Summary: Well, I was stumbling around the internet and did a quick search on the Sony KDF-60XS955. Reason, replaced my LogicTech Harmony One with a Touch, ugh another story. I purchased the Sony KDF-60XS955 ten years ago and also purchased the matching stand.
Summary: I bought this TV in 2005 and would have given it 5 stars at the time. The lamp needed to be replaced about a year ago and since the TV is on for hours at a time it was no great expense to buy a new one.
Summary: Although this Sony model is no longer available, anyone considering buying a used one should know that this television has an inherent defect with the Optical Block or Light Engine. Those of us who purchased this TV in 2005 are now getting deeply discounted replacements from Sony.
Summary: I have had my set for 5 years. I had to replace the original bulb after the first year and am still using the replacement. Before I get into the review let it be known Sony is being sued for knowingly selling us a defective set.
Summary: Light block goes bad after 2 to 3 years, Sony does nothing to help. Sony settled a class action suit on this tv but did not contact other existing customers of the problem and when the set goes bad Sony will not help.
Summary: I started looking for a big screen TV in 2004, but they were so expensive. In 2005 while buying DVD's I wanted to stroll thru the TV's and see the new technology. That's when I came across Sony's art work. Stylish frame with the side speakers was impressive.
Summary: Love the size, love the picture, price was fair... so far so good with the picture as I've heard there were a few problems in the past, but not 100% of everything is problem free. Overall great TV and worth evey penny.
Summary: The TV had a great picture, but what really surprised me was the quality of sound it produces. I have a big surround sound, but even without it, the tv sounds great. It was definately worth the money at the time (Jan 05), but by now there may be better deals.
