Sony - Poor Quality Televisions
SXRD & Sony Bravia XBR9 - Complaint
Poor quality-extremely substandard product and terrible customer service. We have purchased two TV's in the last 2.5 years costing over $4.5K and they both are out or almost out. We first purchased a 60" Sony SXRD five years ago. Spent over $2300 for it. A class action lawsuit was filed and won. Unfortunately, our TV did not have problems until after the extended period. Sony customer service will not do anything. TV is totally out now.
Our newest TV started having issues when it reached 2 years old. We spent $2000 on this TV. The screen started being black on the left hand side. After about 15 minutes it would clear up. Now 3/4 of the picture is black when you turn it on and it takes almost 30 minutes to clear up. TV Salesman all know the problem exists and there are complaints all over the internet. Somehow Sony has no knowledge and will not do a thing.
Do not buy Sony's substandard products. Use to be a loyal Sony purchaser. There was a time when you didn't mind spending more for a Sony product because you knew it was a quality product and the company backed up their products. Now Sony stands for substandard and horrendous customer service.
