Great looking TV

It is way too heavy. once it's in place, don't plan on moving it around. The speaker sounded like it was blown, so the repair guy came to check it out and said it was his fourth TV of that model, he has been called on, for the speakers sounding blown. he

Significant Problems


Great quality picture, particularly in HD. We purchased and XBR and found that in fact the picture quality of this model was just as good if not better

Although a big fan of Sony and had several Sonys over the years with no quality problems, after about 3 months, a noticeable fade started to appear on the upper left hand corner of the screen. 7 Months later the TV would not turn on, this was too late to

Regular TV looks horrible, HD, DVD, XBX looks amazing


The HD looks amazing on this TV. Has plenty of inputs. DVD's, XBOX, Gamecube all look amazing

Excellent picture detail and sounds like a home theater without the extra speakers


My 16 year old 27" TV (not Sony) needed replaced. I compared TV sets for 3 months then I found this TV (32HS510) on display. It had the best picture and sound of any other TV. I determined (this time) I was going to purchase a real TV. Words cannot ...

Excellent picture, sound, PIP, Indexing, beautiful cabinet, simple to use, heavy-duty.

HS510 is not what you need if you move often
