Excerpt: After having an old boxy regular big screen television, i realized it was time to upgrade my family to a new lcd television. After a lot of time researching televisions based on price and quality, i bought this sony bravia which came with a free ps3 and some games at best buy for around 1000 and i am very satisfied with the television. The high definition television has a resolution of 1080p with 120 hz refresh rate. The television has many hdmi ports and has...
Excerpt: My step dad recently bought this TV and I am the main person to use it. First off, make sure the TV is the right size of the room, since this is a 46" TV, it should be for about a 6 foot deep room, so go larger if you have further viewing distances. Overall though, this TV is beautiful. Everything is clear, crisp, and is amazing with HD and Blu-ray feeding it signal. It has tons of inputs, so there's never a need to have to switch cables in the back of it, and it...
Summary: I bought ths tv cause love Sony. Even though I read all the negative revies I thought the guys were difficult...but now Iknow. Th etv is difficult to get to work with the bravia sync home theater.The input on HDMI is lost so often that it displays no signal...yes i have latest firmware.So do not buy..Support tells me to get it serviced....WOW thats an easy answer when warranty is finished.
Summary: The television generally has a nice picture... when it works. There is some distortion with moving images but it's not too bad. I can confirm the audio cut outs. It seems to occur randomly and the only remedy I found is to either turn the TV off and back on again, or switch channels. This started soon after it was purchased. The biggest problem I encountered was a growing problem with vertical color streaks and after images on the screen.
Summary: I purchased this TV 2 years ago, and all of a sudden I started seeing colored vertical lines on the display and frozen images. This has continued to the point where the lines have consumed the entire screen, and the picture is no longer visible. I called Sony and since it is past the 1 year warranty period, it is considered my problem. I've lost faith in Sony being a "quality" brand and won't be buying any more products from them again.
Summary: I really did love this TV until a few weeks ago. At just under 2 years old, the LCD panel went. Vertical lines running through the picture. Estimate for repair is $1863, which is significantly more than I paid for it new, and a whole lot more than what it could be purchased for today. Extended warranties are generally bad investments, but if you insist on getting this TV, you ought to think about getting the extra warranty coverage.
Summary: Bought this item June 9th 2009, at first, its great, picture quality is very nice. But vertical red / blue lines started happening early 2011, at first, I can switch channels and get rid of the lines / bars, but in March, the lines became very persistent. Called Sony, they say its out of 1 year manufacture warranty. They did offer some useless suggestions: switch channels, turn on / off, switch input devices, plug / unplug etc.. Nothing worked!
Summary: I got this TV in December of 2009, and have been now using it for a year. Many people here have discussed "sound issues" with their TVs, going in and out, or not coming on at all. I have never experienced any of these issues. The sound from my TV has been great, and I am pretty surprised it gets that kind of sound coming out of its speakers. My TV did (as I believe all of them originally did) suffer from the dreaded Red Flashing.
Summary: This is my first time purchasing a flat screen TV and I spent hours researching try to get the most for the money. I finally decided on the SONY. The company I bought it from upgraded me to the 2011 ex5000 Sony Bravia at no charge. So far so good. I am very happy with the picture and sound quality of the Sony. Keep the 2011 Bravia on your list. Solid product at a great price. You will get more for your money.
Summary: I got this TV about 14 months ago and loved it when I got it all set up. TV did great for about a year. I had a lot of problems with my DVR using it. I have Time Warner cable and they use Motorola DVR's. When you fast forward the screen goes green and then black and you have to turn off the TV to get the picture back. I switched out the DVR several times and everntually got their newer model and it was brand new out of the box.
