Excerpt: I bought this LCD TV from the Sony store brand new. Picture and sound quality were ok, but there were features that did not work to my satisfaction, like the Closed Caption and Subtitles. No matter what setting I selected, closed caption did not appear on the screen most time, even with movie that were broadcasting this feature. Another thing that I was not happy with was the version of Netflix included with this model.
Summary: I purchased the 40 inch on a clearance price below Amazon, say $200.00 less. All I can say is for the price, based on a original over $1000.00 manufacture suggested retail, I knew I was way ahead. It isn't a perfect TV, but I don't think you will find one. This however is the one of the best panels out there. I like a Plasma look, but this has just as good or better black levels and color as any I have seen. It is a full 1080 capable TV.
Summary: We ordered this about a year and a half ago as a Christmas present for me. I had done a lot of research, as I always do with more expensive items, and this Sony model seemed to be the best for what I wanted (Wifi enabled). The set was super easy to set up and I was thrilled - until about six months later, when the set just stopped working. The "Sony" would light up when you turned the set on, but then nothing.
excellent picture, but the software is a bit lacking, and dark scenes are messed up

Summary: I got this unit and have used it for a few weeks. The picture quality of the tv is simply breathtaking. Its one of the cheapest smart tv's out there, but the picture is up there with the best. However, being one of the first LED tvs, it suffers heavily from lack of uniformity. One can see the white edge LED lights at an angle, which is very annoying since its noticeable on the screen in dark scenes. For bright/ day scenes, the picture is in a league of its own.
Summary: I purchased the Sony Bravia EX620 as a refurbished/used model & was a little concerned about the quality. I had no reason to be concerned - it came perfectly packaged as if brand new & was so easy to set up once I figured out how to connect the stand to TV. I am only 5'3 and I was able to easily assemble and set it up on stand by myself. The picture and sound are amazing!
Summary: I bought this LED Sony TV to replace the larger LCD Sharp that was moved to another room. I wanted to make the room feel bigger since it would be in a relatively small space. Overall, I am impressed with the brightness of the TV and how quickly the picture appears. I have gotten used to LCD TVs taking several seconds to appear that I am pleasantly surprised when I use this TV.
Summary: Well I have had this TV for over a week now and I"m very happy with it. At first when I hooked it up I was worried it wouldn't fit where my old LCD tv did. No problem it fit like a glove... I have it in bedroom and when i first put it on I was disappointed with the color., I thought it was flat. But when I put it on "vivid" mode I was blown away! the picture was so clear!!! The show I was watching looked almost soap opearish..
Summary: Arrived defective. Sony is in the process of replacing. This is the third electronic/appliance that I receive from Amazon that has arrived either used, broken or both. 3/10/12 Update. Sony exchanged the first Bravia. We were told that the replacement would be new. It was not. Second Bravia lasted two hours. Screen black. Will call on Monday. If you Google Bravia complaints you could read for days of other disasters.
Summary: Disappointed in this order. Although the item arrived in good working order, I was forced to go to my local hardware store and spend $5 for screws for this TV. The product is suppose to come with 6 screws (2 different kinds). It only showed up with 3. These were loose in the box and not in the plastic bag, which I later found which I could tell was suppose to hold these screws.
Summary: I bought this TV to replace a monster tube-style tv. Great picture, and attractive unit, however, the audio quality is awful - sounds like a 1960's transistor radio. Be prepared to invest in a sound bar or home theater system. Also, only a single composite input is a limitation -- the WII has to share the input with my DirecTV receiver, which requires adding an A/B switch. Third, it will not play back AVI media files -- only MP4's.
