Great Picture, Sound Card has problems

dav890se, Ebay
8 February 2010
  • Summary: Bought on EBAY Dec 19, 09 and finally got a chance this past weekend Feb 06, 2010 to check out the set. My wife and duaghter had complained that is was not working right. Set has great picture but, the sound has issues. Volume needs to set above 30 to hear it, sound cuts out periodically for several minutes, and it make a click/snap noise when you change channels. I will be calling SONY to correct.

Great TV for the money, but black level suffers at viewing angle

JoeD, Amazon
25 January 2010
  • Summary: I am very pleased with this TV for the price. This is my first HDTV and after watching NFL Playoff games on my friend's HDTV and not having one of my own, I said no more. I have viewed many flat panel TVs at friends' and families' homes in the past few years. Everything from a low end 22" Sony LCD TV from Walmart to a 60" Pioneer KURO Plasma TV and I knew if I was going to buy an LCD TV, I wanted the video quality to be closer to the KURO than the Sony from Walmart.

Good little TV for the price

S. Nelson, Amazon
5 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this TV to use as a computer monitor, but it turned out to not be so good for that. It has a ghosting effect. I talked with tech support and we went through all the possible settings. They even shipped me a USB with the updates. Nothing fixed my problem. So, don't buy this TV to use as a computer monitor. However, as for a TV - it's GREAT! Everything looks clean and bright. Video games also look awesome.

Perfect for my bedroom

John Paul Jones "John", Amazon
28 October 2009
  • Summary: It's features are easy to understand and picture is clear. Price is cheaper than local store. One of the things I considered buying this because of my past experience as far as the quality is concerned. I owned a big screen (63') since 1994 and never gave me a problem, but I'm going to get rid of it soon for flat screen.

Its all that I expected

E. Golden "nocman", Amazon
15 July 2009
  • Summary: I received my kdl-32xbr9 last evening. While I was very excited to get it installed on its perch, I was also apprehensious that I might damage it. My wife and i worked together to place it on equipment stand and hook up the hdmi cable and the external audio cables. The documentation is not very extensive in its explanations.However I found that the controls/menu were easy to understand what effect they were having.

Looking Good

Bonnie Dale, Amazon
22 June 2009
  • Summary: As a result of some recent remodeling, we found that a new TV was in order. We did our research and settled on the Sony product. After checking local rtailers, we found that the very best price was at Amazon.com. The TV arrived right on time and was easily installed, up and running, and being greatly enjoyed in no time at all. The picture quality is wonderful. Great company with a great product, offered through a superb website - it all adds up to customer satisfaction.

New or Return Unit?

Bruce Norman, Amazon
4 May 2009
  • Summary: We bought this for our master bedroom - my wife loves the picture, thinks the sound is fine and doesn't mind waiting for 30 seconds or so for the TV to "boot up" as she believes that following the Energy Star guidelines is the right thing to do. The one issue we had is that this unit had clearly been opened previously.

XBR9 = REDUCED SOUND QUALITY OVER XBR-6

M. Frost "1sttexan", Amazon
22 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought an XBR-6 a few eeeks ago and absolutely loved it 5 stars. So I figured an XBR-9 would be that much better. Wrong!! The picture is great as long as you turn off all of the light enhancing features. Don't know why they even bother with them. Nothing beats self adjusting. The 9 takes much longer to start up. Its like booting up a computer.The menu is more complex for no appearant reason. The XBR-6 has double the sound quality of the XBR=9.

Great TV, but a Few Issues

Liann, Amazon
4 April 2009
  • Summary: First, let me say this TV excels on many levels. Picture quality is great, pre-set picture settings are almost spot on, but plenty of flexibility to adjust, decent off-angel viewing, matte screen deals well w/ bright lighting (we have a lamp directly across from the TV and only notice a reflection in truly dark scenes), and of course the long history of Sony quality standing behind it.
