"excellent value for Sony product."4.0 starson by CRTKL-i
Pros: pic quality,input connections,$price$-calibrati on options
Cons: takes a dedicated effort to learn pic adj. Speaker sound not in par with overall t.v-,But this is usually overcome with use of home theatre stereo set up as I am using.
Summary: Did the usual obsessive reviews & comparisons any a/v phile would do ,before choosing this t.v., With the final in person visual, not letting specs influence my choice, this t.v won even above the XBR2 40in.(taking price diff in account).Pleasantly surprised on how satisfied I am with pic quality. No ghosting to remark on. No so called clouding. colors are great .I picked up t.v for $1888.88 at best buy..Great value ,could not find a contender for this price that even compared. save yourself a lot of time and consider this product before u buy anything...
