Stay Away from this model

Even though the TV's box has a big "Dolby Digital" logo, and marketing specification claim DD, this TV cannot output DD 5.1 audio when using its ATSC or QAM tuner. I don't know how Sony can get away with this, promising something but not delivering it.

Great picture quality

No Dolby Digital 5.1 audio even though the box has a big DD logo

Good tv EXCEPT for ACE


Great tv out of the box EXCEPT for the Auto Contrast Enhancer feature which is VERY annoying during viewing... How does dimming the screen enhance your movie experience? Its more of a distraction than an enhancement.

120hz, good image quality

ACE is annoying

My first HDTV


I am pleased with this TV. My daughter recommended Sony and I will agree! Out of the box it worked flawlessly and was a cinch to set up. I got this TV because it was 120hz.
