Summary: Once calibrated, this TV has been really excellent. I still use roku for smart features, but as a set for blu ray playback, I'm extremely pleased. There is some color distortion when viewing off axis, but it's only noticeable in very dark scenes.
Summary: I bought this tv to replace my 10 year old Panasonic 720p Plasma, and i was a little underwhelmed. Most noteiceably, this tv isn't nearly as bright and vibrant as my old plasma. You can set it to "vivid" to make it brighter but it washes out all the whites and other bright scenes. I play a lot of xbox online and it was a major reason i picked this tv. In "game mode" there is literally no lag.
Summary: I love love love this TV. It's worth every penny. Go for the Sony folks! It was delivered quickly, easy to set up and the Smart TV feature is amazing. My husband loves the 3D feature and glasses that were included.
