Summary: This TV has been pretty good. I have the 55 in which is as large as this model goes I believe. The only knock so far has been the smart TV interface can lag a bit, but overall the picture has been amazing.
Summary: I like it. The TV is everything I thought it would be. The audio coming out of its speakers isn't quite up to the audiophile standards. If you buy this TV you might consider getting external speakers. I tried the 3D glasses and they seem OK. I would have given the TV 5 stars but I have only had it for a month. I will revisit this later and perhaps give it 5 stars. My experience with Sony has been positive so far.
very pleased with what i paid and what i received from sony and this tv

Summary: An overall rating of 4 out of 5 is simply because this is my first 3d television. 1- it doesn't come with any 3d glasses but on the other hand the 3d transmitter is built in. 2- the controller isn't back lit and there's no sleep timer on the remote. 3- the on screen tv guide is great even if you don't have a cable box. 4- the apps for the television are some what lacking. I've got a Sony 3d blu ray surround that also has apps such as vudú that the tv does not.
Summary: Get this TV for the amazing picture quality and features that Sony is famous for, but you will want to connect this directly to the network because the WiFi is so slow and unreliable with this set that you will hate it. After I connected directly to the home Internet connection, the whole Sony experience went from extremely painful to pure viewing pleasure. If you don't need the WiFi features, then you will be just fine.
Summary: - LED, 240hz, 3D, internet TV, Netflix, lot of good features for the price level. Clearly discounted based on MSRP from sonys website, whether they actually ever sold at full MSRP, I'm not sure. - Good quality picture from this TV connected to HDTV, haven't tried blu ray yet. My XBR is a little bit sharper, but it also cost me a lot more a few years ago, and its smaller by far.
Summary: After received till now. Everything works great. The only thing which I hope is that it can support other language beside English. I used its "Internet content" to watch Youtube video. The letters which are not English all become square.
Summary: Sony has always been known to make great TV's. Market research shows it lagging behind Samsung. I am completely satisfied with this TV in terms of performance, design and quality. However I do feel it is overpriced by at least 300-400 dollars. Internet Features are not great and WiFi performance is poor. Hopefully the next release of Sony firmware will address this issue.
Summary: I bought this tv for relatively cheap at $1200 shipped to the door including taxes, so my review takes that into account as well. 1. The good: This TV has a lot to offer, like the LGs and Samsungs it also has the 2d to 3D button that will give some depth to 2D picture. The TV is light, and thin...plenty bright for a living room with lots of windows. Sound is awesome.
Summary: I came from a 2006 LG 42" LCD, so I'm impressed with this Sony. I never had any problems with the old LG, which had an excellent viewing angle. Being one of the earlier LCDs, it had very poor black levels in anything less than a brightly lit room. The Sony has a very faint blue/purple/gray glow during very dark scenes in a very dark room, but it's more than acceptable and orders or magnitude better than my old LG - not as good as plasma, but very acceptable for an LCD.
