I would prefer a LED-backlit instead of this TV, but at the timeI bought it last year, LED-LCD tvs were still too expensive. After 5 months of use, there's black "burn-in" spot near the bottom of the screen already. It could be just a bad unit, but I'm not too pleased. Other than this little mishap, the overall TV is pretty decent, especially with high definition. The quality of high definition is amazing compared to standard definition. Standard definition is more blurry showing on this tv and I would prefer another TV set that does both correctly. It really doesn't matter what brand it is, but any decent brand that have decent video quality for both high definition and standard definition will do. I rather watch good quality films on a cheap brand TV than watching some blurry scenes on this Sony TV, but I would still recommend to people who are looking for a decently priced older generation TV.
