2012 Christmas deal

 

I like the fact that this TV automatically will set the screen to the right size setting, depending on whether a TV channel is broadcasting in HD "widescreen" format or "square" ratio format (so you don't manually have to adjust the screen's width /...

Installed speaker were perfectly adequate for my own TV watching tastes. (And if your a real audiophile, you're going to connect the TV to expensive external speakers anyway.)

Poor Refurb

 

I had to buy an AV receiver to use my PC monitor as a TV because the HDMI sound signal from my blue-ray player wasn't strong enough to power the monitors speakers. Of course I now have much better sound, but, a very small (24") screen.

This TV worked well with the HDMI inputs.

This TV was a refurb that probably wasn't thoroughly checked before repackaging. The antenna/cable input to the TV tuner didn't work at all. I would have had to pay return shipping to have this repaired under the warranty. New Egg didn't have a...

Decent budget television

 

Overall, this is a decent TV for watching television and movies. Sony's provided software comes with more options than other entry level TVs. Motion performance is not good, but I can't tell if that's standard for an entry level LCD, or if I'm just...

Great contrast ratio. Decent amount of options for an entry level television

Motion performance is average at best. This will likely only become an issue if you watch sports or play fast paced video games. The response time becomes a particular issue when temperatures drop. During the winter, my apartment is about 10 degrees...

Sony Bravia as good as expected; superb

 

I have used Bravia TV's at work and have always been impressed with the picture quality. I finally bought one for myself and I am just as pleased. I have other top brand TV's and have been pleased, but this one is definitely the best.

Simple Set Up, Cost, Picture Quality, Sharpness

Only 2 HDMI Ports
