Summary: This Sony has an excellent picture the sound quality is good but not great. The speaker size limits its bass but it is better then the other flat screens I looked at. I've had a Panasonic Plasma tv for years and the picture on the Sony is just as good the sound with out a sound bar not so much. If you have a lot of equipment to plug in it has only 2 HDMI inputs.
Summary: Owned this model for just over one year when sound completely failed for no reason. Contacted customer service and tried all of their suggestions to no avail. They ultimately said that the sound card must have failed. Because it failed 2 months after warranty expired Sony rep politely advised that I was out of luck. Sony used to make quality products but that has changed. I won't be buying Sony anymore.
Summary: I ordered the product through Walmart.com and got it before I thought I would....GREAT! I plugged it in and watched it for 12 hours of the course of 3 days. The next morning, I find that I have a pixel in the center of the screen that is red ALL THE TIME. This was unacceptable to me, so I called SONY (I had already registered the machine) and described the problem. SONY informed me that this performance was acceptable and that they would not send me a new television.
Summary: Tremendous picture quality. best I hae ever seen especiallly since I have HDTV receptionb from Direct TV. I am still having a problem connecting my DVD player to the set but I'll contact the Sony help desk om Monday and we should figure it out. The istruction bookelt does not cover all the items you need to know other than that and the fact that securing the stand to the TV was awkward it is now safely attached.
Summary: I purchased this TV over less expensive brands of similar size, and over larger models for similar money because it is a Sony. It is an adequate size for the layout of my room. I've only had it for a week, but I like it very much. The features and the quality of the picture are outstanding. I gave it an excellent value rating because there was nothing between good and excellent, and it deserves a higher value rating than just good.
Summary: I love this TV. The picture quality is excellent & it was very easy to install. I do have to turn the volume up pretty high, but I live in a loft with very high ceilings & I think that's a big part of the issue. I was also impressed with how quickly it was shipped to me.
