Summary: basic tv with hdmi suport/integration for other sony stuff. no 3D and no wifi (wifi needs sony wifi stick.) internet stuff freezes the tv until loaded, very frustrating, and can crash. picture quality is good, strong signal, blacks ok but some glare when background light in room. sound is minimum quality but can be enhanced. help guide comprehensive, track id a bit of a gimmick (needs internet.) tv functions a bit slow, especially online features.
Summary: First, I saved a lot of money by buying thru Amazon. It arrived quickly and safely--I was originally concerned about this. The setup was easy. Please note that the HDMI on the side of the TV is #2 (somewhat illogical). The color and 120 Hz refresh rate is great. Love this TV!
Summary: Apparently no Sony Internet TV purchased outside the U.S., Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands has a registration code, or can be registered to Sony My Essentials. That means no TV purchased outside these few countries can even be set up to try to use Netflix (regardless of Netflix's licensing issues). Essentially, the only thing such an Internet TV can do is show YouTube clips on the screen, and absolutely nothing else.
Summary: This is by far the best TV I have ever owned! The size is perfect, the colors are rich, the blacks are deep, and the motion is sharp. Comparing it to my 40-inch Samsung this beauty blows it away in ever aspect. So much so that my wife (who hardly even watches TV) already wants to purchase a second Sony to replace the Samsung. If you are familiar with the menu of the Playstation 3 then you'll be right at home with this TV. The menu is very similar.
Summary: I was a little tentative about buying a TV online, but I decided to take the plunge and I'm very happy with the product. I don't see how the picture could get much better. It's stunning and there are enough variable settings to satisfy the pickiest viewer. I had read that some edgelit LED TVs have inconsistent backlighting, but that isn't evident here. The TV is unbelievably thin and lightweight too. I've hung framed prints that were heavier.
Summary: Very pleased with the 46in tv thus far. Since we are a ota/DVR/netflix household (no sat/cable) we really like the 24hr EPG. The main selling points for us were: EPG, picture quality (LED, contrast, ...), quality brand (Sony) for value price (Amazon). We upgraded from a rear projection tube model. We are now saving our money for a 55in model for the family room and this 46in unit will move to the bedroom.
Exellent value, very good picture quality, recommended.

Summary: I choose this tv, the Sony Bravia KDL-46EX520 from the picture quality I observed in the dealer showroom, it was as good overall as tvs costing 1/3 more, and better than 100Hz tvs, like the Samsung 46D5005 beside it on the showroom tv-wall. I placed myself about 10 feet from the tvs in the showroom, at the same distance I have to the tv in my living room, and compared the different brands pictures, and this Sony had more natural colours than the Samsungs, LGs and Philips...
Summary: I love the Sony brand. There products are far more better than any other electrioncs. This Sony TV looks great in the living room and big screen makes it easy to see. Great colors. easy to set up.
Summary: Overall, I'm happy with this TV. I wouldn't call myself a videophile, but the picture quality is quite good to my eyes. Although it's an edge lit LCD, I see no signs of flashlighting, clouding, etc. The black is quite consistant. I had been a bit concerned about buying an edge lit, but I'm glad I did. There aren't as many color controls as on some models, but it should be good enough for most. The audio is OK - nothing special. Bass isn't as strong as I'd like.
