Summary: I had this TV for five years and it was awesome. It was great for gaming, blu-ray and HDTV. The downside was I had to replace a fan that went bad which was pricey and a bulb that was a simple fix I could do myself. Another down/awesome side is I recently started having color issues and called Sony customer service and they were awesome. I just wanted to find out how to fix and and what the problem was AND...maybe get the part I needed.
Summary: I am fairly new to this set just picked it up several days ago. I am pleased with the purchase. Its easy to set up and its fairly light weight. I think its just over 100 lbs. The only problems I forsee (at least for me) at this point are the VGA input which is to hook up your PC. Will not go full screen regardless of what you do.
Summary: This is my second HDTV. I bought a Samsung DLP over a year ago and it is a great TV. I wanted another HDTV for my rec room. When beginning my research my sole intent was to buy antother Samsung, but because of he problems they are having with their light engines I went looking for another brand. All the reviews I read on the Sony were good, and I can see why. This TV is amazing. The picture quality is spectacular and it is very user friendly.
Summary: This is a great HDTV for the price. It's only bested by the high end Pioneer Elite plasma but the Pioneer 1080p model so far only comes in 50" and it's $7,000! In other words, for the price of this Sony, it compares favorably to a TV that is over 3 times as much money. One of the great benefits of the Sony SXRDs is that the internal display structure is very smooth so you can actually sit closer to them than with other TVs such as plasmas without having to worry about...
I would give it 5 stars except for the fan needing replacement.

Summary: First off, let me say that this SXRD TV has an absolutely flawless picture. I purchased the set in November and have enjoyed numerous football and basketball games since. Clarity, color, contrast, black level are all fantastic. No pixilization on the HD channels and the analog pictures do not suffer as much as most HD sets I have observed. That being said, I did have a problem that occurred one week after receiving the television.
Summary: The picture is superb. I have it hooked up to a BOSE sound system and a PS3. The video games and blu-ray are unbelievable. Now THIS is home theater. Indeed, the above may be more of an endorsement of 1080p than of the Sony KDS-60A2000, however the set couldn't look better in my living room, and as I said, the picture is superb. No problems hooking it up to the surround sound and PS3.
So far so good - but how to clean imprints from screen?

Summary: The ease of this order and delivery were awesome. Came way ahead of schedule. Picture quality is great, PC using VGA input cannot max out to full screen size, but the screen is already big enough so it works fine for our music/picture library purposes. One problem, can anyone advise? The screen seems to have paper impressions (like leaf stains on concrete) from the paper it was wrapped in. We've tried mild soap/water to no avail.
Summary: I have owned this TV for about 3 weeks now. TV Piture is great - HDTV is stunning. SDTV is even really good. This TV scored VERY high on Consumer Reports. I wonder has anyone else experienced the problem I have with PC input though: TV is 1080P (1920x1080 resolution) so shouldn't it be able to take a PC input at that resolution...??? Maybe it's bc it has a VGA PC input vs. DVI? But I can't get above 1300 somthing (1360 myabe) by 768 resolution on mine via the PC input.
Very disappointed about the service provided by Amazon

Summary: I ordered the Sony KDS-60A2000 on November 24, 2006. I recieved the TV on December 2nd, several days ahead of schedule. When the delivery guys took the TV out from the box, nothing was inside the box except the TV. No user's manual, remote control, warranty card, etc. I called Amazon immediately and was told to call Sony directly! I left a message to the Amazon's customer service and still have not heard from them!
