!

I just got a new 55" Sony 3d for my living room. During install I didn't notice I had about a .5 inch diff in clearance on my wall mount and knocked the antenna/coaxial input off. I'm glad I actually bought the accidental ins. Now I have to wait for repair.

on the other hand my wife has resigned to the bedroom to watch TV, so I've had many uninterrupted hours of GT5 in 3D. Socom4 is AWESOME in 3D as well.

Sony is the worst brand you can buy, esp. in TVs. their software is full of bugs and their customer support is very bad. good luck with your TV though.

Yeah? well opinions are like assholes; everybody's got one.

I wouldn't touch it if you have insurance. they may just say you voided it by servicing it yourself.

Sony is like a decade behind on everything. You should return it and get another brand.

You officially went full retard.

Welcome to the OT. As a bit of a warning. You are headed in a poor direction at the moment. While opinions are welcome here, yours tend to be somewhat ignorant and trollish.

All of my TV's are Sony LCD and they kick ass. Never had a problem with any of the previous Sony's either.
