Summary: This is my first HDTV. Bought it through Amazon, not the 'alternate' sellers listed. As always, Amazon processed the order very quickly, and it was delivered within a week by Eagle USA, who did an excellent job, also they unpacked it and helped me put it where I wanted it. TV works great, picture is very nice, even non-HD channels. No problems with TV at all. And, it's 'Assembled in USA' which is quite rare when talking about TVs.
Summary: Awesome HD picture from free "off-air" local HD channels using 'rabbit' ears attenna or HD channels on Direct TV (1080i) with HD package. With basic Direct TV (480), the picture is poor. This set is great only with HD viewing.
Summary: I got this tv @ the beginning of Feb. 2007. I have HD satellite reception and I'm loving it. The tv looks great and has been pretty easy to set up and use. My living room is somewhat large and I have about 12 + feet of distance between me and the screen. Even though 60" is pretty big, it took a little time to get used to it, but I think it's a good size. I'm very happy with my tv and would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: We bought our Sony during the Pre-Superbowl Price War on this Sony model. It was $2099 at Circuit City. The TV is great in all respects and I can think of no complaints. An interesting note has to do with our set up. We got the set home and hooked it up to a new 'Over the Air' OTA antenna we had purchased and just laid on the roof to see the Superbowl. The picture was great.
Summary: By trade I am a College Professor of Communications. I worked in the wonderful world of Media for 20 years. I extensively researched HDTV's before making this purchase. I looked at the Samsung DLP (about the same size) and a couple of others. I also looked at ratings online by key websites that rate HDTV's. I went to the store and looked at them side by side. I decided to go with this Sony, it looked a bit sharper than the others. Hooking it up was easy.
Summary: I am a long time Big Screen owner and was happy with my 6 year old 57" XBR rear projection, until I saw the image quality of this LCOS TV. Without question, this is the finest TV on the market when judging value to output quality. The colors are vibrant, the blacks are really black and the sharpness of the image when in 1080i are remarkable.
Summary: We bought this set with the A/V stand made for it and the Sony DAV-FX500 XM-Ready Five-Disc DVD Dream System from Amazon on Jan. 1. Everything arrived together, ahead of the estimated arrival date. Delivery service was excellent. We had everything cabled up and running within a couple hours (including 1 hour assembly of the stand). The TV attaches neatly and securely to the stand minimizing probability of tipping (from cats, babies, etc.). The Dream System ROCKS !
Summary: Was waiting until I felt the time was right to upgrade my home system. With this TV at this price...both are right. I read several review sites and then went to a bunch of stores to check out the ones I narrowed down side by side. It came down to his one and the Samsung. At first, looked like the Samsung had more brilliant color. But then in watching both I noticed the Samsung did not handle motion nearly as well...a lot of artifacting. The Sony was pretty rock solid.
Very Well Made SONY, Great Delivery Service, Best Price

Summary: I purchased this TV after returning a shoddy Samsung. The SONY costs a bit more, but is really worth it. It's made with heavier plastic and a far superior screen that doesn't warp. Look at the weights of the different TVs -- you really do want one has some weight to it rather than thin styrofoam-like plastic. Watching TV on this SONY is like being right there when the Hi-Def is displayed. The image is very sharp and the color vivid.
