Technology

Full HD 1080p
Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like Full HD 1080p picture quality. The highest in-home resolution available, it takes advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc player or PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
Silky smooth
Recreate the movement of real life. Sprinters accelerate clearly with less blur, so watching from home feels like you're watching from the stands. By minimizing judder, Motionflow XR 120 technology helps fast-paced action look natural for a more authentic view of the game.
Clearly different
Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions.
So bright and so thin
Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design that looks beautiful in your home. Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail.
Picture settings made easy
Now adjusting the picture is as easy as changing the channel. Just make a quick choice among eight pre-configured audio and video settings for a customized fit to what you're watching. Scene Select options include Sports, Photo, Game, Cinema and Music.
Digital Noise Reduction
Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid.

Bright and elegant
Perfect brightness and unparalleled color from a television that looks wonderful in your home: now that's innovation. Using advanced Edge LED technology, this powerful television delivers outstanding contrast and richer colors than TVs with conventional LCD backlighting.


Auto-adjust settings
The days of manually adjusting your television settings are over. Depending upon what you are watching, the Scene Select options menu lets you choose from a variety of pre-configured settings such as Sports, Cinema, Game, Photo and Music.

More like the cinema
Your favorite movies were filmed at 24 frames per second. Shouldn't the movies you watch at home be played that way too? With Sony's 24p True Cinema technology, your TV will display movies at their original 24 frames per second, just like you'd see at a theater.

Received this Sony 42" LED HDTV last week and I already own the 32" LED HDTV 1080p so I knew it would be just as great. Well it is better than I hoped it would be. Set up was super easy. The screen is sharper than my 32" size. You can watch this TV in a dark room and it adjusts to its environment. Same with a bright light on. From every angle you can see this TV clearly. This is in our living room. Perfect size. Highly Recommend this TV.

We wanted a TV that had a nice picture for a nice price. We've been pleased with our current Sony TV, just needed one a little larger. We ordered the first TV and the box and TV arrived damaged. We figured this was just a fluke so we returned that one and ordered another TV. The second arrived more damaged than the first... all the Styrofoam corners were smashed and the box had been punctured at the bottom, breaking the area of the TV where the stand sits. We returned that one and went to a B&M retailer to purchase the TV. It appears that the damage is occurring in Amazon's warehouse before being sent to the customer, as both times the box appeared to be punctured by a forklift and then re-taped over that area.

I highly recommend the TV, just purchase it from somewhere other than Amazon!

As you may of known the "motionflow xr 120" is just a b.s. number they throw up to make it look a class higher, its a 60HZ tv as per sony support.

The tv has a very nice picture but hurts a bit with movement. I noticed a lot of judder and motionblur in the tv, not so much during movies as gaming, though it is there through both.

Talking to sony support they gave me a page (will be under the review) and it greatly helped though did not fully get rid of it.

My old Vizio LCD 120hz from 2008 had no problems between tv, gaming, etc. For this tv you will need to switch between settings when playing games or watching tv.

TV was one nighted from amazon with no damage. I couldn't tell you about the sound as I use a surround sound unit. The TV is very thin though, so thin that if you swivel on a mount you can see the tv flex a bit. The screen has little to no protection, as even if you barely touch it, it looks like you are pushing hard into it (the wave/colors).

(I did find a game mode, but its under "scene" on the remote, not picture nor menu)

Per sony website/support

There is a lag or delay in the picture when playing a video game.

Solution

This can potentially occur on a High-Definition Television (HDTV) because of the built-in noise reduction and other picture adjustment circuitry designed to enhance the quality of high-resolution content. Although great when watching video from other sources, this circuitry can slow the reaction time from your controller and what you see on the TV screen when playing a video game.

If your TV has a Game mode, you can resolve this issue by going into the TV menu and turning the Game mode to On .

I really like this TV. Awesome picture clarity, thin LED screen and big 42 screen. The only part i don't like is that USB can only play .mpeg or .mpg movies. It cannot play other famous movie extensions like .avi, .mp4 etc. The good thing about this TV is that it supports 110V to 240V so that you can use anywhere in the world. Amazon does not charge tax that's plus point.
