"This TV great until it fails before it's 2 years old"1.5 starson by Kansas24
Pros: Picture was great, loved it.
Cons: The panel is going out on mine (few lines of pixels dying 2" from top of screen) and it will cost $1762.00 to fix a @1200.00 TV when it's only 19 months old. Sony offered me a meager discount on a new TV, but didn't offer to help fix the old one.
Summary: Would not buy Sony again for all the tea in China. I will probably go Samsung at some time... after I finish paying for my trashed Sony. This TV was great, it just doesn't last. If I see the name Sony on anything --I won't be buying it. It used to mean a quality item, now it means unhelpful customer service and some shady business practices. If I take their "discount" on a new TV, I have to mail them my serial numbers etc peeled off the back of my old TV making it appear basically stolen --AND-- I have to release them from all liability. I dunno... I think it's pretty awful when the part to fix a TV costs more than the TV itself. Pretty sad business practices. Think twice before you buy Sony.
