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.
Summary: 20 years ago SONY is great! not now!! my friends , relatives and i are upset with SONY products. SONY prducts have BAD BAD mainboards. dont waste your money. I had owned a dinosaur SONY tv for years. I have a KDL 46HX820 just over a year. its turns on for like 5 seconds then is shuts off. with 4 blinking lights after. we about to make a video for SONY.
Summary: Shopped around and looked at a lot of different brands. The picture is crisp, HD is great. Sound is descent for internal speakers. 3D is wild but the cost of the glasses is high. Not sure the difference with the cheaper or free glasses but these are good. Takes a little getting used. Sony, the one and ONLY!!!
Summary: I've had this TV for almost a year now and I could not be happier with it. It has spectacular quality, plenty of ports, and is extremely energy efficient. Everything about this TV is slick. It has a very slim profile and it looks amazing. It has many apps that are very useful and the interface is very user friendly. It syncs very well with other Sony products. I have a Sony 5.1 Surround Sound system and a PS3.
Summary: I love the widgets that are available on the Sony BRAVIA. Netflix, Youtube, Hulu, etc. on the big screen looks great. My only complaint is the delayed start-up when the TV is powered on (its like having to warmup the car in the winter -- a bother).
