Summary: I did not buy the TV from Amazon, I bought it from another retailer for a good sale they were having. So far so good. The TV has performed to my expectations. HD NHL Hockey looked great, played some Xbox 360 and it looked beautiful and A quick Blu-ray movie test looked impressive. I have not experimented with the picture settings yet, but out of the box everything looks pretty great already. I am very pleased with the tv.
Summary: Well,since I upgraded from my 48" LG (which I love as a fantastic unit) I was a little taken aback at first at the size in our rather small living room. This picture is HUGE and even more so because of the small outline around the screen. It just seems to float there. SO far, picture quality is superb, sound surprisingly fine for a TV relatively, controls are primitive but adequate.
Summary: Wish I had bought from Amazon. Bought from Costco, better price but paid delivery. The TV out of the box? Perfect! Plus it picked up 10 more readable signals from a weak cable system in our apt than its Vizio predecessor.Remote is so-so but I never had a good remote. The WiFi cordless works better than our Roku which we had for the Vizio.
Summary: This TV never fails to bring the WOW moment to all every time. The Motionflow 240 brings life not just with movies but even on regular TV viewing - you will certainly notice the difference. It also boasts a user-friendly interface for internet and apps, which truly provides a "Smart TV" experience. The Picture off mode provides a power saving option when just playing music or when you are away doing something. Sony quality is worth every penny.
Summary: I received my 60" Sony R520A yesterday. Right out of the box the set was close to perfect. I reset the picture setting to Custom and did a little adjusting after I attached the stand. Today I used The World of Wonder Blu-ray to tweak it a bit more. I'm impressed with the black level, the lack of any light bleed, and the picture in general. I was afraid the set may have been too large for my great room, but I could have gone larger.
Summary: I have just purchased this TV and it was delivered on 11/20/2013 - I will be updating this review in progess as I continue to explore different functions of the TV. SHIPPING AND DELIVERY - Although this has nothing to do with the TV itself, I will say that I was really disappointed with the delivery.
Summary: Excellent picture right out of the box. I originally had the Panasonic 65" S60 and within weeks it was randomly was going into safe mode and would not turn back on for several hours. I returned the panasonic and purchased the 60" sony from Amazon and couldn't be happier. I use OTA channels and Netflix. All channels look Great and streaming (ethernet cable) is faster then my other streaming sources. Paid less then $1300 shipped to my door!
How to turn off Soap Opera Effect on this otherwise great model
Noel O., Amazon
7 November 2013
Summary: The picture is great, the sound quality is good, and the price is pretty unbeatable! My only gripe with it is that the default settings cause major Soap Opera Effect [Soap Opera Affect, SOE]. While this is a well known technical phenomenon, SONY still ships the tv with default settings that make this really annoying. Full disclosure: I don't know much about TVs, or their underlying technology. Frankly I don't really care either.
