Someone else posted in the other thread that the MSRP for the bundle itself is $299 now. The added glasses and MLB last until the end of the month. Who knows what they will do then. Bundle Gran Turismo 5 XL with it??

For anyone wondering about the warranty, which I couldn't find online anywhere, the insert says it has a 1 yr warranty, and people claim sony is covering shipping to return and send you a new one when it breaks, so at least it should be good for a year without buying any extended warranty.

I'm curious what build dates everyone has, broken or working. It is in very small print above the SN on the back. Mine is Sept 2011. It's been fine for the short week I've had it. I've noticed the speaker quality is very dependent on the game, some sound really good and surround-like, others sound tinny. Not sure if it is how the developer coded the audio or just certain types of music sound better on it.

I was reading on another forum most all were manufactured in August or September 2011. I still have mine sitting here wondering if I should keep it or take it back. I went back and was going to get Best Buys replacement warranty but it's $50 for 2 years, including one of those also covered by SONY. My return window ends before the 31st and I'm just wondering what deals may show up then with the MSRP drop.

On the fence about this item. I would really like MLB The Show cause I got it on Vita, and this could replace the 24" TV I already have and sell it. Knowing me I would get the warranty and I would have the only one that lasts longer then it. Does this deal end at the end of this month?

:-#You sold items you didn't yet have on hand? That makes no sense whatsoever.


it doesn't have to make sense to you - it's been handled and i've been doing it for years with minimal backfires, just a little personal added stress. 8-)

not all online business practices are done by the books, there's risk and rewards.

After about of week of use, there's a huge dark spot in the middle of the screen. Very disappointed in it.

I got one and I am thrilled with it. I am using it as a pc monitor as well. Looks great, sounds great, and I got the 2 year warranty with it. If I get 2 years out of it I will be happy since it is scratching the 3d itch for now. 3d is amazing but not for everyone.

If only it came with some sort of manufacturer's warranty that could help out in this, your time of need!
