Summary: I have to admit that I was suckered in on this TV from all the "wonderful" professional reviews. Well in their defense, the TV did work great for a little over a year and then suddenly developed colored vertical lines down the left side of the picture.
Summary: We purchased this TV and were very happy with it, then we started getting blue spots in the corners, which developed into blue rectangles in the lower corners, which got bigger and now are red rectangles in both lower corners that take up 1/3 of the screen - very annoying.
Summary: Love this TV. Absolutely beautiful. No ghosting at all. No 'screen door' effect seen on some LCDs. It's tough to pick a TV these days; you'll get a wide-range of reviews on any particular model depending on where you look.
40 inch HDTV LCD for under $2,000! excellent picture!!

Summary: We bought this set directly from the J&R store in downtown Manhattan for $1,799 plus sales tax. We wanted to be able to return it to the store in case we had problems. If you buy from Amazon, it might be difficult to return/exchange.
Summary: I purchased this TV from Amazon about a month ago. The price was good. It was delivered a couple of weeks after the order was placed. We don't have cable or satelite subscription, but we have good over-the-air reception via rabbit-ear antenna.
Buy It From a Store - Great Image But Questionable Reliability

Summary: I did a lot of research before I purchased this TV. It was the right combination of performance and design so when the price dropped on Amazon I did not hesititate to order it. Once it arrived, I basked in it's warm comforting glow as I threw broadcast content, dvd's and games it's way.
Summary: I have had the Bravia since the Fall of 2006. I have never seen a better picture, even on a plasma. They had all of the flat panels lined up side by side and the screen turned at a 45 degree angle.
Summary: I purchased this TV in Sept'06. The TV worked great. Unfortunately, there was a clicking noise from the TV. So, I called Sony and they asked to me to contact "Advanced Electronics" (in San Diego), one of their authorized service centers.
