Terrible shelf life. Worse customer support.

Carol, Amazon
28 February 2008
  • Summary: I had never purchased such an expensive TV as the KLVS26A10 in my life, but I thought by buying the SONY brand I would be paying for and getting quality. In two years, the picture became so dark that it was difficult to view. I called tech support, but nothing would fix it. I called customer relations and got nowhere. The authorized service dealer was in another city, close to an hour away.

High Quality, High Price

C. Fawcett "chaddly02", Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned the 26" Bravia for about a year and the only con is the price. I paid $1000 for it. The picture is high quality and the features are great. I'm only disappointed that had I looked around a little more I could have got a bigger TV for less, though I probably would have sacrificed some quality.

Awsome television

G. Nicholson, Amazon
19 February 2007
  • Summary: We just bought this TV and are quite impressed. Picture clarity and color are absolutely wonderful, especially for an LCD. Even old video tapes take on a whole new life when viewed with this television. It's also very good looking itself. I really like the light sensor that detects ambient light and adjusts picture brightness.

Trusted Sony and Now Very Disappointed

Coffee Maven, Amazon
12 May 2006
  • Summary: I purchased and have watched the KLVS26A10 for 6 months and have adjusted and modified all I can and it simply is not a good product. It is inconceivable that Sony would put out a bad product like this...there should be a recall of it. The facts: The picture is not good for live/recorded shots of people...there is little definition or depth of facial characteristics.

Returned

H2O Skier, Amazon
9 April 2006
  • Summary: I bought this TV based upon my trust of the Sony brand and the very good rating it got in Consumer Reports. I haven't bought a new TV in 14 years so I was pretty excited about my new purchase. When I hooked it up to my DirectTV (non-HD), I was crest fallen. The picture was horrible. My wife's cheapo old-school Sanyo is way more pleasing to watch. The imperfections in the picture are so blatant that you have to sit 10 feet back to not be constantly annoyed by them.

Bravo Bravia

J. Cowles, Amazon
17 March 2006
  • Summary: For my situation, this medium screen LCD HDTV has been an excellent choice. Picture is crystal clear, sound is excellent and has some "surround" characteristics even without the home theater turned on. The set has multiple inputs for several combinations of video devices. I currently run a VCR (still have some old tapes I don't want to trash), a DVD (standard but will accommodate HD-DVD), and a digital cable box.

Yes and no...

Laurent Grenier, Amazon

  • Summary: The 23" Wega, also from Sony, is a sharper and not much smaller set than the 26" Bravia (sorry Sony). I have no use for the latter.

My ten plus year-old Magnavox looks better!

The B0lt, Amazon
14 January 2006
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying I have never written a review on Amazon or any other site. I feel compelled to do so for this product, in an attempt to warn people of the poor quality. I agree totally with Dustin's review, as I experienced the same result. While the external product is beautiful to look at, the picture quality is horrible. In the two days I've had it, I've spent a large amount of time with different configurations and cables in an attempt to make it work.
