It would be like buying a car then blaming the manufacturer for the ...

Summary: I've had this TV with ZERO issues since 2008....but unlike 95% of the reviewers here I use high end cables and most importantly a quality surge protector, in this case a Monster rack style surge protector that shuts off equipment not only in power surges but in low voltage situations.
USED TO like Sony - Now would NEVER buy another Sony product!

Summary: We bought this TV 5 years ago for $2400. Worked well until 5 years and two months (right after extended warranty ended!) Now, like MANY many others (do a google search) we have distorted unwatchable picture, most likely due to T con board problems.
Summary: I bought this TV in 2008 for the upcoming Super Bowl. I'm still using it in 2014 with no problems. Great picture and sound. I hope that Sony still makes them this well when this needs to be replaced.
Summary: First lets start witht he positives. Very good picture, makes even normal non HD tv programing look good. Now the bad. Expensive, Lots and lots of T-Con board problems. You can no longer find new replacement parts for this tv.
Summary: We bought this TV through Amazon in May 2009. Thought it was a great TV until now. The TV went out...blank screen with the red Standby button on the bottom flashing when the power was on. We called Sony...that means a failure within the set and we need repair.
The TV went out just after the warranty expired. We did not purchase extended warranty

Summary: The TV was less then 2 years old when it died ! Call Sony and we set it up where we had a Qualified Sony repairman come out to evaluate the TV. Well the TV would not come on at all, so he charge me $100 and said it would cost $1800 dollars, and we would get a 30 day warranty with it.
