Summary: Have had mine since 2006 just replace the bulb for the first time about a month ago and its working like brand new. I've dusted out the inside twice and moved it 4 times over the years and have never had a issue. I love my TV but I want a bigger one now.....
Summary: We bought this TV new back around 2007, have moved twice, and have loved it the whole time. Never experienced any issues, love the picture quality and just plain big size of it. It is perfect for my wife, family and I to enjoy everything from The Real Housewives to Disney movies. The set is 14" deep and weighs 150 lbs. Its actually really easy to move with two people, and I've even moved it by myself (sliding on towels across the floor).
Summary: Sony has an issue with their LCDs called Optical Block problem and after the warranty is up has refused to repair this issue. I bought their 60 inch model back in 2005 and paid $3500 and now will cost $1200 to fix. Google it and you will see.
Summary: We got this for about 4 years now and the TV is pretty good. Using with Blu-Ray and DVD most of the time, the picture is one of the better ones. It has enough inputs and even our PC works fine on this screen. No issues whatsoever. Great TV!
Summary: I still own a old Emerson 19inch that out lived the Sony! The Emerson cost $100 in it's day and the Sony $2,500. The optical block is going out and we have replaced 2 lamps! I just found out recently that this is a major issue with this TV and from what I have researched Sony will do nothing to help! We also had a Sony Home Theater System die! Sony used to be the best quality! Not anymore!
Summary: We loved this tv, until we replaced the bulb at $100 each three times. Then blue dots started to appear on the screen. Slowly the entire screen became covered with these dots. Sony warranty was over, extended warranty says they can't replace the optics block at the tune of $1400 for the part alone. After some research, I found that there are lawsuits against Sony for not recalling this product for this reason.
Summary: Had this tv for 3 years an now have an optiacal block problem. $1000 to get it fixed All these tv's will end up with this same problem Sony support is blowing me off Learn from my big big big mistake Google it and you will see there is even a class action law suit going on I would stay away from all there tv's.
Summary: Do not buy this, do a google search on sony lcd rear projection televisions and you will find class action lawsuits about a optical block defect that shows up about 2 years of use. Sony has the worst customer support i have ever dealt with in my entire life. There are thousands of people stuck with these dust collectors that cost more to fix than they are worth.
