Excerpt: The first stylish feature you will notice about the Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR5 flat panel television is the sleek, high-gloss black bevel that seems to float around the clear acrylic backing, lined with chrome accents. The KDL-46XBR5 was one of Sony's first true 1080p flat-panel full HD televisions, capable of receiving over-the-air HD stations, with a 10-bit 16:9 (1920 x 1080) resolution panel and was the first Sony Bravia flat panel that introduced the 120Hz (Hertz)...
Excerpt: Worst Television I ever own, and I have had a few in my 71 years. Picture was terrible right from the start, not clear at all for a Sony, I called sony and after they had me check in the menu, they finally came up with the firmware was outdated. I purchase this TV in the middle of December 2009 as a Christmas gift for the family, the build date on the back of the television was October 2009 and I said it was just built how can it be outdated.

Excerpt: This is by far the best tv we've ever purchased!! The format is easy, the sound wonderful and the color and picture is just so clear!!! We had no problems buying this from Bill Smith, the service contract that comes with it is great, though we did buy the extended just in case, well worth the money!! I can't imagine ever getting another tv, the whole family just loves it!!!!
Excerpt: The picture is clear. There is however an issue with glare from a distance. The sound is crisp. I was able to enjoy all sporting events and was able to hear the television from anywhere in my house. Watching DVDs was awesome. The surround sound in the movies were ampliphied by the television.
Excerpt: This HD TV is the best that i have seen and I did a lot of shopping! The 1080 is the best you can get and the color adjustments is many,I can fine tune it to get just what i am looking for.I have Directv HD and the picture just jumps out at you. The xbr5 is Sony's best and I am just BLOWN away by the quality of this TV. If you want the best price call CRUTCHFIELD 1-800-555-8211. I saved about 500.00 Dollars when i bought mine,and i searched all local stores in my area.
If the XBR5 is anything like the XBR4, it's fantastic

Excerpt: We bought the 46"XBR4 with 120hz refresh rate and true 1080p HD. Depending on the quality of the broadcast, it up-converts to beautiful, crisp and clear images. Also, the sound with the XBR line can't be beat.
Summary: SONY makes fine TV's. don't know if it's this unit, or this model in general, but when playing blu ray at 24p, there's blurry halo around a moving subject, not all the time, not with every moving subject, but with every movie.
