Overall, a very good TV to own.
Comments about Sony 55" Class 3D Ready LED HDTV:
The picture quality on this TV is nothing short of excellent and the sound is also very good. This is also the only TV where I actually like the preset picture modes. The only thing that I would change would be a little more consistency in how the local dimming works across the different picture modes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great T.V !
from Fort Wayne, IN 46808, USA
I bought this a few month's ago, And let me say....WOW! Great picture. It was between this one and the Samsung led. And I'm happy I chose this one. I love everything about it.
No Better Options for Accessories
There is only HDMI port, and no VGA port, I have tried all the methods of convertor available in the market but still cannot connect my laptop to the TV, not all the Laptop comes with HDMI port, At least Sony should have included a VGA port, and also the TV loads very slow when connected to Internet. Now I realize the mistake
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
BEST TV WE EVER HAD!
from Bronx, NY 10475, USA
Had this for more than a month, more than enough time to properly tweak the settings (had experience with test patterns before) and can honestly say this set is a joy to watch. A superb picture in every way. I have a large collection of movies recorded onto DVD-R from stations like TCM-HD, HBO, etc. and was afraid the much bigger screen would bring out more of the limitations of these home made discs compared to my KD34XBR960 which recently needed to be replaced. So happy to say that isn't the case at all! Of course, not the replication of the original HD source but this set does wonders with an up-converted signal and an overall 7.5-8 comparison which is more than one could ask for. And though we did not purchase it for 3D, that is a a bonus. The simulated 3D is really surprising in it's effectiveness and we watch true HD on our on demand services that comes free with premium channel subscriptions. So we're now hooked on 3D as an extra feature to enjoy.
Very Unhappy and Disappointed
I have never been more frustrated with a television set than I have been with this Sony TV. The clarity of the picture is not what I was expecting from Sony. It's horrible! I tried for over a week to adjust the picture quality and nothing seems to be easy. I called my cable company to come out to see if it was a signal problem. He changed the cable box, added a signal amplifier and still looked like all the shows and scenes were filmed in an overcast day. I will never again buy a Sony television.

Everything was great on the TV except the table stand that was supposed to double as mall mount bracket but did not work I had to buy the extra wall mount bracket .
Pleased to date.
After my 40" Bravia from 2009 this was a pleasant update. My choice was dependent on keeping my older Bravia working or basically smart/internet connected. Support was solid and helpful. I am glad Sony does not subscribe the Apple doctrine to leave their older models unusable to force new purchases. I bought this Sony specifically as a result of the support team actions to keep my older purchase alive and well.

Very thin and light with crystal clear screen.
Wow - 4K picture from 1080
At this price, cannot imagine a better TV! To me, picture is undetectable inferior to 4K; LED backlight seems to enhance 1080, and Motionflow is great. I am very pleasantly surprised how many channels are available in Sony Entertainment Network. Only negative, not that important - our home internet speed is too slow to access PS3 games. (good reason to upgrade our internet)
Best TV I ever had!
Great TV. Looks fantastic. WIFI works great. No complaints. I like Sony because my experience is that the picture still looks great many years later.
