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.
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.
