Summary: Got this TV in March of 2011 and loved it. Due to financial constraints I did not buy the expensive extended warranty. Worked beautifully for 27 months and then the picture went and the sound set itself to earsplitting and would not be adjusted. Repairman wanted $550.00 to repair.
Summary: If you like the bright picture of a LCD but can't stand the motion blur, This TV does a great job of eliminating the blur. It has a great picture, but the awesome thing is you can watch sports and movies and not be bothered by a slow refresh rate.
Summary: Sony KDL 60EX500 delivered on time. Cosmetic condition of TV as described in Amazon Marketplace Ad. The TV is watchable for bright content, but has what appears to be multiple bad pixels appearing as a red oval streaked area on lower portion of center of screen in darker scenes.
Summary: We had a 2005 SXRD, we'd had to have the optical block replaced 1 due to green screen effect (not cost to us). Then a year later I'm noticing that when the TV is showing something w/a white background (HDTV has lots of this) there was "yellow burn out".
Summary: I bought my KDL-60EX500 60" Sony Bravia From Amazon.com after extensive research. I consider it a very shrewd purchase. The shipping was free and very fast. I compared prices with the less reputable brands, and even the Walmart specials were not as reasonably priced as my new Sony.
Summary: I bought a Sony BRAVIA KDL-60EX500 in Feb 2011. POOR PICTURE QUALITY!!! I wish I kept the box as I would return this thing I hope it gets hit by lightning this year. I am wondering if this CRAPPY Sony TV is supposed to SUCK compared to the Sony XBR series..
