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.
Summary: This TV completely exceeds any expectations I ever had for a TV. I got this TV for an amazing price during Black Friday... basically half price... $1300 off regular price. The Sony Smart features are spectacular. If you've used a Playstation 3, the interface is almost exactly the same.
Summary: I was amazed after seeing the picture, Black is BLACK and the color palate for all the others is stunning.. Bought this on Black friday (1am) and got one hell of a deal. I had been looking at a 3D Vizio 55" for months hoping it would hit the $1200 range.
Summary: I bought the Samsung PN59D8000 a few weeks ago from Amazon.com, and while I was pleased with the picture, it had some horrible buzzing issues and I returned it. Since that tv was supposed to be the best plasma Samsung had to offer, it was quite disappointing.
Summary: I've had the TV for about a month. I still need to take the time to tweak the colors and adjust for the "soap opera" effect I've read about but I'm very happy with the TV. The main reason I wanted a TV was to switch from LCD to LED to reduce the heat. This TV seemed like a great value.
Amazing picture from an amazing TV! Sony does it best!

Summary: I bought this TV in November 2011 and cannot think of anything negative to say about it! I picked it up for around $1,850 (it is cheaper now!) and got a great deal. I have the TV wall mounted in my basement with a Samsung 5.1 surround sound system installed.
