Summary: I purchased this TV in November 2012. Three days ago, I turned it on and the screen was much darker than usual and any images were extremely blurry. The sound was fine but there was an extreme lag in the picture that caused a psychedelic effect, making it unwatchable.
Summary: I bought this "used like new" from an Amazon vendor who assured me the model I bought was not a floor model, had not been previously used or refurbished and had only been taken out of the box to ensure all parts were present as they had purchased from a warehouse on overstock.
Don't be fooled by LED this is an LCD (And an excellent one).

Summary: So this item gets 5 stars for what it is. A older (not really that old) LCD version of the Sony Bravia Version. THE ONLY ISSUE I HAVE WITH THIS IS HOW IT SAYS LED. To the average consumer they may think they're getting a killer deal on an LED TV (which in my opinion LED is the better technology).
Summary: This could be the best TV I've ever owned. SO energy efficient, bright, colorful, and the blacks are BLACK. I use this as a huge computer monitor all the time, and the HD is incredible. I'd recommend this any day. The price is outstanding for this kind of quality.
Summary: This TV has a nice crisp picture with incredible color. It also has good built in sound. It's also a nice looking TV. The stand is sturdy, but I think Sony could have provided a swivel stand with this TV. My only complaint is the blacks, sometimes it pixelates and doesn't give a good pure black.
Summary: Even my picky son who thinks I never do much right keeps saying how great the picture is on this tv. I did not pay attention to the digital recovery rate numbers but have not noticed much problem...I dont watch sports. So I love Sony as usual...
Summary: I was looking for a new TV for the living room when my 17 year CRT finally died. So much to chose from these days.I wasn't looking for 3D or a "smart" TV, just the best possible picture. I happen to have a Sony Outlet Store near me, so got to see this TV up close.
Summary: Recently we replaced our dead Olevia flat screen with this Sony. For the first month of use I was constantly frustrated. I watch a bit of B-Screen horror and Sci-fi with lots of dark scenes. I tried many times to adjust the settings for dark scenes, and I disabled the auto-dim in the setup menu.
Summary: Well, Sony makes a good tv. I could have used another hdmi input, but two seems to be the standard these days. They've made input switching a lot easier and it's really easy to hook your computer up now. I've had a little trouble playing video files from USB, but that's really not an issue for me.
