Summary: Wonderful product. I check out many similar units and this one was a home run. As I have never ordered a product this large from Amazon and usually purchased in a store....this was a most pleasant experience.
Summary: The purchasing of this tv has made my family happier I believe. This tv is so nice. The HD qualities are way passed my expectations. So far it has given me no problems. I am satisfied with my purchase since April 2010. Thanks Amazon!!
Great picture, continued issues with HDMI (and sound)
17 March 2012
Summary: I haven't noticed any issues with the picture or red flashing, but the HDMI problems are very, very real. Right from the start I experienced the audio dropping out and just completely muting intermittently with HDMI connections. Usually rebooting the TV would resolve this, at least temporarily.
Summary: kdl52v5100. First off the TV worked fine for the first year of its life. after the warranty expired problems started occuring. sound started cutting in and out for no apparent reason. found update patch on sony website. downloaded and fixed that problem.
Summary: You can't go wrong with the four letters, SONY. Excellent picture, easy setup, user friendly menu and enough ports to connect accessories. Amazon beat local prices, free delivery and excellent customer service.
Summary: I use this set as a monitor and my AVR does the audio. The picture is clear and bright. While it doesn't have the internet connection features of more expensive models, I use a Wii to provide internet content so it doesn't matter. Well worth the money.
