Excerpt: We purchased this tv about 18 months ago. I love the picture quality. It is easy to see from every angle in the room. The sound quality is excellent. Our prwvious tv was only 19 inches so when we watched our first movie on this one it was amazing. Almost as food as going to the theater with the exception of the popcorn. My husband really likes the picture for sporting events. It is awesome to watch football and be able to see the blades of grass on the field.
Excerpt: I could echo the other reviews but I won't so I'll give a bit more info. Bright LCD flat screen ever seen. Has features to really set the screen/channels just the way you want it. Even has brightness setting.Has multiple connections for just about any media player you want/own. Also has the connection to hook up your pc to if you really want to go big screen while surfing the internet!Only thing I found to be worrisome was the base.
Excerpt: I recently upgraded to HDTV. AFter looking at several models, I chose this one. Based on past experience with the Sony brand, and the salespersons help, this model seemed best for my needs and viewing habits. The LCD gives me a better picture from side angles, however, in the mornings when the sunshines through my window, it leaves a bit to be desired. The set was easy to install and hook all other electronics to. The remote is easy to operate.
Excerpt: While researching flat-screen TVs, we discovered that plasma TVs couldn't be laid flat and most moving companies wouldn't insure them for that reason. Since we move frequently, we decided to go with the LCD screen. We were a little disappointed that we wouldn't be getting that awesome plasma picture quality, but as soon as we saw the Sony Bravia we were sold. The picture quality is excellent and the colors are vibrant.

Summary: The recent Consumer Reports (November 2007) issuye rates this TV as Best Buy for the 46 - 52 inch model range. The Consumer low-down is this: Excellent HD, Very Good FVF, Excellent Standard Definition, Very Good Sound Quality, Very Good Remote Control, Good Onscreen Menu, Good Viewing Angle. Overall, the TV gets a 76 out of 100 from CR.
Summary: This is my first experience with HDTV and wide screen. This 46" Sony TV is excellent with HD programs; with regular broadcasts, it is a bit muddy, but that is the fault of the signal, not the TV. I am very pleased with the overall quality of the set. I had the set professionally installed and set up, and I am sure glad I did: install and set up are not for amateurs like me; if anything ever happens, I will be hard pressed to reset things.
Summary: If you are still watching tv in standard definition then you're really missing out on all the free available HD content out there today. I pair my new Bravia with standard def. cable but can pick up a lot of unencrypted HD channels via the LCD tv's QAM tuner. There are a lot of choices out there for LCD tv technology but I've come to find that Sony tv's are superb.
Summary: I just got my 46V2500 a few days ago and the image quality really blows me away. When I went to the local store to compare models, the Bravia line always looked much better than the other makers. The design is nice and slender (I actually like the look of this model over the pricier XBR models)...the back of the TV has an easy layout for all the cables.
Summary: We looked at several TVs before "settling" on this one. In fact, at one time I had the 46XBR2 available for a comparable price. I thought this TV was a lot more compact (bottom-mounted speakers) and got this one. I am very pleased with the picture quality not just for HD but also for SD. I live in the Chicago area and the HD quality for WTTW is jaw-dropping.
