I bought this TV 3 years ago for the bedroom as my old Bush one just didn't cut the mustard anymore. Having had problems with the picture quality and channel name display on my first choice ( a Philips) I chose Sony as my second preference brand-wise. I wasnt disappointed. Number 1, the screen, is FST and of the highest quality. It was superior. Number 2, it has a wider choice of picture adjustment options including sharpness. Number 3 it has a really useful CATS (Contrast Auto Tracking System) which dims the screen in the dark, and makes it brighter in light environments. It is very well made. It has an excellent, well-designed remote control.
