Sony Bravia EX700 Series 60-inch LCD with LED back-lighting HDTV (KDL-60EX700)
10 December 2012
Summary: TV delivered on time and has been using for the last two years without any issues. Sony has a true rich colors scheme. Only one little negative is the speakers' sound is not that loud eventhough volume has been cranking up to maximum limit.
Summary: Shipping was great, they unpacked it and placed it where I said. Turned it on, looked great.... then the next day I noticed a thin red line ( about an eighth of an inch thickness) from top to bottom on the left of the screen. Would not go away, picture was fine despite the red line. After 3 days for hoping it would disappear, called Sony, they said to contact a local Sony authorized repair facility, which I did.
Summary: Happy with the TV overall - does have light blooming and clouding which is only noticeable when you look at the empty black screen with the room completely dark. Will be keeping it because ALL edge-lit LCD TVs have this problem to some extent and if you try to exchange it or buy a new brand/model you may end up getting a TV with worse blooming and clouding than what you already have.
Summary: The best deal on this TV is AMAZON. I LOVE THIS TV. The one and only thing that I am disappointed about is the sound, not sufficient enough if it is not connected to surround sound. Everything else is EXCEPTIONAL.
Summary: I purchased the KDL 60ex700 from Amazon in July of 2010. It was delievered via CEVA and their "white glove" installation of the TV and BDI Deploy Max 9649 stand exceeded my expectations. The CEVA folks actually built the stand in my home and indicated that was included in the "white glove" delivery. There is an abundance of material written about the picture/sound of this TV, so I will focus upon something else, the Internet capability.
