The first impression of this tv was very positive. It was in nice packaging, and is a beautiful design. A black glossy outline, with a grey accent, looks great in any house.

The specs are even better on this tv. It is full 1080 with great color. It can play your movies at 240 fps and has 4 hdmi ports and a slew of others, you won't run out. The thing that blew me away about this tv are it's speakers. Compared to our other tvs, its "simulated" surround sound bests them by far. It's great for watching movies or playing games with.
One thing that bothers me is the software. The menu system is a pain to navigate, as with all other Sony XMB systems. It can lag and is just a real pain. The remote is also limited, and does not have a sleep button, but does have a power button on the front and back for no particular reason.
The 3d on this tv is better than other 3d tvs I've dealt with. The 240hz really helps with the image and reduces image tearing, but still isn't perfect. For movies it's great, but for games, don't even bother. The movement will make your brain hurt.
In conclusion, this is a great tv for the cost. The Sony brand is the top of the line in tvs. Sure you could buy a cheaper tv, but not at this quality.
