Great TV, Internet Functions Lacking
2 Star Review   By NHWoodsman on Sony - Official Store - Apr 7, 2012   

I bought this particular HDTV because it was advertised as being "Internet" functional. Although the picture quality itself is good, the "Internet" function is almost not worth the time, money or trouble to try to utilize. I have had 10X better luck on internet TV's while staying at hotels. You are far better off hooking a laptop into the HDMI port if you want internet content on this set. The Internet accessible sites such as Netflix & Crackle are ok, but are limited. Can't wait until SONY catches up with online technology. I guess it will be a few years until there is true Internet function in their TV's,

5 Star Review   By Steven007700 on Sony - Official Store - Dec 13, 2011   

I really liked the TV's video rendering (refresh rate) and the video quality is amazing. I would recommend this TV to any one and also the variety of online streaming this provides.

Yahoo apps do not work
1 Star Review   By pdxPhotoman on Sony - Official Store - Nov 26, 2011   

If you are interested in the Internet functions on this set, look elsewhere. Yahoo apps, including Flickr, are preloaded by Sony and if you have a Yahoo account, you can sign in and find your account with no trouble. Thereafter, however, you cannot log in without a hard reset of the system. Repeated calls, emails, and chat sessions with Sony are unhelpful. The best advice I've had is the hard reset, but this is extremely time-consuming and very frustrating. It is impractical to go through this every time you want to display your photos on Flickr. For this reason, this set is a loser. Avoid it.

3 months now
5 Star Review   By Snoose on Sony - Official Store - Sep 21, 2011   

I have had the device for 3 months & I am still very happy. One thing that occured was that out of the blue the tv would do a soft re-boot (3 xs) and then shut down. There then appeard what I would call a code indicator on the bottom left of the machine. blinked 8 times within a 3 second time period. Cycling power had no impact. However, a very patient technician worked me through setup and the problem is no more. When quizzed abouot the problem he said that this bug had just been reported (2 or 3 weeks?) and that re-initializing of setup would fix it. I inquired as to if I would experience this again and his answer was a firm no. If it does I will be back on this forum to report it. So, with that as a back-drop, knowing what I know now, would I buy this unit again? Absolutely. This is a good piece of equipment AND the over the phone help was out standing. However, I sure would like access to the codes......not to do brain surgery, just to know what they mean. Apparently, 8 blinks within a 3 second time period indicates an issue with updates. Good machine, to this timeframe anyway.

Great TV for the Price
5 Star Review   By infamousprince on Sony - Official Store - Sep 11, 2011   

This is Sony! Thats all that you need to know. I bought this tv and it really blew me away, the picture is awesome whether playing a movie or playing a game and the motion is spot on so there is virtually no blur! The only thing bad that I have to say about it is that the sound could be better, however my surround sound system makes up for that.
