Excerpt: Sony is well known brand, they have a good reputation in the consumer electronics market, unfortunately their range of TV's don't share their good reputation, and this model is no exception. Starting on a positive note, the TV uses the XrossMediaBar very similar to the Operating System (OS) used by the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable video game systems. So it'll be instantly familiar and easy to use if you've had experience with those devices.
Pros: Uses a good menu system with plenty of additional features
Cons: Picture quality can be lacking, refresh rate seems low
It's a good experience but wouldn't recommend to anyone who's a gamer

Summary: The tv isn't bad but it does suck when I have to put the volume to 50 to hear it. However,if I stand on the side of the tv the volume on 50 seem louder. Sony need to find a way install the sound bar some where on the front. But I like the television I purchase, I use it all the time.
Summary: Bought this in a supermarket with an eye catching price reduction. Great picture but noticed very quickly that the sound skipped or missed out words during speech ... nothing to do with bad language filter. Persevered with lead changes etc but to no avail. Returned within 28 days and was readily replaced ... but the same issue is found with this replacement TV. Going back for a second time ... but wont be chancing a third one!
Summary: Perhaps this is because I purchased the floor display, on sale and got an additional 10% off because it was a display model but I can only give it two stars. This replaced a failed Westinghouse (26" 1080i LED/LCD)TV (which I will review elsewhere) and given it's a Sony, I was confident in the product. I am, however, surprised at the low quality of a few things. I will state that for a 720 picture, the quality is pretty good considering I went from a 1080i.
