Summary: this tv does everything i need it to do. i got a good deal on it but think i couldve saved a few hundred dollars by going with a cheaper model. i tried selling it at one point but couldnt let it go.
Summary: If you're interested in a lot of tech talk then read another review. We are not tech types, just ordinary citizens who wanted a TV with a terrific picture, was user friendly, had readily available and knowledgeable support people and internet so we could stream movies. This one does all that and we are delighted. We upgraded from a Visio and it's worth every penny.
Summary: Got this as I was upgrading from my Sony first generation HDTV (57'). Read reviews from many places about LCD TVs and finally I chose to buy this one. I am glad I did.. Many people overlook a fact that technical aspect of a product is just a piece of entire user experience. It is about a balance. While other brands such as Samsung offers TV better prices with equivalent specs, Sony made a product that is piece of a balance. I am a gamer and movie fan.
Summary: I actually bought a Samsung 55 inch smart TV and wasn't impressed. This Sony was cheaper and seemed to have the same amount of features. This TV has not disappointed and has actually impressed me beyond belief! Picture is amazing, as a newer HDTV should be. The screen does reflect light, so placement in front of a bank of windows would not be ideal, but should not be an issue in the correct setting.
Waited for my first Flat screen and it was worth it!

Summary: I debated which brand and model LCD TV I wanted to buy. I knew what features I wanted but didn't want to pay the outragous price to get them. I narrowed my selection down to Samsung, Sony and LG. I wanted the 240hz refresh rate and some sort of edge lit with dimming feature. After months of shopping and watching the prices I finally pulled the trigger and bought the Sony. I have owned a Sony rear projection TV for some time and live with the poor resolution.
