Sony KDF-60XS955 still working after 10 years

John T Taylor, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • 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. Loved the TV, the picture was great, super impressed with the technology at the time. Yes, I suffered the failure of the Light Engine and it was replaced under Sony’s extended warranty for the Engine.

Good TV for the short term

Kevin, Amazon
6 November 2011
  • 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. Now I have found out that the blue that has been creeping along the bottom of the screen is due to an optical block issue that Sony has been aware of for quite some time.

Defective Sony TV

atfk9, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • 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. There have been several class action lawsuits as well as local small claims litigation. It appears that the Optical Block was defective from the introduction and is a $1500.00 repair.

Criminal design from a shameful company.

OleMissFan, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • 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. As good as this set looks on the outside, they all have a design flaw: The optical block or light engine assembly. This is a very expensive ($1400) piece to replace that was not designed correctly.

Problem with light block engine

Richard Alan Bullock, Amazon
5 January 2010
  • 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.

3 years and still going!

Rod M., Amazon
27 June 2008
  • 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. A matte front panel to protect the screen and reduce glare (not many with this feature), good for little kids that have to touch everything!

Great TV

Master Chief, Amazon
14 September 2006
  • 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.
