Three years ago I let a salesman talk me in to a cheaper bigger set by another manufacturer. I was never happy until it suddenly died. Now, after research I bought the right TV for me at a terrific price. The picture is amazing, and the sound is great. I am watching action movies for the pure fun of the picture quality.
Pros: 1080p, 120 Hz, and Slim
Cons: Cheap looking remote and sound is +/-

This TV took about 10 minutes to be able to play once i opened the box. The remote looks about $5 dollars, but thats just me. The HD is great; I've had the TV for a whole week and I love it. I use the 120 Hz for games, and i turn it off when im watching movies (because you arent supposed to recognize the human-like-dolls the movie producers use as people). The sound seems like it is coming through the back, so i put in some speakers and that problem went away. But other than that, the tv is really worth the price.
Pros: The image quality
Cons: Shiny, reflective trim

I replaced a four year old flat panel lcd with this model and the picture is truly as stunning as Sony claims. HD over the cable is so life-like it looks like you could reach into it (almost 3D). Even a component hookup from my five year old DVD player shows a vast improvement over what I had and I attribute that to the refresh rate. The con (and this is being rather fussy) is that the black glossy trim is refective of any light you have in front of the TV and in some circumstances is distracting. I think I can lean to live with that, however.
