Pros: Picture clarity and Sony quality!
Cons: Owners manual code have a little more explanation of features and more channel labels.
I purchased this TV almost two years ago. It has come down in price by almost $500 dollars since then. I knew it would, but I don't regret the purchase because it has proven to be a great TV with a fantastic picture! The sound is adequate, but anyone wanting a "home theater" experience will want to run sound through an A/V system.
Remote is easy to use. Features are mostly useful, but there is a limit to about 15 channels you can name (e.g., label with letter code like ESPN or HBO. Other than that, the set has been great and will hopefully last 10 years or more. My second Sony (a 27" Trintron) is going on 7 years and has never had a problem even though it has moved with me at least 5 times!
