Very good

 

Picture is great and motion is good. Sometimes, it shows that I have an HDMI-3 connection, which I don't have. Have not used the HDMI -1 input yet, although it is connected to a receiver, but thanks for the cable warning. For the guy complaining about...

Remote design lacking

Stay Away from this model

 

The picture looks great when it stays consistent but that is not what this tv does well. There is a software update that was designed to fix this problem but even after the update it still changes the lighting constantly. This is really noticeable when...

Consumer review by:

FALSE MARKETING

 

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

Consumer review by:

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.

Awesome

None
