Summary: I have been using my Sony in the kitchen area for two or three years. It has performed perfectly with an exceptional picture. What more can you ask from a TV than it provides an excellent picture with no problems. I have a larger Samsung in my living room with a similar experience. I hope that my expectations are not just a fluke with tvs that meet them.
Summary: It's great I've had it for over 3 years now is performing as promised and I can't say enough about it. It's awesome to work with my ps3 turns on automatically through the HDMI cable is 1080 P 032 inch you know I mean just perfect for any room a bedroom
Worked well for 2.5 years but seeing ports fail now

Summary: I bought this TV 2.5 years ago and I was quite happy with the price and the TV for quite a while. I have not applied a firmware update to it yet. The only long standing issue that I haven't been able to resolve is that for a dark scene on the TV, the TV will dim so much that I can't see the details of what is going on. This happens in dark and well lit rooms. I've tried messing with the settings and turning up the backlight and brightness, but it hasn't really helped.
Summary: The dongle needed to be purchased for wifi access should be noted in large bold-faced letters on the box and or on the internet before all else. The TV software is updated regularly and it loses your settings for amazon video. Remember your password for SONYSTYLE als it will not forward password resets correctly. SONY, get your act together. Had similar problems in past with their itune version (weak). Burned again by Sony.
Summary: I bought this primarily to use as a monitor for my Vaio. Getting the two to work together and get the correct resolution was a bit of work, but Sony support was helpful. The TV worked great for about a year (and it has a one-year warranty). After one year the screen would randomly get a dark yellow haze and the picture would act as if it were in slow motion. This was for both TV and as a computer monitor. Eventually it got unbearable and I had to replace the TV.
Replace Screen Display after 12 months to the tune of $650!

Summary: I purchased this TV via Amazon.com on January 11, 2010. On January 27, 2011, the screen went black, when I took it into the repair shop, they said I needed to replace the screen display to the tune of $650.00 - more than I paid for the TV ($500). When I asked the technician if this was unusual after only a year, his replay "these TV's are built for price, not for quality". Now, I embark on the long journey to see if the mfg warranty will cover this - I'm taking bets!
Summary: I bought this TV sight unseen assuming that it would be a quality product because of the brand name. I was wrong. The picture is not nearly as good as other brands in this price range, and I have had an intermittant problem with the power supply for the last 3 months. The TV would turn itself off randomly, without any timers being set. Tonight the TV fails to turn on, and Sony customer service fails to help.
Summary: I'll never buy anything from Sony again after purchasing this TV. I have been on customer service calls 3 different times. Not only does the sound suck, my HDMI ports do not work on the TV. Upon first working with my cable company trying different HDMI cables, cable boxes and TVs, we discovered that it IS this TV which has a faulty HDMI port.
Summary: I've managed to experience all of the glitches reported with this set: - audio cuts out (almost like old school station drift) from cable box. channel must be changed in order to rectify. - "Red flash" where set tries to resolve background and skin tones... shifts back and forth continuously from red to neutral colors. VERY annoying.
