For the past 25 years I have purchased only Sony products for my home, because I thought Sony would stand behind their products. Then I purchased a KDL 52 inch Sony Bravia TV, and I noticed digital lines or pixilation on the screen. Called customer service and was told they told me that would have to pay for a Sony authorized tech to check it out at a cost of $135 dollars, and he said it would cost more than $2,000 to fix! The LCD was advertised to last for 60,000 hours, that is 2,500 days or almost 7 years running. I’m sure in the 17 months I had the TV I put less than 2, 000 hours on it. Sounds like fraud to me and Sony should be held accountable for selling faulty LCD panels. One more former Sony customer that can’t wait to tell people never ever buy another Sony product.
