Excerpt: I stopped watching t.v in 1990, but have always loved movies. For the last eleven years my husband and I have lived across the movie theater in Evanston. It was great-except for one thing: the last few years all the really good writing and ideas have gone into t.v serials, both foreign and domestic. Consequently, I found myself watching netflix or amazon streaming on my computer.
Pros: Best looking TV out there, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Reduced Glare
Summary: I got this Sony to replace another 60" Sony I bought 4 years ago. The old one had a great pic but I thought I wanted 3D and the "Smart TV" options for Amazon, YouTube, etc., so when a friend wanted to buy my old one I thought this is a great time to upgrade. Crutchfield gave me a good price and I am very happy with the new TV.
Pros: Excellent picture, very good sound (even though I seldom use the speakers, linked it with the surround receiver), and the wi-fi works great! A little slow to respond, but it works as expected. It actually makes the Apple TV box unnecessary!
Cons: The 3D looks good, but the glasses are VERY expensive, and you only get 2 pair with it. It's ridiculous to think you will not need 4 pair at least! Then the selection of 3D, forget it! Glad I didn't upgrade for this alone!
Summary: Amazing Picture , love this set . I've owned 3 sony's before but I must say this one is far better than my old sets.. Sharp , bright pictures so real its almost like your there ! Mostly movie fan here dvd's and cable . . Set up was easy , although never did get the cable box to sync with the set . I run it all thru my big Pioneer surround any way its working great . Big learning curve with all the features.
Pros: Great picture quality , didn't need much if any adjusting . CNN reviews give some tips on set adjustment's Got an amazing deal here , open box special .
Cons: Big , heavy, and 3 D not a great pict . Hence my 4 Star rating . Slow response time somewhat when changing channels . Price point needs to come down . UPS was a bit slow on their delivery times !
Summary: Got this TV to replace my 5yr old 40KDLXBR7....and i tell you what. I was blown away, mostly because of the 20" increase. Setup was pretty easy right out of the box. Speaking of right out of the box, this tv is heavy at 70+ lbs. So make sure you have someone help you. The picture is pretty good, nice and smooth which is a increase over my 40" Sony. I would recommend this TV to anyone. 5 starts would be given if it was in the $1200 range. Maybe in time it will come down.
Pros: Speakers sound dang good in here. Really good low end fairly impressed honestly. Picture is pretty good. I did make the mistake of looking at the 4K TVs when i was looking at this one. Oops. There is nothing wrong with the picture, def not a CON, but could be content i tested it with. Gravity BluRay on Sony BluRay player. Naming the inputs is really nice when you cant remember which device is plugged into which input
Cons: The OS (smart menus) are slow to response. Granted this isnt a i7 processor station but it does take some time to load APPS and such. I do have one weird issue with it switching to low quality when i go to my FIOS on-demand menu. Still need to figure that one out. Not as good as 4K (obviously) but not that BIG of a jump from my 40KDLXBR7
Summary: I purchased a 60 inch Sony TV KDL 60W850B. I was very pleased with the over all quality on the unit. The setup was easy to follow and installing the unit over a fireplace went smoothly. I would recommand this TV to friends and family members.
Pros: Picture quality is sharp and easy to watch..
Cons: Setting up the remote to control cable top box was not intuitive..
Summary: Just got my second Sony Flat Panel TV but this time a 60". Amazing picture, just like my 46". The sound is also very good becauce og the spaker size. Controls are very easy to use as well and the WiFi connection works very well as well.
