And great TV. Right out of the box, setup was easy and the picture is perfect, at least for my family and friends tastes. The only drawback I can find is that it is not clear that the wireless card is required for the network must be a Sony. I spent a lot of unnecessary time trying to run a generic wireless adapter and after calling Sony support has been informed that Sony should be referred to the adapter. After all that I decided to hard router.Sony son said he amended to clarify that in the literature.

I had the TV almost a month. I have not gotten to play with color or anything else on the disc. I tried the 3D is very good, but I have not seen much. I had no problems is always on. Of course, you must have active 3D glasses. I tried a new flat screen for at least a year. I think my answer would be the technical criteria for what seemed like a very good price, and I could not be happier. Try it, you'll love.

I have owned several Sony TVs over the years. This is by far the finest television I have ever owned. The mind blowing rich colors, blacks blacks, and clarity. Usability and excellent durability. Mate with this radical position of Z-Line Vitoria Flat Panel TV media and you have a system that matches anything on the market today. I have no dog in this race .. I am not an employee of Sony and never write reviews on Amazon, but you must take one of these before they sell out (which is the last model year, which has no impact on quality. In fact, my product was in March 2011 in re "is probably still the line for both parts of this unit off.)

The only thing that makes this unit does not have WiFi built in. It requires an Ethernet cable (10 Base T or 100) or USB port hardware key for Sony. Are curiously not support all wired Ethernet to wireless access points that I know of. A small price to pay for such great television. BTW ... make sure you buy the adapter kit 3D. My wife and I were both swept away by the quality. A couple of times in Alice in Wonderland, my wife thought that things are moving in our living room! That good ...
