    Had my Sony kdfe50a12 installed today. The picture quality is superb but I am somewhat surprised at how noisy the fan on this unit is. Anyone else noticed similar symptoms? :(

    I will tommorow - apparently they have the thing in stock so I can just pick it up and take it away if I like it.

    Don't know if I should buy it from Sony direct or Comet/Currys...

    John Lewis is 5 year and they have one in stock at the moment so somebody must have cancelled.

    Not surprising really as I just got a call from their delivery company to arrange delivery and the best they can do is a week on Thursday. That will make it 14 days from ordering to receiving it.
    If I wanted to wait that long I could have bought it from Robert Whytes, got the same 5 year warranty and saved £50 as well.

    Won't use John Lewis again :( Paaahh!

    Only noticed the fan noise when I was round the back messing with cables. Can't say I've noticed it during normal TV use.

    The three year warranty is only at selected Sony Centre stores, check before you buy.

    Cheers

    The fan on my unit seemed quite noisy at first, i have it installed in a corner, so i moved the unit away from the wall a little more and it seemed a lot quieter, (like the noise wasn't bouncing off the wall any more) i can only hear it when i am up close putting a disk in now. :)
