CAUTION, go see this TV before you buy, it's plainly average
on November 28, 2010
I bought this TV a few days ago for $800. It was manufactured in Mexico dated August 2010. If you watch a lot of sports, I suggest you do NOT get this TV. I clearly see the fuzziness on the players. More when they go faster or up close. A Panasonic TV I had bought more than 5 years ago still has a superior picture to this TV. For the price, it is reasonable for its included features. If you expect a lot from this Sony TV, you will be dissappointed as I was. On its Vivid mode, the picture is not as bright as Panasonic or Samsung. Its PIP is hidden somewhere. You have to use its PC mode, which I still have not figured out yet. The remote controller is very no frills looking. Sony has decided to produce a generic TV. Shame on Sony for a taking a step backward. Remember, you get what you pay for. Buyer beware. Check out this TV before you buy it. You may or may not like it. Maybe I just expect too much from the Sony reputation. The price tag does not lie. If I can return or swap this TV, I will and pay more for something else. One positive on this TV, I can access my DVD player connected to it, from the Sony remote controller.

TV green power light comes on, but no picture. I wiggled the connector plug to TV, it sometimes gives the picture. After turning off the TV, green power light stays on. Same process again when turning on TV again. Pitiful it only lasted 2.5 years, and wasn't used a lot.
