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.
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.
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.
