I used a number of these screens recently on an event that I was working on and consider it to be an excelent screen for the money.
although I dont own the product at home, I do use these and other screens on a regular basis.
With smooth fast-moving images using sonys world first Motionflow 200Hz technology with image blur reduction and incredibly clear and defined pictures with BRAVIA ENGINE 2 and Advanced Contrast Enhancer.
As with most screens you are able to link to your pc to enjoy all the music and photo content from your computer on your TV with DLNA home networking technology.

At the end of the day there is not much that I can tell you that is not listed in the specs. It is nice to have a screen that is not black and featureless, this midnight blue is stylish, the screen looks nice and less overwhelming than many screens that I have worked with. Great connectability with a range of inputs for almost any home cinema/professional broadcast needs.
I have to hand it to Sony, this is a lovely peice of kit and not bad for the price although there are other screens out there that are just as good value.
I guess that if I was asked to reccomend this screen then I would do so for the all round functionality, I am also impressed that Sony chose not to add their clear perspex rim to the screen as they have done with some others (not good).
I hope this review helsp. Is the screen any good? Yes Is it value for money? Yes Is it the cheapest screen for its features? No Should you go out now and buy one? Thats uo you, i think if you chose to then it would be more ofr the look than anything.
