Absolutely love this tv! This replaced a '11 LG 60" plasma that had a faulty circuit board, out of warranty & not even 3 years old, so saved my pennies & got this wonderful tv. Looked really good out of the box but a bit on the vibrant side, so tweaked the picture settings & saved them via "custom." Internet connected immediately altho didn't buy this tv for it's apps but the Sony brand & reliability etc. Connected to hdmi2/arc so got audio from the apps via my avr system. TV is thin, thin bezel, very lightweight. Wasn't sure if it'd hold up to putting my Polk CSiA6 center channel on a shelf on top of tv, but managed to get it to work. Did test the tv audio & it sounded fine to me altho I've read complaints elsewhere. Remote is rather cheap looking compared to the LG or my Onkyo but not using it anyway, have a Harmony One. Stand would've looked better if it had been polished chrome & not matte silver. I'm looking forward to many happy years of viewing with this tv!

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.

by PleaseRespondSony Great TV until the glitches started
I bought the Sony KDL-60W630B Serial #5000554 in August of 2014, everything has been great until the last 3 weeks. I been getting glitches in the screen, I really want this tv to work out, I have had 2 prior Vizio TVs before with no problems, I switch to Sony to match my PS3 and PS4. I hope this is just a software issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Doc Best Choice for bright rooms
I researched several brands including LG, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and Vizio. For picture brightness, contrast ratio and true color representation this Sony was among the very best. However, the most important factor beyond that was screen reflectivity. Since this TV was to be in a room with lots of windows, Sony was the single best choice - offering the least reflective screen. Actually viewing in the store helped confirm this, and I could not be happier with the real results in my own home. The "smart" setup was simple and makes internet video streaming a breeze. The access to video and sound optimization for sports, cinema and other settings is easy to change and works very well (one button push for "football" settings, and other settings require only another selection from a drop down list). Sony's attention to operational performance and ease of use still makes them the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OutbackJoe Outstanding TV
So far this is an outstanding TV. This TV replaces a 6 year old 46" Bravia. We have it mounted on the livingroom wall next to and across from 5 big floor to ceiling windows. This TV is still easy to watch. The antiglare screen keeps reflections to a minimum and are only noticeable when the TV is off. Of course the picture is better in a darkened room but it has the power to be watched without closing the drapes.
This TV has the best range of color and the black is a very deep and true black. No hint of a grey cast. This makes everything very realistic.
First setup is easy, the TV guides you thru everything needed to begin watching your new set. Then comes the fun of setting up a custom picture, this TV makes that fairly easy, with a very easy to use menu and help section that explains exactly what every setting will do. It takes time to setup but its well worth it.
Also using this TV to watch videos online is fun and easy. Setting up and watching You Tube is a snap. You can also use Android devices as very fancy remote and guide.
Overall, very happy with this TV.
A TV lovers, TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ocruiser Great TV, with great appearance.
Really good picture, nice and slim frame around the screen.
I think the Sony TV looks less "plasticky", than most of the competition.
I don't love the remote that came with the TV, it has the volume and channel buttons on the bottom, which doesn't feel natural in the hand. So I am using a Logitech Harmony 700.
The app store is a little limited, and the menu slightly clumsy.
But I also have a Samsung TV, and there is room for improvement there too.
The built in speakers are surprisingly good.
Overall I am very happy with the TV, I chose this model because the 4K tv's are still too expensive, and there is very little 4K material on the marked yet.
I compared picture quality in the store with many high end TV's, and side by side this TV is as good as any out there, it also has less soap opera effect than my Samsung.
I have owned many Sony products over the years, and they have been very reliable, hopefully this TV will prove to be the same.
Overall a great value for my use..
Will stand out a bit if mounted on the wall.
Limited app store.
Remote is a little clumsy.
App menu could be more intuitive to navigate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gagu Perfect Picture with Poor Control & Instructions
The Visuals are great however the there is only one way to get to sound to external amp and speakers.
Not at all user friendly and the information section is sorely lacking.
Really could use some help!

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!!!
