Summary: I bought this TV in the Fall of 2011 and here we are well into the 3D Flatscreen, and even beginning of the curved LED TV era, but I still have some of my friends telling me that this SONY Bravia is the best they've ever seen in a home environment. It's pretty thin, although a bit heavy, but I honestly sit back and stare in awe over the HD Quality for viewing anything from NFL Sunday ticket to an HD Movie or HBO series like Game of thrones.
Excerpt: I have always been a huge fan of Sony electronic products. My first walkman was a Sony! I always felt that if you had a good experience with a certain brand, why would you switch to something else. I have purchased at least 4 Sony TVs over the years. Their flatscreen TVs are second to none. The clarity is amazing; you feel like you are watching a movei at the theater or the game at the stadium. The picture is so life-like.
Summary: Have been using this TV every day (5-6 hour/day usage) for over a year and a half now. No problem at all. only thing you will notice is that: if you leave TV 100% power off (i turn off the main switch for TV, no stand by) and turn on again, the computer chip will start downloading updates to TV guide and other apps, so it takes a minute or two before it becomes fully operational. Which means you will experience delay and glitch during that time.
Summary: I have had this 60" for 6 months now and find it to be an excellent TV with great streaming abilities. The built in sound is only average, but paired with external speakers and you can get theater experience.
Summary: When looking for a TV I was looking for one that was LED. I was a little concerned with this one (prior to purchase) because it is edge lit led rather than back lit. All my fears were set aside after viewing it, the contrast and black levels are amazing. And the ambient light sensor makes the TV perfect in any light. The apps are also great. I already have Netflix on several devices connected to this tv. But I am a huge Slacker Radio and Hulu Plus fan.
Summary: **Update: I've had this television for less than 3 years and it took out on me last night!!!! I paid extra, a lot extra for this television because I was impressed with the picture quality but now I'm wishing I had bought something, anything other than Sony. I know Sony has good brand recognition and all but this is the last in a series of high dollar Sony audio/video equipment I've had die on me prematurely.
Summary: First off the shipping was amazing. The freight company called me the next day, and I had it 2 days later. Hand delivered, they helped me unbox it (this is important! the box was HUGE) and plug it in to make sure it worked. Thumbs up! The picture is stunning. So much sharper than my old RPTV. I do notice some color degradation at extreme angles on side viewing.. it dims a bit and the colors go off a little (red turns to pink-ish).
