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. Repair is higher cost than a new TV so Sony offer us a 15% discount from a Sony Store on a new purchase. That cost does not come close to in comparison to Amazon pricing.....so just forget that idea.
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.
Summary: I bought this TV in December of 2008 with an extended warranty. Late last year I noticed some discoloration on the screen when it was blank, in the form of a dirty brown smudge in the middle portion and two smaller smudges on each end of the screen. During hockey games they were very visible and made the ice look dirty in those locations. It got to the point that I began noticing it every time there was a light color on the screen.
Summary: I spent few months researching different LCD TVs and came to the conclusion to buy KDL-46Z4100/B. I even went to Best Buy to compare picture from the different manufactures. Sony and Samsung defiantly stood out from the rest. I decided to get Sony because of the non-reflective screen, slim profile and my trust in the brand name. I went ahead and ordered the TV through Amazon as they had the best price.
Summary: We bought this TV days after Christmas. Decided on a Sony because of the picture quality & reputation. I read several reviews - all good. Three weeks after we received the TV, green vertical lines appeared on the television. Called Sony & a brand new LCD panel was installed. Picture quality was back to normal & spectacular. Six weeks after the repair, the green lines are back! I believe this TV is a lemon & would not recommend a Sony to anyone.
Summary: TV WAS GREAT FOR 4 MONTHS THEN LCD PANEL DIED DEALING WITH SONY IS A LIVING NIGHTMARE THE COMPANY THAT DOES THERE SERVICES IS WONDERFUL SONY DOES NOT STAND BEHIND THERE PRODUCT ITS GOING ON 2 WEEKS STILL NO ANSWERS
Summary: I received the Sony kdl 46Z4100 and it worked great for 6 hours. The next evening I tried to turn it on and it was as dead as a doornail - no power no lights what-so-ever. Other devices plugged into the same power strip worked fine. The Sony rep was no help. The in home service technician could not come for a week. When he finally came, he wanted me to pay for the service call per instructions from the "Authorized Sony Serice Contractor.
