      I have to be honest - this TV is barely 5 hours old in my house so perhaps I should temper my enthusiasm with that fact that I've probably only scratched the surface on this great set. That being said, here are some key points.

      I've owned this TV for about a month. This replaced a 46" LG LCD TV (~2 years old) that now lives in my bedroom. The Sony does not produce the bright vivid colors that the LG does, I've played around with the preset and custom settings, but the set produces what I would call a fairly bland picture. What's worse, unlike my LG, the colors fade when viewed from more than approximately 30 degrees. I don't know if this is a limitation of LED edgelit TVs but I don't notice this effect on my older flatscreen.

      A good but not great TV

      By cweinbl

        Comments about Sony 55" Bravia EX710 Series LED LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

        I replaced a 46" Sony projection TV with the new Sony Bravia 55." I like the Bravia's color and sharpness. The brightness is not as good as I had anticipated. That being said, it is at least 70% brighter than my old projection model. The cabinet is incredibly thin, even compared with my wife's 2- year-old Sony TV. The remote is easy to use and efficient. The wireless adapter offers a link to so many different pay and free services #Netflix, Amazon, Sony, etc.# that after three months of use, I still havent had time to explore half of them. The TV has a motionflow sensor, to keep the picture sharp, even with plenty of movement. It has an ambient room light sensor that adapts the brightness to room lighting conditions. It even has a sensor that will turn the TV off after there has been no movement in the room for a set amount of time. In essence, this TV is virtually state-of-the-art. The owners manual is built into the TV and user friendly.

        from Elk Grove, CA

        Pros

          Comments about Sony 55" Bravia EX710 Series LED LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

          Ladies & Gentlemen: This one's for both of you. The setup for this TV is so easy I did it entirely by myself. My fiance ' was amazed. He couldn't believe it. I have not changed the audio or video settings since I purchased it a month ago. I'm impressed with the natural, real, rich colors-particularly outdoor settings. The indoor colors are equally amazing. All of the colors are so vivid & distinct. The bluest blue & greenest green. Watching the NBA, pre-season MLB, the PGA and March Madness is sweet with this TV. The skin tones are perfect. I had to turn down the bold volumn through our home theatre surround. This TV is beautiful with any decor. I absolutely LOVE this TV.

            I upgraded to this model from the 46EX500 and i'm glad i did. I thought the set would have been too large for my 13 x 17 bedroom but i was wrong. i sit about 6 1/2 feet from my tv and the view is perfect. I didn't have to do much tweaking at all when i hooked it up the picture was perfect right out the box.

              WOW, I have not been this excited since since my first date with my wife.
              I love this tv.
              I have a Sony 13 inch color tv in my garage that was a gift in 1977. IT STILL WORKS! and nothing has ever been done to it.
              You can fine tune the picture to perfection with settings, standard, custom and vivid.
              Watching Netflix is a breeze.
              I have it hooked up to a Sony t57 home theater and I may never leave my house again. There are about 6000 movies I want to watch.
              Easy to set up and easy to operate.
              I just cannot say enough about this tv.
              I have changed my will and now I will be buried with this tv.
              I did not go 3D, I do not think 3D will really make it until they can make a set that requires no glasses.
              Guys, gals, if you can afford it, this is the TV for you.

                  Comments about Sony 55" Bravia EX710 Series LED LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

                  This is a fantastic deal for a non 3D television! The picture quality is superb, I had to do a little tweaking with the settings through a calibration disc but now it is absolutely fantastic. Picture is hardly distorted from off angle viewing. It was easy to use and set up right out of the box nothing really required unless you want to use the internet wirelessly, a separate piece is needed. I chose the wired route as it makes no difference to me. The internet content is great and there is plenty of it. I haven't really played around with it much but Pandora seems to work flawlessly for me. The only complaint is sound and speed of the menu system. I wasn't expecting much as hardly any television has "great" sound, but the menu's seem to be kind of slow when changing picture settings, changing input, and etc. Its not quite as thin as I would like or quite as sleek but it is sturdy and that matters most. Overall I am extremely pleased with my television purchase, another great Sony product.

                    great TV perfect for your home theater, seriously feels like a theater at home, backed with a bose surround system.
                    problem with USB is that if you have the WIFI adaptor hooked up you need to remove it each time you want to connect other USB devices to view(camera,music etc) controlling volume requires a second remote, and cant figure out the TV remote with the comcast digital converter box, I need 3 remotes to operate the TV(bummer)
                    overall very happy with TV thus far-4days old

                        I just got this tv last week. I went in to buy Samsung and the salesmen talk me into this for the price and quality. Everything he promise and said about it was true. Great tv. And it is very easy to operate all the adjustments and go into the internet mode. I don't mind the sound of it, but the wife does. I also have a older sound system to it and it helps. But I am already looking at HD recievers to get the really good sound.
