Many years of excellent picture

bn, Amazon
17 December 2014
  • Summary: Almost ten years and still a great picture and still a nice looking set (not an old, dated, style). I have two of this series Sony's. A couple new lamps over the years which is as listed should be required. No complaints.

9 years and still going

Business Owner, Amazon
22 November 2012
  • Summary: I was the first consumer that I know of to own this tv in my town. I spent, yes, over $3,000 and never regretted it. I am a movie and game buff, so the hours on my tv after 9 years is probably easily 16k plus.

  • Summary: My Feb-2005 Sony 42" 720p HDTV 14" deep slimline is still working fine and......on its original bulb! Honestly, that HDTV must have easily over 12k hours, being 8 1/2 years old, probably closer to 15k hours.

Item is known defective

cindy, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: I have this model. It has blue dots and blue smears on the picture. I did some research, and it turns out the model has a known defect. Sony was offering a discount on a new TV due to a class action settlement, but the discount offer has expired.

Blue stars and discolorations

sally j taylor, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: Unfortunately I have experienced the same problems with this sony wega after 5 years of use it developed a line of blue across the bottom of the screen. This appeared after the bad winter of 2010 when the local networks ran a continuous banner at the bottom of the screen for a week for school...

Don't waste your money

  • Summary: This TV is not worth it! My father-in-law bought this and used it for 2 years and in that two years had several problems (including the lamp) so he got a new tv and gave us this one.

Sony- not standing behind flawed design!!!!!!

theverve, Amazon
14 April 2011
  • Summary: I purchased a 47inch sony wega back in 2005,, set cost around $2000 bucks. I figured that i would make this large investment and have a quality set for 15-20yrs.This was hardly the case.I have had this set for 6yrs now and i am noticing a 1inch blue line that runs toward the bottom of the set.

optical block

Don C., Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: I purchased a Sony KDF-42WE655 in either 2004-2005. I now have blue dots on the screen. I was told by Sony that this may be a problem with the optical block. Apparently after doing some research Sony has a problem with some of their TV's having this problem.

Samuel P. Kuntz, Amazon

  • Summary: I wouldnt buy one of these. I just replaced the bulb after less than 3 years of use. It is between $120 and $180 for the bulb. RIDICULOUS!! Picture and sound are good, but who can afford this much maintenance on a flippin TV for cryin out loud!!
