35-year Technology Consumer "8-tracks to 802.11", Amazon
30 November 2011
Summary: Television technology has advanced rapidly in the seven years since I purchased my first high-definition, flat-screen television. After paying the "early adopter premium" on a Sony Grand WEGA in 2004, I'm happy to report it is still running strong and has never had a single problem. The sustained long term performance of that television led me to Sony and the Bravia KDL40EX523 when the time to update the primary television in our house..
Summary: The picture on the Sony Bravia is good and the sound is better than on the TV that I use most of the time. My hairdresser has the Sony Bravia set up so customers can watch it. She's more tech savvy than I am, but she uses all of its bells and whistles and is very pleased with all of them. Sony makes good products. I'm never disappointed with them.
Summary: I read all the other reviews but I got this TV as a "no hassle warantee replacement" for another Sony that had a panel go out on me. The difference between my old one and this is that this one has Edge LED Backlight and internet connectivity. Because I read the previous reviews, I was prepared before the set arrived. I bought a CAT 7 LAN cable in case I had to hardwire it, but I wanted to try wireless first.
Summary: I got this TV because I wanted one with integrated (built-in) WiFi. I don't watch a whole lot of TV or even movies. 90% of the entertainment I watch is off the Internet, everything else is local stations I can get over the air. I could care less about the speakers and refresh rate. I use WPA2 AES on my WiFi network. I was eventually able to get this TV to connect but it was a pain. First, I had to enable SSID broadcasting.
Summary: I did alot of research before buying the Sony Bravia TV. The selling point was the WiFi for streamlining movies. I havent had any issues with the picture quality when viewing at a bit of an angle. My TV came with the picture setting at "streched." I set it to normal and its beautiful. The only reason I gave this TV a 4 star is because it was difficult to set up on the internet. In the instructions it should state, "Call Technical Support" to assist in setup.
Got TV for DLNA, NETFLIX, etc..., but these aren't very good

Summary: I got this TV to be hung on a wall for a workout, Workbench area. Since It is being hung I didn't really want to have boxes hanging from the TV on the floor etc... so for me it seemed the Sony EX523 would fit the bill: Wireless Network connection, DLNA (to connect to my media music, videos, pictures, etc...) and connection to Pandora, Netflix, et all. The good: 1. The TV picture was very nice, matched or exceeded the Samsung sets 2.
Summary: Me encanta este Televisor, la imagen es muy nítida, la conexión inalámbrica me permite conectarme a youtube y visualizar los videos con rapidez.El manual que muestra el TV es muy amigable, las funciones son fáciles de utilizar. Lo único que pude apreciar es que si quiero conectarme a una pagina web las letras salen muy pequeñas, de resto todo bien. lo recomiendo.
Summary: This television is laughably light and easy to carry and move around. The stand it comes with is excellent at sticking to whatever surface it is placed on. It's not exactly suction cups, but I put it on my recently-finished hardwood floors while unpacking and I had a hard time picking it up off the floor. Which is great! Less chance of it falling over if it ever gets bumped. The menus and options are very complete, and the built-in wi-fi is great.
Summary: What can I say, this TV is great. It's slim, and looks absolutely stunning. It turns on much faster than my 2009 Sony that I used to have. The menus are fairly clean and the internet connectivity is awesome! It updates it's own firmware! Anyways, It took some adjusting, but I'm using the VIVID preset with a few minor changes. There is no noticeable input lag which is awesome for anyone who plays games.
Love it.. look around forever - glad i bought this one

Summary: A bit pricey but all in all we love this TV. we were looking for something that fit our space constraint and wanted a good picture quality as well. This one allows us to have the common services we use (netflix and hulu and amazon vides) without having to have another box attached to it (was hoping to have an excuse to buy an appleTV but this does everything we need). The wifi allows to us to not have to run cables to the location. The picture is smooth and clear.
