Summary: being a former huge Sony fan - I was happy to buy this TV. It worked great for about 2 years and then the picture died. Just turned itself off in the middle of watching TV. Then Sony tells me there is a 1 year warranty on this and there is nothing they can do about it - except - get the TV repaired - which I have to pay for. Outrageous. I will never buy another SONY again. Not for poor build quality and crappy service.
Summary: I bought a Sony 55" Bravia 3 years ago. Within 3 months the first HDMI connection went bad. About 9 months later, the 2nd one failed as well. This year, the sound went out, and I only receive in 480, no longer hi def. Sony is not the company or product it once was. Repairs to mine will be upwards of 720.00, almost the price of a new unit. Try LG or Samsung. Yes, the Sony picture is great, when it works.
Summary: Quick and professional delivery by CEVA. Great picture. But, many items were not as expected. Could not get SKYPE to work. Sony tech support said I needed to upgrade the firmware, but I could never get that to work. Edge lights sometimes showed up along the top, like a rope light. Picture would frequently flash on and off for no reason.
