For the most part, we enjoyed this while we had it. I do think the picture quality could have been better. The sound was excellent though. One of our kids hit the screen two months after we bought it with a little plastic toy and broke the screen. We not only had their warranty plus best buys but, we purchased extra. Not a single one covered it. Surprise, surprise. So, we paid an unreal amount for a t.v. and no longer had it 2 months later despite all our warranties. Picture Quality I was a little disapointed in the picture quality. I think for the price, it should be better. Sound Quality The sound quality was great! It's not perfect but, one of the better ones in my opinion. Durability It took a little plastic toy, a two year old, and a not so hard hit to ruin this. Not durable to me. Also, the warranty didn't cover it and the cost to fix it was unreal. I felt sick as we threw this 52" out two months after purchase. I have no desire to ever but Sony again. I know they won't back us when needed. Design I think it's a pretty basic design for a large flat screen. I like that it's not too bulky even with such a big picture. Performance Overall, I think it performs well.
