      Calibrating is a must with this TV

      Out of the box, the HD picture was good and the SD picture was terrible, but having seen and helped friends set up their new TVs, this was not unexpected, and as I would be calibrating it anyway, didn't worry me. After calibration the HD picture was excellent and the SD picture was more than acceptable.

      The screen handles the signal from a Blu-ray player extremely well, displaying a crisp, clear, and detail rich picture, with only the tiniest amount of motion blur in fast action scenes.

      Sound quality is exactly what you would expect from a flat panel television, so you will need to buy a sound bar, or sound base.

      Design and build quality is, as you would expect from Sony, very high. A top quality plastic case and a perfectly smooth screen with a very neat bezel. The inputs and outputs are nicely laid out, and the set is very well balanced on the metal stand supplied. The remote is a little bit too small and lightweight for my liking, but it is neatly laid out and works well.

      I would recommend going to Sony's website for the full specification and list of web content and Apps.

      If you're thinking about moving from a CRT TV to flat panel television, I can recommend this model. It won't be be able to produce the high quality S.D. broadcast picture that you are used to, but the HD picture is terrific. I would strongly recommend calibrating it using a calibration disc, as this will make a huge difference. Trying to adjust it by eye and guesswork will only produce an acceptable picture at best.
