Summary: Worked fine for couple of years. Since two months started to get 3 blinking red light and the TV will not come on. This is a recurring problem on a lot of the Sony TV's as read in the reviews and postings. Did not expect a expensive a Tv to go out on me this fast. It would cost $400-$500 to get it fixed so it is going to sit as a useless item. Not sure why Sony has not issued a recall on this product line with so many people posting o f similar problems.
Summary: I got this TV 2 years and ago and I have gotten nothing but problems. While esthetically the TV is magnificent, it had an issue since day one related to the power. The TV suddenly and repeatedly turned out itself with no apparent reason despite of the power saving configuration. Now it finally just died on me, it's not even turning on anymore.
Summary: The picture is fabulous, truly "wow". So far (3 weeks) no sign of what seems to plague some of these TV's, the "lines" that appear after a while. We did buy an extended warranty in case our unit needs to be replaced, because this TV is worth it! I do wish there were more instruction on how to connect to the internet. We are sort of inching along in getting this capability to work. I would recommend this TV to anyone, it is magnificent.
Summary: I have owned this TV for almost 2 years to the day when it decided to die on me. The TV will power on for a few seconds and then the standby light will blink 4 times and won't power on again. I have tried everything to try and get it up and running again and it just doesn't want to work. I called the sony repairman and he told me that the LCD/LED panel went bad and that it would be cheaper to purchase a new TV rather then fixing it.
Summary: GREAT picture on this TV. However, after just two years, I am having the same pier supply issues that others have mentioned. I purchased (and paid extra for) a SONY product expecting to get quality stuff. I am disappointed.
near perfect quality picture, great w/ blue-ray, works again and again...

Summary: I absoultely love this TV. I previously had purchased a XBR-4 and then decided to upgrade to this one a few years later. My wife and I watch this tv every night and I can't speak highly enough about the picture quality. I have it running with my PS3, Onkyo receiver, Monter Power conditioner, and Klipsch RF-82 II speakers. This tv compliments all of the other components and continues to impress over and over again when used with Blue-ray.
Summary: My husband and I bought Sony BRAVIA KDL46HX820 for $1393.00. First shipment we received within 2 months, we saw green strips along the bottom of the TV. Thank god Amazon was kind enough to replace it with no shipping charge. Fast forward 14 months later, one day the TV was playing fine then the system shut down with 4 blinking lights. We called Sony, which they were no help referred us to an authorized service center.
