I was forced into this 60" set since I needed a matte screen. I was going to buy the Vizio 65" for $200 more but the reviews stated it had a glossy screen. (I now have 2 Sony's, 1, 47" Vizio which this 60" set replaced, and 1 Panasonic LCD sets.) I have no complaint about the picture quality but can't comment about the 3D until I spend another $200 for 2 pair of glasses. Sony has cut corners so much that they don't even include any 3D glasses with this $2800 set. (Vizio gives you 4 pair). The owners manual is typical of Sony today and not much. The main owners manual is built into the tv. Now I see why all the magazines rave about the great manual Vizio furnishes. The menu is more complicated to navigate than the Vizio, but you have control over a large number of settings per scene setting. If you wall mount this set, get a mount that will stick out from the wall. Unlike Vizio, Sony did not recess the connections on the back. I had to get a 90 degree HDMI angle plug because a heavy HDMI cable pushed the set away from the wall. We sit 10 to 14 feet from this tv and anything larger might be too big. If you think SD looks bad on an HD set, it sure looks worse on one with a larger screen. A good upconverting DVD player is a must. We use a Sony BluRay unit and you can tell a little difference between a standard DVD versus a BluRay DVD. On the 47" Vizio or the 40" Sony it was hard to tell any difference. This review is not intended to be as negative as it may sound, but if Vizio had built a 60" with a matte screen I would have gone with it in a heart beat. If the 65" Vizio had a matte screen, I would have ordered it but I might be writing about how the screen was too big for the room. I marked that "I would recommend this to a friend" but only because I believe there is nothing else available in a 60" that would be better. I did look at LG and Sharp, read various magazine reviews about them and did not consider either. Also, to hook this set up to the internet requires a hard line ethernet connection or an optional Sony wifi adaptor. Come on Sony, this is not some $799 low end special. Internet ready should mean just that. The wifi should be built in or the adaptor free.

I purchased this TV less than 13 months ago. The picture and sound went out two days ago. Dealing with Sony is a huge joke. They do not stand behind their product. We spent 3000.00 for a TV that is now basically useless. If you have money to throw away, buy this product, if not I suggest you google Sony and the Bravia product line and see all the complaints. Their products are defective. I wish I had, now I have to buy another TV which is a huge investment for our family. I guarantee it will not be a Sony product.

Easy to hook up and had all the features I was looking for in a TV. The 1080P HD and 3D is a great upgrade from my previous TV, which was also a Sony. The 3D sports are really nice. I use a lot of Sony and have never been disappointed.
