absolutely stunning picture when all of the settings are custom, looks okay out of box...but custom settings are much better!

Summary: I currently own the KDL-46XBR7 and I can't say enough about the TV. I have it in a high end home theater setup and I'd put it up against any tv in comparable price range. There are so many settings that it's difficult to know what to set it too, but if you do your research on online forums and experiment, you'll really learn to see how realistic this TV can look.
Summary: I bought this TV a couple of years ago and I would buy again. The picture quality is excellent. The colors are vibrant! It has a crisp, clear picture! I still have it and am not wanting a 3-D TV just yet ..
Summary: I bought my first Sony 17" Trinitron CRT TV in 1976. I used it in college and it had fabulous color. My mom used it when I bought the first xbr series KV-20xbr in 1985. I moved up to several 27 and 32 Sony xbr series tvs over the years. In 2006, I bought the 40xbr6 LCD. Fabulous color and picture. But the real treat is the 46xbr8 which is a LED Triluminos tv. It is LED face mounted not LED edge lit.
Summary: The Tv was great. I liked it except for the floating speakers. I did not like to see the gap between the speakers and the tv edges. My solution: I bought the foam that was made for air conditioner ( gray color from Home Depot )and covered the gap, believe me, perfect match. Try it and you will like it.
Summary: the sony led tv as the best picture and the sound is the best for any 46 inch.the playstation works and looks great with this tv the remote will work with playstation with a HDMI wire which is a plus. this led tv with the floating speakers looks great on the wall.
Summary: First off, OneCall and Conway delivery were excellent to deal with. As someone stated before in a previous review, I received an email, then a follow-up call after purchasing from Amazon. No problems with shipping either. Now for the TV... Back in December of last year, I had purchased a Vizio (551XVT) from Costco. I had that TV for 3 months, then returned it because it had "shadowing" on the screen.
Summary: I did lots of research. Lots. I didn't realize the impact of "backlit-LED" on picture quality because, frankly, I don't know many people who have HDTV. SONY corporation is somewhat variable in their product lines, but their televisions have always been top-rated. I have owned five (5) TVs in my lifetime; three have been Sony. So saying, I remember going to a [big box retail store] and looking at other brands in the [upper level] viewing room.
Great TV much better than the latest tv! Awesome! Best Buy!

Summary: I bought this TV last February from one call and it arrived at my place without any dents or problems on the unit, eventhough I resides in the Philippines. The packaging was good and fast delivery from One Call. Want to comment on this TV, that the black and white colors on this lcd is stunning. It can compare or even surpass with the latest sony xbr model or latest samsung model. Have lots of input connection on it.
Summary: I purchased this as an upgrade. I had a 24 inch Sony CRT with which I was quite content. My social circle wasn't so happy; they tell me it was a relic (2001). Succumbing to peer pressure, I was on the hunt for a nice TV. I started out looking at the lower end Bravia lines, particularly the Z5100. In the end, I narrowed the choice down to Samsung UN46B8500 or the 46XBR8.
