Summary: I have owned this TV since March 2010. It has been replaced once already by SONY under warranty replacement. I will give SONY proper credit, they replaced the old (read - broken) TV within 10 days with a brand new unit. The old one started to FREEZE and eventually would not turn on or off either using the remote or the onboard power switch. The software/user interface/programming on this TV is total crap; shoddy at best.
Summary: I'm happy with my purchase, and the seller. Misunderstood the following.... PIP means Picture in Picture form PC to TV. P&P means Picture and Picture between 2 existing channels on the TV PIP means Picture in Picture form PC to TV.
Excellent picture quality, bad light reflection, and bad software design

Summary: I owned this TV for the past 30 days. In general, I enjoy it (I mean: I have to enjoy sicne I paid 600 bucks). As I say in the title, I like the picture quality. But there are several cons that I must mention which annoy me quite a bit while watching TV: 1) the software/menu/settings design is user-unfriendly as someone else also mentioned; 2) there is no headphone output; 3) another thing that annoys me a lot is the time that it takes way too long to switch from one...
Summary: we have had this tv for about one year now it is not working.repairman has been trying to fix it for 2 months.sony tech support keeps offering advice on what parts to replace however it never works.my warranty was over by 2 weeks when this stopped working.should have bought a extended warranty however only $300 less then what we paid for the tv.we did not buy this tv from walmart because @ the time did not carry sony.will not buy sony again.
Summary: Hookup is easy, picture is fine, no blurs in movement, sound satisfacory for normal TV (although you'd need a home-theater system for movies). That said, there are other features which are annoying as the devil. It takes almost a minute after pushing the "on" button before there is anything on the screen, and then a "Sony" logo appears which stays on-screen for almost another minute, during which time you cannot select a channel.
