"Awesome TV, with built in HD over the air"4.5 starson by mbennette
Pros: built-in HD over the air, clear picture
Cons: eye level required for best pic, no SD Card
Summary: I have had this TV for 6 months now, and I have absolutely love it. Initially I was hesitant to spend the money on a TV, in addition to a Sony name, but it was worth it. I compared this TV to the Panasonic and Samsung for a long time, and absolutely feel this is the clearest. The built-in HD over the air is a HUGE plus. I only pay $14 for Basic Cable (lowest) and prior to this TV I only got about 30 channels. With this TV, I get 80 channels including 15 HD channels. The pictures is extremely clear for DVD's and especially while watching HD in 720p or 1080i. Some downfalls are: 1) does not take the SD memory card for photo sharing, 2) slow start up time (15 seconds) or slight delay when switching to HD mode) 3) the TV is best when watching eye level. My house has a built in media center that is higher than eye level when sitting, so I must angle the TV down. But I would get more out of it if it was eye level 4) black/dark scenes are a little weak. But despite the downfalls, the TV has so many strengths that it beats all of these and competitors. I LOVE this TV and totally adds to the Home Theatre or HD experience. No regrets!
