Don't be fooled by LED this is an LCD (And an excellent one).
8 November 2013
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). The reality of things are this is "LED Backlit" which in all honesty doesn't mean anything.
Summary: When compared to other display TV's, it might seem it is not as bright as the competition, however, I believe this is a marketing strategy to catch the eyes of the buyer, but don't be fooled, images look sharp and clear, much better for similar priced rivals. Besides some issues with HDMI (could not connect my newly bought PC with HDMI 1.4, this might be a cable problem instead but need to do more troubleshooting) this is a great TV for the price.
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. Remember to buy a mounting bracket and heavy toggle bolts if you're putting this on a wall! I was able to mount this on drywall with heavy duty toggle bolts and a simple tilting mounting bracket.
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. But overall, a great TV.
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. Thought the picture was extremely good...actually better than my 4 year old Panasonic LCD. 42 inches was all I could fit into the cabinet..Amazon had the best price.
Summary: The TV has met all of our expectations (not a big TV snob/afficionado by any stretch). Worked right out of the box and we love the picture quality. Special shout-out to Amazon for doing an excellent job working with me to meet an unusual shipping request, we were amazed at how well everything went!
