"After a long search, we went with Sony."4.0 starson by chilliwachad
Pros: The picture is crisp. Colors are good. We like the menu layouts and the options offered. When I switch from "General" picture mode to "Sports", or "Games", or "Cinema", the difference is noticeable. The blacks are surprisingly good.
Cons: The sound levels need some adjusting for watching an HD television signal. We had some trouble hearing dialogue, but were able to make the necessary adjustment. The deepest blacks do tend to vacillate between black and dark blue.
Summary: We really like this TV. After weeks of comparison shopping and reading reviews and tracking sales in the area, I walked into a London Drugs and found this for $100 less than I had previously seen it advertised. When I brought it home, it was super easy to set up, (we have it up on a mantle, so I couldn't comment on the ease of mounting it on a wall, except to say that it sounds quite painful), and the manual was very easy to follow. TV in 720p looks great and movies in 1080p are really great. We are contemplating expanding our home audio options, but the TV speakers themselves work nicely after some adjusting to your preferred levels. The "Cinema" setting for movies looks and sounds amazing, and the other options for "Sports", "Games", etc... are cool, too. Great TV for the price.
