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
Summary: I've had this model for 4 years with absolutely no problems. Purchased at Sears. I did not use the remote that came with the set because i have cable. The set is black and very sleek. The picture is sharp and I have enjoyed every station and every type of program. The only thing that could use improving is the depth of sound. With such an excellent viewing experience you would think the sound would be compatible.
Summary: Ive had this set 3 years now and it is a winner. Beautiful picture, menu is simple and easy to use. Ive never had a problem with it. The only negative is that theres no RCA audio out, so if your using an antenna you cant output the sound to your stereo. Otherwise; Recommended.
Summary: I have had this TV for about a year and a half, and couldn't be happier with it. The color is amazing (especially blu-ray) and the blacks are truly black. I have a Sony blu-ray player ( ) and the bravia sync makes it so much easier to use, since I can use one remote for both devices. The sound is definitely not that great, but I have the sound running out through a stereo, so it's no problem for me. I will definitely buy another Sony TV.
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!
