Great TV So Far
We have this TV for a month and a half so far and it is the best TV we have ever owned to date. Great picture, features, and connectivity options. Only concern is when I installed it with a wall mount, the predrilled and tapped wall mount holes are for M6 screws, not for the stronger M8 size normally used for flat panel TVs of this size and weight. I believe this is the weak point in the wall mount setup. I will contact support and let them know of my concern on this.

Three reviews so far, none of them get posted.
So this is my forth review of this set, but the first three reviews never got posted by Sony.
I'm on my 2nd set so far. Both have banding, and the first had a large white spot in the middle left of the set that showed up really predominantly when the TV had dark colors on it.
This second set has a better picture, but the set they sent me is cracked. So two sets so far, both broken.
The other huge downside to this set so far is the left and right edges. On both I have received so far the edges are dark like at the edge of a projection screen. Not good for an LCD. I would really like to know if others have this issue, or if it was just my two bad ones.
My prior reviews had much more content, but I'm tired of rewriting. Copy and pasting just gets ignored too.

I bought this TV, not for the 3D or the smart features, but strictly for the picture itself. I put it up against a Sharp 70", same specs., and the Sharp was blown away. I'm the type of guy that likes screwing with the color features to make the picture better. Not on this one. I'm actually scared to change anything for fear of messing up the amazing picture that comes right out of the box. Sony had a bad name for a few years, but have obviously stepped it up and have produced a TV that is worthy of the Sony name. For this amazing price, you can't go wrong. Don't let it pass you by. Cheers!

The only reason I am giving this 5 stars is that the black levels and colors are amazing. There is 0 flashlighting or clouding on this set, which is a HUGE deal to me.
The only thing I have noticed with this set is that the panel has some vertical banding through the middle of the screen, which can be seen at times depending on what is on the screen, or during some panning shots and is slightly annoying, but otherwise this TV is one of the best I've seen.
Attempted to contact esupport via online, but serial number does not exist and when I call I just get rude agents becuase I have had some issues with a past TV model.
