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.
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.
Summary: Took it out of the box, hooked up the satellite, pluged it in and had a perfect High Definition picture. I bought this one as it had been recommended by Consumers Digest and I saved about $400.00 on the purchase price at a retail location.
This Sony TV is ok, but there are better ones out there.

Excerpt: I would prefer a LED-backlit instead of this TV, but at the timeI bought it last year, LED-LCD tvs were still too expensive. After 5 months of use, there's black "burn-in" spot near the bottom of the screen already. It could be just a bad unit, but I'm not too pleased. Other than this little mishap, the overall TV is pretty decent, especially with high definition. The quality of high definition is amazing compared to standard definition.
Summary: the quality of the the picture is excellent. this is a great tv for the price (paid less than $850). i did considerable price comparison shopping and was very happy I was able to get a great quality large lcd tv for less than $850.
Summary: The good: Produces relatively deep black levels; accurate color in bright areas; solid dejudder processing in Standard mode; numerous picture controls; plenty of connectivity with four HDMI, two component-video and one PC input. The bad: Dark areas tinged bluish; must engage dejudder to enable antiblur; pedestrian design; less uniform screen. The bottom line: The commendable picture quality of Sony's entry-level 120Hz-equipped LCD makes it a very good value.
