If you buy any Sony make sure you purchase an extended warranty plan for as many yeas as you plan to own it. Look at the Sony Wega LCD. One year warranty and all of the $1800 optical blocks are failing after the warranty has expired. If you buy don't plan on keeping it forever like a crt set. With Sony put it in the same permanence as paper towels.

Its always good to check for reviews before you buy any item.It will cost you nothing, but you will know the pros & Cons about the particular item.
China items are cheap, thats true. But you can not assure for quality.
So dont go for less price, always go for quality.
Since it was said "Quality comes with cost"

Some good online store to check :
