"A Sony: wont disappoint, or break the bank."4.5 starson by stevodundun
Pros: color accurancy, dead on. black levels, superb. viewing angle, not an issue. sound, fine (but i use my Polk 5.1). price, outstanding. quality, IT'S A SONY! contrast, good. Connectivity, :).
Cons: REALLY dark scenes, so-so (The Underworld Trilogy was a bit difficult to watch, as on most TVs).
Summary: I really wish this TV was rated higher than it has by ConsumerReports, Cnet, or PCMag. While this is considered the "mid-line" of the Sony LCD's, I could not be happier with my $470 purchase from Best Buy. And for those thinking about buying a Samsung, i give you this: While Samsung has been leap-frogging the competition for the last five years, Sony has been a mainstay in home-entertainment for well over two decades. Their solid releases year-in and year-out have forever solidified Sony as THE brand when it comes to TV's.
