Having had this set for about one month, I am very impressed with its performance.
One recommendation though, it's a good idea to get a surround sound, or just an external audio system as the audio from the TV is relatively poor if mounted on a stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cragsleeper One of the best of 2010
The first and most obvious advantage is this set's black levels - when it displays a black screen it looks like it is off, and during films any black bars that are present are indistinguishable from the black bezel. I am still amazed. Colors are rich and deep with good uniformity. Do not let the Smooth MotionFlow turn you off on this set; if the motion seems strange while viewing this set at the store it's probably because they have it on. Ask them to change to to Clear1 or off. After calibrating settings to taste I finally have an image that impressed my videophile friends. 3D is fun and the 2D-to-3D conversion mode is a little better than expected. There is a little crosstalk, but I see it on competing models as well.
There is some blooming but it is a minor issue, though it does become highly visible if viewing the set from an extreme angle. Also, the price is a bit steep considering some competitors have lower-priced sets with similar specs. However, I have personally compared this TV to two other local dimming sets from competitors and this was the best picture quality.
Love this TV!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruckner Excellent TV
I had been searching and researching for 3 months for my new TV. I did not want a 3D TV at this time as technology is still in its infancy. I looked at LEDs and plasmas all around. I went to my local Sony Store just to see this TV. I took along several of my blue ray and non blue ray pictures that I use to test TVs. As soon as I saw the picture quality (the store person let me set the picture parameters to default) I was in love with this TV. When I got home, my wife fell in love with its looks and with the picture quality. I have been a fan of Sony TVs all my life, but on this occasion I was planning to buy another brand until I saw this TV. At home, the picture quality is much better than at the store and it fits perfectly in my home theater setup (I am an audiophile and have invested quite a lot of money on the audio side). Congratulations to Sony on this excellent product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jayg what was sony thinking !!!!!!!
This is the best TV available in market today in terms of looks and picture quality. The LED backlight technology is amazing and produces great black levels..
Unfortunately, this tv does not have following essential component to use the features sony claims it has i--
1. NO 3D emitter
2. No 3D glasses
3. No built in WIFI
All the above mentioned things have to be purchased seperately. The WIFI adapter is Properitery.
Also sony claims this TV to be DLNA compliant but that feature does not work yet. May be future firmware update will make it working!!!

The 2D performance is near flawless. The 3D is the best compared to other companies. I'm very happy to have purchased this TV.

Great set! Perfect picture and clarity when set up proper and viewed more or less straight on. Still suffers side angle color & contrast fall off that seems systemic to LED technology. Have one in the master bedroom and another in the video game room. Sony image quality is second to none! This model uses the Bravia 3 Pro engine to add additional image detail and edge clarity. Awesome! A real step up from the KDL-60EX700 I have in the main room.

Replaced a 15 year old XBR rear projection TV and I'm seriously impressed. Beautiful picture on all content including 1080P 24. Smooth and clear with great dynamic range. More features than you can shake a stick at and network features (youtube, netflix) work flawlessly. Could have a few more rear inputs (only 2 HDMI on back - would like to have more since I'm wall mounting and side entry is more visible.) Excellent product if you can afford it.
