Summary: Biggest Disappointment Ever! The TV lasted just over a year before the thing started to reboot randomly, after several reboots I noticed banding across the screen mostly in the lower third. I have now owned the TV for just over two years and I'm about to sling it into the dumpster - the banding is terrible. After being a Sony fan for years and being told there's nothing I can do, will pretty much make this experience my last with Sony products.
Terrible TV, very disappointed. Banding everywhere...

Summary: Well, sadily I am not at all happy with this extremely expensive purchase. Easily the most expensive item yet and it was completely regretible. First off, this TV looks no better than my 6 year old Samsung. Second of all, my older TV does not have bandling. What is banding you ask? I did not know what it as either until I purchased this Sony TV. Banding is a problem with the screen where large bands that run from top to bottom appear darker than the rest of the screen.
Summary: I picked Sony over other brands for the brand it use to be, after getting this TV I compare Sony to the OFF BRANDS from China that have no quality control. I was very excited to get the TV. The TV itself is very nice on the exterior, and has a TON of options. I replaced it with a 46" OLED Samsung from 4 years ago.
5 stars For My Viewing Area- Revised read full review.

Summary: There are several reviews on Amazon with conflicting opinions. I believe that has more to do with each person's individual tastes/ set up. For me, this TV is absolutely perfect. The color reproduction is extremely accurate, the motion handling is nearly perfect and does not create and weird SOE (soap opera effect). Fist off let me tell you about my set up.
Summary: I have bought 2 sony tv's. A 46 inch and 55 inch. Both tv's developed a line from top to bottom. Both TV's were under factory warrantee. I had them checked out by sear's repair. I was told the screen was gone in both and it usually cost too much to repair so sony will probably just replace the tv's. I contacted sony and was told the tv's were over 6 months old (8 months)and they would replace them with 2 refurbished tv's.
