Summary: Buyer take warning! I purchased a "used - good" condition. I am enjoying the TV because I can hook up my FX7 Sony camera and watch great video. Be aware that when it was shipped it was undoubtably the worst packing job I have ever seen from Amazon. Someone put the TV in the box, did not support the screen with the packing materials (broken and located on the backside of the set).
Summary: This TV is excellent! Very easy to use and setup. Features on this TV are extensive but not exhaustive. The Nextflix and Amazon steaming are great but you can't edit the que from the TV. There are plenty of other added features that are nice as well. However, loading times are long on this model (not a fault of internet speed, steaming is HQ and smooth). The type of files you can send to this TV from your computer or USB are limited.
Summary: After much research and debate, we decided to purchase the Sony Bravia Z KDL-46Z5100 46" 240 HZ LCD TV through Amazon. We went with Vann's. The TV arrived several days ahead of schedule (Vann's did their part) but we ended up having to wait an additional day for delivery because the Fed Ex driver obviously did not want to deliver this big, bulky box on a wet, extremely windy, stormy day.
Summary: This is a great TV. The picture quality is great right out of the box and even better after some adjustments. The low profile design, while not quite as slim as the newest offerings from Samsung, is still very slim without paying a huge premium. This TV has a bigger screen than my previous 42" Panasonic plasma but actually feels smaller in the room. The TV works well with my other Bravia components. CONS: This TV didn't get 5 stars mainly for nitpicky reasons.
Summary: Great picture. Sharpness and contrast head above the Sony 42" Bravia I had. Response to the remote is faster and more sensitive than the 42" too. Smart appearance, not wasted on cabinetry. Full features also. Would have liked to see additional 75ohm connections and more HDMI inputs. PIP would have been nice.
Summary: Make sure you have Fast DSL, or Cable ISP. I paid $300+ more for this model than Sony's lower line, so I could watch Netflix and other internet TV without connecting my laptop to it. Well, either this tv or my dsl is not fast enough, because it will pause every few minutes for the download to catch up before continuing with the video. Sometimes this causes the sound and video to run out-of-sync. The internet TV is limited to what sony allows.
After long search I settled for this. What a Great LCD

Summary: This was a great purchase and I would and have recommended this product to others. So far they are also very pleased with the unit. Most of the people I know also own a PS3 which allows you to control a the (ps3) blue ray player using the Bravia sync function. I only went with 4 stars b/c I've had Sony firmware revisions for TV that would randomly reboot the TV while in use. This is really more a reflection on Sony as a whole an not this particular model.
