Summary: 4 stars for the Tv itself, ease of initial set up. The TV is sleek, the gorilla glass is great and the picture is great once you get all the adjustments for HD and widescreen set correctly. However, need to change that setting alot on the sony remote for old movies and shows that are not HD. Most new LCD's are similar in picture quality, especially if you adjust to vivid or photo settings for best backlighting and clarity.
Summary: I did a lot of research, I thought, before purchasing this unit. I had size limitations to fit into an existing cabinet so the newer slim bezel smart tvs in the 46 inch size were the largest I could go with. Note to anyone who purchases a tv online - OPEN THE BOX WHEN THEY DELIVER! The first unit that I received showed no signs on damage on the box. I excitedly moved my old set, and unpacked the new one only to find that the screen was badly cracked.
