$120 sony wifi adaptor required and forget using a soundbar
Anthony Ettinger, Amazon

Summary: The internet doesn't even work anymore on the TV. I bought the $120 Sony wifi adaptor, but I'm not buying another one. As for the TV its ok. I had to disable the mpeg compression because I was getting "soap opera effect" on Netflix. Also, I just bought a soundbar for it, but putting the soundbar infront of the TV blocks the remote sensor. The stand it comes with is unable to raise the tv up at all.
Summary: This is my first ever flat screen TV and I soooooo loooooove it! It's huge, crisp and clear. I love all of its features. It contributes to my being more of a couch potato :). Only concern I have is the re-packing in its original box (which I kept for this purpose) when I move. When this TV was delivered it was unpacked and assembled by Amazon.
Summary: I have this TV in my second home and I don't use it that often. Bought it in April 2011; few days ago it died. The red power light is blinking 4 times, then pausing then again. I tried resetting it to no avail. When I turn it on I get SONY then nothing. I called Sony and what a waste of time; after several minutes of useless questions she said you have to send it for repairs. The thugs at the repair store want 75$ for diagnostic.. I'd rather throw it away.
Summary: Purchased unit in March 2012. I am presently waiting for my third refurbished unit, under warranty. Nothing but problems with this model TV. They just keep replacing defective units with defective units. Four TV's in twenty month!!! Should be minus five stars.
Summary: TV has a good picture if you spend a few months setting it up to get exactly what you want. When you turn it on it takes a minute or so to warm up. What am I, back in the 60's with an old tube set? The Rovi onscreen guide is so worthless and annoying that Sony should be ashamed of itself for putting this garbage on one of its tv's.
Summary: I am an older person who does not throw away a usable 27 inch tube TV. My daughter said, come on dad, splurge a little. So I did, and did not regret. Sony is the ultimate. Had sony stuff for most of my adult 78 years.
Summary: My Sony Bravia lasted 18 months before it started blacking out and needed to be turned off and back on in order to reset the picture. Sony 'offered' to replace their faulty TV with a 'refurbished' model for $600 + tax. I don't think so - try other brands - you won't get much sympathy from 'Sony customer support'. Disappointed that I paid $1200 and only got 18 months of use out of it - in fact, I'm still paying on it for another 6 months.
