    Not very happy with this TV. The background light in not uniform on all the surface and also there are few vertical lines of shadow. I suspect to be some of the LEDs bad or not bright like the other ones. I can't return it as I live outside of US and to ship it back will cost me about $1000. If any one has an ideea how to adjust or fix the bad LEDs, please let me know.

      Just as good as the 929

      By Farmbuoy

      from Honolulu, HI

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA HX729 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      Ordering on line was easy. Be sure to include HDMI cables for connections to your cable box, ROKU, and Blu Ray player. Shipping to Hawaii took a week to 10 days longer than claimed which led to problems with the Basic install which I eventually cancelled since I was able to install by myself. You will need someone to help you lift the TV. It is big! Those are my only gripes. It was easy to set up, install, get started and operate. To date no problems. 3D is great and easy to figure out. The screen does reflect more light than my previous Sony LCD which is a little anoying but manageable. It is a great TV and we have accomodated the huge size quickly. We at first thought it might be too big but it is not.

      Where's the glasses????

      By ghoward1619

      from Oklahoma city, OK

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA HX729 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      Would give it 5 stars but the unit doesn't come with any 3D glasses. I feel since it is a 3D TV, it should come with at least 1 pair of 3D glasses. I paid over $4k for the TV. The picture is outstanding and I really love the set.

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA HX729 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      Only real issue with this tv is finding a comparable wall mount. And actually mounting it on the wall. Otherwise, this is the best overall tv in this size range. There are certainly other less expensive and bigger options I considered (sharp has a 70 and 80 inch) but the picture quality was awful in the others in comparison to this tv.

      Service and delivery comments:

      First one that got delivered had a 1-2 inch crack in the screen. And I was devastated(i live in Arizona). I assumed the worst for getting it exchange, I assumed I would get put through the wringer for shipping it back and having another one shipped out (it's happened before with other companies, so I expected the worst). I was surprised that it took nothing more than a fifteen minute phone call. They arranged to send another one and pick the damaged one up with no cost to me.
