Summary: After researching TVs I suddenly realized the best one for my price range had been stopped manufacturing by Sony, and the newer model was inferior! I got lucky to get one from Amazon Warehouse Deals in "Used - Very Good" condition and it came to me in nearly perfect condition. It was used lightly but looked like it had been repackaged by Sony or someone else, everything practically in new condition.
Summary: I was considering 55" Samsung F8000, and the price was giving me some excess stomach acid. I looked at the reviews of this set, and they were positive enough that I decided to take the plunge. I'm glad I did - it's an excellent set with great picture quality. I was in BB recently, and looked again at the F8000 - the picture did seem a little better, but I think that's in part to how they drive the screen harder on display models (which shortens life).
Summary: My profession is Television Broadcast Engineering and I have been at it for over 35 years. Back before flat screen TVs we had the cathode ray tube (CRT) and the Sony Trinitron was king. Nothing could beat the picture quality of the Trinitron. When the LCD TV came out I assumed Sony would be the best but to my surprise a little known company named Samsung became top dog and is still highly regarding for picture quality.
Summary: This sony tv is the best tv I have ever owend ,and im still getting used to the picture quality.Its amazing what sony has done to make every single chanel thats hd look like you are there in real life.I know 4k is supose to be way better than 1080p but this tv proves that sony is doing no other company is doing and thats taking 1080p to another level.I love this tv and I want to thank sony for making me smile every time I turn this tv on!
Summary: Since 2007 I have owned Panasonic plasmas. I had tried in the past to move to Lcd/Led Tv`s, and they could never touch the sweetness of plasma, until now. We are not gamers,so this review is for 80% Frontier Fios and %20 movie streaming and bluerays. We do not watch and SD programing, SD picture is ok just not up to plasma standards.
Summary: I've owned this TV for about a month now. I would say that the TV is strictly designed for its picture quality, so if you are looking for a TV with smart features, you might want to stay away from this. (I would rather go for a better picture quality though over smart features, which I find are useless. For example, I don't need a camera facing me the entire time when I'm on my couch.
Summary: I looked for 6 months at this TV before buying it last week. Every time I saw it next to whatever high end Samsung that was being pitched at me, there was no doubt that the Sony just had better picture quality at the same size. Considering my last TV was a Samsung DLP that went starry field with 180 dots before I scrapped it, this TV is a huge improvement for all the gaming and movies I can do.
