    Purchased and installed on 11 Nov 2011. Picture quality was the same as on the Panasonic and LG TVs. Had Verizon verify the FiOS service and Set Top Box were working correctly. Verizon sent out another Set Top Box and TV-to-Set Top Box cable, just to make sure, and the TV had the same average picture quality. Called Sony Tech Support, however since the TV was not "broken" no support would be provided. The Sony larger screen does not provide better picture quality, just larger. If you want a large screen, other TVs have the same quality picture at a better price. Also, there is no "paper manual" and a paper manual cannot be downloaded from the Sony Web site. The TV owner's manual is displayed on the TV by pressing the iManual button. The problem is when the iManual displayed on the TV and has several "steps" such as go to "Main, Settings, Input, ..." as soon as you go the Main Menu, the iManual display is gone, so you either have to remember all the steps or write down the steps. Not satisfied with the 65" XBR HX929.

    Wow!

    By Normal

    from Los Angeles

    Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA XBR HX929 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    I read the reviews and knew the XBR-65HX929 was going to be a great TV. It never got 5 stars and one other brand had slightly higher ratings in this category. However, my installer said he had sold several XBR-65HX929's and people "loved" them. I actually never saw a working XBR-65HX929 prior to hooking mine up. In one word Wow!!!!. I am simply blown away by the beautiful picture. The XBR-65HX929 also looks beautiful off. It's very elegant. The 3D is really nice. I have a 3D Plasma from another brand and there is simply no comparison The Sony is simply better. I am also pleasantly surprised how good the 3D is on Directv. Normal Blu-ray is fabulous. The only negative is the lack of included 3D glasses. I will not be thinking about the cost of the XBR-65HX929 when I am watching it. It's worth the money.

    Best XBR yet!

    from Castleton, NY

    Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA XBR HX929 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    This is the third XBR I have owned, XBR4 and XBR8, both in the 46 inch variety. I wanted to go larger and could not convince myself to accept a lesser model so I went for the biggest and best and it is worth every penny. Easily outperfoms the XBR8, sony's last full array local dimming model, with far deeper blacks and more accurate performance. And heck, its 65", whats not to love. Also, Sony's customer service has been a pleasure to deal with.

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA XBR HX929 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      I am a audi-video enthusist and have purchased many high end SONY sets over the past 25 years. This 65" XBR set in my opinion sets the standard for 60"+ HDTV picture quality. The built in rear speakers are a joke, but since I hooked it up to a high end 5.1 home theatre system it is not an issue.
      I highly recommend this set as well as dealing with ABT for those in the market for a high-end set.

      Service and delivery comments:

      ABT shipped the set within 24 hours of my order being received. They provided me the tracking number and link to the freight company. The freight company called me to arrange a day and time to deliver.

      My first set arrived damaged beyond repair due to the shipping company dropping the flimsy Sony box on its bottom end, crushing the even flimsier styrafoam packaging. ABT sent out the replacement set the next day and it arrived within a week.
      My suggestion to ABT is to put the flimsy Sony box on a skid and place impact gel sensors on each corner of the box. If the skidded TV arrives with bright red sensors, then the TV is setup and turned on immediatly. A $10.00 skid would have saved a $6,000 set and the delay on me receiving a working set.

      ABT took care of the problem immediatly, but a little more packaging would eliminate the hassle of making a claim with the shipping company.

      Sony XBR-65HX929

      By rsass

      from Birmingham, AL

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA XBR HX929 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      I was the first person in the country to order the Sony XBR-65HX929 from a Magnolia Store. Purchased 8/3/11, Model Number Release date. Received from 1of 5 off the CA docks on 12.16.11. I took a picture with my dinosaur flip phone of a scene from the movie HEAT, where Waingro is getting into the truck with Michael Churito and text'd it to my dad. My dad ended up texting back "What's going on?" and then called and said, "Are you okay?" I said, "yeah." "Why?' He said, "who are those two people in the truck? Something doesn't look right. Are you in trouble?" I said, "No, I'm sitting here watching HEAT on my XBR." The picture was so clear even from a regular cell phone shot that he literally thot I had been standing outside being confronted by two men in a truck. It's comparable to when someone stands up in my living room and swears that it is raining outside; mistaken for my surround sound; a 13 year creation. Just becareful to shut the 'Position Sensor" "OFF", if you want to control your sound position from your receiver, otherwise, you will never get it stable because when you move about the room, the TV senses where you are and changes the sound parameters real time. My current config.; apt., lol, doesn't warrant hanging the TV, which I would prefer. This leads to the Stand which is most durable, assembled in Japan and together in the box when arriving at my place in AL. However, both my father's 55" XBR and my 65" lean an 1/8 of an inch to one side or the other; his right, mine left. You cannot tell when the picture is on, only if you compare the bottom or top of the TV to something else that is straight; a table it's on or a picture hanging straight on the wall above. We chalk this up to the fact that the TV is heavy and on the 65" can swival left and right. If the bolt connection on the stand is too tight without 'play'; may crack it. The TV is very intelligent. Scary, it updates Sony with your usage habits unless not-elected. Is it worth 6K? Yes. You pay for what you get. There's no other out there with the quality and which does not give you a headache due to the extreme brightness of colors; like the Samsung 9000 Series. Sorry Samsung, you lose. The price differentiates the best of the BEST. I recommend the piano black BDI Stand; glass capable of holding 150lbs on the bottom, 75lbs middle, 185lbs top. It's discontinued in July. There may be a few left. Oh, the manual. The level of detail provided by the on-screen i-Manual with regards to certain advanced features just doesn't get it for me. Ron S. Birmingham, AL

      Bigger and Better

      By tkwilli

      from Chesterfield, VA

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA XBR HX929 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      After recently replacing two 2000 and 2001 vintage Sony XBR HD tube TVs with a 46EX651 and 55EX651 for my game room and bedroom, I immediately realized the significantly better pictures than my 52XBR3 that was in my den. After finding myself no longer wanting to watch the XBR3 which I purchased five years ago and previously thought had a wonderful picture, I decided to replace it with the 65HX929. Since the HX929 cost four times more than my new 55EX651, I was hesitant that it would be worth the extra expense, although I was looking forward to the larger screen size. I was going to wait a few more days to review this TV, but after three days of use, I couldn’t wait to say how impressed I am. The brightness, colors, facial tones, and contrast especially in darker scenes are almost unbelievable. I think you would need to go to an IMAX theater to see a better picture. While I am still impressed with my EX651s, the HX929 has better facial tones, color and contrast. I did not care much about 3D, but after watching a few movies and sporting events on Comcast Cable, the 3D is also impressive. I like how I can recharge the BR250 glasses by plugging them into the two USB ports on the side of the TV. None of these new TVs seem to have issues with glare as I am watching them with lots of large windows in my house all open with the sun shining brightly through. I was surprised that the 65HX929 did not take much more real estate on my Z-Line TV stand than the XBR3, since the XBR3 had a much larger boarder around the viewable screen. I have my 46 wired to Ethernet, use the Sony Wireless adapter with the 55, and of course the 65 has wireless built in. I cannot tell any difference in Internet performance among the three TVs. It is nice to have the built in Wi-Fi on the 65HX929, since the USB ports are free for charging the 3D glasses. I think it is important to remind folks that no TV will a poor video source look great. If you are watching Judge Judy on standard definition or watching an HD channel broadcast that used inferior equipment in their broadcast, this TV will not make such broadcast look great, only bigger poor quality than small screens. However, when you watch a decent HD broadcast or Blu-ray, hold on to your pants; you will not be disappointed. In summary, I could not be happier with this TV.

      65", XBR HX929

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA XBR HX929 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      Purchased and installed on 11 Nov 2011. Picture quality was the same as on the Panasonic and LG TVs. Had Verizon verify the FiOS service and Set Top Box were working correctly. Verizon sent out another Set Top Box and TV-to-Set Top Box cable, just to make sure, and the TV had the same average picture quality. Called Sony Tech Support, however since the TV was not "broken" no support would be provided. The Sony larger screen does not provide better picture quality, just larger. If you want a large screen, other TVs have the same quality picture at a better price. Also, there is no "paper manual" and a paper manual cannot be downloaded from the Sony Web site. The TV owner's manual is displayed on the TV by pressing the iManual button. The problem is when the iManual displayed on the TV and has several "steps" such as go to "Main, Settings, Input, ..." as soon as you go the Main Menu, the iManual display is gone, so you either have to remember all the steps or write down the steps. Not satisfied with the 65" XBR HX929.

      Comments about Sony 65" BRAVIA XBR HX929 Series 3D LED Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      Over the years, I have enjoyed many a Sony XBR model. This one replaces a 5 year old 55" gem. The 65" extra size and added features are worth every penny. I hung this one on the wall and before turning it on it was breath-taking. It only got better when I turned it on and smiled. If you are looking for a large screen TV set, this is it if you want it all.
