This TV has a wonderful and clear picture and sound! It fits into the rooms surroundings with the black border. The screen is huge! Even the clarity in a bright light is fantastic. There is no glare on the screen even when I went to watch it at a side angle the picture was still clear and crisp. This replace an old huge back projection screen TV that finally bit the dust and this was a perfect fit for where it sat. The TV was easy to unload from the box and wrappings, but installing it and mounting it on the brackets took some time to get it into place, but we did get it secured to the wall. The only bad things we had was figuring it out on how to connect it to the DVR /TV box from the TV company we had. IT took a few tries and re-connections to get it working. The only other problem we had was the remote and how to connect every thing to it. You could turn on the TV but we couldn't get it to turn the TV box or the DVR/VCR player to it.. IT took us about a day to figure it out we had to turn the TV on first with the TV remote then the TV box with their remote and turn the channels with the TV remote, and then turn the DVR/VCR on and off with their remote.. The TV shows look much better on the flat screen instead of the back box projection TV. We will have many hours of TV, DVD, VCR and home made DVD viewing enjoyment on this, especially with family and friends coming over with kids for Easter Holiday! Thank you Sony for a wonderful product!
