Summary: I have owned this TV for 4 months and as far as picture and sound, I have very pleased. Even non HD shows look pretty good (many models don't). As far as some fo the interent section, I give it a 2.5 out of 5. You can easily connect it but the choices are only fair and you can't add additional features nor does it seem that sony plans on providing additional content.
Summary: I bought this unit for our bedroom. Good size and wanted higher definition picture. Love every thing about it except that network features require a special Sony adapter for wireless network connection. Even with the additional cost for adapter, this set is a good value. Picture compares nicely with a larger plasma set we have in the living room.
Summary: I was originally disappointed in this LED HDTV when it first arrived. The lower left corner had an excess of light that was very distracting in any scene with black or dark grey levels. I expected more from a Sony. However, a call into Sony for warranty rectified the situation. They treated me well and after I answered a few questions and walked through a diagnosis, they called a local service in our area.
Summary: I bought this one because I do not need 3D. The price is a bargain and the TV was delivered on time with schedule. Overall the TV works as expected; however, Sony should lower the cost of the USB wireless LAN adapter.
Summary: The TV & picture is great. I had the Direct TV Satellite Tech hook up the box upgrade to HD. The problem was when I hooked up my DVD player using the component connection (Green, Blue Red)NEW cables. The DVD color was all red. The Direct TV Tech said he never seen that before. Now troubles shoot.........
Summary: The television is everything I expected it to be. Some times there are glitches which I believe are associated with the cable transmission rather than the TV. After a few days, the HD picture started breaking up on some channels. We called Warner Cable and they had a repairman out within hours. He replaced a connection and the problem has gone away. The sound is very good and the picture is very good. Extreme ease of use. A very competative price.
Summary: I purchased this 46 inch tv to replace a 6-7 year old 42 inch Sony LCD tv. There is a small improvement from one to the other, as far as pictures go. The way I understand it, the more significant improvement is with the thickness of the tv (or lack thereof) and the long-life of LEDs vs. regular lamps. The sound quality of my new tv is not as good as my old one, perhaps because of the thinness of the tv and speakers.
Summary: I have been researching TVs for the past 2 months and finally decided to get this TV. I've had this TV for a week now and I'm very happy with this purchase. The way our living room is configured, I only have 2 options on where to place my TV. Both of those places are near windows. With the matte screen on this bad boy, glare is not an issue. No problem watching TV at in the middle of the day or late at night.
Great picture, good sound, but disregard as an internet-ready TV

Summary: I would evaluate the TV in two parts, the first being the quality of the hardware (picture, sound , aesthetics), and 2nd everything else: Picture & sound: IMHO Sony still has the best picture quality among major manufacturers, and this TV has the most natural-looking colors & best blacks i've seen, at least when I was comparing sets in the store.
