Summary: This is a best deal I can find for Sony 65" HD TV. The picture quality is good. I like the Sony brand name despite some reviews said that Samsung has better picture quality for the HD TV. I just feel more comfortable with Sony name.
Summary: We were torn between the Samsung LN65B650 tv and the Sony KDL65W5100. We finally decided to purchase the Sony, due to the fact we have a heavily lite room. The Sony TV has a fantastic picture right out of the box, and we are totally satisfied with this purchase. There is no glare during the day light hours making it exactly what we needed. We would highly recommend this tv to anyone. You will not be disappointed in your purchase.
Summary: I've had this 65" Sony LCD for about a month now, and it is incredible. I replaced a 63" Samsung plasma that I had just had delivered. The Samsung had a really clear picture but, despite its size, the picture just didn't have the impact you expect from a screen that large. It just wasn't bright enough. The Sony really took care of that. The colors are natural but they really "pop." The clarity and brightness tremendous.
Summary: Hello all, I work for the Big Screen Store in Fairfax, Virginia. We just received this set. I have been in the industry for over 8 years now and have sold the best that Flat panel has to offer (Pioneer Elite, Sony XBR, etc). When I first un-boxed this set, I immediately adjusted the settings to accommodate the proper levels for our store HD feed. I was very impressed with the color, clarity, and black levels of the image.
Summary: I ordered mine as soon as it became available and let me tell you now this thing is BEAUTIFUL!!!! I put is side by side with kuro that was 18 months old and the kuro didnt even look as good in a number of situations. Not sure if the kuro had been calibrated in awhile but the Sony looked great right out of the box. It is gorgeous hanging on the wall.
Ignore reviews about wrong size for Sony BRAVIA W-Series KDL65W5100

Summary: The person who posted a review for this TV where he says the TV is only 61 or 62 inches is not correct. I am having one delivered in the next day or two however because of his review I went to Fry's and RC Wiley and measured it myself. It is 64.5 inches which is what SONY indicated at their website. I will provide a further review once I have the set.
Summary: I was very surprised to learn from the other reviewer that the screen size is only 61 inches measured diagonally. I don't own this TV but I am looking for a 65 inch unit to replace my 65 inch xbr rear profection. I did a little investigation and called Sony and they referred me to there outlet stores. I called three different stores, two in Las Angeles and one in Gilroy Ca. and only one had the TV in stock but the salesman was kind enough to measure the TV's screen size.
