Summary: This TV lasted less than three years for me until it went into permanent standby mode. Calling Sony was not helpful - they said the only possibility was to take it to a certified repair center, which charges $150 just to look at it. Outside of this, the picture was always pretty good. Not the best for sports. The internet apps platform is pretty dreadful in terms of ease of use and look and feel, particularly when compared to a Roku or Apple TV.
Picture not good from side viewing angle. Pic fades
21 February 2011
Summary: TV picture quality is good when view from front but when you move sideways the picture fades in color. Amazon price match policy is the worst. After I bought this TV i have tried showing prrof to amazon on other sites which had around 300 less than what I spent on amazon.
