This was a purchase made a little over a year ago, and it was something that my husband wanted and I could have done without. I was perfectly happy with the TV we had and didn't want to put out that much money for another TV, but I must admit that this TV is a really nice purchase.
Our Sony Bravia has a 52" screen. The picture is crystal clear, especially on high definition stations. The audio is crisp and clear. I find myself often having to turn down the volume because of the loudness and strength of the audio. The TV is equipped with a lot of great features, such as picture within a picture and the ability to change the picture mode to four different categories: wide zoom, normal, full and zoom. You can also change the picture to theater mode, which softens the overall look. There are features on this TV that my husband and I haven't even used yet, and we've had the set for over a year.
We also purchased an extended warranty with the set, which gives us about three years of coverage should anything go wrong.
The remote is great. It allows you to tap into the features of the set without having to leave your seat. My husband and I have enjoyed hours of movies and television programs on the Sony Bravia with no complaints. And even though it was costly, we feel that it was worth the purchase price.
