Hi All,

Anyone want to share their experiences with Sony's EX series. I will be getting the 55EX500 in the next week or 2 and would like some feedback on optimal settings, likes, dislikes, etc.

Like many others I have settled with Sony over the OB problems with their rear projection units.

I myself just bought a KDL-46EX500 today from a friend who owns his own electronics store. I got the TV + free Sony BDP-S370 Blu-Ray player for $899.00, so I could not pass that up. I will report back later after hook up tonight.

Congrats on your new purchase!

Still waiting for mine to come from Sony. I have read mostly good things about the EX500 series. Opted for mine over the EX710 because there appeared to be no difference performance wise between the Bravia 2 engine in this and the Bravia 3 engine in the LED based 710. I'll also post my impressions when i set it up.

What settings did you use? Stand or wall bracket? is there a noticeable drop in brightness with off angle viewing?

My SXRD still looked good from the side but I could tell there was a drop off in screen brightness. Oh well, It's destined to be recycle very soon...

I use a stand as ive always found it to be a better fit for me. There is hardly any brightness loss at all when viewing from an angle. I thought that I would notice it more but didn't.

Sony finally deilivered my 55ex500 Monday afternoon. Took 6 business days from the time they charged my credit card to delivery.

So far the picture does not disappoint. I have opted to use the stand it shipped with. 55" is huge vs. the 42" I had set up before. It's a great deal brighter than my old SXRD 50 and has more settings (i.e. sports, cinema, general, photo, etc.) i have settled on general for day-to-day viewing and use the custom and standard settings. The sport settings brightens things up considerably and I have adjusted the picture accordingly. Happy overall.

I'll post more later on.

I own a 55ex500. Love it so far.

I have read the c610 and ex500 use the same panel so picture quality should be more or less the same.

Choose the better deal. Either would be great.

Sony 55'' KDL -EX500

Bought one about a month ago - no poblems works great, I just find the picture is a little dull. I say this only cause I have a 52'' 7 series samsung to compare it too. Big price difference aswell.
Works fine for my bedrrom.
