"It's a great TV / monitor for a small space"4.5 starson by icedcornholio
Pros: Can be used in 3D with your Xbox 360 or PC; picture is goregous and Sony Bravia-like. Two HDMI inputs and one Component input. Audio is decent -- better than I expected but not home theater quality.
Cons: No remote? what was sony thinking? Also, no TV tuner so you'll have to bring your own access (I view TV through my Tivo)
Summary: Don't let this official review fool you, it's a much better TV than the reviewer implies.
Yes, there is no Cable IN, so you'll have to watch TV through another source, like a Cable converter box via HDMI or a Tivo. There's also no remote control but anyone on this site most likely has some sort of universal remote (Harmony) or buys the PS3 Blu-Ray remote which controls the TV, so it's not really a bad thing.
While it's neat that the HDMI signal can control the power (you shut off the PS3 or 360, it will shut off the TV and vice versa, it did seem unable to read the Tivo via HDMI unless I hit the tivo button first. I worked around this by using component instead and turned off the HDMI power control.
These are minor things. the 3D effect is great and the Simulview is a great idea. I hope more games have this, but right now selection is limited.
You can play CoD Black Ops on your 360 in 3D, you just have to change the 3D mode to side-by-side. It's very easy to do. There's a 3d button on the blu ray remote to change the type of 3D.
And of course, the size. 24" is great for my office space and perfect. It's replacing a 24" so I'm okay with it.
If you're looking for a 50" this isn't the TV for you. You get a game, glasses and a 3D TV for under $500. You can't beat it...and it's a SONY television. Did I mention how good 1080p looks -- you can tell the difference even on a 24" from 720 to 1080.
So, don't let the review fool you. This is a great set priced right.
