Sony 55" 3D 240Hz LED
Got this TV New Years day. So far its great but huge minus it that Sony does not support live streaming of NHL hockey if I new this when I bought this TV I would have never bought it. For a smart TV its NOT very smart. 2 thumb down for Sony

Bought the tv before Christmas 2011 (as a surprise for the fam), love the clarity of picture. Ease of use is awesome, it synched easy with the rest of my Sony systems.
Love the overall performance except the sound, you have to put the volume control almost to the highest setting to hear it good. I guess its part of marketing to add on the sound bar. I love my Sony products, happy with it so far. Hope it last for years like most of my Sony purchases.

Challenging, but Rewarding!
HDMI connection renders awesome quality & sound, provided correct AV settings are tweaked. Smart, low impact appearance & light weight. Found TV reboots related to sensitive HDMI cable connection, yet some unexplained reboots still occur. Feature-rich options are a plus, but not always User-friendly when Navigating. Different routes may be annoyingly required to initiate basic tasks. The onscreen Manual is great, while color adjustments seem limited. Sound quality is good when Volume set to greater than half its capability. Best viewing is directly in front, while gradual degradation in quality appears 20 degrees or more from ideal front view. EX: Side viewing displays Black colors as green, with a hint of an opaque softness. Simply put, colors may be distorted and sharpness is reduced. For this, buy a Full Motion mount to reposition your angle of view & problem solved. This tv is not worth giving up on, despite weaknesses. There is a Component Jack add-on, which can be used for Wii Games. Ours presented hideous colors as the Blue in RGB, was not working AT ALL. A replacement is on order. Not a common problem, but do hook up a device via component cables and check yours out. Finger prints and smudge removal is a lot harder task than necessary. We found a YELLOW microfiber towel that works great with water ONLY. Other microfiber towels were horrendous even with mild soap. What a simple task gone wild! Still, this is a great tv! With a host of connections for HD camcorders & digital SLR's, photo & HD video quality is superb! This tv immediately recognizes any device connected, displaying photos via full screen slideshow or manual control. Camera HD video IS NOT always affected by viewing angles outside the ideal front seat view mentioned earlier. Camera HD video & sound are AWESOME! 3D viewing looks good, as setup is supposed to be easy via a 3D button. Operative word is "supposed". Double-check settings to ensure best settings and size of video. For the ultimate experience, DO invest in a quality Home Theater System, and not a Soundbar. Sync capability with other Sony products is flawless, but serves to multiply your options and confusion navigating. Admittedly, the challenge with all the Options, adds to the experience and insight that this tv is about as AWESOME as they come! Yet, one should expect Sony standards at this level to have resolved many issues faced.
