Summary: This TV broke less than 2 years after I bought it. Sony makes junk electronics and I should've know better. Do yourself a favor, buy a Samsung or LG. Hell even my old bedroom Vizio has lasted WAY longer than this thing
Good TV, but terrible customer service and support

Summary: I bought the TV at the end of February. Last Sunday, March 18th, the screen went bust - there is a large band that mirrors the top of the screen with a bunch of small lines above it. The screen is unusable.
Summary: A nice quality TV in the usual Sony tradition. Plenty of ports and settings to satisfy most everyone. Easy hookups to audio and satellite sources. However...many people like myself bought it for the internet, Skype and web content which are pathetic.
Summary: This Sony KDL46ex523 46 inch TV works as advertised. The Internet hookup works fine once I figured out the intermittent signal interruptions were from my router system. I wired directly from my router with an ethernet cable to operate without interruption. I've had the Sony for 3 months.
SPEAKERS/MOTHER BOARD HAD TO BE REPLACED AFTER A YEAR

Summary: I usually dont review the products I buy, but b/cause this is an expensive one, I decided to write. We purchased this 46inch tv 1 year ago... Approx. 9 mths after, we noticed the sound began to develop problems. On occasion we'd notice a crackly/distortion. then it would stop.
Summary: The TV worked great for the first four months, but now it has red and green vertical lines that won't go away, over every channel and all on screen displays. It destroys the viewing experience and looking online it appears to be the result of a manufacturing defect.
Summary: If you are buying this Sony only for its over the air or cable signal, it is probably a good buy. If you are interested in the Internet apps, look elsewhere. *This set has no app for Internet Radio streaming. The advertised NPR app accesses a number of podcasts from NPR stations, but no streaming.
Summary: PRO - After looking at Samsung, LG, Vizio sets we chose the Sony 46EX523. So far it has exceeded our expectations. It replaces an 8 year old 34" Sony CRT HDTV. As a film maker I am critical of picture quality, contrast, definition in blacks, and color rendition which are all excellent.
