Doesn't support wireless controllers
Comments about Sony 48" Class LED 1080p Smart HDTV:
So this looked awesome in that it comes with PlayStation Now in a addition to the apps that come with most smart TV and that PS controller can hook up to it. But come to find out, the controllers have to stay attached to the TV by a USB cord like some 1990's console. And to make it stupider, the ports are on the back. So now I've got to take back the controller I bought and cancel my subscription to Now. And I might just take the TV back too. Someone would do better buying a non-smart TV along with "PlayStation TV" which is separate box that does allow wireless controllers and has the other apps (PS Now, Netflix). As far as the rest of it, it's an alright TV. The menu's kinda clunky and focuses too much on promoting their products I won't use, but it works. If the box didn't make such a big deal about Now, I'd probably give it a higher rating.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

tv became defective in a month
Tv became defective in a month - color issues making it unwatchable. Sony support was very poor.
from United States
Wanted to get a bigger TV for the new Living room. Had 40 inch sharp. When seeing Sony Tv's in the store the picture always wowed me, except now. The default setting are horrible and when I try and adjust it just makes certain things like movies look a little better while sports will look bad. Don't know if something is off with the TV but definitely didn't meet my expectations of Sony.
I will always buy this brand TV.

Pull less wattage then my 24" computer monitor
from High Rolls, NM 88325, USA
I have electric consumption monitoring system on the house and this new 48" LCD pulls less electricity then my 24" LCD computer monitor not alone the 42" LCD TV that this new one replaced. Dust and heat not nearly as bad as the old one since it uses a small external brick for it's power supply. This new 48" is thin and very light. It has a great image and I am Video Tech. so I should know. Yes itâ€™s no 4K TV but for real world TV receivers at 1080P resolution its quite good enough. The update rate is good enough for most sports and racing. I like my basketball and formula one and both look great on this TV. For high level gamers it might not be enough but for most videos whether it comes from online, PlayStation or from a TV receiver this image and sound is very good at resemble distance from the TV (10 to 12 feet away). For the price you can't beat this TV and being factory Sony product its interfaces and reliability is the best. The 8 year old 42" Sony that I am replacing it with did not fail it went to the bed room because Sony products just keep going!
Great picture and value.
This television has a very clear picture; vivid colors and sharpness. It also has good features (wi-fi, social media, etc.). The only disappointment for me is the TV does not have "monitor out" or any ports in which to connect an older stereo receiver. However, it does have HDMI ports of course and digital optical.
Our requirements were very specific - 110/220 flexible voltage and Euro/USA compatibility. And of course, affordability. This model was perfect. The picture quality is excellent. We saw no reason to buy more than 1080p, as there are few sources available to take advantage of greater resolution. The internet functions are quite clumsy, and non-Sony streaming video is not supported, but those aren't especially important to us. We're very pleased.
from the moment we plugged it in we knew it was a great purchase. The picture is crisp and the sound equally as good.
Remote Has Limited Capabilities
The aspect ratio of the picture can not be changed directly from the remote. The remote is too small and makes changing the volume and channel very difficult. The remote has a very narrow beam width and must be aimed directly at the receiver or else it will not function. The unused (hidden channels) can not be deleted requiring an input at the remote of 2.1 instead of just 2. With only two connections in the rear of the television, the antenna and HSMI, using the remote is a multiple step function instead if just changing between the only two connections. The manual is useless and the one stored in the TV is not much better and difficult to use. Other than those items, the picture is satisfactory.

I would buy this product again
from Maxton NC
I love the television, however, there was a crack in the upper left side of the screen. Since I didn't take it out of the box until after the courier had left I am sure there is nothing that can be done about it. Otherwise, I love the TV.
