Rated 5 out of 5 by DeBruce There Is Only One TV: Sony!
At this point, I don't even look at other brands when I decide to purchase a television. Bought my first Sony in 1972, and still have it. It was a 13' portable for my dorm room, and through years of abuse, camping trips, etc., . . . yes, it still works perfectly. When the first HD tv's came out, I bought the big 36" cathode ray tube Sony. Dazzling, and yes, still have it, and the kids use it for their gaming tv. When I upgraded, I bought the top of the line Sony XBR 9 flatscreen, a 42", which was huge, at the time. Dazzling, and still in use in the master bedroom. And, our newer XBR 900 is our primary TV at the moment, a 54", but we are currently building a new great room, and are looking forward to purchasing a new XBR 900 in a more appropriate size for a 36 x 28 space, hopefully a 70-80", and maybe a 4K. The great thing about our Sony's, is they never seem to die, and we are still using them all, including a 21" in the kitchen. You won't find clearer more life-like viewing than a Sony XBR, period. Nothing compares. Sony forever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SolidState9311 Good PQ but not too smart
I got this as a 4K upgrade from my old XBR-HX909 and like the HX909 I got it for the picture quality. I'm happy with the picture quality but not too excited about the side speakers. The side speakers make it looks a lot bigger than it really is. I wish the speakers were detachable.
For a "Smart" TV, Sony have to be the worst on the market, in my opinion. The DLNA is great and works as expected. The Netflix app works just as well as the PS3, we don't have to use our PS3 for Netflix anymore. We just use it now for Blu-Ray, VUDU and games for the kids.
The down side to this TV is the apps are terrible. The apps are just a long list of nothing. No directory or category to list the apps; you have to slowly scroll through this long and painful list and try the app to see if it's worth your time. So far I have not found anything worth my time or the time to find it. The weather app even was junk. The built-in apps are also terrible. For example, the picture app is unusable. Can't accesses the DLAN server for to display personal pictures or music when the TV is idle. It's like Sony list a lot of stuff as features on the marketing sheet but when you try to use the features there is nothing usable. It like one of those fake building that have the front but it's really just there for the camera but there is no back to the building. This was the case on my old Sony and after 5 years sony Smart TV still is lagging. I now have to buy a Google Chrome to make the TV Smart.
I say I'm disappointed in the Smart part of the TV after playing with other smart TV to compare the sony to. If it wasn't for the fact of good picture quality, I would have gotten a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lowrider perfect picture
yes, your picture is perfect. except your product doesn't last long. I have a 2009 Bravia its the one next to the top of the line. I'm having bad trouble with the screen when I turn it on. It takes 15 to 20 minutes for the picture to get where I can view the television. Your product just isn't what it use to be. Not happy with it.
