Just called up the Sony outlet store and they have refurbished xbr sets for a "significant" discount I was told. They would not give me a quote over the phone. I was told that these tv's are anything from returns to cosmetically flawed sets to other things. He said that they have all been cheked by the factory after returned to insure they are working properly. Have any of you guys bought one of these sets? I asked about extended waranty and he told me to call Sony to see if they offer anything. What is everyones thought on this route?
