15 Aug 2014 By Anand Verma On flipkart.com
Hi All,nnBefore buying sony tv.. do search for SONY BRAVIA PANEL ISSUE on Google.. you will find honest complaints from more thn 1000 people with complain number and mobile number.nI also faced Panel issue within 2 years of buy.. most of the people suffering from vertical/horizontal lines on panel including me.. within 2 years and the only solution is to replace the panel which is very costly.. no doubt the SONY QUALITY degraded to cut down the product cost..nIf you are buying TV for 35k + you will expect TV to work atleast for 5-7 years without any issue.. but SONY TV generally lasting for 18 months to 2 years..n if you still want to buy sony.. buy with warranty or look for other brands specially those who are giving extended warranty atleast fo 3 years in cheaper rate.. picture quality is more or the same for TV with same resolution from any renowned brand.. it just a hype from sony for BRAVIA..

As i am looking for a larger tv in size for replacing my 21 inches samsung tv,initially i am not much about which company to go for. still i short listed samsung LG and Sony(my last priority due its high price). so i started roaming around shops to get an idea of all the tv's and specifications ofcourse the price too. then i shortlisted to only two proucts i.e samsung and sony. not LG because i havent heard much of any one using an LG led though its a good company. now coming to the remaining ones i almost decided to go for samsung (due its cost low comapred to sony also with high specs in handy prices). then i started researching the products samsung H4250(smart tv, HD *presently not available in all stores* price: 44,500) and samsung H5000(not smart, full HD price:45490). in the above i shortlisted to H4250 with smarttv. when i was about to say an yes to the salesboy, i just glanced a sony tv which is just placed two tv's beside and was awestruck by its appearance. yes, the first looks are always cheated, hence i satrted reviewing that tv just for a sake. then i was bit let down for it not having smart tv option. when asked to the salesman say genuinly which tv is best the samsung h4250 or sony r482b(the model i am talking anout now) , he then directly pointed to sony and said 'Sir, sincerly telling you to not fool by the options others companies are providing,sony has the purest quality and picture rendering that any other company. ' so then u can guess which model i have finally chose. yes, its a Sony.nnPros:n1. Excellent picture colour reproduction. Full HD.n2. Plays 1080p Moives flawlessly and you will be flattered by its full HD resolution.n3. Usb port though only 1 port, reads faster then a pc and just takes 1-3 secs to play a video.n4.built in wifi works just fine.n5. Connects to pc through hdmi and the 1080p display is excellent.n6. you will get a sony dvd player for free worth 4290.Rs (an offer i got when i bought this october 9th 2014)n7. The Free HDMI cable provided (comes with offered free dvd player only) is a cherry on cake which can be used for other connecting purposes to tv.n8. Built quality is rigid and looks very much PREMIUM.nncons:n1. Sound: yes, the sound is bad. because when its sony you would expect much more good sound with bass. forget about bass but the sound is very low and you need to keep one increas the volume to 100(full volume) some times to be audible if you are staying in a bigger room or a noisy environment.n2. Not a smart tv, but you can have media sharing option which you only use ocassionally.n3. the hdmi, usb ports are placed at uneven places which are hard to reach. this would be worse if you are opting for a wall mount.( little precautions during wall mount can eliminate this and you can also use an usb extension which is the best)n4. the weak stand. the table stand you get in the packing is good for looks but very much sleek and the tv might get into risk of getting unbalanced and fall.(can be safe if you tie a knot behind for which they have provided the slots).n5. For people who want to go to wallmount, i better recommend take some suggestions from the sony service guy.n nConclusion: Finally this tv has got the best picture quality and durability. Best resolution when compared to others. Dont mind the cost factor because this tv lasts long and is the best in terms of qualiy. The only biggest concern regarding this tv is the sound which disappoints me hence i recommend to connect a home theatre which in turn makes the whole viewing experience amazing. :)nnPS: got this tv at YESMART andhra pradesh with a dvd free. Price: 46,500 (dusserah offer with some negotiations :P)
