Summary: I bought the TV for about 1000$, but not through Amazon. Let me first start with things I like 1) It has very good contrast. The black regions are very dark and this feature matters to how good a picture looks. 2) It has tons of features, including motion detection, a webcam etc. 3) It also has some 3D related features which I dont use (atleast right now) 4) The TV looks good and is pretty thin. The audio is also not bad for a thin TV like this one.
Summary: The TV is great, 3d/bluray is awesome. Wireless is absolutely useless (too slow, at least in my house). The main problem was stand. When TV is on stand it is tilted about 5 degrees, so upper right corner is about an inch higher then left one. I decided not to return the TV as the device itself is good. I fixed it a little bit by inserting a metal piece under one side, so it doesn't look awful. I should have bought this from Fry's where I could easily return the purchase.
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.
