Extremely happy with this after 1-1/2 years

  • 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. I think what first struck me about it was how black the black is on this TV; I can literally not tell any difference between the black backgrounds of some shows/movies vs the actual frame of the TV.

  • Excerpt: The sony tv that I have in my house has a very good picture, with bright colors and a vivid picture.  But, it is somewhat difficult to set up as far as the initial set up.  The sound is very clear and has a broad variety of volume.  The remote has many cool features that helps me navigate throughout all the channels.  It is a very reliable tv, that we have never once had a problem with.  The price was very reasonable for the quality tv that we bought.

Giant screen that makes for great at home daily usage

  • Excerpt: Have had this tv for a week and am enjoying it for everyday tv usage, along with Blu-Ray and standard DVD. Huge 55 inch screen makes it feel very adequate from about 10 feet away. Happy with the Sony brand, and the price I got on the tv was incredible...paid $892 plus taxes in NY. Went from a 52 inch tv to a 55 inch Sony and I'm pleased with this so far.

Be very wary of buying this model.

  • Excerpt: We bought the Sony Bravia Flatscreen TV last week as a replacement for our other television that was fried by a power surge during a thunderstorm.  Personally, I think it SUCKS!!!!!  The remote control is cumbersome and hard to use.  The television keeps turning itself on and off and does not respond for more than a minute to the remote control signals  I tried for 10 minutes to get the DVR to play on the television without avail.

Great TV

GT, Amazon

  • 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. The only issue I had was the delivery company they hired sent me a postcard to set up a delivery date instead of calling me, so I suggest aggressively pursuing them the day it ships to make sure there are no...

Avoid SONY at all cost ... too much $$$ for Chinese junk

LessonsLearned, Amazon
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. It is no longer the Sony that I knew with their Walkman. This TV is blurry. It is made out of cheap plastic. The volumn is terrible. Pictures are slow to come on.

A Steal Of A Deal

ShowMeStateMan, Amazon
26 November 2011
  • 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). Would highly recommend this Sony model to anyone that is looking in the 55" size class.

Best bang for the buck if you can find it!

  • 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. Bought 5-year extended warranty for $170, so out the door with tax, warranty, and free delivery (although we packed in our RAV-4) for less than a grand out the door.

Great Picture and Input offering

Dylan's Dad, Amazon
9 November 2011
  • 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. What you have to do is figure out what type of inputs you need and what type of setting your TV will be in and go from there.

Dependable and Great Picture!

J. Campbell "Northwoods Artist", Amazon

  • 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!
