This BRAVIA model features an Ambient Sensor which automatically adjusts the backlight for the best picture setting depending on the colour temperature of the ambient light in the room.

Connect to your favourite technologies
With its USB Media Player, you can connect a wide range of USB devices straight to your BRAVIA TV. From mp3 players to cameras, laptops to camcorders - even content from your USB memory stick, just plug in to enjoy your favourite multimedia files on screen. You can stream movies, music and photos to your BRAVIA from compatible devices, such as your laptop, mobile phone or music player, no matter where in the home they're located, thanks to DLNA technology. Enhance your BRAVIA experience by connecting other HD products such as a Blu-ray Disc™ player or PlayStation®3 thanks to four High Definition Multimedia Interface™ (HDMI™) inputs. These connections are specifically designed to carry high quality digital video and audio content. BRAVIA Sync lets you control other Sony devices you've connected using your BRAVIA TV remote control.

Access all your media, simply
Thanks to the XrossMediaBar™ menu interface, inspired by the PLAYSTATION®3, it's now easier then ever to browse the TV functions, change channels and access a world of home entertainment content. Flip between movies, games, music and pictures, without hassle, from one simple graphical interface.

Experience style and substance
The TV's sleek 55" (138.8cm) screen not only enhances the viewing experience but looks stunning even when the picture is off. Switch it to Picture Frame mode and you can turn your BRAVIA into a work of art by displaying pre-installed images or your own photos and make great use of your wall space even when you're not watching TV. To allow you to enjoy the perfect fusion of image and sound, the speakers are hidden in the TV design and positioned for ideal sound elevation.

Enjoy authentic cinematic experiences
Cinema Mode is a new picture setting developed in collaboration between BRAVIA and Sony Pictures Entertainment. It allows films to be viewed as close to the original director's cut as possible. Cinema Mode precisely reproduces details such as natural skin tone, lighting, colour and contrast. In 24p True Cinema mode films can be watched as the director intended for the big screen - at 24 frames per second. Standard TVs use 25 frames a second which means they play back 'faster' than they do in the cinema.

Clearer, more life-like colours
Reds and greens are notoriously difficult to reproduce on an LCD screen. Live Colour intelligently boosts these colours making sure the images you see on your BRAVIA TV are bright, vibrant and realistic. Connect a compatible camera or camcorder and the TV will automatically switch to optimum settings for displaying photos and reproduce their full, realistic texture and colour.

    I bought this TV for the World Cup and it has just about everything I wanted and most importantly the picture quality is excellent. The built-in Freeview HD receiver provides a very sharp, clear and vivid picture. The internet connectivity was easy to configure (I use HomePlug connections rather than the wireless) and displaying photos and playing DivX movies via the USB stick has worked very well.

    But best of all has been the ability to control the TV, Sony AV Receiver and Sony PS3 with just 1 remote control. The Bravia synch (via the HDMI) works seamlessly so that when I switch the TV on, the Sony AV Receiver switches on automatically as well, the TV switches sound output to Audio system speakers (so no need to switch off TV volume manually) and finally the AV Receiver switches to TV so that I get instant Surround sound - all with just the push of 1 button on my TV remote. The same when I switch the TV off, it automatically switches the AV Receiver off as well. Its great to be able to put away the other remotes :-)

    Note: I do have all Sony kit! If you have a Virgin+ or Sky+ box then I think you may have to buy a programmable remote or live with 2 remotes!

    Verified Purchase
    If you need a big TV (thus >= ~2.5m viewing distance), cannot afford 3D/LED and don't want plasma, this could be the TV for you. If you already have SONY hardware it also integrates very nicely.

    Screen is not plagued by the various issues of LED versions (cones, spots, clouding), it's big and bright. Some users have reported colour banding issues, luckily this set does not have it.

    Sound is fine, much better than thin LED versions, more room for bigger speakers? If you have a SONY receiver, a click on SYNC MENU can switch between TV and receiver audio, a nice touch (optical out).

    Freeview HD is fabulous, really makes the TV worth it, pity only 3 channels are available; normal Freeview TV is OK after calibration (see AVForums) but even tweaking the defaults was fine with me. Plenty of picture settings, to calibrate the set professionally if you wish.

    100Hz processing works for me, no major artifacts unless cranked very high, IMHO better than Samsung's.

    Switching inputs is easy (SOURCE button shows menu) you can assign icons as well as name. I like the PS3-style menu to "normal" menus.

    You can also control a DVD/HDD SONY recorder, Blu-ray player, etc. through the TV and this should work with other brands' devices, but never worked properly for me with my (previous) Samsung TV.

    Internet works great, the TV also updates firmware without the need to download to USB stick. Demand 5 and Love Film are available at Freeview-like quality (not yet HD), but no BBC iPlayer, Channel 4 or ITV yet. There are some other channels (Eurosport, YouTube, Blip.tv, Tagesschau,) that might be of interest.

    Very pleased with this television.

    Easy to set up (although does need two people due to it's size / weight).

    Plenty of connections for our DVD, satellite, game console, etc.

    Picture is excellent, sound quality is good.

    Puchased additional wireless adaptor too, which gives access to (some) internet TV (e.g. channel 5, youtube, etc.).

    Looks good in the room.

    Remote is not the simplest, but is perfectly ok.
