Was torn between the Sony Bravia KDL - 55HX729 and the Samsung UN55D8000 - Now that we have the TV home - we are so glad we went with the SONY! If you are on the fence and trying to decide and if you are a movie lover, this is the TV for you. I recommend getting a 3D Blu Ray player and Monster Cables - YOU WONT BELIEVE YOUR EYES. Glad I chose this 3D HDTV - wish I had seen the reviews before but glad i made the choice. thanks to the BestBuy salesman who advised the Sony TV was a better TV - I now see why! You Won't Be Sorry!

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.

COMES UP SHORT

By 

from FORT WORTH, TX

Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

From a 'monitor' stand point this thing is awesome. The picture quality, out of the box, is dead on accurate. From a TV stand point #receiving over-the-air terrestrial signals# this product come up way short. TV channel favorites is buried deep in the menu structure, no quick access from the remote. The system requires boot time, so don't wait till the last minute to watch your favorite show. Plan on two to three minutes for the system to stabilize and give you control. From a streaming stand point this product comes up short again. The lack of onboard memory leaves the streaming-video quality at the mercy of your internet connection. Pauses and pixilation is the norm with U-Verse maximum speed. Streaming through my PS3 to this as a monitor is awesome. # It has memory which will buffer streaming delays. #

The best in class Feb 2013

By 

from Hong Kong

Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

A large investment - yes. But like any large investment, the last thing you want is to ask after a few weeks - "Maybe i should have paid more for a better one". This is something which is going to last years until the 4K TV is standard and we have sources recorded in 4K, non of this artificial interpolated nonsense. Plus the cost of 4K TV is going to waaay too high - if available in 55" that is. By the time 4K TV is popular the technology of 4K now will be very dated. Like many others, i looked at the HX850 55"..looks excellent and was top of the list for me. But in the showroom there was a HX950, i auditioned both from the same source and it was obvious why the premium. The contrast is just so much better in dim scenes, if you watch movies on blueray/dvd and appreciate details then the HX950 delivers the "cream" - like froth on your expresso :-) It's like listening to standard headphones and moving on to audiophile headphones - you don't know what you are missing until you experienced it! The competitors also do very good top end (similar to HX850)..but HX950 still is king for me anyway. People who say blooming problems etc..check out some forums where experts has the settings tuned to perfection after hours/days of experimenting - plus i do not look at the white logo of a spinning object all day long. 3D was admittedly not the best of the crop - off horizontal did show some flaws and flickers. The depth of the 3D was improved by some contrast settings (dedicated forums..) t But considering i have only four 3D movies in blueray - it was not a killer for me. If you want the best, feel sexy and proud to own a sexy TV + willing to play around and research the best settings - this is for you. Be the envy of your friends - get the HX950 or be the envier of your friend who owns the HX950.

The *Best* LED TV ever made

By 

from New Hampshire

Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

This is the best LED TV ever made. I work in a big box store and sell TV's all day. This XBR HX 950 and the Panasonic VT50 are the best TV's on the market. This TV is beyond any other LED, even LED's that are much more expensive. It looks better than all the plasma's I have seen, other than the VT50 series. Personally I think that the HX950 produces better colors and deeper blacks than the VT50, but to each his/her own. SONY is the only company that has created an LED TV that looks like a plasma! This was always thought to be impossible! I finally purchased this TV after selling it for a few months. I'm thoroughly impressed, and I hope Sony will continue to prove that they are still the best.

Excellent TV

By 

from Collierville, TN

Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

We got this tv to replace a projection tv that was dying. Both the old set and this set were 55 inch 1080P tvs, but the picture quality of the HX850 blows the old tv away. The colors are more vibrant the blacks are extremely deep. We do not use the streaming services very often, but we have not experienced any problems the few times we have. I love the way the tv and my Sony Blu-ray integrate, the input switches to the Blu-ray when the device is powered on and returns to it's original setting when the unit is turned off!

Exceptional Quality

By 

from Savannah, GA

Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

I purchased this TV from Sony early October and have been very pleased since. Over all quality and experience have been outstanding. There are some issues with the boot up time of certain applications. It would be nice for the kids to just press the Netflix button on the remote and begin watching after turning it on but it takes several minutes to begin working. The menues are a bit convoluted at times, it was not intuitive at all to find where to turn off Overscan. [Home Menu > Settings > Picture and Display > Screen > Auto Display Area “Off� > Display Area “Full Pixel. Thats right, not in options > picture adjustments...] There is a bit of tweaking you will need to do to get the picture perfect, this is due to the local-dimming I think but well worth the effort. Changing the LED Dynamic Control setting to Low will help a great deal with the "Halos" you will see people mention. If you are shopping around do not make the mistake of comparing this TV to anything less than local-dimming. If picture quality is your goal then you will need to pay more for it...

Amazing!!!!!!

By 

from Massachusetts

Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

This TV preformed flawlessly right out of the box! Wireless set was a snap. Sports and action movies are incredible to watch with real life color and amazing detail. Friends who stop over are very impressed with the picture quality. What a difference full array LED makes. I did a lot of homework and comparisons before making this purchase and I am completely satisfied with Sony and this tv.

    Its not greater than other TV's in the market.

    By 

    from Shirley, NY

    Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

    I bought this TV about a month ago. It looks very nice but works horrible. Every time I power it on it takes two minutes to get it going even to change a channel or input source. Its harder to go on the apps or any online related think once you power it it takes about 3 to 4 minutes. Web browser is horrible. You can not navigate the browser with the remote and they dont sell any wireless keyboard or mouse for it. I would not recommend this smart tv.
