Summary: I bought the 60" version of this TV and paid $3000 for it, and as soon as the warranty expired green vertical lines appeared all over the screen. Sony basically said tough luck they will give me 15% off another TV. So Im guessing this is the norm for the company. Don't buy Sony.
Summary: TVs are different now. They're bigger, crisper, brighter...not the TVs we grew up with. Also, apparently, they're not the long-term purchases they once were. My TV now has a vertical thin green line about 6 inches from the right edge. I Googled "sony bravia green line on screen." Not good news.
Summary: When we first bought this television we were absolutely in love with it. However, around the time our set turned 18 months old, the television had to be turned on for 10-15 minutes before the picture would appear.
Summary: Without a doubt, this Sony KDL46W3000 is the worst TV set I have ever owned. The picture, which I saw demonstrated in several stores on a HD link, is abysmal using any other input but HD. Surely Sony should have realized that only some broadcasts are in HD and most other sources of input are not.
Summary: We bought this product after a couple of weeks of research and thinking. We needed a TV for our niche in the family room. Since we already have a niche, several recommended we buy a DLP so you'll get a bigger screen TV for the same or lower price.
Summary: I have a few LCD TV's and this one blows me away! I spent quite a long time reviewing different LCD units from different magazines, companies, and online personal reviews, and I found that besides the top Sony Bravia, this one is by far my best purchase I have had in a long time!
Summary: I'll describe the TV and the delivery in two separate paragraphs. The rating I have given is for the TV only. The Sony 46W3000 lives up to every expectation. The colors and resolution are spectacular. I haven't found a flaw of any kind (I used to design television monitors for warbirds).

Summary: The Sony KDL 46W3000 is perfection when watching true HD programming or Blu-Ray disks. Installation is simple and set up is flawless. Calibration is a bit more difficult (unless you pay for professional calibration). Standard picture mode works well for most all programming.
Summary: Researched 46" TV's online and in stores and found the Sony Bravia 46" W3000 series had the best features and picture for the price. Even over higher priced TV's, the picture is awesome. Super sharp picture, true black colors, no blur and great sound.
Summary: I was deciding between this Sony and the Samsung 4671F 120HZ. Based on viewing both side by side in a store, the Sony seemed to have more detail, especially in darker areas. The Samsung is wider because of a wider bezel frame, which gives it an awkward look compared with the Sony.
