This TV has Super, Amazing, and Crisp great picture quality hands down, after a whole 1+ year of researching this TV paid off. if u want the best picture quality might as well go ALL IN ( "i mean invest Wisely") and SONY TV didn't disappoint me in anyway. The 3D is astonishing its unreal both in SONY PlayStation glasses and the Regular but make sure u get this model TDG-BR750 because they do make a difference and the extra buck is worth it! The Blue Ray Player is INSANE with the Perfect Rich Colors and Contrast, Motion Flow 960, LED Control and all the good stuff, This TV makes everything Shine even the TV itself Shines. With the gorilla Glass and stand it looks Sexy REALLY tho. I can go all day with the stunning features packed inside this TV and how it handles itself but my MAIN REASON why i bought this TV was for GAMING on my PS3 for my bedroom!!! Yes i want my Online EXP to be a Horror for other gamer's with the Picture Quality of this TV and it has been Successful. The compatibility with other Sony products is been a big plus too. i got this TV for the DEALS ("in a way i had enough $$$ to buy a Home theater Also this model BDV-E390 particularly that cost $279.99 BUT i got it for the DEALS") SO U DO THE MATH?! and was so SO so HAPPPY with the purchase and SONY did a FANTASTIC job in their Customer Service 10 Thumbs up for them they solved and took care of every issue i had ordering even deals for the Warranty. SONY is the way to Go this TV has Everything it beats all the rivals and SONY always got your back. A smart investment period.

I would have given this TV 5 Stars, had it not been for the dreadful sound. No amount of tinkering with the presets has any real improvements on the out-of-the-box sound setting. The additional sound bar actually makes the TV sound worse, not better. I feel genuinely cheated that Sony would put, what sounds to me like, really tinny speakers in a relatively expensive, premium product. My cheap, 5 year old Bravia sounds 5 times better than the HX850.

Stunning.

By Steve1971

from Saint Paul, MN

Ok where to start? The HX850 replaced my HX750 and the difference between the 2 TV's is like night and day. The PQ and Black levels on the HX850 are beautiful....simply beautiful. The Monolithic design of this tv is beautiful to behold and talk about a slim design? This tv has it. It also has features galore and the Super 3D is like you are "There" and part of the movie. Anyone who owns a tv like this should have it hooked up to a surround sound system. There's nothing wrong with the built in speakers but a beauty like this needs room rattleing sound. If you can still get the HX850 I suggest you get it because you WONT be disappointed...I know I aint. This is yet another masterpiece by Sony and a must have in my book.

It really is the best

By Trinitron

from New Hampshire

If your looking at this television then like me you have narrowed your choices to SONY or SAM. The HX850 was a game changer for me, stunning visual superiority, over the 7000 and 8000 models. The proof, when they say BLACK they mean it. The X-reality PRO engine has mind blowing noise suppression. Plenty of connectivity, including HDMI port 1 with an (ARC) audio return channel. Yes, you can buy televisions for less money and that's what you'll get less television, nough said.

      best TV I have ever owned

      By twomonts

      from Montpelier, Vermont

      Pros

      • picture clarity and sharpness, motionflow 960, great colors

      Cons

      • 3D glasses should be included for the price, all remotes should be backlite

      Best Uses

        This TV is all about image and picture quality, and it does not disappoint in that regard. Images are crisp, sharp and clear, in fact, this TV shows the weakness of inferior station signals as it is almost too good for some broadcast channels. Colors are realistic, bright and do not have to be boosted. The motionflow is incredible in the clear mode. I watch a lot of high speed sports, and this TV has the least blur in movement I have ever seen. I have watched football, U.S. Open tennis, baseball, Olympic basketball and repeats of last year's hockey and the motionflow makes all of them a very enjoyable viewing experience. This TV replaced my Sony EX700 ( which I loved) and is clearly a couple of notches above that level. It is an attractive TV with a thin bezel around the edge, so you see mostly picture within the thin frame. The gorilla glass is awesome with no reflections if placed properly in a room. As far as the apps and internet part, I can't tell you much as that is not what I purchased this TV for. Those features are what I have the Sony internet google box and my Vaio all-in-one computer for. I wanted this TV for picture quality, accurate color and watching fast action sports with the motionflow960, and it has delivered the goods to my complete satisfaction. I have yet to watch a blueray movie on it and I am looking forward to that experience. I have seen DVD movies on it, and the picture is very good. The out of box settings are very good and just need some tweaking to suit individual tastes. Some things I found helpful were: turn off light sensor and presence sensor, tone down color a little bit to 55, put scene select to Auto and motionflow to clear mode, lower sharpness to 25 as this TV seems to oversharpen images in HD and turn up resolution instead to 70. Most features in picture select should be turned off or disabled. I did a lot of research, read many reviews and viewed a wall of many different brands of TVs with the result being I am completely happy and satisfied with my choice. Like many products, it depends on what your priorities and wants are that should govern your choice. If yours are picture quality and color along with great motionflow as well as sleek looks, this TV will not disappoint.

        HX850 meets XBR Headon!

        By Anonymous

        from Cambridge, MD

        Pros

        • Has nearly all the XBR features

        Cons

        • None yet

        Best Uses

          I was planning to upgrade of an 46" XBR, however, that size TV is no longer available. I extensively compared the XBR features to the 46" HX850 and found, with the exception of a few minor features the HX850 appeared to be almost the same TV. So I ordered the TV and found the picture quality is virtually the same as my very first XBR's picture quality. A perfect choice for us! I like me, you must have a smaller TV #less than 55"# and still insist on the XBR picture and quality, I would highly recommend the HX850. Plus, the 46"HX850 it is more the $1,000 cheaper than the base level 55" XBR TV with nearly the exact same features.

          Best LED TV Ever

          By TVDealer

          from Florida

          This is a great TV if set up properly. Just turn off presence sensor and light sensor and decrease color to 55 or 56. Leave motionflow at standard unless streaming SD, then it should be set off. Otherwise, leave motionflow to standard. Do not use any setting other than standard or OFF. Set sound to standard and turn on auto-volume. Set scene select to auto and you are finished. You will see incredible clarity and color accuracy. The light coming through the Gorilla Glass is amazing and makes traditional LCDs and LEDs look antiquated.
