Summary: I found myself being drawn more deeply into the Sony’s picture than most of the RPTVs I’ve seen lately. This is even more impressive when you consider that the Sony's list price is only $2500. Picture sharpness is excellent, especially with an HDMI connection and the amount of detail revealed in dark scenes is simply outstanding. Strong colors tend to be a bit overblown, but not in a terribly objectionable way.
Conclusion: The Sony KDS-55A2020 delivers impressive color and big-screen 1080p resolution at an affordable price. If you seek plenty of picture for your money, this Sony should be high on your short list.
Pros: Good color quality. Comprehensive menu options. Responsive remote control.
Cons: Does not support 1080p input via VGA or component-video ports. Widescreen PC input left large black border around image.
