Summary: Love my 46 inch flat screen TV .. Very clear picture and easy set up. I bought the sony surround sound to give it a boost with volume. Highly recommend a sony TV, this is one of three I have in my home.
excellent source for hd content derived from broadcast and blu ray player...

Summary: ordered on a Saturday night and received delivery on a Friday which exceeded my expectations considering this was a standard delivery by freight truck (item originated from Washington state and I live in MN)...carton was secured on the truck as described by seller and carton was completely intact (good job ABF) - shipper moved up delivery time which I appreciated, too -overall, very pleased with tv..
Summary: Inasmuch as I purchased the Sony HD TV sight unseen I bear some of the responsibility for my dissatisfaction, but I have received no understanding or offers of relief from Sony's customer support site. The source of my complaint is the glossy black plastic band that borders the viewing area on both sides and the top (the bottom has a brushed metallic band) of the picture area.
Summary: Don't get me wrong the 46EX500 is a great television - - I have no complaints whatsoever. However, it replaced a 3-year old Sony 46" 60hz set (that was moved to another room) and I really do not see any difference. Now, perhaps if I put the two sets side-by-side for a comparison it would be obvious, I'm not sure. In any case, I suspect that this probably speaks as much for Sony quality as it does for the degree of marginal improvement of the move from 60hz to 120hz.
Summary: This is the second one of these TV's we purchased. One for a gift to our son last year and one this year for another son. They are the best value in this size I could find. Both sons and their families love them, the picture is great and they have had no problems.
