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!!!!! A call to Sony Customer Service proved to be no help since they only provided me with a link to reset the picture to factory specs.
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. Yesterday, Monday, Sony rep calls. They are sending me a new TV. Same size and model. Waiting now for email stating shipping and tracking number.
Summary: The original set was defective. I think the power supply went bad in less than two weeks. Amazon replaced the unit NEXT DAY. Very impressive. The replacement is working well. The picture is excellent and the internet connectivity is easy to set up and use.
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. I was quite shocked, as are a lot of other reviewers, that Sony had no fix for the problem.
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. The out of the box picture is not accurate but once its set up correctly its a really good picture.
Summary: nice tv... you need to read the reviews and the manual in full. everything works, youtube, etc. i got it super cheap and it came in two days using the free ground service. i am not tv expert or trained video technican. but with a little twinkering it is a nice set up all around...
Summary: I got this tv as an upgrade to a four year old 40" Toshiba. Here's my impressions: Setup - very easy, the instruction manual is pretty clear and the menus are intuitive. Remote - I really didn't use this after initial setup. Only issue was the arrow keys are a bit small and too close to other buttons, so it's easy to hit something else on accident. Connections - plenty of HDMI ports (4), and just about everything else.
Summary: We have had this TV for about a week now, and I have been very pleased with the performance! We did quite a bit of research on different brands before purchasing this model (KDL46EX645), and our last flat-screen was a Sony as well. Although I feel you do pay a bit more for a Sony name, the picture clarity is pretty amazing. Some things to note: 1. We calibrated the colors and settings per the CNET recommendations (see other reviews here on Amazon for exact settings). 2.
