Sony TV and customer support is terrible. they only expect the lcd screens to last one year

Summary: purchased a sony bravia LCD and screen when out after two years, i spent $2600, called sony and they told me theres a one year warranty and theres nothing at all they will do to fix or inspect it.
Summary: Buying last year's model is a smart move. A current LED Bravia at 55" is $2,200 and the only difference is LED and 240Hz vs 120Hz/LCD. I can almost guarantee the BRAVIA LCD's look better than LED's from cheaper manufacturers.
Pros: Last year's model, so it's a deep discount It's a BRAVIA. Picture is insanely good
Cons: Not LED, but I can't tell a difference Refurbed, which isn't really a con, but the packaging is pretty bad from Newegg
Summary: I highly recommend this awesome TV! I could not be more pleased w/the picture and performance of this TV. I bought it (elsewhere for ten ninety nine, which was a crazy good deal at the time) when I moved into my new home in July of '11 and still absolutely love it.
Summary: I bought a Samsung DLP TV in 2008 and this Sony absolutely blows it away. The picture is awesome, and you won't find a better TV for the price. I'll never buy a Samsung again. The item shipped from Focus Camera. My contact there was a nice guy who was very helpful.
Avoid SONY at all cost ... too much $$$ for Chinese junk
7 December 2011
Summary: I paid $2,500 LCD that went bad due to an optical block. A problem that has brought them several class action lawsuits. AVOID Sony at all cost. It's too much for a piece of Chinese junk. Sony offered it to me and then change the price on me last minute. Sony is a sick Japanese company now.
Summary: Wasn't shopping for an LCD TV when I came across this model at Target on floor display close-out at $497. The picture quality is excellent. The sound from the built in speakers is adequate at best (hooked up through my 5.1 Dolby Surround system...much better).
Summary: Got the 2-month old demo at Pacific Sales for $750 after arguing with the wench manager of Best Buy Fullerton who wanted $1699 for the discontinued model. The difference between Best Buy and Pacific Sales is night-and-day. Got the same TV (albeit a 2-month-old demo)for less than half.
Summary: I've done countless hours of research for TV's, and it seems that everything changes with each year of new products coming out. What I've come to realize is that it is very hard to compare models from brand to brand or even within the same brand.
Summary: We purchased a Sony 55 inch Bravia almost five years ago and we have not had any problems whatsoever! The picture quality is great, good sound with and without extra amplification, nice controls, easy installation by myself, and it has been used a lot over the years. We highly recommend it!
Summary: Sony makes a great product in 99% of the times I have purchased from them. I would like to point out a very important fact about LCD TVs. The border makes a huge difference. I didn't notice this until I went into the store. This border is not super reflective like some of the other brands.
