2 out of 5 eggsPower supply may die

Pros: Cheap, great picture, Sony

Cons: The power supply use cheap condensator. Some may die. Repairable but not expected...

Other Thoughts: Was very disapointed when the TV failed to start.
Replaced the power supply and the TV is working again. Cheap fix but not a good experience.

1 out of 5 eggsAlready dead

Pros: Nice flat panel.

Cons: TV has barely been used since the purchase around Christmas 2013. It was refurbished so something was wrong with it originally. The TV started popping the other day, and now will not power up.

2 out of 5 eggsTV has ghosting problems

Pros: Low Price
Beautiful colors
Good speakers

Cons: Ghosting problems
Not enough inputs
No warranty

The tv has ghosting so it totally ruins games, it's not so bad on blurays or hd cable but still, I'm sad, i wanted to save money, next time I'll be wiser.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV, No Pretense

Pros: No extra bells and whistles - I'm glad this is not a smart TV. The interface is pretty well done, and the TV acts exactly as I would want an HDTV to act; I have other devices for network streaming and media that I prefer to use, and I'm glad that this TV just gets out of my way.

This is my first HDTV, and I'm no videophile, but I do appreciate quality and detail. This TV has yet to disappoint me in any respect, and exceeds my expectations across a variety of media.

Cons: It would be nice to have another HDMI port, but I don't personally foresee needing more than 1 or 2.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

Pros: Received Yesterday in standard brown box : / Packaging was well secured with air bags. Let unit warm up before turning on and everything seems to be working fine. Both HDMI slots work. The component Bl/Gr/Rd connection supports standard composite, ReD/White/Y. Sound is not as bad as i would have thought, Goes to 99 and in an average sized room 40 is enough to hear without distortion and still be distinct in range of sound. Menus are easily navigated and functions are sufficient.
Picture- Quality is pretty darn good, although this is my first LED/LCD t.v... i have seen quite a few and this is better than most i have seen
Using PS3 for games looks great, Netflix looks great through Chromecast and PS3.
Cable stations in 480 look good, but Digital stations in 720p and 1080i look Great. I have basic cable and am able to get at least 10 1080i stations as well as 720p stations.
Extremely lightweight and slim panel as well as edges.
Motion is what you would expect at 60Hz ok for most things, but not good enough for a gamer/sports junkie.
Remote is comfortable in hand and easy to navigate, has a V-grove in middle of the back which makes it nice to hold in my larger hands.
Overall I am pleased with the purchase considering It was only a 25$ t.v... Sold 2 PS4's and made 300$.. Although i've only had it for a day, i think/hope/crosses fingers the t.v. will last, For my 1st HDTV I couldn't have done much better without spending 1000$. Now to the Cons/Dissapointment list

Cons: -Sony doesn't offer extended refurbished warranty, but only 90 days.
-Its refurbished ...However maybe its better that way
-Only 2 HDMI's, but this doesn't really bother me as much as disappoint, I plan on getting a receiver anyway with 4 HDMI's to one, Using 1 for Chromecast and one for PS3/w Blu-Ray,
-Not true 120Hz refresh
-Mounting Holes seem to be low and too close together to be a great choice to use a wall mount with, but its like 16lbs so shouldn't be that bad for future mounting purposes.
-Wish Inputs were not 90 deg. but from bottom of t.v., less stress on cables+Input Board and easier to hide/better profile on wall.

Other Thoughts: Have not owned that long but my hope is that I don't have problems with the tv, and that it at the least lasts me for a few years before the 4K's come down in price. If anything changes ill have to update the review, but so far so good.

Love Newegg btw been with them 7+ years and never had a problem with any product, and they stand with customers 100%

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Beautiful =)

Pros: Color rendition is off the charts... Hyper accurate!!!
Slim bezel around screen.
Less power consumption than the 32" it replaced.
Decent remote, but keys are a little on the awkwardly placed side.
Super light.
Good speakers.

Cons: Flimsy base.
Takes some time to get the settings just right. Luckily I came from a 32" Bravia so I kinda knew what I needed to do to squeeze the best performance out of it. Make sure you change the Display Area to Full Pixel or +1 under the Screen settings. Otherwise you will not see the full image.

Other Thoughts: My only complaint is regarding the condition the unit arrived in. I have had a few Factory Refurbished products over the years and they have always been repackaged as new. Packaging was always perfect, manuals and remotes were new and unopened... etc.

My unit arrived in used/returned condition. It looked like original owner had packed her up and shipped it straight to me ;-) Screen was amateurishly wrapped in original packaging, 2 of 4 corner styrofoam blocks were cracked in half. Remote and manuals were obviously used and there were no remote batteries (maybe they do not include the "token" cheap batts any longer).

BUT, what bothered me the most is that the screen itself wasn't immaculate =( You can see swirly water marks on the screen from someone trying to clean it without using distilled water. I haven't taken time to clean it properly yet to see if there are any scratches on the screen. I will do that after I give a few days to make sure it functions properly.

I only posted my complaint in the review because I could not figure out how to easily send an email to Newegg with ny complaint.

5 Stars for product performance.

2 Stars for Newegg and the condition they shipped the unit to me in.
