Sony BRAVIA KDL46BX420 46-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV, Black

Summary: I bought this Sony "used", the box had a minor corner caved-in, no damage to the television. The price was fantastic, the television is great! I have no reservations about making similar purchases in the future.
Summary: We were very disappointed that the TV had no clock, alarm or lighted remote. We use the alarm to wake up in the morning and to run at certain times while we're gone to make our condo look lived in. This is no longer an option for us. The remote is also poorly designed, placing the most often used controls at the bottom end. This makes it difficult to hold with all the weight at the top. However, the TV was easy to set up. We did it in about an hour.
Summary: I don't put a lot of stock in glowing reviews of brand new items since our last TV, a 42 inch Philips HDTV purchased locally, developed problems with the sound just past its warranty period. It was repaired at a cost of almost $300 and then developed the same sound problem 4 months later--again, just out of the warranty period. No help from Philips. This Sony is a replacement for the Philips (from which we will never buy another product from again).
Summary: Have this TV but not sure its a better picture clearer or vivid as the 40in bravia lcd I moved to the finished basement. Not a bad picture but not as clear as the 40in lcd. The sound is not good because the speakers are at the bottom of the TV. Although I have it hooked up to a surround sony stereo system you will need this to get quality sound. The older lcd had front speakers and it sounded better. 2 hdmi ports ok 3 would have been better for modern day games.
Summary: I recently purchased this from Amazon at the price of $488. It is my first "real" HDTV. Out of the box, setting this tv up was a piece of cake. The table-top base was very easy to assemble and the television slid over it with no issues. Screwing the tv to the base was also no issue whatsoever. After getting the tv setup, I hooked up a Verizon Fios box, a Blu-ray player and a regular dvd player to it. All very easy to get connected...self explanatory.
Summary: I just received my 46" Sony yesterday and so far it seems like a great product for the price that it is. As others have said, the sound quality isn't exactly the greatest as it doesn't go as loud as I'd like it to. But for my use, it's adequate. Picture quality is GREAT, even when watching things in Standard Definition. So far, I'd recommend this TV. If my opinion changes in the future [i.e. the TV goes bad], I'll be sure to update this post with my complaints.
Pros: Price. Bravia Sync means an automatic single remote for my Sony Blueray, Sony 5.1, and Sony TV, no need for codes. All buttons and menus work with one remote. Blueray has all the extras (Netflix, Hulu, etc) so no need for a full feature TV set.
Cons: Sound is almost non existent. Way too low and no definition at all. I get no bass.
Summary: My very first Sony TV and my first LCD (NOT LED) and I was concerned about viewing angle, black performance and brightness for a bright kitchen application. Considered 2011 plasma models from both Panasonic and Samsung but was amazingly turned-off by lots of manufacture defects and, of course, burn-in is still a reality despite improvements in plasma technology. So far Im impressed with the Sony, especially with the price like new $600 shipped for a 46".
