Summary: I bought this TV because it seemed like a great value at 699. However, there was a vertical line of dead blue pixels almost immediately after setting it up with heavy ghosting to the left. Must have a manufacturing defect. Also, the tv had motion blur every time the shot on screen panned.
Summary: I just bought it a week before Black Friday, best price $648 for a 60" and it is a Sony! Well, 7 days later I encountered what seems to be the norm. A vertical line of what seems to be dead pixels approximately 1/4 of the left side.
Summary: I purchased this tv thinking it would be an upgrade in picture and size over my 2006 46" Sony projection 720p tv. It was an upgrade in size, but picture, not so much. We have Dish Network HD programming. I tried and tried to adjust the picture, but to no avail.
Summary: I was seriously disappointed by the lack of an on-screen program guide on this Sony. This, in my opinion, is a serious deficiency. Does the great Sony really want to be put in the same category as those "just the bare essentials to make the grade" companies.
Summary: I expected to get a better quality TV for the money that I am paying. However, the TV viewing angle is not what they claim. My dinner table is at an angle of about 130-140 degrees and the color of the picture is really bad. However, when you sit directly in front of the TV, it is much better.
