Pros: Color is very good and bright, (XBR still better), very reliable. Someone that does not know much about TV's, this would be a gold mine with all it's settings in many of use (HD, game connections, PC connections, SONY's Internet APPS, and yes the 3D
Cons: Speakers are in rear facing down, with the TV too close to table top. Internet connection, Sony has not fixed the problem of the TV still tries to update even with all(2)the updates turned off
Summary: The good Great picture. Inputs are in a easily accessible location on the back. On screen menu easy to use. Realitively thin TV (most width is 1/5 inches, with another section in the center around 2.5 inches thick, and at the bottom it is about 3-3.5 inches thick). The bad The sound is ok. However, for a movie experience you need a surround sound system. Also, it takes a little while to turn on the TV - around 8 seconds before you can watch the TV.
Excellent TV, Nightmare Mounting: 5 min job took 3hrs!

Summary: I had an old Computer monitor/TV on a swing-arm wall mount which I wanted to replace with this new 3D Sony Bravia KDL46HX800 LED TV that doubles as a computer screen. It should have taken five minutes to take the old one off and put the new one up. When the Sony TV arrived, we opened it up to find that it only had screws for attaching the base, and they weren't the same size as the wall mounting screw sockets! How idiotic!
Summary: This is the first non-crt tube tv I've owned; held out until the old crt finally gave out. I've had this tv for about a month and here's my opinion. HDTV performance is excellent, but you need to make adjustments. The Sony "Motionflow" works to smooth an otherwise jerky picture, but the "smooth" default setting looks phony, almost creating a live camcorder feel to a cinematic movie.
Summary: TV arrived in good condition. Work great, easy to setup and the picture quality is good. Have not try 3D yet but 2D picture quality is high among the top when playing BD disk with Sony S470 Player.
Summary: I bought this Sony Bravia from a local electronics store a little over a week ago for a very good price. I was looking for a 2D LCD to put over the fireplace in the living room but they had such a good deal on this television I bought it figuring the kids would enjoy the 3D feature. The television has a very good picture and the internet/media streaming features are great.
