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. As with any electronic unit I purchased an extended warranty which gave me a bit of peace of mind. Bottom line a great product and satisfied customer.
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!!
Summary: This TV has a beautiful picture and numerous inputs. Though it is not as thin as todays TV's it is still easily wall mounted. I got this new when it first came out and I'm not disappointed. It is not a 3D television and there are many nicer televisions out there now, but Sony does make some of the best TV's .
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. I checked the firmware and found the update would correct the audio dropouts. But it did not. Now, a year later, all of the HDMI ports have stopped working.
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. now the tv is not seeing any signal from any hdmi input devices.
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. The sound system is a disappointment, but that can easily be corrected by adding a sound bar. I highly recommend buying SONY Bravia.
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.
Summary: Have had this TV for about a year now and am still glad I made the purchase, but there are a few drawbacks. Definitely need surround sound, or you'll be dissatisfied with the sound quality. I've had a similar experience as a few others with the faint fading color in and out of HD programs, but you really have to have a good eye or be watching for longer than an hour to really notice.
