Pros - Great picture
- 3D in the home with a small footprint
- Slim profile
- Multiple inputs
- Respectable sound
Cons - No remote (primarily for volume and switching inputs)
Summary I was ecstatic to bring this display home and hook it up to a second 80 GB fat Playstation in the bedroom. It worked fantastically, both with 3D and without. But after 1 month it died. I'd read about the defect, and on some Sony sites it is no longer for sale, but I thought I'd dodged that bullet. For perspective and GT5 fans, I'd gone from start to Level 20 on Gran Turismo 5 by the time this display no longer continued to function. When I turn it on, I get a blue light on the bottom, then a green light, then a red light, then a series of blinking red lights. No picture. No indication of activity in the LCDs. This is unacceptable on Sony's part, when there are clearly so many buyers who experience the same thing. Stop selling the damn thing! Start listening when people call in to describe the issue. And most importantly, fix the problem.
Pros Picture quality is amazing.Decent speakers for gaming/movies.Comes with 3d glasses,3D gameplay.comes with more then just 1 hdmi. 240 refresh rate,backlighting, 1080p,Colors:16.7 million,1920 x 1080 res,& xbox 360 compatible :P.
Cons no remote came with & maybe some audio cables would of been nice. but, heck over all i dont care that much lol.
Summary This became better then i thought, i wasnt expecting this to over do the monitor i was using before for gaming/movies by this much. Real vivid & amazing picture qaulity.And it comes with 3D setup & i dont have to spend mess load to get a 3D TV. I was drooling when i seen the huge difference on the monitor i had used for xbox 360 and hook this up. Skyrim & BF3 & Black Ops 2 looked like a dream. Bought a lcd monitor tuner with remote & for watching tv ($35), so now its gaming/watching tv/sports/ blu-ray movies....all for ($200 & freeshipping). They make another one for the next system down the road, i'll be looking into getting one as well.Its not huge like a 40'-50' but on what you can do with all of this for the price, how can you go wrong. I love mine and didnt expect it to be as good as it is now.
Pros Compact size, just big enough for office/den. Decent quality video, easay to setup and use. Big fan of 3d tech - this is great entry point.
Cons Issues, that common to ALL units:
1. Audio - turning up the volume distorts it greatly. Have to sit close and keep it down.
2. Video - Black screens while playing (Often)
3. Blinking RED LED OF DEATH- Sony can't fix. Refurb units last 2 days.
Summary DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE BUYING. KEEP EXTRA $300 TO BUY A SPARE, OR JUST BUY TWO NOW.
I bought my unit in early Feb during the after-Christmas sale period. Best Buy had this for $399 before the holiday, and only $299 after - in a combo with a 3D movie, Game, and Extra pair of glasses. It seemed like an excellent deal at the time.
I played it off an on for about a month and watched maybe 2 3d movies. Then I went off to work, off to vacation.. Came home this summer and turned it on. Used it for about 4 hours and then shut it off. The next day I tried to turn it on, and nothing.. Just a little blinking red light. I went online to research it - I figured there would be a decoder to tell me the difference in 2 blinks vs 3 blinks (mine blinks 3 times) and was hopeful this would lead me to an answer so I could fix it and keep enjoying it. Unfortunately, endless Google searches kept pointing me back to the same discussion across myriad message boards - EVERYONE has had this problem, and NO ONE has a solution. You can try calling Sony and there's a 50/50 chance (and that's being nice, because we assuming that either they help or they don't - in real statistics, maybe it's a 20/80 chance or worse...). By law, they have to honor a 1yr warranty on electronics, but good luck convincing them! On top of that, most people are sent a refurbished unit that lasts anywhere from 2 days to 2 months :( Guys, I'm calling for a class action on this one! Either we get a TV that works, or we get a full refund. I don't need a 20lb paperweight on my dresser.
"GREAT PRODUCT!!!"on by Dave_Baker
Pros -Super clear display
-Sound not as bad as people say(unless you're an audiophile or something).Headphones are not expensive.
-Works with xbox, pc and cable box
-Comes with UNCHARTED 3 and MOTORSTORM APOCALYPSE
Cons -no remote.But you can buy the new
-only one pair of 3d glasses
Summary The display is like a mirror honestly, but the glare doesn't affect me. I heard such screens make picture quality better, I don't know for sure but believe me the display is super clear. The Cnet reviewer says screen size is small, that's true but not for everyone. It isn't meant for the living room OBVIOUSLY, I'm in a dorm and for me it's PERFECT.The auto-off triggers quickly....lol who cares , not a con for me. The positives outweigh the negatives this isn't a average product it's great, if you can afford it. I'm a gamer, a student and it soothes my needs. GREAT PRODUCT.
Pros Good quality LCD, FULL Screen 2 player mkde
Cons Sony should have this capability on thejr mainstream, sets as initial adopters are gaming enthusiasts will want a bigger screena nd to double it as a mainstream tv.
Summary The reviewer clearly doesn't unserstand the target audience for this set. Gameroom TV which you set once but not a TV. I agree on the remote
