Definitely not a choice I'd make again

T. Moon "Hot cars, hot guns and hot gear. Lif..., Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: Ive had this tv for about 2 years now and it's given me plenty of problems, considering how much I paid for it. I've had the audio dropouts, I've had the video dropouts, I've had random turnoffs, and pretty much any other problems you've read about here. I haven't had to replace any hardware yet and the issues have all been fixed by either a software update or a full factory reset, but I'm afraid to customize the options at all, just in case it's one of those options I'm...

Still Looking Good!

Michael J. Efseaff "Desert Rat", Amazon
25 October 2011
  • Summary: Have had this TV up and running now for about two years. The wife has to have the TV on shortly after she gets up in the morning and she leaves it on all the while she is home. The only time the TV ever gets turned off is when she is not home or when she retires for the night. The picture is still looking as super good as I got it to look after spending the 1st six months we had it playing with all the menu setting choices.

Bad "BM3" Motherboard

Flyguy, Amazon
29 March 2011
  • Summary: Save yourself the headache! The "BM3" motherboard is bad in these TVs. The software upgrade does not work and the replacement motherboard does not fix the problem either. BEWARE!!! The problem starts out as a simple little audio distortion and becomes progressively worst each time until the TV becomes just a fixture on the wall. If you have one of these TVs call Sony now and get a replacement before your warranty expires. Sony will fight the consumer "tooth and nail".

Can't Believe how bad this one is

O. Lunev "Da Bears!!!", Amazon
1 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this TV in October of 2009. In the first 4 months my HDMI outputs stopped working so the whole mother board had to be replaced. Now it broke again, a month after the warranty expired. I can't even turn the damn thing on! Amazon do not want to help me with this issue. Sony reps just care about the warranty, not the reputation.

Appearance of the TV Set

JAK, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: The TV set appearance was not good. It showed it was opened and something work was done inside (or perhaps parts exchanged). After opening it was NOT closed properly because the one side did not close fully and there was some gap. Also one screw in the gap area was missing.

Good TV with some nice features.

A. Romero, Amazon
17 May 2010
  • Summary: I have had this tv for about a month and i would have to say that i am pleased with my purchase. The presence sensor is a nice feature to the tv however, the angles the sensor uses are not very good at times especially when you are watching the tv from the sides and not directly in front of the set. At times while watching HD the sound will sputter by cutting off and on, for this i change the channel and come back to the sound restored.

I Love this TV

Spankda, Amazon
3 April 2010
  • Summary: This is the forth Sony TV I have purchased in the past 20 years and all four have been exceptional for both picture and sound quality. I have had this one for a little over a week now and the picture is amazing. I can't wait until DirecTV gets to the house this week to hook up the High Def. I may not leave the couch, EVER!

Sony BRAVIA VES 46inch HD TV Review

JJ, Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: This baby worked perfectly right out of the box. I didn't have to make any color adjustments at all. I was also impressed with the delivery arranged by Amazon. The delivery man stayed with me as we removed the set from the box, inspected it for damages, and made sure the set powered up. He even helped me move the set to the bedroom. This was a gift to my wife, and she loves the picture quality, as do I.

Watch out.......

Walton Rollins, Amazon
24 February 2010
  • Summary: Be warned. This TV has a problem with the motherboard. The USB patch they send you to correct the various issues, does not work. I purchased two of them and luckily was able to return them for a full refund. The sound drops out, the video signal drops out, the screen flashes and the patch made the picture blurry. I ended up purchasing two Samsung LED TV's which are just great for the same price I paid for the two Sony's.

My first HDTV :)

K. Paramkusham "someone's gonna", Amazon
11 February 2010
  • Summary: This is a great TV. I bought this as a bundle deal with PS3 slim a month ago and I am loving it so far. This is my first HDTV. Picture Quality is good.I got some calibration settings from CNET, after adjusting to those settings my TV got the best color,contrast. Now it is simply life like.You have a setting called 'theatre' where it smooths the picture. According to specifications Sony LCD 46 inches uses a max of 160 watts.
