Summary: I'm satisfied. This Sony works great with a surround sound system. The sound on the unit has to be adjusted for the tv speakers but with a surround sound system on this tv, it is awesome. Picture quality from 720 to 1080p, and 1080i as an option. I purchased this tv for a fraction of what it is advertised for so I'm very happy....
Summary: I purchased this Sony Bravia from WalMart a little over a year ago. It simply stopped working last Thursday evening. I have done some simple troubleshooting to try to determine if there were any external causation...I.e.: Electrical outlet having no power...however, using other outlets proved that theory incorrect. I also checked the outlet that had been used for power...it was good. Circuit Breakers good to go. One thing.
Summary: I got this as a refurb. The same model was selling used locally for the same price range (and mine came with a warranty). I did a lot of research before committing to buy this model. It doesn't have tons of bells and whistles that many other models have, but that's not what I'm concerned with. I wanted a television with good picture quality, and this one has it. It's great and I absolutely love it.
Beware SONY, does not stand behind their products....Do Not Purchase SONY

Summary: Purchased a $3000 KDS-R60XBR2 Flagship TV from SONY. Started having a DEFECTIVE optical block problem. Never heard from them about this and they have my email and address. There were law suits etc. etc. But not a peep from them. Now my TV is broken and will cost $1000 to fix, if you can get the part. Called them and they offered this 55BX520 for a super discounted price of $950 and that was their Olive Branch offer to keep me as a Sony customer.
Summary: I have to admit I'm not the type of person who cares to much about having an internet-ready TV, so if you are this TV probably is not for you. However, if you want a large, quality TV with a great picture I highly recommend it. I actually bought this model because I was able to get a great deal on it since I had some Sony gift cards (I bought it for less than $250) but after seeing other models in stores I am really pleased I went with this one.
Summary: great tv shipped promptly contact with support staff was excellent. I was worried that wo/seeing screen picture that it wouldnt be worth that money but when I installed it the picture is extremely sharp.
Summary: I bought this TV about 7 months ago Here's some pros and cons -> Matte screen + Easy Daytime viewing - Black levels -> IPS Panel (According to a guy with a magnifying glass looking at the panel on avsforums) + Possibility to calibrate well + Great viewing angles -> CCFL backlight + Better backlight uniformity - Thick -> Random - Only 2xhdmi - ARC isn't supported - Matte screen is less helpful in the daytime when the bevel is glossy...
Great picture quality but not a smart Tv and only 2 hdmi

Summary: This is a great TV if u are looking for picture quality and that's all. I have Xbox/ps3/Wii/apple tv/bluray all with smart features so not having smarts in the tv is fine. After calibration the picture quality is superb at a good price. The cons are that it only has 2 hdmi and for audio u need to use the optical out to your AV. I got a monoprice 4x1 hdmi switcher which works great and I don't mind using optical out for audio out.
Pros: Picture quality is superb
Cons: Not a smart tv, only 2 HDMI & not ARC to send audio back to your AV through hdmi
Summary: The one star rating is entirely about the lie that it has picture in picture, otherwise it would be a 4 or perhaps a 5. I know most of you could care less about picture in picture, you have never set it up or used it on any TV, so you probably don't care. I went out looking for a specific Vizio model that had PIP. Found this at Wallmart for a fantastic price, under $900. The Sony site says it has picture in picture and implies side by side pictures. But that is a lie.
