Summary: After looking and comparing HDTV's for several months I finally decided to opt out for top quality as opposed to size... I have always been very happy with Sony products and this is no exception... I am well pleased and glad that I chose the KDL-32XBR6... I look forward to many hours of pleasure... I was also pleased with the delivery, which was free... Pilot was the delivery service and delivered two days early....
Summary: I ordered this TV after many weeks of research on the net. I have only had it now for few weeks and nothing compares to it- honestly speaking.The picture and sound are crisp clear - a true 1080 pixel quality. With an upscaling DVD player you are sure to watch a HD quality picture just with a normal DVD. The picture quality for sure is much better than that of 720p TV.
Summary: I bought this back in december 2008, and so far it's been a great product. This was my first HDTV, so I had to carefully choose something I wouldn't regret later, and after reading a lot on forums and websites, I decided to buy this one, and I think I made the right choice. I use this mainly for gaming on my Xbox360, and the games look absolutely great! I have watched HDTV programming from my cable company, and it looked great too.
Summary: I decided to get a new TV for the family room and my son's bedroom, so I did a ton of research, studying, reading reviews and looking at the displays at the various stores in my area. I came to the conclusion that... the Pioneer Kudos plasmas were the best, but too pricey. The Panasonic plasma and Sony XBR LCD were my next two choices. I finally decided on the Sony, but was disappointed to learn that the size I wanted wouldn't fit in my entertainment center.
Summary: I mean to say that usually I buy something and then a week later I capitulate. Not with this TV! It is the most amazing thing. The only thing I could have wished for is the screen could be as wide and tall as my old TV so I could have filled the hole in my entertainment center..Really tho this TV has every aspect covered from picture to sound to ease of use.
Summary: Satisfied with the TV. Great picture....best sound of all TVs in this size (Sony S-Force). Samsung also has good sound with their XT Surround...we just liked the Sony sound a little better. It may seem wierd to be talking about sound on an HDTV purchase, but we have it in the bedroom....not hooked up to a home theater system, so it was important to us. The first TV arrived damaged....we refused delivery and Amazon quickly sent a replacement.
Summary: I received the TV a couple days ago. Delivery and setup was breeze. The picture out of the box was terrible!!! The colors were dull. I have the Samsung ln40a650 so I know what I should expect. It reminds me of the Vizio my friend has. I could not understand how Sony made such an awful product. XBR at that!!! I remember reading another reviewer's comment about turning off the automatic ambient lighting adjustment so I tried it. It was night and day!!!
VERY IMPORTANT -- Try turning off the light sensor!

Summary: Sorry about the screaming, all-caps alert, but I'm simply astounded that Sony ships this great TV with a default setting that completely undercuts it, and I want to make sure potential buyers know about it. When I initially set up my 32XBR6, I was frustrated trying to get the Standard or Custom picture settings where I wanted them. Even with backlight adjustments, they seemed too dark and muted.
Summary: All good: excellent picture, extremely easy set up, smooth delivery, lowest price . . . I am very pleased with this purchase. One pleasant surprise was how it automatically tuned every station, including all of the HD digital stations. I have standard cable from Comcast. I called them before I bought the TV to see if I would need a box. The Comcast service representative told me unequivocally "yes, you need a box." I hate boxes. In fact, it works just fine without one.
