Summary: The TV can loaded with the latest firmware. It arrived in excellent condition, no damage to the box. Setup was simple. My Oppo 83 is hooked directly into a HDMI port; the picture look superb. I just wish I had bought two at $697; the price is back up to $899. My Roku goes into a second HDMI port, and it look great.
Summary: I love this Sony TV, it is the Bravia series that allows you to sync with other Sony products, like my dvd player and home sound system. The picture is great and I like the many options in the menu that allows you to customize the TV. Most people don't bother using this system and that is a shame. You can make the TV look better or maybe I should say look the way you prefer to watch it. TV's were designed to be watched in the dark, not light.
Summary: This is the first flat screen HDTV that I have ever purchased. I, like many others looking for HDTVs, did a lot of research before finding "the one". I'm extremely satisfied with this as my first purchase. I've owned it for a little over 2 months now and have gotten a lot of use out of it already. Right out of the box the TV not only looked great but had a sturdy feel to it. This is a well designed TV and doesn't feel flimsy or cheaply made.
Summary: I needed HDTV for the bedroom and wanted one that was wall mountable and viewable at a 12' distance. Having recently acquired a superb Bravia 55XBR8 for the living room I just wanted to scale it down a size or two. The picture qualities are similar, with true colors and dark blacks with few visual artifacts. This a great midsize TV for sports.
Summary: This was a Christmas gift to my daughter and her family. The report I received was very positive. I was told the image of the Wii games they play makes it look like real life "When playing golf, you can see every blade of grass." "We Love it!
Summary: While looking at TV's at Costco, it was easy to see that Sony had the best picture. After living with the Sony Bravia 46" bought there, I decided on a 32" for my office. The picture is superb! The picture appears 12 seconds after pressing the On button. There are plug-ins galore on the back, more than the average person will ever need. The sound system lacks a desk rattling bass, which is fine with me.
Summary: Thrilled with the picture and feature set. Sound is about the best of any tv speakers although it would obviously be enhanced by external speakers. Felt it was a great value too at the price I paid during the Holiday Season. Was deciding between this high end 32 inch model and the low end 40" S5100 model by Sony. Glad I went with this one.
Summary: We have enjoyed the Sony TV. After doing much research on LCD TVs and because we do not buy TVs very often - we chose this upscale Sony TV. It has been as advertised! Regarding some of the criticism on this TV that the screen seems to go "dark" sometimes which is likely tied to the energy saving features -- there is supposed to be a firmware upgrade; my TV was manufactured in November 2009 and it came from the factory with the firmware already upgraded.
