SONY has been the worst for at least last 10 years

Summary: Lost picture and sound after 4 years using it less than 10 hours per week. Paid $900 for it and now the shop (after charging me $55) tells me it costs more than the value of TV to fix it and have to pay recycling fee to get rid of it.
Summary: I bought this tv 15 months ago and I started to have problems with it right after the 12 month. I did not buy extended warranty trusting a name like SONY. I have researched a lot and apparently all the motherboards in this model can and go wrong eventually. My tv just won't turn on out of sudden.
Summary: Lets start off with the faults: 1. Sound randomly starts to stutter and drops out. Then randomly stutters and comes back in. Sony repaired 3 times each time it came back the same way it was sent off..with random audio drop outs. 2. HD picture quality is ok. SD picture quality is flat our horrible.
Summary: I originally purchased a 32 inch Sony Bravia HDTV, and then I saw this one on sale here... so I purchased it without hesitation. $50 more and I could get a 40 inch! Great TV... can't believe it was so inexpensive. No freeze frames, good color. Very happy.
Summary: The picture of this TV is OK. The audio is really bad. 1. random crackling static 2. tinny speakers 3. rca audio jacks will not work while using hdmi for video only, even though manual says it should work.
Summary: I decided to rate this TV after I saw another Sony widescreen model at my friend's and realized how mine is SO much better. First, if offers plenty of HDMI outlets (for my DirecTV, Roku/Netflix, and Blu-Ray DVD) on both the back and side. The image quality hardly needed any tweaks out of the box.
