Summary: We absolutely love this TV (have 2 of them, both 55 inch) In the living area with a lot of light, the picture is great during the day and at night at theatre time. The auto intensity adjustment just works great.
Summary: Got the XBR55HX929 and just love the screen's output. The colors are vibrant, sound is great, without any soundbar, or amplifier. I found the remote's joystick a little annoying are the up/down and left/right arrows are sunken below the surrounding buttons and you tend to hit the outside buttons...
Summary: I work in the industry, and look at carefully calibrated, reference-quality monitors all day. So I knew I couldn't get the Wal-Mart special for home and be happy with it. This one was a bit pricey, but Sound and Vision magazine rated it extremely well, and I was not disappointed in any way.
Summary: I bought a 60 inch samsung 8000 series tv, ruturned it and got this one instead. This sony bravia blows all the other tv out of the water. The samsung was brighter but the color on this sony bravia was richer and fuller. Motion on it was superb compared to the samsung.
I have learned to take the reviews with a grain of salt....and some nuts

Summary: I bought on a Sunday and had by Wednesday....on the opposite coast. I also ordered a Sony home theatre and wall bracket...all arrived within 3 days. I think it took me 10 minutes after I hung the tv on the wall to hook everything up to it.
Summary: I'm not going to write a lengthy review, as others have covered that pretty well. The degrading picture quality when viewed at an angle issue some have mentioned is not nearly as bad as I would have thought by the reviews I read. In fact, I can honestly say I barely notice it. I simply love this tv!
Summary: I bought the 55VT30 plasma back in may 2011. I never liked the picture, after actually wasting money on calibration, and not being happy with it, I bought this tv from amazon.com 7-10 days ago. Right out of the box the PQ is significantly better.
Summary: Something seems to be amiss here with these reviews. I almost passed on this set after reading some of the posts. Then I came to my senses and purchased it. This TV has the best picture I have EVER seen, period.
Summary: Read Amazon's Price Match Policy on TVs. If you find a lower price from the retailers on their list they will match it. You will still get the benefit of Amazon's 30 day return policy and if you don't like the TV you get they even pay for the return shipping.
