"Not a good HD picture"1.5 starson by iLikeTV
Pros: 24p True Cinema, sound. This is the one good thing about this model. BluRay DVD's on my PS3 look amazing. The best I've seen a BluRay ever look. The speakers on this set are above average.
Cons: Picture, lack of settings. I mean there are settings to go through and tweak, but there has been NO calibration i have found to make this set worth buying.
Summary: Bottom line, I would NOT recommend this TV. The picture quality is way lower than other 1080i/720P models out there. In fact, I had a Sharp Aquos which broke during shipment to my warranty carrier. I was reimbursed the full amount of the unit and bought this one. The Sharp was about 3 years old (I forget the model) and had a far and away better picture. When the camera is filming from far way, like sports and broadcasts of the like, the picture becomes grainly and there are some ghostly affects when images are fast moving. However, when you are watching closeup broadcasts like the news, the faces are detailed and look pretty good. Again he 24p makes BluRay movies look amazing and the speakers are pretty good....not tinny. But I cannot get over the fact that of the grainy picture and that my much older set with the same resolution, and lower contrast ration had a much better picture. Other Sony's may be great, but this one is not. I am returning it and going with a Vizio 37" full 1080p. The specs for the price are great and I've seen them in person and the do not disappoint.
