Summary: I bought this TV for my husband at the end of November 2012 for Christmas 2012. Since I thought Sony had a reputation for being a good product, I chose not to purchase an extended warranty; my bad. The TV died yesterday, 9/16/14; it didn't even make it 2 full years.
Summary: I remember when this model first came out, and I saw Avatar playing on it at Best Buy. It was amazing. The color and resolution quality. Even when I play a 16-bit game from my computer looks great. It was easy to set up and gives us no problems. It's Sony after all!
Horizontal Line across the screen just after 7 months
16 December 2013
Summary: This is the worst purchase I have ever made. Just after 7 months, an horizontal line started to appear across the screen of this 60" TV. I called the warranty number. They walked me through a few steps, and they finally decided that they would send me a replacement.
Summary: This TV quit working a a few days short of one year. Sony has been giving us the run around, now part not available until 12/19. We reported problem on 11/24. Say the offered a replacement and told us this on 26th but we know they did not.
Summary: I purchased a Sony 46" less than 5 years. The TV was for use in my family room. The set is off all week since I work out of town. About the only use it gets is on a Sunday for a few hours. A few weeks ago when I went to watch it, the color was gone!!!!!
Summary: Purchased in January 2013. Enjoyed a great looking HDTV until last week. Would not turn on. The red standby light would blink 6 times. I tried all of the troubleshooting recommendations. Nothing would work. Called Sony rep. They said to FAX a "bill of sale" to them. That was last Friday, 4 days ago.
Summary: This TV was awesome except for the soap opera effect on movies and tv shows. I fixed it by turning off CineMotion and MotionFlow but the problem persisted in Netflix. It was so annoying. Everything looked like a bad soap opera.
Summary: I will keep this review short and to the point. This is a good TV if you can get it on sale. I purchased it from Amazon for $565. It does not have the picture quality of my Panasonic Viera Plasma but the Panasonic was 4 times the price. It does need calibrating.
Summary: The TV arrived in only a couple of days after being shipped. It was packed so that the TV was well protected. It is exactly as it was described by seller and contained all the needed items as well as paperwork.
