Sony Bravia 52 inch lcd

Kim W., Amazon

  • Summary: Do not waste your money. The tv died within 2 years. Sony would not replace it but instead offered us a refurbished one for 700.00. We dont want to waste our money on another Sony tv.

Great picture, and good support

D. W. Smith, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: I've had this TV Since April 2010, which is about 2.5 years. The W model is 120Hz, but has the Bravia Engine 3, like more expensive XBR models. I liked the CineMotion for some things, but it 'feels' like a rubber screen sometimes. Never connected via anything but HDMI, and I don't use the speakers (Sat box --> Yamaha AV Amp --> TV. The Yamaha amp drives my 5.1 surround sound system. My issue started at about 15 months. It turns out that the Sony warranty was 18 months.

Dead in one year, Sony support is completely useless

Steve E G, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: Purchased a Sony Bravia KDL52W5150 HDTV in Nov `09. Immediately had problems with a pop-up warning that the signal could not be displayed...while it was displaying the signal. And the pop-up wouldn't go away until you changed channels quickly or turned the TV off and back on. It was an intermittent problem and not too annoying, especially since I was enjoying the TV the rest of the time (decent picture, even in a bright room, internet apps and streaming...good features).

Nice TV But Has Some Issues

markabtex "scifi addict", Amazon
3 March 2010
  • Summary: This is a nice TV but it does have some important issues. First of all the clouding in dark scenes or "flashlighting" can be annoying and is a common defect on these TVs. Sony is aware of the issue and their only suggestion is to turn down the backlight and/or brightness. If you like a bright vibrant picture, you will not want to turn down either. The second issue is the sound. You would think that a product made by Sony would have above average sound quality.

Incredible Machine!

Denis McCarthy, Amazon
1 January 2010
  • Summary: Santa Claus brought this TV to our home on the 25th. I couldn't wait to power up the unit even though it was late in the evening after getting home from our annual Christmas gathering at my folks home. My previous unit was a Pioneer Elite 50" second generation projection. Nice picture, really big and heavy, terrible off center view, but overall a nice tv. This thing just blows that old technology away.

Beautiful TV, Fabulous Pictures - like XBR9 except 240 Hz

Daniel Kim, Amazon
11 November 2009
  • Summary: My Sony 52W5150 is a thing of beauty! The pictures are fabulous and it looks great in the living room also. My old 60 Hz Sharp 46 inch cannot compare to this TV in terms of deep blacks and motion picture quality. First, the pictures are amazing! The blacks are so ridiculously black... my biggest pet peeve on a HDTV is the greyish black when there's supposed to be a black background on some older TV's. You don't have that problem with this TV.

52 Sony Bravia W Series

C. Newman, Amazon
29 October 2009
  • Summary: Great picture on this 52 inch Sony Bravia but the sound is average. It is noticeably thin so I guess the trade off is lack of big speakers to deliver great sound. I have it plugged into a Blu Ray HT system and I'm very happy with the purchase - sounds great. The TV is very easy to use - easy setup -- and connects to the internet via ethernet cable. I would have preferred that the TV wirelessly connect to the internet but that would be more $$$.
