I am strongly considering purchasing a 40XBR800 TV with the matching stand (free at sonystyle). My wife, however, does not like the silver color of the stand and asked me if she could paint it! Does anyone have any experience or comments regarding painting the stand? Thanks

The stand matches the TV very nicely. Why would you want to paint it? If you don't like the color, I would purchase a different stand.
Be aware! The 40XBR is a 325 lb. beast, so if you don't get the Sony stand, be very careful!
Agoraquest/ABT is selling the TV and free stand for $2700, I believe cheaper than SonyStyle.

One word of advice here.
The stand is very limited in what you can put in it. If you have lots of gear - Receiver, vcr, HD receiver, etc there is not room.
I was forced to buy the new Sony Receiver AVD-C70 that would work with the HD-200. The rest of my gear (Tivo, Beta HiFi, S-VHS, etc were moved to a system down in the basement.
Here's a link to my gear and pictures of my system (Bandwidth warning): http://forums.audiworld.com/other/msgs/581437.phtml

I am getting the same TV delivered at the end of December from ABT with the free stand, but I have a solid oak entertainment unit that is able to hold the TV (actually weighs 306 pounds). I would suggest you go to some high class furniture stores (not the ones that sell you furniture you have to put together) and see what works. You should have the dimensions of the TV to make sure it fits, and a simple sitting on the stand should determine if it will hold (get more people there to sit on it to get higher weights, and if you don't hear any creaks, you have no worries). Then you can sell the stand in the classified ads for $300 (since they cost $500 + tax). I'm using my entertainment unit stand because of the color matches the rest of the unit, plus it does have way more storage capacity than that crappy Sony stand for all of my A/V boxes.
