"Researched the larger LCDs for about a year. I have a 40" Samsung that has given good service and still looks good after about two years or so. "Enjoyed/loved the tv while it still luck... must have purchased the lemon. Lasted just over a month...

I love this TV. It is the second Bravia LCD. My first one (a 32 inch) still works and I am moving it to another room. I love the interface for the TV. This is a very nice LCD TV for the price. I had an opportunity to see the Samsung 8500 and Sony XBR8; they are definitely better.

After comparing about a dozen high def televisions the Sony Bravia series stood out. We needed a non-reflective screen.

Bought this tv for mostly gaming. Great color and response time. Slight video lag, but easily ignorable. I am an average guy, and have no interest in giving a good report to justify my choice. I must say that to this day.

If i had the money, I would stick one of these in every room of the house, including the office. Amazing picture, replaced a 2 month old KDL-40S5100. Well, to start with, this was delivered without being double boxed, etc., and the top was open (remote was hanging out). There has to be a better way.
