Summary: I purchased one for my mom's place when her sorry Samsung DLP broke. It's perfect! So perfect that I bought the exact same model when I moved out about 6 months later. Both are still solid, no issues, and I'm happy as a clam.
Summary: I've owned this TV for about two years now. I'll be honest: I bought it on sale at Walmart. At this point, the TV is not new technology, but it gets the job done. Since I purchased it, my wife and I have been quite happy with it. Right up until 2 weeks ago. The TV, overnight, developed a thin black line that goes horizontally across the screen. It's incredibly distracting, and basically makes the TV almost unusable.
Summary: I've had this tv since Jan 2010. So over a year now. Since day one the audio sometimes would cut out. I do have DVR and have only used DVR with this TV. And the only way to get the sound to come back on again would be to hit pause (on live tv) and unpause and it would come back. I've had 2 different DVR boxes, and I doubt that is the problem. I'm pretty sure its the HDMI ports on the TV.
Summary: When I first started using this TV I LOVED everything about it. Great HD picture, fast response, the works. But just 2 months after purchase, my audio started acting up. Skipping & cutting out. So I called Sony and they sent a software update. That seems to have worked. However, 9 months after purchase, when turning channels & switching between inputs, I get the "no input" screen. I tried all HDMI ports, even a different HDMI cable, no luck.
Summary: I have the sony bravia 37" also. the 46" is very nice and good for my living room Same quality very good I am pleased with the sony bravia. The only disturbing a bith is when I chaince channels it takes sometimes 5- 6 seconds I dont know iff this is normal. the 37" bravis dont take that long Nd the same story with the control its to long.
Summary: Don't have much to add other than it's a fantastic TV for the price. I've had mine for a little under 6 months now, and when I first brought it home I noticed only one main problem. There was some significant lag time before the TV would recognize a HDMI source. Not a huge deal, but it was definitely annoying. I looked online and saw this was a common problem but that Sony had addressed it with a firmware update.
Summary: I have always had a Sony TV for good reason. The quality is consistent throughout the brand. The picture is clear and bright. Set up was very easy even for a "technology challenged" person like me. My only regret, not buying a larger screen size.
