2.0 out of 5 stars Decent TV, Limited HD abilities, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

* Decent LED edge lit TV and cheap for a Sony TV
* Easy to Use/Set up
* Relatively Stylish


*Automatic standby mode sometimes does not acknowledge that the viewer is using an external device (e.g. PS3) and warns that it is going into energy save mode
*DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT purchase if you intend to use this TV for gaming, as contrary to the information advertised, you will not " see PlayStation games in sharp FULL HD" . Sony Customer Service themselves informed me that not all HD TV's are fully capable of displaying HDMI compatible devices such as game consoles in either 720p, 1080p, or 1080i and that the PS3's high definition demands maybe to "advanced" for the TV to bear. Switching to any of the HDMI ports that my PlayStation 3 was using, resulted in the left half of the screen suffering from discolouration and screen noise, but strangely the right side remained clear. This was not due to any problems with my PS3 as it worked perfectly on another TV and Sony's PlayStation Support also agreed that the problem was the TV. This problem did not persist when I connected a Sky Digibox however so its HD capabilities are limited.

Final Review : Decent HD TV, not fit to play PS3. (or possibly Xbox/ any other HD games console also)
