Excerpt: Just bought this TV for myself as a Christmas present and I came to the conclusion that this was the best choice I ever made in my life. Right when I opened the box the slick look just amazed me. The screen is only glass (well, that might be a downside for some people, but it adds to the quality and the look), which also makes it easier to clean it when it gets dirty.
Excerpt: I received this television a couple weeks ago and am blown away by it's picture quality. In my opinion it has the best picture I've seen on a 55inch LCD/LED. In a tv of this price the 3d transmitter should have been built in as it's very tacky looking to have that thing exposed. The 3d glasses are incredibly uncomfortable to me and both of my daughters. My 13yr old was excited to get a 3d tv but now won't even put the glasses on anymore. I don't really care about...
Excerpt: Just bought this television from Best Buy a month ago, it was bundled with a ps3 and a 3D package. Its quality is absolutely fantastic, I've never been more impressed with a televisions picture quality. It also integrates itself perfectly with other Sony products (audio bar, PS3) and these items can be almost completely controlled with 1 remote. Quality aside this television does have a few problems.
Summary: It was delivered by one older guy. the tv is huge and heavy in the box. i am a 5 ft girl so me trying to help him was way a pain in the ass. should be delivered by two guy. the quality of the tv is pretty awesome menu is easy to understand. loved how it had the i-manual on the tv made it super easy. pandora is really enjoyable on here can cook and have my music on (senses fail). i would say the only down side to the tv so far is the sound.
Summary: I had a Sony 3LCD that went bad. Blue splotches, yellow tinting, etc. I called Sony, and even though my old TV was out of warranty, they offered me a big discount on some of their newer TVs. None of them was what I wanted. I really wanted this particular model after looking at it in a local store. To make a long story short, I bought this TV from Amazon, and it has been great so far.
Summary: I did not purchase this from amazon, but have owned it for several weeks now. There are some pretty good reviews so I just want to make a couple of points for anyone considering a purchase. First, this TV is a pretty good deal if you can get half off MSRP. There is NO WAY I could recommend paying anywhere near close to retail. You just can get something for much cheaper than that with equal or better picture quality.
Sony Fan-Boy for life, but this wasn't 100% what I expected
17 March 2011
Summary: Let me preface this by saying I've been a Sony fan ever since I can remember. I'm 26 with every one of my electronics being manufactured by Sony and I have yet to buy an electronic made by them that has let me down. This TV didn't let me down, in fact it is far from a let down. I bought my first flat-screen in 2007/8-ish, a sony 52w4100. I am in love with it, even to this day. I moved it to my bedroom and now have it hanging above my dresser.
