"For under $1,500.00, it's a great value now."5.0 starson by AJR1775
Pros: Good value at it's current market price.
Cons: Non, wish the blacks were a bit better but have to step up at a price jump that is pretty big for LED. You're better off buying a P55VT50 but you'll get that watching from "behind a sheet of glass" feel that I don't like with Plasmas.
Summary: Can't go wrong with this TV now at the moment. Smart and 3D aspects are good but IMO these are ancillary features. You can get Panasonic Plasmas in this price range that will deliver better inky blacks but the difference really isn't all that great and the Sony's color presentation is better I think. This LED-LCD TV does not suffer from the same lighting issues that plague the LG & Samsungs. Horizontal color uniformity is pretty spot on for a 55" LED-LCDs and only noticeable in the most extreme corners. This TV in my opinion is superior in the Blu-ray and HD channel playback department when compared to the similarly priced Panasonics that are well rated. Best TV in the $1,500.00 price right now....certainly not the case 6 to 8 months ago when the asking price was higher. Give it three more months and the price may fall a bit more before its pulled with the new lines coming in making it an even better value.
