Summary: Having now owned this TV for a few years I can safely say that it suits my needs; Good quality HD picture Nice design I use it with an Onkyo AV Receiver so the sound is spot on - I have never listened to audio through the TV so I can't comment on the TV Audio quality.
Summary: Fantastic picture and great sound. Also coming from an ordinary old television, that probably has a lot to do with it. But out of the new HD sets I have seen, this is very impressive. Simple to operate as well. Even the sound from just the TV without the surround sound is great. Purchased sony because of the reputation and not disappointed.

Summary: This TV was bought after a fair bit of research online and in stores and i hasn't disappointed at all. Had this TV almost a year now and can say it was a fantastic buy. The 2oohz really shows when watching sport as there is no motion blur compared to my older LCD samsung. The picture is brilliant in HD and still watchable in SD also friends that have been round have said that the SD picture is far better than the SD on there cheaper TV's.
Summary: Short version...... Absolutely stunning TV. Picture quality - Outstanding Inbuilt Speakers - Excellect Setup - so so easy Works great with with my other Sony products - one remote controls all my Sony kit, one button also turns it all off. Slightly more than I wanted to pay - but glad I did.
Summary: If you are in any doubts about ordering this beast then lose them! This tv offers a great viewing experience - try 'Life on Earth' fantastic! I'm not prone to going on and on but I will,maybe I was lucky, so read other comments. I bought from Amazon (usual good service) delivered within 3 days set up very easy although I've still to work out how to use this DNLA thing (any help greatly appreciated) My only regret is that I could have bought it earlier, my cred.
Summary: Brilliant item, it has given us hours of entertainment. I shopped around for this model and Amazon came out the best. Delivery was really quick. Picture quality is great and HD is even better. Can't fault this TV at all.
