by BlueWaterSWO Clean crisp color ... Great viewing
Just moved to the Honolulu area and picked this up for the house ... No regrets after 3-weeks of viewing everything from the news to pre-season football. The TV is super light weight for its size, 45lbs with its stand, and very easy to set up. Viewing is a pleasure, great color and brightness with a wide viewing angle. I paired it with the SWF-BR100 wireless sub made for the Bravia series, so the sound was kicked up a few notches as well. The sub set-up was plug and play as well; however, Sony does have a good sub set-up menu in the TVs settings menu that allows you set as much base as you can stand. All-in-all, this is a great TV, especially at this price point, and the added wireless sub makes it an even better viewing experience ... I would Highly recommend this TV to both family and friends.

I bought this TV to replace a slowly dying 52" DLP TV. I looked at all the TV's and felt that the Sony had the best picture quality for it's size and price. The TV was amazingly easy to install and set-up and when I finished setting it up I was thoroughly amazed at how fantastic the TV picture looked. Crystal clear, bright, natural looking colors. I felt like I could reach into the screen and touch whatever I was looking at. Connecting to the Internet was also a breeze and navigating thru the menus was a snap also. I was very impressed and quite pleased with my purchase. I only have two disappointments with this Sony TV, but I was somewhat prepared for one of them after reading reviews of this model before I purchased. The sound quality was less than what I would expect from Sony. The sound has a very hollow feel to it, as if standing in an empty room. The speakers for the TV point downward rather than facing the viewer. When the TV is sitting on a cabinet, the sound reverberates off the cabinet top and sounds very weak and unappealing. I then mounted the TV on the wall and it vastly improved the quality of the sound but still a long way from what I would expect from a Sony. I finally attached the Sony to my surround sound system....problem solved!!!! The other disappointment was the Skype feature. The TV does not come with a webcam which I was aware of, but what I didn't know or realize was that the Sony TV "only" works with a "Sony" webcam. Sony only offers two webcams for their Bravia TV's and neither is very pleasing to look at. They both look like they were designed back in 1990.They are both large, obtrusive and neither has any glowing reviews. The better one of the two is very expensive for a webcam by todays standards, so it looks like I won't be able to use the Skyping feature on this TV. Other than these two disappointments, I couldn't be happier with this TV and would highly recommend it. I'm amazed every time I turn it on, I should have bought this TV sooner!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KenVtown Excellent Picture, Easy Set-Up
No problems setting up the TV. Beautiful picture. Effortless connection to Wi-Fi even though mine is an Apple Airport Extreme. The rest of the system includes an old Bose Lifestyle 25 surround sound system connected directly to the cable box, Comcast Xfinity box connected to TV via HDMI, an Apple TV to HDMI 2, and a Sony Blueray DVD connected to HDMI 3. Remote control is intuitive and built-in help screens are a quick way to find answers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaybird3 The very best HD TV!!!!
Very easy to set up, no trouble at all!!! The best picture as soon as I turned it on!!! Works great with the wireless internet!!! Works great with Apple TV!! I have really enjoyed the Sony HD TV!!! Movies are great on it and football is like you are at the game. All of my cameras, stereo equipment, head phones are Sony. My old Bravia TV was Sony, is at least 12 years old and still works great. More than pleased with the LED HD TV!!!!! Sony is the best!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rptucker Best HD TV in this price range as of 10/14/2014
Always enjoyed Sony products and this tv does not disappoint. I'm waiting for an OLED 4K at a reasonable price so I bought this KDL60w630b to hold me over. It's so nice I may not need the OLED. Well, not right now anyway.
Not much into the apps yet. The wifi setup was a breeze. I really only cared about the picture quality and this model IS the best bang for your buck. I have a 10 year old top of the line Sony HD tv and this low end Sony is so much better. Technology is a wonderful thing. Sony too!!!

Seems a fine TV: picture clear, no motion problems, remote is solid for this price level. Cleverly boxed, but no instructions on how to open it (delivery guys showed me). Also, if you can't find the stand parts, they are under the bottom/base styrofoam.

Very happy with the purchase. The picture is clear. The smart tv function is easy to set up with a wireless network and I haven't had issues streaming from Amazon Prime video (which is the only app that I've used). It has a Twitter function that I didn't find particularly useful. It's a neat idea to listen to the "twitterverse" when watching events, but I'd prefer to follow one of my lists, rather than have to search on a hash tag.
