Sony products are unreliable!

Lynn Kilpatrick, Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this TV for my husband at the end of November 2012 for Christmas 2012. Since I thought Sony had a reputation for being a good product, I chose not to purchase an extended warranty; my bad. The TV died yesterday, 9/16/14; it didn't even make it 2 full years. My husband tried to get assistance from Sony over the phone after having exhausted all of Sony on-line's suggestions and got the run around.

And the authorized Sony repair service man told me to CHANGE THE TV because the screen has gone bad. So

  • Summary: Got this TV delivered in Feb 2013, and by July 2014 I see black horizontal lines on the TV. Called Sony customer care and since i didnt purchase extended warranty they can't do anything. And the authorized Sony repair service man told me to CHANGE THE TV because the screen has gone bad. So, I guess I am stuck with this piece of crap.

  • Summary: I'd just like to second all the other recent reviews for this product: The backlight failed just after the 12 month mark. I'm dealing with extended warranty support now.

Horrible Customer Service for a defective product

S. Hart, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased my KDL50EX645 directly from SONY for $999. I had it for 15 months (3 months past warranty) and then the power supply board burned out. The TV was completely dead. Since it was 3 month past, SONY would do NOTHING for me. I got the run around for a month just trying to figure out how to get it repaired. Even though it was a defective part, and even thought I spent a grand on their product, they wouldn't offer up any breaks on repair.

Not a good purchase

Rose E Grady, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: Be warned that most posts are current. I had this TV for 1 year and a few days and it died. Sony calculates the purchase date as the beginning of their warranty period not the actual date that I received the unit. So was so glad that I purchased an extended warranty thru Amazon--that's another issue all together. Called Sony and they wouldn't help since it was a few days past the warranty according to them. For the amount of money spent on this TV is not worth the price.

Don't Buy Sony--EVER

Jill Duzan, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: This TV quit working a a few days short of one year. Sony has been giving us the run around, now part not available until 12/19. We reported problem on 11/24. Say the offered a replacement and told us this on 26th but we know they did not. They would not have set up an appointment for the serviceman if the part was not going to be available. Don't buy a Sony, ever. I did for 20 years, but would not do it again.

BEWARE!!!

mbj2422, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: I would rate model KDL50EX645 less than 1 star if I could. I purchased the KDL50EX645 on Nov. 23, 2012, Black Friday at a SONY store. I have long wanted a SONY TV and I was delighted to have finally purchased one. I gave away an eight year old, 37" Phillips, flat screen TV that was working perfectly. I just wanted a SONY. While the TV did not have as good a picture as expected, I was willing to live with the picture quality because I got what I thought was a good price.

Sony is a very bad company now.

Richmond Simmons, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: The tv would not turn back on after 3 months and Amazon would not let me return the item and Sony's customer service is a joke, it's been 3 weeks and they still have not sent me a replacement tv.

SONY TV DEAD

Harold Rabinowitz, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: TV dead after 3 months. The only thing that works is a red light that blinks 6 times. I've been waiting ten days for a REFURBISHED replacement, still no TV. SONY customer "service" is non-existent. Stay away from all SONY products.
