We LOVE this TV soooooo much!!!!! It has a gorgeous picture, great sound and was priced well. We have recommended this TV to all our friends. Our house has also become the "gathering" hole for watching football and other programs. Can't wait for the "Daytona 500"! We'll have a full house! This is "A HAPPY MAN!"

We spent the last 4 or 5 months debating if we were going to purchase a new LCD HD tv for our main living room. After watching the prices drop during the fall into early winter we made the purchase when this 46" Sony rose to the top of the list. It will only take you minutes to set up and the picture is great right out of the box. We could have found a slightly lower priced comparable tv, however what sealed the deal was when my wife's parents bought a comparable Sony a week or two earlier and while watching the Packers this tv did not allow commercials to harass us with their obnoxious volume jumps. That was worth the extra $100 for me alone. There will be no need to hit the mute button every few minutes because of that feature. Another feature I liked was that there are buttons on the side of the tv to turn on/off, change channels, inputs, etc. So when the kids lose the remote I can still watch without going on a remote hunt first. One last comment would be that we have a very brightly lite, large living room with a couple bay windows. We can see this tv great w/o closing all the blinds. There is simply no glare or reflection on the screen. Overall, we are more than pleased with this tv and everything about it.

My husband and I decided to finally upgrade to a flat screen TV. We were going to stick with a $600 price range and just get the best TV we could for the price. We talked to a lot of people and stores and started realizing that if we were going to buy a new TV, we needed to really look into all of the specs, and make a decision based on the quality of TV so we wouldnt be disappointed down the road. After doing all of our research we realized that the Sony Bravia's were a great quality TV, right up there with Samsungs. All of the other TV's we looked at in the $600 range that were 1080p 120Hz were anywhere from 30,000:1 to 70,000:1 contrast ratio, and didnt have any special features. This TV is 150,000:1 contrast ratio, so it far exceeds your bargain TV. Not to mention all of the extra features the TV has such as light sensor technoligy that adjusts the picture according to the rooms lighting, totally makes the purchase worth while! Although we ended up spending about double what we wanted to, it was more than worth it for a high quality TV that will last for years. The picture quality is amazing, and the TV is beautiful. I would definitely recommend it.

defently great tv even though i just got it today. the picture is defently clear. crisp, great etc all that jazz everything you can expect from a 1080p TV. playing my ps3 the games look way better now than my 32 inch i had. the sound is really great when you customize the sound bars put them up.just got done watching a blu-ray movie my god does it look extremely good now with it being 120hz and having motion flow just makes the blu-ray experience ten times better. settings the TV has is great cause there's so many feats to help you use the full power of the TV. one setting which is on most TV's the sharpness of picture. i can actually tell if the sharpness is to high or to low. compare to the other TV's i looked at where you put it on high and than low there's no real difference. now i cant wait to upgrade my dish to really use the full power of the TV when watching shows. overall the tv is perfect and a good reasonable price defently was worth my money.

I did a lot of research before I bought this one and I'm extremely glad I did. The picture and sound are excellent. The standout feature is the sound because most LCD TVs get poor marks for sound. I was prepared to get a home theater set up then I decided I didn't need it. The TV has a nice selection of options for input and I can't say enough about the picture. Even with standard TV broadcasts it looks clear and sharp which many don't. HD and Blu-ray is where it really shines though. Put on a film like Up or Avatar and you feel like you are back in a theater. It gets my highest marks. It's a great value for the money and I'd put it up against TVs costing $500 more.

Excellent TV.....wow...what a clear picture! I just sold my old Sony projection TV that was 12 years old and and still working. You pay a little more for Sony but it's been my experience that it is worth it.

This is my 3rd Sony but my first venture into the 46 inch class. I learned a very good lesson when i bought this TV because i thought it was going to be too big. I learned that if you think it is going to be too big buy it because when you get it you will adjust to the size in about two days. But overall it makes watching your favor shows more enjoyable. Now i wish i went with the 52 inch but i'm very happy with this size. It took me a while to find the right setting and i turned of the ambiant sensor. But once i got it fine tuned the picture is perfect. 120hz looks more nature on this set than on others and gaming is much better now especially when playing Madden football. The design is nice and the black shiney bezel mixed with the dark steel gray make it look like your watching a miniture cinema screen. I only wish it had picture out of picture for a set this size. But i never had it so i don't miss it. I highly recommend this for those on a budget like me but want to get the big picture with quality to boot.

Have been looking to buy a HGTV for a long time. The Sony 46" Bravia fits just right in my den and works great with my sound system. Installed with no problems and hookup was very easy.

Searched for a few months for a new TV to replaced our 10 yr old Sony tube tv. We figured we would go back with a Sony since ours has worked great until it started to develope some color issues. Well we continue to get a green screen out of the blue or every so often when fliping back and forth on the DVR between chanells. I took it back once thought maybe it was just the set. Second set is worse!!! picture on both is a little fuzzy and not as sharpe as one would expect it to be. I do not reccomend this set to any one. My wife did an online search and many people were talking about the same "Green Screen" issue. this wa happening as soon as 2 weeks after purchase
