Summary: I bought this TV in October of 2009 for over $2000. Recently, it has been showing black lines when I first turn it on. The lines last for about 30 minutes, then go away after the TV warms up. I contacted Sony and they said that this is a known problem with this model.
Summary: This is my third Sony Bravia TV and is located in the living room. An earlier model is in the bedroom and my first one was given to my son several years ago. This model has an excellent picture and great resolution.
Summary: Within 6 months of purchase TV won't power on. It was under warranty period and Sony sent an authorized tech to fix. The issue was with one of the boards that powered the unit. Once this was fixed for next 4 months it was Ok and then we started having the same problem.

Summary: In Nov of 09, after a lot of research, I finally decided to purchase Sony's new top of the line (at the time), a 52" LCD TV, model KDL-52XBR9-52 for almost $2,000. I received the unit and for almost a year I was very happy with it.
Summary: I have received countless compliments on the picture quality of this TV. It is great for watching anything in HD and blu-ray. The best TV I ever owned and the Internet capabilities are a big plus. The 240 MHz motion flow takes a little getting used to, but now I can't watch TV without it.
