I would take the Sony over the Mitsubishi for sure based on reliability alone.

I'm not so sure that is a valid argument these days...

All I keep hearing about is how Mits keeps using cheap components like very cheap capacitors that only last until the warranty runs out or a little longer and then they shut down the TVs. A few extra cents per capacitor would solve this issue but to save likely only about $2.00 total for all capacitors they went with parts that cannot last, but shut the TV down.

It seems if you buy a Mitsubishi you better take a soldering class so you can replace them yourself or junk the TV. :lol:

Does anyone know where to find the 40" XBR9 package online? I was very interested before Christmas. I just didn't have enough money at the time. Now I feel completely horrible that I missed such a great deal.

does anyone think the package deal will come back?

bb and abc have alternately offered those bundles. my guess- wait 3 weeks til the return period is over for christmas and you will see these offers pop up again
