The standard depth of the TV is the best I have seen. The High-definition makes me to say wow. Everything is clear and smooth. The picture is brighter and the bezel is a lot more elegant and simple. It might cost a little more than others but it's worth it. It has really great subtle flesh tones, no smearing and a very good contrast range especially for a LCD. When compared to other brands of LCDs I have seen, Sony is the only one to get and I am not a total Sony buff for sure. It seems to be a little more accurate with primary colors, it also have advanced picture adjustments on more than one picture mode. The new cross media bar menu is just too much trouble than its worth.
