Summary: I was rather pleased with this unit. My minor quibble was with the built-in speakers, which are a bit tinny. It wasn't a bother for me, since I use a home theater system. Good color range, the 3D looks great. I was a happy customer. Until I hit the 12th month of ownership. Right after the warranty expired. Suddenly the first HDMI input stopped working. Totally dead.
Picture is sensitive to viewing angle, very disappointed

Summary: Length:: 0:57 Mins I have a 46" Samsung LN46A650 which I have owned for two years and been very pleased with, but I was looking to get another TV so I could move that one to another room. I wanted to get one that was bigger and was actually looking to get another Samsung, but then I found the Sony with a $1000 online coupon. When I saw that it was Sony's top 55" model and all of the spectacular reviews on Amazon, I thought I had found a major steal.
Summary: Just got my second delivery of the television and it's broken. The first had a tear in the front part of the packaging with a quarter inch scratch on the panel. Amazon was awesome and sent a replacement immediately, but the Pilot delivery service is awful. They denied ever getting a pickup request from Amazon and refused to pick up the screen. I now have two flat panels sitting in my living room as awesome cat perches.
