Summary: I bought this model on sale from Amazon and I definitely happy I did so. Very high quality picture. Sound is good, but I use a Sony Blu-Ray/Home Theater with the TV and that is the best way for this system. In fact, I recommend this TV as the perfect companion to a Sony Home system. For sizing, I am using this TV in a room where the viewers are 10-15 feet from the screen...this TV does very nicely for those dimensions.
Summary: After four days of minimal use, screen shuddered and picture went black.Then audio crashed.Hooked old set up to same connection and old unit operated fine.Sony has "Assembled in Mexico" on new package.When working,unit operated much like a 60hz set with juddering on action programs and a tint issue.Sony in name -only product and not up to expectations.Bought through non-Amazon retailer.Returned non-working unit.
Summary: Our living room tv recently broke and we needed to replace it. With Christmas around the corner we did not want to spend a whole lot of money on a replacement. This tv was a great deal for a tv from a reputable manufacturer. It has a great picture and good sound quality. We do get a glare on it but I think that is because of where in our living room it is hanging. Our other tv had one too. I would definitely recommend this tv to anyone looking for a great deal!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Purchased just before thanksgiving and have watched a lot of football since. This TV is absolutely amazing, especially for the price. I like it much more than a smaller Samsung I have at home. Sony design and quality at 50" for this price is a steal.
Pros: Best looking TV out there, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality
Summary: The low profile border around the screen is very nice. Colors and sound are good too...almost too good as it reveals all the flaws in the on-screen content like bad makeup on news anchors or uneven lighting in sports arenas. I like everything about this but...there's only one composite input and no s-video input either. I'm still too heavily invested in analog media and have an older DVD player (with no HDMI output) and a large VHS library and working VCR.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality, LED-backlit
Summary: The TV Is very clear, but I wish it had more HDMI Ports. With everything being HDMI These days, it only has 2 ports, which I Feel is low. I bought an HDMI Switch though that allows me to hook up 4 HDMIS to one input and that seems to work great with the tv . Other then that, it is a solid tv.
