Summary: I did not know much about large TV's so I asked friends who have owned Sony for many years. I purchased a 52" Bravia in Feb 2008. I was happy with the TV but again I am not a picky viewer and don't have an eye for the details many talk about. After about 2-1/2 years the picture started to flicker and do so many wrong things I have forgotten many of them. But after 10-30 minute warm up all was fine.
Summary: I've had my Bravia EX700 52" LED HDTV for almost 1 year and it still works fine. The picture ranges from 480i to full 1080p resolution. After you select an input it displays the current resolution on the top left. Overall the picture is amazing--everything you would imagine with a LED 1080p HDTV. The TV has 4 HDMI, 1 component(blue, green, red video cables), 1 composite(yellow video cable), 1 component/composite(you chose), 1 USB, and 1 PC inputs(s).
Summary: I had finally decided to upgrade to HD, after using the same SD sets for more than 15 years (also Sonys, and which are still working well.) I had not originally gone shopping for a 52" model - I was looking at the 42-46" range. But in doing a lot of research and comparison, I came across this Bravia on sale at Amazon for $1459.
great pic for an lcd display- could have been designed better

Summary: I purchased this set shortly before last Christmas at a substantial discount.... due to the fact that it was a floor model, which I don't mind a few scratches here and there. Being a "plasma" man for the last 5 years or so, this TV took some getting used to. While it has a very bright, beautiful picture, the first thing that struck me is that it reminds me of a laptop computer screen....
Summary: I just bought this Sony Bravia KDL-52EX700 a few weeks ago. It's great for watching sports and blu-ray movies. I hooked up my PS3 recently and the graphics are amazing, it seems unreal. I got this for about $300 cheaper online at a site I think is called Newopenbox. It was well worth it even if it was originally open. I would highly recommend this TV to anyone.
Summary: I shopped in stores and online for about three weeks before deciding on this model. I already had a 37" Magnavox HD flat panel which still works wonderfully and is going in the bedroom. My only concern about purchasing any Sony TV was the sound quality, which had been questioned by serveral reviewers. We have our new Sony wired so we can use the TV speakers or home theater.
Summary: This T.V. has a wonderful picture. It gives you the impression that you are looking out a window(not watching a t.v.). Needless to say, I am very impressed with the picture quality. We also have a PS3 hooked up to it and the games play wonderfully (no extra lag). I would definitely recommend this T.V.
