Summary: I bought this tv a few weeks ago from Walmart and i have to say the tv was well packaged in a beautiful box with all the trimmings and Walmart held up their end of the bargain with fast shipping and handling. I was so happy to be purchasing a 60" Sony LED HDTV (even tho i probably should have spent a little more and went with the 4K model) especially since the price of the tv was so incredible..
Great 120Hz LED HDTV, if you can find it for the "right" price....

Summary: I debated whether or not to give this set 3 or 4 stars - it's really 3.5 stars, maybe even 3.8 (I know, I'm getting a tad picky). Any way, I found this set from Walmart for $699, as an upgrade to my 7-year old 42" Vizio. It mounted perfectly on the wall using my same wall mount. I have a PS3, Wii U, and Sony Soundbar connected to it. The Bravia Sync is great (everything switches to the correct input and audio by itself), and the screen clarity is pretty amazing.
Summary: It took me about 4 days to get the settings just right and what a difference it makes! I'm not using game mode since it greys out some of the settings from being adjusted. The picture is rich in color with deep contrast range. I found that turning on Live Color and turning Gamma down to -2 made a huge difference too. If you don't want to ruin the settings you already have, try them on another input since each one can have its own separate settings.
Summary: I have been skeptical of this unit since there have been so many reviews saying that this unit is only 60 hertz. If you type in the actual TV code KDL60R510A, and check out the Sony website, it will show you they have updated the information to say 120 hertz. I do not know if the unit is 60 or 120, all I can say is that the picture looks pretty darn good for the most part.
Summary: I bought this TV 2 days ago. The ad said it is 120Hz. Was told by clerk that it was a Smart TV. I checked reviews when I got it home and saw reviews on other sites that said it was 60Hz not 120Hz. Also other sites said it was a Smart TV. Well I went straight to Sony's site and asked them if it was 120Hz and if it was a Smart TV. They said it was 120Hz but they said it was not a Smart TV. This TV is supposed to be Wifi and it has apps for Netflix and others.
Excerpt: DELIVERY EXPERIENCE WAS NOT GOOD. WAITED 4 HOURS THEN THEY CANCELLED BECAUSE OF TIE UP ON ANOTHER JOB. RESCHEDULED FOR 3 DAYS LATER AND WAITED ANOTHER 3 HOURS BUT DID NOT SHOW UP UNTIL WAITING 4 HOURS. NOT HAPPY AT ALL WITH THE SERVICE I RECEIVED. ABT DROPPED THE BALL ON THIS ONE.
Summary: When I plug my external drive to the USB slot on my TV, I cannot play the youtube FLV video format. I updated the TV software and still it did not want to play the FLV video format. Does anybody else have this experience? Is there a solution to this?
Summary: I bought this TV for around $1200 over 3 months ago and the back pannel went out. I called Sony and they are not very cooperative to fix it. They want to replace it with a Refurbished one (Used one). I am really pissed. I had heard that Sony quality is getting worse and is not the same as it used to be. Now i can see why. I recommend NOT to buy any Sony products. I definitely will not.
Summary: My wife liked Sony so I got one KDL-60EX645 when it was on sales at great price and because it was wifi internet TV as well. It turns out that it is a mistake on the WIFI internet side. Sony closes its environment to an open internet and only wanted to promote its products which is not the right thing to do at all. I don't want to have to go through its product when I surf the internet. I want to use the TV to serf the internet.
